Little is revealed about Young Wolf's childhood. He is the uncle of the chief Eagle Eye and would ultimately succeed him as chief as he had no children as his own.
Appearance and personality
Young Wolf is a teenage Shoshone Indian boy with long black hair and amber eyes. He dresses in a buckskin top and trousers and sports a pair of moccasins on his feet, as well as a tribal necklace and a headband. Young Wolf is a kind, welcoming individual. He is also quite playful and boyish, but when he becomes chief it is implied that while he matures, he retains his benevolent nature.
