Death dogs are two-headed, mastiff-like hounds, nocturnal killing machines that hunt their prey without hesitation across the desert sands and wastelands. Death dog packs have been known to share territory with little friction, although they do engage in dominance battles in leaner times when hunting is difficult.

Death dogs are strictly carnivores and often attack creatures much larger than themselves relying on their sheer numbers to bring down larger opponents.
