Excellent. I'm prepared for the werwulf being a badass mofo. Alexander wasn't prepared for the first encounter and probably won't be for the inevitable second encounter either. I'd say he didn't even get a good look at the beast in action in between being pummeled and thrown around by it.
I rather like the fact that only after writing that did I realize that Alexander is a great counterpart for Memoria, with his proficiency with beasts and her specialization on the spiritual.
