The Wolf Among Us is a five episode series from the creators of the 2012 Game of the Year: The Walking Dead. Based on Fables (DC Comics/Vertigo), an award-winning comic book series, it is an often violent, mature and hard-boiled thriller where the characters and creatures of myth, lore and legend are real and exist in our world.

As Bigby Wolf - THE big bad wolf in human form - you will discover that the brutal, bloody murder of a Fable is just a taste of things to come, in a game series where your every decision can have enormous consequences.

* Your choices matter: it's not only WHAT you choose to do that will affect how your story plays out, but WHEN you choose to do it
* A mature and gritty take on characters from fairytales, legends and folklore who have escaped into our world. These are not the characters you'd see on a little child's lunchbox.
* Play as Bigby Wolf: formerly the most feared monster among the Fables, now Sheriff of Fabletown and protector of those he used to hunt. He must restrain the beast within if he is to earn the trust of those around him.
* Choose Bigby's actions carefully. Will you approach a situation calmly or unleash your inner rage? The way you act will determine how others respond to you.
* Set before the events seen in the first issue of the comics – you don't have to know the characters or the world to play!



A winged monkey from the Oz tales, Bufkin acts as Fabletown's librarian and thus is generally found in the cavernous business office, where he both works and sleeps. Close to Boy Blue, he hid for a week when his friend left for the Homelands, thinking that he would be blamed for not stopping him. Bufkin lacks wisdom, although he is certainly not stupid, is occasionally mischievous and prone to drinking heavily and stealing the Mayor's booze, nevertheless he is generally a good worker and rarely complains. During the events of the Storybook Love arc, when everybody was out of the office, Bufkin came to the conclusion that he was now in charge and decided to rename Fabletown Bufkintown, a change that only lasted as long as it took somebody else to find out about it. He apparently reads a lot of the books in the library, and it is suggested that he has learned skills like lockpicking from this. On learning this Prince Charming threatened to kill Bufkin if he stole his alcohol again, Bufkin is then seen with another book—one relating to Political assassination. After the magics holding Fabletown together have been unravelled he was stranded in the business office along with all the formerly imprisoned fables. During this time he was able to bottle the Djinn and kill Baba Yaga and her knights by utilizing everything he has read (in this volume, several indirect allusions to the Wicked Witch of the West are made). He was aided by the Magic Mirror, Frankenstein's monster's head, the Barleycorn maidens and several heads of the captured wooden soldiers.

After this, Bufkin climbs the Business Office's tree and finds himself in Ev (a neighbor to the Land of Oz). He is accompanied by Lily, one of the Barleycorn maidens. While sitting in one of Ev's magic lunch box trees, he accidentally rescues a group of Oz-Fables from the Nome King enforcers. Bufkin then forms a resistance movement in order to overthrow the evil Nome King.



Bufkin is a green winged monkey that serves as Fabletown's librarian.

He has an entry within the Book of Fables in the game "The Wolf Among Us":

Bufkin is the talking, winged monkey
from the land of Oz. Now, as
Fabletown's librarian he spends his
time reading and stealing the deputy
mayor's booze. He's prone to
mischief, so when something goes
wrong he assumes he'll receive the
lion's share of the blame. He's
helpful when he wants to be, but
most of the time he'd rather be
drinking. Someone would have fired
him a long time ago, but he's the
only one who can make sense of the
filing system.
