A large canine found in temperate regions. It is territorial and hunts in packs.

Wolves abound everywhere in most parts of the world. They don't pose much of a threat individually but they have numbers to help out. They will attack your dwarves and other creatures if they get too close or sometimes on their own. In fortress mode they usually retreat.

In adventure mode, this is probably the main enemy you will find ambushing you when traveling around the world map. You will often get caught in the middle of the pack, and even armed and armored with steel you might have a tough fight, however your superior materials should turn the fight in your favor. Their teeth can't penetrate steel very easily. Try retreating a few steps and taking on one wolf at a time.
