Fenris are huge, intelligent, vicious wolves of the Northlands. They are the dominant form of cold weather predator and are greatly feared.
Their primary attack is a vicious bite with massive, razor-sharp teeth. In addition to delivering 2-12hp of damage, any natural 20 means a victim’s limb has been amputated (DM’s, roll randomly or determine based on your whim or mood). Fenris also have a horrifying howl that they can unleash once daily, which causes fear to all opponents within earshot. Anyone failing their saving throw will run in fear for 2-7 rounds.
Fenris often have exquisite treasure in their lairs, as they are intelligent enough to recognize good treasure and avaricious enough to target victims and kill for it. Conversely, their lush pelts can fetch up to 2,500 gold pieces, meaning they are sometimes hunted for their pelts by brave (foolhardy?) trappers.
