|Behind the Scenes|
Armadillo Wolves are relatively violent beasts that roam the forested regions of the Earth Kingdom along with the icy tundras of the polar Water Tribes.
The Armadillo Wolf is a relatively large animal, similar both in build and size to the real life gray wolf. Armadillo Wolves are slender animals with large descending ribcages and sloping backs. These quadrupeds possess four elongated legs that are considerably robust, with comparatively small paws in comparison. Armadillo Wolves have a definite color pattern, with their body components being different shades of gray and blue. Their coats are comprised of short, coarse and sparse fur light gray in color, with the exception of the underbelly and paws which are white in coloration.
The species' hybridization is evident upon the examination of the Armadillo Wolf's back, which is protected by a thick plated armor dark gray in pigmentation. The plates are formed by dermal bone covered in relatively small, overlapping scales referred to as scutes. In addition to the concealment of its back, rigid shields are present over the shoulders and along the entire length of an Armadillo Wolf's tail. Lastly, additional armor covers a portion of the creature's head, giving the impression that it is masked. In accordance to its namesake, the armadillo, Armadillo Wolves lack protective casing on their underbellies, which instead are covered in soft, white fur. Dark blue stripes appear on certain parts of the creature's body, most specifically underneath the protective casing.
They are social predators that unwaveringly attack figures they deem as threats to their well-being. Their protective coating and speed, most of all, make them formidable opponents, and provide hindrance for those attempting to defeat them in a conflict. They are highly territorial, and will approach anyone in close proximity to the land they gather food from.
Armadillo Wolves are social creatures, and tend to travel in packs of three or more. As a group, they can successfully ambush prey and fellow predators, by working cohesively in depleting their opponents' energy.
In battle, they lean towards attacking from different angles, pausing at respectable distances before pouncing aggressively. They tend to do so in succession, as to prevent resistance and remove any chance for the opposing force to strike back. When defeated, they mimic a similar reaction of the armadillo, that is to roll over with their paws erected upward.
