U.S. Civil War History (semi-fictional)
James Howlett: Born sometime in the early to mid 19th century (1800’s), purportedly to farm owners John and Elizabeth Howlett. At an early age, it was clear James had a unique genetic anomaly. Possessing an advance cellular regeneration ability, his body could rapidly heal itself, making him impervious wounds that normally would be considered fatal. From this, speculation arose to his true parentage and the possibility of him being the offspring of groundskeeper Thomas Logan.
Years later, a confrontation arose between the two possible fathers, resulting in the death of John Howlett. James, still a young boy and believing John to be his true father, found himself in a state of pure rage. Three jagged, animal-like, bone claws emerged between his knuckles on both of his clenched fists. He lashed out towards Thomas Logan, leaving him mortally wounded with massive lacerations.
Confused and emotionally unstable, James flees the Howlett Farm and heads into the Canadian Wilderness. During this time, he is rumored to have lived among packs of wolves and eventually alongside the Blackfoot Indians. After decades of living in the wild, he returns to the civilized world, now referring to himself as “Logan”.
Wanting to create a new life for himself, Logan migrates south to find work in the newly forming North-Western American States. Not long after, he finds himself embattled in the bloodiest conflict in U.S. history.
