Gray Wolves

The Uthgardt tribes have occupied the Neverwinter Woods
for time immemorial, following seasonal migrations and
hunts and sharing (or squabbling over) territories
with one another. At first, the Gray Wolves had no
particular advantage over the other tribes, nor had
they been more territorial than any other tribe. Of
course, the barbarians weren’t shapeshifters then.
Change swept through the tribe hundreds of years
ago when human refugees from Gauntlgrym spread
the lycanthropy they had contracted from the mind
flayers’ thralls.

When the Shadovar arrived in the home
village of Vellosk and offered the Gray
Wolves an alliance forged in others’ blood, it awoke a
primal hunger in the barbarians. Already more prone
to violence than their predecessors, the Gray Wolf
leaders quickly accepted the Netherese offer. Some
leaders justified the pact as a reunion of sorts, since
the original Uthgardt tribes were, in part, composed
of Netherese refugees. Others were persuaded by the
Shadovar promise to cede the wilderness to the Gray
Wolf tribe once they had together conquered the
region’s cities.
