Even though I love wolves and my pit bulls are best friends with wolf-dogs, I like the fact that wolves are often featured as villains in fantasy and folklore. In fantasy, villainous wolves included Wargs in The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings as well as the Gmork in The Neverending Story. In Viking folklore, there was the demon wolf known as Fenrir, who was a son of Loki that bit off the hand of the god Tyr and slew Odin, the almighty All-Father himself, during Ragnarök. For my spin-off fantasy trilogy, I am thinking of including a whole pack of demon wolves that will act of dark assassins for the dark lord of the story.
