Ross Werner was a Werewolf and member of the North American Werewolf Pack. He was born sometime prior to 1946, presumably to a member of the Pack and a black mother. He is described as being at least as old as Dominic Sorrentino in the novella Savage making him around seventy in 1970. He is first mentioned in the short story Infusion and had died at some point before Elena Michaels joined the Pack in 1989. He was considered a peripheral member of the Pack as he wasn't descended from one of the three founding families.
He is mentioned by Dominic Sorrentino to have had a black mother and that you could 'hardly tell'
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 calls Clay a good looking young man and congratulates Jeremy Danvers for doing a fine job with him. He disapproved of Stephen Santos calling Gregory Sorrentino a retard and approved of Clay being made a member of the Pack.
Ross 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, after Changing back he was the first to notice the new truck that had been bought for Jeremy. He is assumed to have been in attendance at the last Pack meet Dominic held before his death and is known to have been at the Sorrentino estate after the funeral. When it came time to vote for the next Alpha he asked for the two days allowed to Pack members to consider his vote, before he could be called upon to offer up his vote he decided to leave the Pack instead. A few months after Jeremy rose to Alpha, Ross returned to the Pack and was accepted back without comment.
- Clay described him as a fence sitter, the type of man who doesn't want to offend anyone.
