A bizarre creature that seems to be on the borderline between living and dead, these creatures strike terror at night. Though they clearly have an intact body compared to other undead such as skeletons, it is speculated that these dog-like animals are conjured up from black magic. In appearance they all share a black dirty hide on an emaciated frame.
