A fierce creature from the evil snowy wilds. It has white fur and a piercing howl.

Ice wolves are evil-aligned versions of the common wolf who can be found at evil tundras and glaciers. They are almost identical to their non-ice counterparts save for their coloration and for being 10,000 cm³ larger, coming close to the size of an adult dwarf. This makes them potentially dangerous to civilians, though an equipped military squad will make short work of them. Ice wolves possess a pet value of 50, but lack the necessary tokens to be trainable.

Some dwarves like ice wolves for their piercing howls.

Very cold-hearted. Its howl will chill you to the bone.
