A type of wolf. Unlike many wolves that move in packs, these wolves are often found on the move alone. They are strong enough to take down prey much larger than themselves, and coupled with the independence they exhibit, many soon began to refer to them as “dark wolves.” These wolves used to thrive around Grandshelt, but now their numbers have dwindled to the extent that few of them are ever seen.Dark Wolf
