DB Wolf

A wolf

Wolves (Canis lupus) are canine predatory animals found in Europe, Asia, North America, and formerly North Africa.

History

During the Peloponnesian War, wolves inhabited Greece.

Legend has it that a she-wolf protected the infants Romulus and Remus, the founders of Rome. During the Renaissance, the Followers of Romulus wore wolf skins to emulate their god, and they also placed wolf skulls on the entrances to their Lairs.[1]

The Templars also saw the potency of wolf symbolism to the Assassins' preoccupation with eagles: one such example consisted of Baltasar de Silva and Fiora Cavazza dubbing their Assassin-styled protégé "Il Lupo" ("The Wolf").[2] Akin to this, the Templar Shay Cormac's ship, the Morrigan, featured wolf designs on her sails.[3]

Haytham Kenway fending off a wolf

During the 18th century, the Assassin Ratonhnhaké:ton became adept at hunting wolves, trading their pelts, meat and teeth for money. When he and Robert Faulkner arrived at Oak Island to search for William Kidd's treasure in 1777, they were attacked by a pack of wolves who were situated near the sinkhole it was buried under.[4]

In an alternate reality, Ratonhnhaké:ton drank the Tea of the Red Willow and became one with the Spirit of the Wolf. In return, he gained the ability to turn invisible, and the power to summon wolves to attack his enemies.[5]
