About

The night hound is an evil fey creature that looks like a stocky mastiff. This evil monster is usually in the service of more powerful fey. These hounds are extremely stealthy and often steal treasure or kidnap children for dark fey.

Reliable Retrievers. The night hound is known to be successful in hunting down items. There are many tales of an artifact going missing and a strange hound being reported in the area.

Kidnappers. Most disturbing, however, are the tales of these evil fey kidnapping children. Young fey are warned about these hounds at an early age.

Legendary Loners. Unlike most hounds and mastiffs, the night hound is a loner. They hate other hounds and mastiffs and will attack them on sight, including other night hounds.
