Physical Description[edit]

Ōkami are medium sized humanoids with wolf ears, tails, and sometimes teeth. They are typically lithe, muscular, and have a wide variety of hair and eye colors, though their skin is usually like that of humans.


The Ōkami are the descendants of wolves that became more humanlike, trading fur for short, scarce body hair, but maintained their large, wolf ears and wolf tail. Ōkami that live in the city are know as cityborn; those that live in the forest are known as forestborn. Cityborn and Forestborn look the same, but cityborn have less prominent wolfish features.


Ōkami society is very similar to that of humans in that they usually have monogamous relationships, and stay married to a single partner. They usually live near forests, hunting and traveling while wearing cloaks to stay hidden, easily disappearing into forests and fields of crops.

Ōkami Names[edit]

Ōkami usually use wolf names based on myth for their names.
