Worriz's 2013 Description
Wolves are pack animals who live in such close quarters that they share a kind of hive mind. Group decisions are usually arrived at easily and unanimously, so there is no real need for leaders. However, the wolves' transitory nature and traveling battle caravans often bring them into contact (and conflict) with other creatures, so someone in the tribe has to handle negotiations with "the others" (as all non-wolves are known). Worriz was given this role because he was considered "the most personable." In reality, he is a vicious, ruthless backstabber. His only saving grace is that he is able to disguise his true nature long enough to fool the other creatures. He can even occasionally fake a bit of "charm" when needed. He is the closest thing the merciless wolves have to a "statesman," but that's not saying much.
Worriz's 2015 Description
Although wolf packs don’t normally have leaders, Worriz has held a position of power in his tribe for a long time because it’s believed he is the best at negotiating with other tribes. He was never very happy about having to answer to Cragger during the fight over CHI, and he still isn’t comfortable with Laval and his other new “allies” on the quest for the Fire Wings. But he understands that the Icehunters are even more vicious and nasty than he is, so they have to be stopped. For now, Worriz and the Wolves will play nice with others.
Worriz appears alongside the other heroes from the eight main tribes in the first episode of the series, "The Legend of Chima." Here, he is seen playing hide-and-seek with the other young heroes. He is forced out of hiding by Skinnet's stench, expressing his dismay due to being very sensitive to smell. He later states that he would prefer a fun game of "hide-and-attack" and discusses plugging Chi with Cragger.
- Worriz seems at least slightly empathetic towards Windra or towards his pack in general (for example, when he expresses concern at how long Windra was gone in Episode 20).
- He has a huge crush on Windra, but Windra does not return the feeling.
- Worriz has a hatred of plants, which saved him from the influence of a Persuader plant in Episode 10 and was brought up again in episode 36 while in combat with Gorzan.
- In Laval's Journey, he uses a pair of claw gloves that are original to the game.
- In Laval's Journey, he is the final boss of the game, though in a more crazed state due to the Hundred Year Moon.
- Worriz is rumored to be Wakz’ son.
