From D&D Wiki
 Arashi no ōkami
|“||We are watching. We do not feel sympathy. If we can get away with it, we do it.||”|
|—Kaminari no Ashi, Arashi no ōkami|
Arashi no ōkami are always ready for action. They strike quickly and then pull back. Legend has it that Arashi no ōkami live in the sky. Their sudden strikes put their prey in shock and then, unlike lighting, they strike many times. Their favorite activity is to chase birds in the clouds. Once fried to a crisp, they will eat the birds. They usually are Neutral Chaotic.
 Physical Description
Being a wolf, they have a slender, powerfully built body with large, thick coat of golden fur that resembles lightning, deeply descending ribcages and sloping backs. They also have glowing white eyes and are about 5½ ft long and 2½ ft tall in size. Their tail is ⅔ the length of the head and body. They only weigh around 40 lbs.
Kuldifolk cannot get along well with intelligent birds.
Instinctively, Kuldifolk are almost always Neutral chaotic with Evil tendencies. They could care less for the rules and really just care about their own goals. Arashi no ōkami only really think of others as stepping stones.
Arashi no ōkami live in the clouds.
They really don't care much for religion, but admire gods with great control over thunder and lighting.
Canine (wolves, dogs, etc.), and their own language, which they only use members of their race, Thunder toungue. They also speak common.
Their names always consist of something about a storm and something about a wolf.
