Chichounds are vile monsters created by the zixanar Vyril. He spawned them from canine scavengers, and this base still shows in their twisted form. They retain their canine ears, basic body shape and carnivorous hunger of their former selves, but have been molded into loyal hounds of the Eruman. They obey any Eruman's commands, but will obey priests and beastmasters above others.
They are vaguely canine, with fangs in their lower jaw, a long neck and thin legs. They have dirty brown fur, with a swishing tail like a dog's. Their claws can tear through scale, and their bite is strong enough to sever limbs. Vyril designed them as killing machines, and he succeeded.
