What would BigBy have done

Due to me not reading the Fable Comics, Im a bit left in the dark when you play as the character BigBy in "The wolf among us". Im not sure if others will get my point that I'm trying to make but my question is a bit "what would BigBy do"? Unlike in a book, the reader only control if they wish to read on or not, they would have no control over the choices and opinions that a character would make in a book and the flow of the book. But in "the wolf among us" (which I enjoy ever so much), I feel like the true personality of BigBy is tainted since you are given the power to reflect your personality through him. But from what Snow White says, BigBy enjoys when crap hits the fan and when a situation goes extremely bad. Could this be true or is he the opposite of of what she stated.

At this point, the question is more of what would BigBy have done, would he taken the pleasure in ripping Grendel arm off, killing Tweedledee, Georgie death request and lastly the choosing the death of the Crooked man "mostly killing him". Or not, based upon this and information you may know and to the best of you knowledge. What do you think BigBy would have done in these events.

Is he a wolf in sheeps clothing, a monster that must play by the rules but still cling to his old ways. Or is he truely a good person that reformed his life for the better but may still have these instincts. What do you think?


  • If he isn't controls by player, the case will end in ep3 :-S

  • Bigby doesn't really get into non-lethal fights in the comics very often. When he needs to make a threat, he makes a threat of death, and other people pretty much always back down.

    If someone is committing some financial crime or doing something that will bring too much attention to Fabletown, Bigby will investigate and simply tell the suspect what needs to happen and the suspect listens.

    He shows no pleasure in cutting loose against humans or other animals, but shows a willingness to do what he feels is necessary. When someone poses a threat of violence, Bigby is prepared to kill because that's what is necessary in his mind.

    However, he has at times been inclined to bring in even a dangerous suspect for a full, legitimate trial of his peers.

  • In the recent story looks like the author is throwing his centuries strive away , I feel very sad for that :'(

  • It is, and I generally don't like stories where heroes lose control of themselves and kill innocents. Even without control, if they ever regain it, it will be something to regret for years to come.

    But, I don't think this is a case of being going back to what he was before. What he was before was an intelligent wolf who didn't hesitate to kill whatever it was he wanted to eat. What he is now appears to be a monster completely lacking in reason. And I think that other issues strongly hint that this is only a temporary state.

  • o-wow, somebody responded, that was quick. Thanks for your thought and input.

    I enjoy reading and having a view of how you view BigBy and what he is like and would have done, please leave a thought.

  • To tell you, if the player wasn't given the power to influence choice for BigBy to make, the game would be rather ill. But if this was a book or a comic, than you would see the true side of him since no matter who you are, there wouldn't be a way to influence his actions nor what he thinks.

    Now I feel like I'm saying a comic would have been better.ehhhh
