A werewolf of speed, Evan "Van" Traverse was offered the bite in part to refill the position formerly filled by Isaac Lahey. More agile and evasive, Van is romantically interested in his alpha's sister, causing tension within the pack's dynamic.
Van usually appears in human form and can shift to varying degrees into a bipedal wolf-like creature with increased body hair, fangs, and glowing yellow eyes.
