A werewolf who does not belong to a pack.
A werewolf can go loner at any time, but it usually happens for a specific reason within the first few years of metamorphosis. The werewolf in question fails to bond with the Alpha, usually because the unbonded is too Alpha himself. Loners are unstable, and fight constantly. The position of dewan can only be held by a loner.
- "Loners were dangerous: community-oriented animals cut off from the very social structure that kept them sane and controlled...But brawling, violence, feasting on human flesh, and other such illogical carnage - that was the loner's game. They were more common than vampire roves, and far more dangerous." (Soulless, Chapter Three)
