Mandy Marwick, more commonly known as Wolf Boy, Marwick or Boy 409 is a boy who was in the Young Army at the same time as Septimus Heap. He and Sam Heap are a gay couple.[1]


Young Army

In his first years of life he was an expendable boy in the Young Army. He and his brothers were forced into the army because of their family being "traitors". It is revealed in Fyre that his father was a Custodian Guard who made offensive jokes about the Supreme Custodian. He was numbered as Boy 409, and is best friends with Boy 412, or Septimus Heap. He saved Septimus on a Do-or-Die exercise by startling the leader of a wolverine pack, giving him and Septimus enough time to escape. One day, on a boat to another Do-or-Die exercise, he fell off and disappeared, presumed dead until a few years later...[citation needed]

After Young Army

After he fell off the boat he swam to the forest shore and spent four years alone in the forest, living with wolverines (and acting like them ) without speaking one word until he was found by the occupants of Camp Heap. He later was discovered by Septimus: his old Young Army mate.[citation needed]

Trapped On an island with Lucy Gringe

Wolf Boy taught Jenna, Beetle, Nicko, Snorri, Lucy and Jakey Fry how to play Village Chief - a fast-moving game involing shells, scooped out dips in the sand, and much shouting. Last appeared on page 604. He was asking if Septimus if he wanted to play Village Chief.[2]

After the Darke Domain

Wolfboy came to the Palace with Aunt Zelda for Septimus and Jenna's birthday celebration.[3]

Wolf Boy became the Keeper after the death of Aunt Zelda.[4]


Wolf Boy is a triplet, along with his two triplet brothers, Marcus and Matthew Marwick (also known as Matt), who were know as Boy 410 and Boy 411 in the Young Army.

Physical attributes

A very skinny yet strong light brown skinned boy, with long matted black dreadlocks (known as the forest style), and brown eyes which are always checking his surroundings, and the people around him, out. He wears a short tunic of indeterminate color, which is tied around his waist with an old leather belt.[4] Smells of fresh damp earth. Looks and acts like a Wolverine from time to time, especially when scared.
