Notes: Ruth is a British teenager who was cubnapped from Wolf Woods while on a school trip to the States. When she arrived she was a weedy bookworm from a strict Christian home. Since then she has developed a physique, a backbone, a tan, a sympathetic ear, and a rather cynical opinion of everything she was taught prior to finding out she was Garou.
