He hunted down and destroyed the vampire who had caused him so much anguish. Vengeance satisfied he found other men and women of similar spirit and helped them find the path of the Wolf. He hates vampires to this day and will do anything in his considerable to destroy them.
Dozer had his heart ripped out by a Wild Fae Wolf and in order to survive he made a pact with Chernobog, the god of winter and wolves. Through his sympathetic link to the Pack Chernobog was able to corrupt them and attempted to take them over. Craig BigEagle was able to purify The Pack with a ritual ending that influence but in the process Dozer lost access to his Wolf.
