Wolf, from Ultima VII manual.
Variants: Timber wolves
First appearance: Ultima VI
Last appearance: Ultima IX

Wolves are big canines with an impressive set of sharp teeth. They usually avoid humans, but wary should be the adventurer that enters their territory, for the wolves won't forgive this transgression, and always attack in packs.

They can be found in the forests of Britannia and Serpent Isle. It appears that they once existed in Pagan, but they have now disappeared from there.

Timber wolves, a more rugged subspecies with lighter grey fur, appeared in northern regions of Serpent Isle in Ultima VII Part Two: Serpent Isle.

After their appearance in Ultima VI, Wolves were unchanged in behaviour and looks.


Both revered and feared, this canine lord stalks the high plains and forest alike on its quest for survival. Never, ever, put this wary beast in a threatening situation! Its bite is far worse than its mournful howl.

- from Compendium (Ultima VI)

This plains and forest hunter has long had the greatly undeserved reputation as a vicious predator. While wolfpacks do thin the weak and the sick from herds of wild animals, and while farmers must occasionally be wary of their curiosity, there is little to support the notion that these animals are bloodthirsty man-eaters.

- from The Book of Fellowship (Ultima VII)


Larger than either dog or fox, wolves are among the most efficient hunters of the wild, travelling in fearsome packs across the plains. Their prey of choice is other animals, from the rodent to the sheep, However, in desperation, a few have been known to set upon humans, though only when with the pack.

- from Beyond the Serpent Pillars (Ultima VII Part Two)

Aided by the cover of the land, wolf packs use their numbers wisely and do not lose their own in the pursuit of food. An acute sense of smell can lead a wolf for miles to a wounded animal. Wolves do not attack humans lest you travel alone. However, wolves are not unknown, and wherein wolves are present, a night watch should be kept. Larger variants do not fear man at all.
