A wolf

Wolves are hostile canines found in several areas. They can be found alone or in small packs of two or three, and will attack anyone who comes near. Occasionally they can be heard howling within a close range.

Some wolves may appear to be alone, but when threatened, they will howl and summon two or three more wolves to their aid. They come in several colors, which may vary depending on their environment.

Rare species of wolves in the Cyrodilic Highlands have been domesticated into capable mounts: this was accomplished by breeding them into larger sizes unseen in the wild variety.

Quest-Related Events[edit]

During Freedom's Chains, a friendly wolf appears in the cave at the entrance of Kerbol's Hollow alongside Marcellyne Cine. It is only present at the beginning of the quest. It disappears after you speak to Marcellyne, having entered the village. Its lack of hostility towards the villagers hints at the hollow's true nature.
