Elias's Dad is kind of bombastic and unpredictable, friendly enough, but also interrupts you constantly. He is best described as casually rude, but not maliciously so.
The Sullivan family is more of a nomad type and they like to join packs instead, as it's easier to be an alpha when there's "already a pack structure there," according to Andrew.
At some point in time, Andrew removed himself from the Ross pack for years, having moved to Las Vegas, wasting money, and trying to avoid the local werewolf mafia.
- Andrew was originally intended to be more of an asshole, but that didn't really work out.
- As Sara's family was more powerful than Andrew's, their kids inherited the Ross name instead of Sullivan.
