Wolf-Demons possess long wolflike ears and a tail. They have short patches of fur on their arms, legs and along their neck. Wolf-demons can live for thousands of years, maturing at about the same rate as humans and appearing as pale-skinned human teenagers or adults for much of their lives. Many look like a human of 20 until they die at nearly two thousand years of age. Their hair can be anything from shades of black, white, and gray, to blondish gold, brown, and red. Their eyes can be brown, black, silver, blue, green, yellow and sometimes even red. Some are talkative, but most are quiet and keep to themselves. They are taller than humans on average, standing at anywhere five and a half feet tall to over six feet tall. The tallest ever recorded was seven feet tall. They're usually slender but muscular with weights ranging from 90 pounds to over 200 pounds, making them either extremely muscular or fat.
Despite their name, wolf-demons are not actually demons. They were born from the demi-goddess Sandra, who wanted to experiment with her magic on animals and humans. After many failed attempts, she had created the minotaur, the Medusa, and the harpy. Unsatisfied with her creations, she decided to try one more hybrid. Through this process, the oka-amii were born. They appeared to be human, but with canine teeth, wolvish ears, with thick fur on their arms and back. She wasn’t completely happy with her creation, but she thought she'd give it a chance. They proved cunning and quick to learn new things. Slowly they gained her favor, proving to the goddess that they wouldn’t become savages, vile seducers, or statue makers. Instead, they were like civilized humans, excellent hunters and brave warriors living much like nomads of mountains, grasslands, and forest. Often curious, oka-amii found new and inventive ways to make stylish, but effective weapons. Their art was often simple, but elegant at the same time. Despite this, over time the oka-amii and their goddess Sandra forgot each other, leaving oka-amii vulnerable to the six-eyed Demon Cra’sib Da. Cra’sib Da scooped up the oka-amii, turning them into dark people. She twisted their once calm and peaceful world into one of the vicious savages and violent dogs of war. They ceased to be oka-amii and became wolf-demons. Now, humans are quick to fight against their former allies, showing no hesitation. Though there are some wolf-demons that are ‘tame’ and refer to themselves as oka-amii, humans are often quick to hurl racist insults their way as though they still follow Cra’ sib Da’s path of devastation and tyranny.
Peaceful wolf-demons tend to live secluded lives in monasteries, windy meadows, forests, and mountains. This being said, there are also barbaric clans living in the mountains and thick forests. Although different from ancestors, their art remains simplistic and breathtaking.
Wolf-demon names are often lost in translation, or meaningless in human tongues. However, it's heard that outcasts borrow names other cultures, ashamed of their own.
