Dominion of the Dead
An intelligent race of wolves occupied the island at the dawn of pre-history. According to legend, the great hero Aldus employed these wolves in his quest to win back the Jeraldic throne. Many of these wolves served in the king’s armies; those that did were taken to Wuldai during its brief Empire, and most died in its service during the Wuldai Empire’s overthrow. Others served the princes of Burgund, and the last of their kind died off during the Darkness. If there are living descendants of the Great Wolves of Xos, they avoid human company and no doubt are keeping to themselves in the wilderness.
Today’s state of Xos is a breakaway province from the restored Jeraldic Empire. Its King is an ally of the Awrgawn Empire against both the Malarian Principalities and its old overlords to the south.
