The Werewolf of Fever Swamp - Original Illustration

Will Blake is the main antagonist of the fourteenth Goosebumps book, The Werewolf of Fever Swamp, and the tertiary antagonist of the Goosebumps film.

History

Grady Tucker first met Will after Grady's family moved into their new home in Florida. The boys quickly became friends. When Grady met Cassie later on, he learned of werewolves and one most likely existing in Fever Swamp not too far from his house, due to animal killings and a hunter gone missing. Will did not believe in such things and often argued with Cassie that werewolves are not real. As days went by, Grady eventually ventured into the swamp alone with Will. When Will vanished a few minutes after Grady entered the swamp he started looking for him. Then Grady was attacked and bit by the werewolf who he realizes from the facial features is Will. Luckily for Grady before he passed out, Grady's dog Wolf attacked Will and fought him off. After The Swamp Hermit witnessed their fight, he brought Grady home where his father told him what the Swamp Hermit witnessed. Grady had his dad check Will's house, only to find the house mangled and no one living there. After that night, Grady soon learned that Will cursed him when he bit him. With Will gone, he has the swamp all for himself and now goes with Wolf on hunts and explorations in Fever Swamp during full moon nights.

The TV show version of Will's character is slightly different from his book counterpart. In the TV episode, he believes in werewolves and accuses the swamp hermit of being one as opposed to the novella where he scoffed at Cassie's beliefs in them. It is also stated that he killed the Swamp Hermit's wife and children (which was never stated nor implied in the original novella). Grady ran into the Swamp Hermit when his net caught what was the werewolf when he actually caught a deer. The Swamp Hermit is then attacked and killed by the werewolf. When the full moon is obscured by clouds, Will partially reverts back to human form. Having become a friend to Grady, Will warns him to leave before he becomes uncontrollable again. But the moon becomes visible again and Will begins compulsively howling as he turns back into a savage beast. As Will attacks Grady, Wolf showed up to defend Grady. Wolf knocked Will into the quicksand-acting bog of Fever Swamp and he sank to the bottom. What appeared to be his skeleton rises from the swamp the next night.
