The Big Bad Wolf
In "Bisclavret" the baron as Bisclavret is depicted as gentle and noble, unlike Bigby, but like Bigby is allowed to live amongst humans still in wolf form. The people surrounded by Bisclavret feel secure and trust him, but they fear werewolves. Like Bisclavret, Bigby has qualities that make people feel protected (not just because he is the sheriff), and a handful of people who trust him, but also like werewolves, Bigby has plenty of people who fear him as well. And much like Bisclavret, although people trust and respect him, they still depict him as an animal, especially in wolf form.
