Maverick always acts grumpy and angered, even from the start. He does not trust the recently arrived humans, specially Reza, who was his primary target and acts aggresively towards the Protagonist during his/her stay.
He's very determined and does not rest until he achieves what he wants. While looking to find proof about Reza's actual intentions in order to apprehend him, he meets the protagonist a certain number of times and they engage in short cold conversations, except when Bryce makes a BBQ.
Maverick's former personality is unknown, Anna claims he was "eager to help" suggesting he had an extroverted side.
However, his personality is only a product of insecurity and the duty of trying to protect those who he loves, having failed to do so long ago, he felt the responsibility to do the things right, and so he acts distrutful towards the humans and their actions.
Long ago, a serial killer attacked the town and started eating people, hunting only in the night, they later discovered this was the cause of a degenerative disease which transformed him into a feral beast.
It was Maverick's brother, Miles, who attacked Bryce upon being engaged.
Maverick not being sure what to do, killed Miles in an attempt to save Bryce, he was deeply traumatized after that case and changed a lot.

[Just like you]
[Sure, why not] Vital choice for later
Yes or not, it doesn't matter.
[He doesn't seem so bad to me]
[I think I'm alright]
[Reza shot Maverick and ran off]
