|“||Wolves are always hungry for an end to rabbitkind.||”|
Wolves, sometimes referred to derisively as snappers, are a group of predatory animals that prey upon rabbits. They are vicious, disorderly, and often without self-control, filled with ravenous hunger for the death and suffering of their enemies.
It is possible that wolves were responsible for driving the rabbits from Golden Coast. What is certain is that wolves became a major menace in Natalia, rivaling - and often aligned with - the Lords of Prey. A major wolf offensive just before the events of The Green Ember resulted in the Red Valley War, in which the wolf King Garlacks was defeated and slain by his rabbit counterpart King Jupiter.
Redeye Garlackson and a party of his wolves, attack Heather and Picket's home in Nick Hollow, setting it aflame and taking their mother, father, and little brother Jacket prisoner, as slaves for their ally Morbin Blackhawk.
Later, when Heather and Picket, along with their uncle Wilfred and Smalls, make their way towards the refuge of Cloud Mountain, they sail down the Whitmer River and come upon Decker's Landing, which they find surrounded by wolves burning it to the ground.
Savage, ruthless, and irrational creatures, wolves are the main enemy of rabbits. They tend to travel in packs, the sizes of which may vary from a few wolves to a hundred. Although they are fierce fighters, wolves are also known to be rather stupid and disorderly, which often proves to be to their disadvantage. The few exceptions to this generality are usually given a higher status, an example of which is Redeye Garlackson.
Like rabbits, there are different modes of speech among wolves, though it is unknown what the causes of these might be. Where wolves like Redeye, Flox, and Blenk speak clearly and in similar fashion to most rabbits, other wolves have rougher, more simplistic speech methods.
