Bear Wolf (born Edward, surname unrevealed) is the biological father of Paddy Kirk and a former famous wrestler. 



Wrestler Bear Wolf embarked on a years-long affair in the 1960s with married Barbara Kirk, who he genuinely loved, but she never felt the same. The affair resulted in Barbara giving birth to his son, Paddy, on 1st July 1969, although Paddy grew up believing Barbara's husband was his father.

Paddy described Bear as "a true gent" that always had time for his fans.

2019-: Meeting Paddy and moving to Emmerdale

In January 2019, Paddy came into possession of a love letter Bear Wolf wrote to Barbara in September 1968. Born about nine-months after the letter was written, Paddy realised the implications the letter could have although he chose to ignore it as he couldn't face the thought that the man who raised him wasn't his dad.

The following month, Paddy's best friend, Marlon Dingle, decided to attend a wrestling convention featuring Bear Wolf at the Spinewick Way Social Club in Hotten, hoping to find answers for Paddy. When Paddy realised what Marlon was doing, he was furious but agreed to go along to the convention, where he met Bear for the first time but didn't dare to ask him about his mother. 

After Paddy found out Bear was his father through a DNA test, he travelled to Belfast where met his father again and revealed that he was his son. Bear was shocked but the two took a walk along the beach, bonding before saying their goodbyes. He would later appear in the village in April 2019, later moving in with Paddy and his partner Chas Dingle in The Woolpack. They later grew quite close.
