Jonathan Wolfe was a character in Robotech: The New Generation, and was voiced by Thomas Wyner. Considered an inspirational figure to many in the service, Jonathan, and his unit, the infamous Wolf Pack, returned to Earth from the deep space expeditionary forces to fight the Robotech Masters towards the end of the Second Robotech War. It was here that he had a relationship with Lynn Minmei. Years of fighting following the Invid invasion took a heavy toll at the once idealistic hero. He had a wife, Catherine, and a young son, Johnny. He was originally in Genesis Climber MOSPEADA, the series which was adapted into the third "saga" of Robotech.

Colonel Wolfe was a classic hero of old. He was somewhat of an idealist, following orders with efficiency and without question. He rose quickly through the ranks during the First Robotech War, and fought fiercely during the Malcontent Uprisings and various other skirmishes on Earth. His squadron, the Wolf Pack, was the most decorated and elite units of the corps. He later joined the Expeditionary Mission, where tales of his exploits were talked about about by soldiers to this day.
Jonathan Wolfe was one of the first to be assigned to the Expeditionary Mission, and saw several years of service in the front lines, fighting hostile forces in deep space. He developed a reputation, not only as an alleged ladies man, but with his excellent military service. He formed the infamous Wolf Pack, an elite unit known for getting the job done, regardless of the odds. Despite his successes, he struggled to maintain his relationship with his long-time spouse Catherine, and his estranged son, Johnny.
Return to EarthEdit
During the Second Robotech War, Wolfe, along with the Wolf Pack, volunteered to return to Earth to fight the Robotech Masters. At the same time, he also became subject to a number of propaganda / recruitment films for the military forces in deep space.
Wolfe's return to Earth could not have come at a better time. Many among the beleagured United Earth Forces (UEF), including the officers of the Army of the Southern Cross (ASC), were impressed by his ingenious guerilla tactics and strategies. In the aftermath of the Second Robotech War, Commodore Nolan Benson, the commanding officer of a deep space relief fleet, arrived on Earth and attempted to assume command of the surviving Robotech defense forces. Wolfe questioned Benson's motives, which became problematic as conflict with the Robotech Masters Remnant grew. Contact with Wolfe and his unit were lost shortly after the Invid Invasion.
Wolfe settled in Soldiertown, a safe haven for troops and militia forces.
- Jonathan Wolfe was originally known as Jonathan Wolff in several Classic Robotech works.
- Several Classic Robotech works delved into Wolfe's backstory, most notagbly his involvement in the Malcontent Uprisings, as seen in the comic Robotech II: The Sentinels: The Malcontent Uprisings. In that series, he was depicted as a ground-based tanker instead of a fighter pilot, as seen in Robotech: The New Generation.
- Another classic work, the failed series Robotech II: The Sentinels, and its comic spinoff, heavily featured Wolfe while he was away during the Pioneer Mission in deep space. In this comic adaptation, Wolfe had a relationship with Lynn Minmei, and had a bitter rivalry with T.R. Edwards.
