Logan has been with the Xavier Academy since about 2011. A rough man with a dark, but hidden past, he's had time to work through some of his rougher aspects over the years. Make no mistake, though, he's still Wolverine. He's been acting groundskeeper and handyman at the school for a long time now. In 2020 he went on a road trip to seek out moe of his past, which is when he found Rogue, bringing her to join the odd bunch.
1881: James Howlett is born to wealthy parents in Alberta, Canada. He is frail and unhealthy due to an overreactive mutant immune system. He was neglected by his mother, who was institutionalized after the death of her first son.
1897: The groundskeeper murders James' father, and his powers manifest for the first time. He kills the groundskeeper (Not aware he is his real father), before maiming the groundskeeper's son and friend, before fleeing into the Canadian wilderness with his childhood friend, Rose.
1897 - 1905: The trauma is smoothed over by his powers, leaving him a partial amnesiac. The two settle in a logging camp, where Rose claims he is her cousin 'Logan'. Over time he grows healthier and stronger. He grows bored, though, and he hones his abilities fighting for extra money. In 1905, however, he gets into a heated argument with Rose over his drinking and fighting, and he accidentally kills her with his claws.
1905-1914: Logan retreats into the wilderness, living as a wild hermit. He flees from people, trying to become a beast so that he can forget the pain of being a man. War comes to Canada, however, and he is shaken from his stupor when he discovers what is happening overseas. Seeking death he doubts can come, he joins the Canadian Armed Forces.
1914-1918: Logan finds himself in war. He becomes "Lucky" Logan due to his incredible ability to survive. After the war he leaves the military, though he will find himself returning to it many times.
1918-1939: He wanders, trying to keep to himself. He ends up in briefly in love with a woman in a Japanese Internment camp, and pursues her to Japan for some time before returning. While there he picks up the tenets of Bushido, which he spends decades considering.
1939-1945: World War 2 happens, and Logan rejoins the Canadian military. Questions are raised about his age, but it's brushed under the rug for now...though his name ends up in some files that will come back to haunt him. he ends up in the special forces, working hand in hand with other Allies forces, including some famous names. For a period of time he is attached as a Canadian liasion to the Howling Commandoes, for instance. He helps free the concentration camps, unknowingly meeting a child that will one day become one of his greatest foes.
1945-1950: He returns to trying to live his own life, taking up reading and gardening. Most folks don't know he can quote Kerouac or Ginsberg and similar, and he likes it that way. Then Korea happens, and he's right back at it. Throughout this he has numerous encounters with once-friend-now-enemy, Creed.
1950-1953: He fights in the Korean War. He hates himself, but bloodshed is the only thing he finds himself good at.
1953-1965: He seeks peace, spending some time traveling Europe and Asia. He spends a good period of time working on a farm in France before war draws him back to America.
1965-1975: The Vietnam War. He still has nightmares about this time and the terrible things he did and witnessed. He did bad things, but also found himself hunting American soldiers turned monster on more then one occassion. That war effected people unlike any he had seen previous. He left shaken, as did everyone else.
1975-1985: Logan tries to keep to himself. He spends time on the road, settling briefly before moving on again. Anti-Mutant issues find him killing again and again, and he grows more and more tired. He's a hero deep down, and he keeps ending up sticking his neck out for people and then regretting it afterwards. He keeps telling himself he is NOT a good guy. In 1980 he settles in Denver, getting a job at a vending machine factory. He toys with settling down with a woman, until he draws the attention of some Purifiers. The woman is killed, and he moves on.
1985: Weapon-X happens. He is kidnapped by a Government Program and forcibly infused with adamantium. The intense trauma is wiped by his powers again, leaving him an amnesiac. He kills a lot of people on his way out.
1987-2000: Practically feral, he roams the wilds. He is
eventually taken in by a small family, where they help coax his humanity out a bit. He leaves when Purifiers begin sniffing around.
2011-2020: Logan ends up encountering the X-Men, and after some terse situations, he settles with them. It is difficult at first, but over the following decade he proves himselt to them (ANd them to him). He is there for numerous important missions, and they help break through his tough exterior to something deep within. Some memories return, but many others are still gone. Eventually he leaves, finding an abandoned Weapon-X facility in Canada. The motel he's staying at is beside a truck stop, where he encounters Rogue. He helps save her from an angry mob, and the two of them end up on a road trip, where his car is destroyed by the Brotherhood. Eventually he hooks her up with the X-Men, and the rest is history.
Logan will stand 'tall' when most other people would turn tail. Being pretty much unkillable makes it very easy to be brave, however. He will stand up to most foes, and keep fighting when others have fled.
Logan is a Wave Man. Ronin. He spent time in Japan a few times over the years, and even spent time learning under one of the last samurai. He adores a romanticized ideal of Bushido. He violates the tenets often, but he TRIES. One day he might have someone like his Daimyo. Someone he trusts to lead. Someone he can follow. Until then he does what he can.
Sometimes Logan lives by his instincts. When he hates someone, he hates them. When he wants someone, he wants someone. He fights when he wants, drinks when he wants, and does other things when he wants. When really in a mood, he's hard to discern from an animal. His animal nature bubbles up from time to time, especially in combat.
Logan would rarely admit it, but he's lonely. He barely remembers most of his life, but he somehow KNOWS he's been at this awhile...and alone while doing so. He has stayed with the School for now because he feels like he has nobody else to go to...even if he refuses to tell himself that.
He can be more then a little stand-offish. Not a ton of people like Logan, and those that do really had to work at it. He pushes buttons, and he riles people up. He comes off selfish and short (And no, that isn't a height joke).
Logan has claws! He grows three claws from each hand. Each one is 7 1/2 inches, which is about the length of his forearm. Currently they are coated in adamantium, which is further discussed under the Adamantium Resource. His actual claws are the bone spurs underneath the metal. They can cut through anything up to the strength of adamantium...which is just about anything.
This power is natural to Logan, and not something granted by the Weapon-X Program. He heals at an absolutely absurd rate. Bullets push out of him over the course of a minute or two, while burns or severe wounds might take hours or even days. He can heal back from anything, as far as he is aware. He has been stabbed, blown up, cut to pieces and worse...and as terrible as it is, he tends to come back from it eventually. He doesn't heal instantly, but it is far quicker then others. Also, yes. It still hurts.
Logan has incredible smell and hearing. He can pick up on the most minute of smells to the point of tracking by scent, or picking up on somebodies emotions by the smells they give off. It can be incredibly distracting, and he sometimes hates that it is almost impossible to lie to him because of it. He can also hear insanely well, listening in on far-off conversations, or listening to heartbeats. He tries to dull these a bit by smoking heavily. It only works a little.
You wouldn't expect Logan to like reading, but he does. He's no scientist, and he doesn't really care about any of that, but he does like sitting down by the fire with some Ginsberg or Kerouac, or classic writers and poets. Most wouldn't expect it, but it's true.
Logan can kill with the best of them. He knows how to handle and clean a gun, though he doesn't prefer them. He is an expert brawler, and is very good at taking his opponents apart. He also knows several forms of martial arts, but he primarily uses them for the understanding of how to defeat people who use them. He is also good with a knife, though, once again, he prefers to brawl or claw.
He knows how to maintain plants and estates from some time he spent doing so back in the day. He can keep the gardens and lawns and trees going, while also knowing which paint to use to touch up a fence, or how to fix a broken faucet or piping, etc. He would make a great groundskeeper and handyman.
Logan has been around the world, and he has had many years to learn languages. He doesn't even know he KNOWS most of these. However, when he hears them he might slowly begin to peace it together again. He speaks: English, Japanese, Russian, German, Chinese (Both), Korean, French, Spanish, Norwegian, several Native American dialects, Vietnamese and ASL.
He's no ninja, but he was in special forces. He knows how to keep quiet while at work, and he can usually get into and out of a building without making a sound (Though sometimes leaving a few bodies behind).
He has spent many years surviving in the wild. He knows how to hunt and track with the best of them. He can read the weather and knows intricate details about the way the wild and animals work. He can find or make shelter, as well as traps and other similar things. He understands climbing, spelunking, and other forms of wilderness travel.
Logan's skeleton is coated in a thin layer of adamantium. This is only possible because of his healing factor. His bones and claws are almost unbreakable. This allows him to take incredible blows without breaking, and also protects his brain and spine from almost anything. Since his skeleton is so reinforced, he is capable of lifting far more then someone his size should be able to lift...roughly 800 lbs. In truly tense situations, he has liften upwards of 2 tons before, but he suffers pretty severe muscle damage he needs to heal.
He has a 1948 Harley Davidson. He has had the bike since it came out, even if he doesn't remember it. It's one of his few beloved possessions.
He has a few boltholes across the world. Some he remembers, others he only remembers in a bust of memory. From cabins in the wild to tiny apartments in Singapore, he has places all over. Most are not fancy, but they do the trick in a pinch.
He is a new member at the Xavier School. He is the groundskeeper and handyman, while also beginning to work with the team. He has a long way to go to fully gain trust, but he can call on the resources of the team and school.
He's lost most of his memories. He does not know who he really is or where he is from. Sometimes he regains memories from a trigger like a sound or scent or something. His life is a jumble of trying to put odd parts together into a whole. He doesn't even know how old he is, or where he is from.
He might not remember THEM, but plenty of folks remember HIM. Logan has a lot of enemies. Some are government agencies, while others are former best friends turned psychopaths, or betrayed partners, or extremists, and all kinds of other things.
He is lonely, and he wants to belong. However, under all of that he often pushes people away. It makes it hard to belong and foster any kind of relationship that really matters.
Oh boy, does Logan have a temper. It is not hard to push his buttons and get a rise out of him. Usually this just involves him yelling and throwing a fit and holding a grudge, but it is possible to push him to real violence.
