Physical Description[edit]

Skullhounds are anthropomorphic canines that have a skull as their face and have other bones exposed or visible(such as the rib cage, spine, and the bones in their hands and feet). Their fur tends to be short all over their body except around their neck, their fur varies in color depending on the region they come from. Skullhounds also have non-retractable claws and sharp teeth, as well as pointed ears on the top of their head and a tail. Due to their unsettling appearance, they are sometimes discriminated against or even hunted down as monsters.
