Triple Threat: Cu Sidhe



Cu Sidhe
Cu Sidhe (aka “fairy hounds”) are more or less immortal and can be found anywhere that the sidhe are found. They look like normal Irish wolfhounds, but can vastly outperform any normal dog breed. They’re scrappers, coursers, trackers, watchdogs, etc. They are rather bigger overall than normal wolfhounds and truly large specimens can top 200 lbs.! Cu Sidhe range in color from dark russet to green or even white and green fur. Most of the time they don't leave footprints at all, but occasionally, the places where they have touched the earth burst into flame and leave charred paw prints.
