Wolves were carnivorous dog-like animals that lived in wild places, such as the Spine and the plains and forests of Alagaësia. There was nothing in the Inheritance cycle that suggest wolves are different in any way from "Earth Wolves", Canis Lupus. Their reference in the series is insignificant, for instance the villagers were afraid of wolves in the Spine when pondering whether or not to depart from Carvahall to Surda and the Varden. The Shrrg were giant wolves that lived in the Beor Mountains.
