The Wolffs are one of the oldest and proudest families in Moonlight Falls. The only other family that's been around as long is the Van Goulds, and these two clans are bitter rivals. Debate rages over the identity of the town's original founders, but the Wolffs will never surrender their claim. Will the Wolffs finally find the respect they feel they deserve or will Ayden Van Gould buy his way into Moonlight Falls history?
Pappy is the patriarch of the Wolff clan and was raised with the dogged belief that the Wolffs were the original settlers of Moonlight Falls... a claim hotly disputed by the Van Gould family. Pappy lives alone on the opposite end of town from all those "undead deadbeats". Will the Wolffs and Van Goulds continue their feud? Or can Pappy be the bigger Wolff and make peace?
