Dragons & Wolves is a serialized, character driven drama based on, but not limited to, the Dragon Tales & Stories trilogy written by Drew Henriksen and published by ArcheBooks, Italian publisher Armenia, Draghi E Lupi. It tells the story of a mythical family through four hundred years. Told in the form of a western, viewers may not realize it takes place a few centuries after a plague wiped out most of humanity. With different supernatural beings such as dragons, warlocks, and werewolves it follows the character of Randy on his quest to save mankind. The focus is on well-developed characters reacting to situations as we would with flashbacks to the 1970s & 2000s.
