Amaroks are creatures resembling large, black wolves that live in the taigas and tundras of the far north. They are much more intelligent than true wolves, however, and unlike them they hunt alone. They also possess the ability to directly attack their victims' souls with their bites.1
Amaroks hunt solitary travelers at night, although they do not do so for food and do not attempt to kill their quarries. Instead, their objective is to impart a harsh lesson on the dangers of this behavior. Amaroks greatly approve of those who attempt to become better hunters after these events, and while their lessons are difficult and harsh they can prove to be excellent teachers in wilderness survival.1
