Howltaur

Sometimes called Hyaenataurs, these beasts are scavenger thieves. They do at times hunt for themselves; however, they tend to stalk other predators and let them take down large game like deer, then move in and scare off the predator with numbers. It's an odd approach that sages often argue isn't as effective as if they'd just hunt directly. Nonetheless, more than half of their meal-gathering is performed this way. Moreover, their scavenging isn't limited to food. Howltaurs have been known to act as highwaymen against small grounds to attack and rob them of their precious possessions. They might drag off slain bodies to eat as well -- or let them lie and rot, depending on their hunger level. Howltaurs have a simplistic use of language but communicate with a vocabulary of less than 200 words. Emotions run high in their packs.
