They run the gamut of colors: brown, black, white, blond, spotted, multihued, etc. Arks carry Tech Level II weapons: swords, spears, bows, and such. They most commonly wear leather or studded leather armor most commonly, and have rarely been seen without a shield of some sort. Their pack insignia is usually emblazoned upon their shields.

Reactions: No known interactions

Behavior: They are ferocious warriors, but have a deathly fear of large winged animals. They hunt all species for food, and consider humanoid hands to be a particular delicacy.

Behavior: Behavior not recorded

Society: The hound folk travel in loosely knit family units called packs. These packs can be up to two dozen members strong, but the hunting parties rarely number more than a dozen. The pack is ruled by the alpha male, usually the ark with the most combat prowess. Other males will occasionally challenge the alpha male for the right to rule the pack. Sometimes a large pack will split, with part of it following a new alpha male and part of it staying with the old one. Arks fear all Tech Ill and IV artifacts, Ignore them if rolled as loot. However, Tech V and VI artifacts are worshipped as totems. The alpha male's first wife is charged with the care and transportation of the totems. They consider human hands to be a great delicacy.
