The Dark Wolf
Local folklore in Dabril speaks of a evil forest spirit that resides within the southern reaches of the Hybrian Forest, who ravages weary travelers and hunts those linger too long within it’s borders.
It often appears at the edge of vision, or slightly obscured by cover or preternatural midsts, bearing the shape of a black gleaming, red eyed wolf.
Attempts to destroy or banish the beast have failed — the most tragic of which was the death of Tantif, a huntress who took it as her divine call by Erastil to cleanse the forest of it’s evil, who was found disemboweled and decapitated in the Font of the Alicorn.
