A hyena was a type of pack animal known for its shrewdness and hunting skills and for its disturbing laugh-like call.[2]

DescriptionEdit

Hyenas came in different varieties but commonly had stripes on their fur, weighing about 120 pounds (55 kilograms) and measuring a about a yard (meter) in length. Their fur coloration gave them an advantage when hiding within areas of tall grass.[2]

CombatEdit

Hyenas fought in packs and were intelligent enough to send some of the members to circle and flank their prey. They were capable of tripping with their sharp jaws.[2]

ReputationEdit

Gnolls, unsurprisingly, had a strong affinity for hyenas, keeping many as pets or guards.[3] The Mulhorandi god Set also favored hyenas, using them as omens for his followers.[4]
