Bowman's Wolves are a race created by merging the base properties of a Human and a Wolf. Physically, they appear as wolves standing on their hind legs with humanoid hands. They also have a thicker (and sometimes alternately colored) patch of fur where a human's hair would be. Most Bowman's Wolves attempt to conform to society, rather than to give in to the lingering instincts of their ancestors. Bowman's Wolves were created by a Wizard who goes by the name Bowman.
Playing a Bowman's Wolf
All living Bowman's Wolves were created at the earliest possible stage of life by the wizard Bowman. He delegated the job of raising each to his aides, as well as volunteers. As such, none have ever met another Bowman's Wolf. Bowman's Wolves live in a constant struggle to keep their lupine instincts under control. While they are still, truly, wolves, Bowman's Wolves are fully sapient beings, and as such, must attempt to conform to society.
