Real Name: Louis Castantini, Jr.
Origin: Knowlton Township, NJ
There's a limit to a man's quiet and calm and Louis "Lonny" Castantini, Jr. knows it better than most.
As a construction worker, Lonny toiled silently to earn his pay and his tireless work ethic was noticed by more than his boss. This included Sykes, a senior man on the job known for his temper who season after season lost work to the silent worker.
Too curious about the quiet man to know his bounds, Sykes and the other men followed him home to a beautiful hand-built cabin. A few empty beer cans spilled out of their trucks when the men stepped out to call for him.
Lonny's truck was there and the house lights were on but he was no where to be seen.
Alcohol took over. Rocks and beer bottles shattered windows. Soon enough a large amber-colored wolf appeared at the mouth of a path leading away from the house. Sykes joked Lonny would rather send his pet to "talk" with the men. With a single lucky gunshot, the wolf was killed in the path. While the other men set out to wreak havoc, Sykes skinned the wolf and put the fur and knife on the hood of his truck.
Lonny's cabin went up in smoke and fire. When they heard the screams, the men left in a hurry causing the pelt and knife to slip off Sykes' truck. They didn't know he lived and worked on a wolf preserve, though, and his house was connected to a rehabilitation center for wounded canines. They also didn't know his sleeping wife and child were in the house when it burnt down.
Lonny returned several hours later from his duties on the preserve. He literally lost everything; his family, his home, his truck, his livelihood were all destroyed.
Loony spent lonely days and nights lamenting the loss of everything, his only friends the wolves in the wild.
We're not sure what happened to Lonny out there or what the wolves did for him. But we do know what happened to Sykes and those men. They were found skinless and gnawed upon, burnt beyond recognition and always in the woods.
We're his family now and he guards us well.
