A Barghest, stalking his prey.

They are often found in groups and are dangerous if they manage to surround you with its fellow pack members.

There are 3 variations of the Barghest:

  • The Barghest is most likely a reference to the supernatural Barguest of Anglo-Irish origin. In tales of old, this creature would take the form of a monstrous mastiff, complete with horns, fangs, and fiery eyes. Though sometimes it did take the form of a headless woman or white rabbit that bursts into flames (yes, really). Its sudden appearance is an omen of impending disaster, and should anyone cross its path then they shall receive a terrible wound that would never heal.
