Powers and Abilities

Mowgli is extremely athletic, and is experienced at surviving in harsh environments. He has travelled widely, acting as ambassador and spy for Fabletown, and could well know more languages than those listed above. He can also communicate with wolves.

Like all Fables, he is extremely long-lived, and is difficult to kill, allegedly based on the popularity of their tales.


History

[A fuller history of Fabletown can be found in the main article]

Once upon a time a human baby was adopted by wolves, who called him Mowgli the Frog because he was furless. When the tiger, Shere Khan, demanded that the wolves hand him over, they refused. Instead they raised him as one of their pack, where he stayed for the first twelve years of his life.

Mowgli befriended the black panther, Bagheera, and the bear, Baloo, but had frequent problems with Shere Khan, who continued to hunt him.

Fabletown

When the Adversary’s forces reached their lands, Mowgli and his friends were forced to flee, eventually finding refuge in the mundane world. Mowgli took a job as a Tourist for Fabletown, travelling the world as their eyes and ears, checking up on the Fables who lived beyond Fabletown to ensure they still obeyed its laws.

He recently began negotiating an alliance between Fabletown and the Arabian Fables (which became unofficially called Fabletown East). On being recalled to Fabletown, he found Shere Khan dead from the revolt on the Farm, and Bagheera imprisoned for his part in it. Prince Charming offered Bagheera’s freedom in exchange for a job outside Mowgli’s normal duties: to find Bigby and bring him back to perform a mission.

Accepting the task, Mowgli spent months on Bigby’s trail, reaching an apparent dead end in Siberia. Even the wolves Bigby had spent time with didn’t know where he had gone from there. Eventually realising Bigby’s abilities would let him swim the Bering Strait, Mowgli tracked Bigby to a remote cabin in the Alaskan wilderness, and convinced him to return.

They returned to Fabletown, Bagheera was released, and Mowgli returned to his Tourist duties.


Personality

Calm and even-tempered, Mowgli carries himself with an easy confidence, using diplomacy as much as he can in most situations. Despite his apparent ease in most situations, he’s only truly happy when away from civilization, when he can shed his clothes and run free.


Quotes

“I am Mowgli of the Seeonee wolf pack.”
