Barren Wolves
« on: January 21, 2020, 04:03:27 PM »


A denizen of the Barren Tips, the Barren Wolf is perhaps the largest species of wolf on Exonia, and definitely the most vicious. Its dark, almost black fur and yellow, semi-luminous eyes makes it a creature that looks like it stepped out of a nightmare.

An adult male wolf can reach the height of three and a half feet (107 cm), with a length of four and three quarters feet (145 cm), and weighing as much as four hundred and fifty pounds (204 kg). Couple its intimidating size with a malevolent intelligence, and it is understandable why the Barren Wolf is one of the most feared predators in Exonia. Theoretically, a Barren Wolf can live up to fourteen years. The reality of the Barren Tips, however, rarely affords a Barren Wolf that long a life span.

The environment of the Barren tips has effectively bred the Barren Wolf to be highly resistant to various magic, including any type of charm.

Barren wolves usually live in packs. Although Barren Wolves have allowed themselves to be ridden by goblins, this has often been misunderstood as the Barren Wolves having been domesticated by the goblins. Nothing could be further from the truth. A better representation of the relationship with goblins is a symbiotic one, with the wolf being the dominant partner. A goblin that forgets this is at risk of losing his life to his "steed." In addition, goblins are expected to feed their steeds, when the latter are unable to hunt due to circumstances. There have been instances when goblins have sacrificed their own young to do so. This in turn has led to most Barren wolves having developed a taste for the young of bipedal species.

The Barren Wolf is the only known wolf species native to the province of Essia.
