Awakened Winter Wolf Skygni Male

Awakened animals or magical beasts have slightly higher intelligence and verbal communication skills.

Skygni in particular, is a formidable opponent towards most humanoids having silently studied them and their ways while under his former master’s lash. He has never trusted those that walk with two legs and doesn’t expect to.

Winter wolves are larger, smarter, more ferocious variants of worgs with white fur and a deadly breath weapon.

A typical winter wolf is 8 feet long, stands 4-1/2 feet tall at the shoulder, and weighs about 450 pounds. Winter wolves will often ally themselves with frost giants, hill giants, and other large humanoids, serving entire tribes of giants as both scouts and guards.


Kimandatsu was trying to train him for fighting as Oni Tigers are often done. However, Winter Wolves are far more intelligent and Skygni didn’t take it kindly to being forcefully trained to perform as his master wished. Matter of fact on more than one occasion, Skygni bit and tore into Kimandatsu refusing communication or cooperation with her. Twice giving her frostbite!

If befriended properly, he becomes extremely loyal – but it will be an uphill battle to not only befriend him – but make him friendly to others. Zac has his work cut out him.
