Wolf-kin tend to be tall, with many standing well over 6 feet. Most have a lean, muscular physique from their intense training regimens. Their fur is generally grey, white, or reddish-brown.

Wolf-kin speak a complicated language consisting of deep howling known as Howlspeech.

Different words can be reflected by sound, pitch, and length of individual howls.

Though non-Wolf-kin can learn to understand Howl-speech, it’s almost impossible for outsiders to learn to speak it fluently. Howl-speech has no written form, and each pack has distinct variations that can easily be identified by other Wolf-kin.

While Wolf-kin will eat nuts and berries in a pinch, the majority of their nutritional needs can only be satisfied through consuming meat. They particularly enjoy hunting for their food as a pack among the wild game of the Redwood Forest. When the pack has a particular strong day hunting, they will sacrifice some of their bounty to the Big Red God, before feasting on the remainder.
