Susan Rodriguez
Your face looks like a sack of purple potatoes.
Harry Dresden
You say the sweetest things.
— Rodriguez on Dresden’s treatment while held captive by the Streetwolves[1]

According to FBI Agent Roger Harris, they have a rough and "spooky" reputation around town even with criminals.[2]

Streetwolf territory is down by Forty-ninth Street Beach, by the University.[2] Their hideout is the the Full Moon Garage.[3]

When they get worked up, the air around them gets tight and heavy with a feral raging current. It's like they're a group of creatures with one controlling mind, their faces grimaced with a berserker rage. During a soulgaze with Parker, Harry Dresden felt the raw energy of wild coursing through him: the naked lust for meat, the need to run and kill, the feeling of being invincibie, unstoppable, and the power running trough his arms and legs.[3]

Known members are Parker, Flatnose and Lana.[3][4]

In the series[]

Fool Moon[]

In Fool Moon, Harry Dresden is put onto their trail by FBI Agent Roger Harris,[2] He visits the Full Moon Garage waking the Streetwolves. Stirred up by Lana chanting: "Kill him, kill him!" they attempt to attack Dresden but were to be stopped by Parker because he doesn't want to attract police attention and because he has to take down Dresden himself in order to secure his position as leader, Parker, who is getting older and slower, is having trouble keeping the young upstarts in line. Dresden manages to escape the garage.[3]

Later, Dresden is abducted by the Streetwolves[5] and tied up in the Full Moon Garage. Apparently, they're keeping Dresden alive for some deal with John Marcone. Flatnose challenged Parker and was swiftly defeated. Dresden tries to buy time and mouths off to Parker, which backfires.[4] Marcone arrives just before Parker is about to kill Dresden. Marcone offers Dresden a way out by signing on as one of his employees, violating the deal he had with Parker. Dresden agrees to sign on with Marcone as a ruse. Parker and Flatnose attacked Marcone and Hendricks while Dresden attempted to escape.[6] Then the FBI hexenwolves showed up and started shooting at the streetwolves and Dresden. Lana and Flatnose are killed in the ensuing battle, and Parker was torn apart and eaten by three of the hexenwolves.[7]
