Amarok (or Amaroq) is the name of a gigantic wolf in Inuit mythology.
It is said to hunt down and devour anyone foolish enough to hunt alone at night. Unlike real wolves who hunt in packs, Amarok hunts alone. It is sometimes considered equivalent to the waheela of cryptozoology.
I've received a number of comments concerning Amarok's wolf head design as not based on Inuit rather than from the Pacific Northeast culture. I am deeply aware of that. I wanted to design something unique by blending two different cultures. But since its such a concern, I decided to change it to something close to Inuit culture.
