During the time now known as the sundering, when the humans had declared war on the lupines, a sect of lupines left. They named themselves the Lupis, and retreated to a secluded mountain range. After the war was over, they came out, but their time in the range had changed them. They were taller, stronger, but less intelligent. They were faster, and more aligned with the moonlight.
Like their Lupines cousins, Lupis are biped humanoids covered in fur, who also have wolf heads, pawed hands and feet. The most noticeable difference, however, is the difference in height and weigh, as they stand between 5 and 8 feet in height, and weigh between 130 and 350 pounds. Fur colors are limited to white and shades of gray, and eye color consists of yellow and black. Just like their Lupine cousins, they do not understand laws of civilization, seeing the law of nature to be the law of the land.
Lupis worship Skadi (asgardian pantheon is worshiped in that part of the world) as their primary goddess, much like the majority of the Lupine.
