Wally is the owner and main employee of "Wally's Hardware Emporium and Explosives" throughout most of the series. In S2E16, he runs our of business because of the much cheaper ware prices at the newly opened Gigundo Mart.

Personality and Traits
This friendly man has some dark secrets that are infrequently touched on in the show. For example, he does have a private reserve of weapons (including nuclear ones),
He turns into a Wolf-Man at very full moon. We learn that he took on jogging at some time, at least in his Wolf-Man form. He is also seen participating in sports at the local gym.
Roles in Episodes
Wally(as The Wolf-Man) scratches the side of Dan's car while transformed on a full moon, setting off the events of the episode.
A month later, during the next full moon, Dan and Chris run across him transformed(and logging), along a freeway. Wally attempts to escape by jumping over cars, but he is caught at a red light and hit by Chris' car. Despite being dazed, he's able to slip away while Chris is distracted. Dan attempts to track him down, but eventually loses track of Wally by Laurel Canyon.
Yet ANOTHER month later, Dan and Chris manage to intercept him at a TACO Stand, giving chase and eventually hitting him with a silver arrow. Bleeding, Wally leaves a trail of blood to his apartment, giving Dan his apartment number and allowing him to key his car in revenge. Shortly after, Wally comes out to his car, and, seeing the damage, howls at the moon in an homage to Dan's cry.
