choose <nick>, and you will become a wolf if your idol dies. You are a villager as long as your idol is alive.
The wild child chooses an idol during the first night by using
choose <nick> in PM. Should they fail to choose by the end of night, one will be chosen randomly for them. The wild child starts off on the village team, however once their idol dies for any reason, they become a wolf. This happens regardless of what the idol's role is. The wild child is always seen as such by the seer and not wolf by the oracle and is revealed as wild child on death, even after they turn into wolf. The detective and augur can pierce through the wild child, identifying them as wolf or having a red aura after they turn.
