Behind the scenesEdit
Greywolf, the idea that he is a werewolf, and the other wolfs under Icebella are are a reference to the wolves and werewolves that were under the command of the White Witch in the Chronicles of Narnia books lead by Maugrim/Fenris Ulf. In early development of KQ5, Icebella was even known as the 'Ice Witch' a more direct reference to her Narnian counterpart.
In the game Graham refers to the character as Sir Wolf, and Icebella calls him Sir Greywolf.
Greywolf is referred to as a changeling, but this could be in reference to him being a shapeshifter, rather than having been swapped as a baby, see The Baby Swap. But then again calling him a werewolf and a shapeshifter/changeling would be redundant. So it might actually be referring to traditional definition of changeling.
A changeling is a human-like creature found in folklore and folk religion throughout Europe. A changeling was believed to be a fairy child that had been left in place of a human child stolen by the fairies. The theme of the swapped child is common in medieval literature and reflects concern over infants thought to be afflicted with unexplained diseases, disorders, or developmental disabilities.
