Since the day when a wolf bite left him afflicted with a particularly virulent strain of lycanthropy, Count Von Sabrewulf has lived in exile in his remote mountain tower, shunned by society, and struggling with insanity as his disease grows steadily worse. A handful of years back his worst nightmare was realized when he failed to revert to human form at all. Every rumor of a possible cure has been at best a hoax, so when a message arrives promising salvation should he enter and win the Ultratech contest, Sabrewulf is highly suspicious but obliged to seize any chance that comes his way.

I suppose a werewolf can only have so much personality, but Sabrewulf had an undeniably cool fighting style and charisma in the 90's fighting game world. He's probably among the most memorable character designs in the Killer Instinct series, and also one of the most fun characters to use. Some people might just dub him as an oversized wolf in a pair of pants, but hey... He's a werewolf, and that's the dress code for werewolves. For the record, in the original KI, he only wore a shirt (no pants)... which was slightly awkward. I'm glad he finally decided to cover up his shame in KI2. lol.
