Shapechanger. The dire werefox can use its action to polymorph into a fox-humanoid hybrid or into a large sized fox, or back into its true form, which is humanoid. Its statistics, other than its size, are the same in each form. Any equipment it is wearing or carrying isn't transformed. It reverts to its true form if it dies.

Keen Hearing and Smell. The dire werefox has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on hearing or smell.

Pack Tactics. The dire werefox has advantage on an attack roll against a creature if at least one of it's allies is within 5 feet of the creature and the ally isn't incapacitated.

Fox Cunning. The dire werefox has advantage on all Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma saving throws against magic.

Dire Werefoxes are curious and agile tricksters that love to groom themselves. As humanoids, they are somewhat taller, though they are also seem to be somewhat muscular. Dire Werefoxes prefer to fight in their hybrid form, usually using their animal form when a quick escape is needed. They don't usually pass on their curse, but when they do, they usually induct the new werefox into a village or other small settlement usually composed of twenty or more individuals in a secluded natural environment, typically close to a forest or mountain. They also tend to keep foxes and giant foxes as pets and hunting companions.
