A Scottish mutant, Wolfsbane possesses the ability to transform into a wolf or into a transitional state somewhere between human and wolf. She has honed her powers to shift between human and wolf characteristics but must keep her feral instincts at bay when she does.

Rahne (pronounced "Rain") is Scottish (born somewhere in Ross and Cromarty). Rahne was raised as an orphan by an abusive pastor named Reverend Craig who beat religion into her from an early age. When she was revealed as a mutant, Reverend Craig led an angry mob intending to burn her at the stake. Rahne was rescued and later adopted by Moira MacTaggert. Later, when she confronted Reverend Craig as an adult, she learned that Reverend Craig was actually her biological father and that her mother had been a prostitute. She was recruited by Professor X to become a student at his School for Gifted Youngsters, and to join the original New Mutants.

Rahne was the second youngest of the New Mutants, who often operated as adventurers when not in school. Although she was a shy, emotionally repressed girl, Rahne managed to build a strong friendship with Danielle Moonstar and harbor a crush on Sam Guthrie. Danielle discovered she was able to establish a psychic link with Rahne when the latter was in wolf or wolfoid form. Rahne's strict religious upbringing often made her uncomfortable when dealing with mythological entities, her sorceress teammate Magik, or demons, as well as making her uncomfortable almost to the point of self-loathing with her superhuman power, which resembles the transformations of a werewolf.

These feelings were at odds with the pure joy she found in using her powers, causing a deep emotional conflict. She was disturbed to find herself attracted to Hrimhari, a shapeshifting wolf prince while in Asgard, and although he became her first serious love, she decided to return to Earth. Rahne eventually began a relationship with teammate Cypher, and was devastated when he was killed by the Ani-Mator. On one of her two visits to Asgard, she met the demonic Garmr, a gigantic wolf who guards the entrance to the netherworld. She confesses to Rictor that Garm's face, 'that devil's face', is what she sometimes perceives when looking into the mirror. Later, she began an innocent romance with Rictor, but this proved to be short-lived.

Rahne spent some time motorcycling across the United States after losing her powers in a confrontation. She adopted a new, less introverted persona. This involved the growing out of her hair from its normal short buzz-cut and the loss of her Scottish burr. Upon her return to New York, she defeated rampaging X-Man villain Avalanche with no back-up. She became both a teaching assistant at the Xavier Institute and a part-time employee of Jamie Madrox's detective agency, X-Factor Investigations. Prior to her joining the Institute faculty, Rahne becomes involved in a relationship with Elixir. A passionate encounter between the two caused Elixir's mutant healing abilities to restore Rahne's powers; however, Rahne's reversion to her wolf form prompts a tragic moment of savagery that left Elixir seriously wounded.

Elixir was able to heal himself, and Rahne was brought back to her senses by an encounter with Danielle Moonstar on the darkened streets of Salem Center. Rahne opted to end the relationship when she was hired as a teacher for the Institute. Though Rahne was initially resistant to continuing the relationship, the two began seeing one another secretly until Rahne ended it upon learning that Elixir's classmate Wallflower is interested in him. Rahne's ending of the relationship was overheard by Wither, and he later released the information to the whole school, in an attempt to end Elixir's budding relationship with Wallflower. In the wake of this, Rahne resigned from the school, and her formerly close friendship with Dani Moonstar, Elixir's legal guardian, became strained.

Rahne is now back to working as a Private Investigator and has rejoined as a member of the X-Men, based at the X-Mansion.


Wolfsbane is a mutant with the ability to transform herself into a wolf at will, while retaining her human intelligence, or into a transitional form which combines human and lupine aspects; while this ability is lycanthropy, it is not magical in nature, but a complex biological function involving the mutant X-gene. She can change into a humanoid lupine form resembling a werewolf, or become an actual red wolf. In either form, Wolfsbane has enhanced senses of hearing, sight, and smell (similar to those of a wolf's, but also superior to them); animal-like strength, agility, and reflexes; razor-sharp talons and fangs; and bestial instincts.

In lupine form she can also see into the infrared and ultraviolet portions of the spectrum, thereby enabling her to perceive heat patterns and to see in the dark. In her lupine form she can also hear sounds and detect scents outside the normal human range. In her transitional form she is less agile than she is as a wolf, but stronger than she is in human form. In her transitional form she can speak, use her forepaws as hands and easily stand erect, and at least some of her senses remain superhumanly acute.

I am not Rahne Sinclair or Wolfsbane. She belongs to the brilliant mind of Stan Lee. She is based on a mix of X-Men comic and movie verse, though due to her extensive and varied comic background, not all of it will be encompassed within this muse. I am not Keira Knightley, Wolfsbane's PB, she belongs to herself. Not affiliated with the creators of X-Men or Marvel whatsoever. This journal is for muse purposes only.
