Cliff Ward was a Werewolf and a member of the North American Werewolf pack until his death in 1981. He was a follower of Malcolm Danvers and peripheral member of the Pack, Clayton Danvers describes him in a Savage as 'a young man no older than Jeremy, with an insincere smile and eyes that always darted on contact.' He had an old shoulder injury that would act up at times. After his death he is described by Clay as 'a nonplayer, a sycophant of Malcolm's with no power or position in the Pack.'
In the novella Savage he is in attendance at the quarterly Pack meet where Clayton Danvers is introduced to the Pack and becomes an official member. He shoots a grin at Stephen Santos for insulting Gregory Sorrentino. He made fun of Clay's accent and disagreed with Dominic Sorrentino's decision to allow him to join the Pack, although he stayed silent.
Cliff appears for the last time in the novella Ascension, a sequel to the previous novella. He was one of the participants in a deer hunt and after Changing back to human form was displeased with Dominic's decision to have Jeremy look at his shoulder which was acting up. Malcolm later invited him to spend time at Stonehaven to torment Jeremy. Cliff is mentioned to have died in 1981 during a mutt fight.
