Wolves are creatures found in Appalachia in 2102.

BackgroundEdit

Main article: Wolf

Gray wolves originated in Eurasia during the Pleistocene, colonizing North America on at least three separate occasions during the Rancholabrean. Unlike dogs, which were domesticated from them, wolves are difficult if not impossible to tame and had a checkered reputation among humans, blamed for attacks on livestock and humans alike. Despite that, wolves were also widely respected and became a synonym for strength, loyalty, and teamwork. The nuclear holocaust had a limited impact on the common gray wolf, primarily in the form of freeing up land previously occupied for humans by their use. The lack of exposure to humans the post-apocalyptic world heralded has also enabled them to move past their instinctive fear of human beings.

The wolves steadily proliferated, carving out a niche in between other apex predators vying for the same resources and soon became a common sight in various wasteland areas, including New California (even with human civilization resurging).[1] Although the nuclear fallout had a marginal effect on most wolf populations, isolated groups like the ones inhabiting the wilds of Mount Desert Island, have steadily succumbed to the twisting influence of radiation and other environmental factors.[2]

CharacteristicsEdit

BiologyEdit

Unlike most other creatures in the wasteland, wolves do not have any visible mutations. They are one of the few creatures seemingly unaffected by the radiation, maintaining consistent coats of fur. Despite the lack of external mutations, wolves still harness pointed teeth and sharp claws that, when paired with fierce green eyes, preserve their ferocious nature.

Gameplay attributesEdit

Wolves usually travel in packs and charge hastily at enemies to attack. They can prove to be tough opponents when together, easily being able to overpower lone player characters in close quarters.

Glowing wolfEdit

FO76 Glowing Wolf

Glowing wolves represent an upper-tier subtype of their species and deal additional radiation damage on hit. Like all glowing creature variants, they boast significantly higher resistances and damage output than their weaker cousins. Their threat level should therefore not be underestimated.
