The name Wolves refers to more than one character, item or concept. For a list of other meanings, see Wolf (disambiguation).
Wolf Riders by Guy Gondron.

Wolves were of old allied with the Dark Lord; Morgoth bred the two greatest of their kind, Draugluin and Carcharoth, and Sauron was wont to take the form of a great Wolf. The lesser kinds were sometimes used as steeds by the Orcs.

Wolf is also used as a short form of Werewolf.


"Only a few hundred yards beyond the houses [in Bloemfontein] was the open veldt where wolves, wild dogs, and jackals roamed and menaced the flocks, and where after dark a post-rider might be attacked by a marauding lion."
J.R.R. Tolkien: A Biography
