Tales of Tolgard
Ankashar resemble a melding of several different animals. They resemble what might happen if a skinned bull, a man, a bear, and a reptile where all melted together and given life. One of Baphomet’s rare failures, these creatures proved to ill tempered to be used in battle. They were released to fend for themselves in the Abyss, and quickly turned feral, losing access to what little mental facilities they once had. While individuals and mated pairs can be found from time to time, they usually travel in a pack of three to eight beasts.
