Biowulf had always been a Beta.
Capable of leading, but wanting...longing for someone to follow. It made him feel needed, wanted, and valuable. Beta was the second highest position in pack hierarchy. It was a rank of power, but not absolute power. There was still someone to answer to, someone to obey, and someone to live for.
Perhaps it was the wolf in him...or the nanite interpretation of a synthetic wolf.
What had he been like before The Nanite Event? It seemed so distant...so far and away that it was more like a misty, half forgotten dream. The more he tried to remember it, the harder it became to decipher memories locked away and buried within the depths of his psyche. Images sometimes decided to flicker across his mind's eye.

He closes his eyes as he felt Rex's tiny arms wrap around his waist. It was getting harder to keep the tears in and one escaped from the corner of his eyes. He dipped his head lower to hide his face even though he knew there was no one else in the apartment. They stayed that way for a long time holding on to each other; crying the pain and shock away.
