Different canines

It says that canines have the ability to shift into Luperci. Does this include African wild dogs?

Hey Kate. African wild dogs are not allowed - you can find a full break down of allowed species here on the RP Guide, but as a quick copy and paste from it, the allowed general species are:

Wolves
Coyotes
Dogs
Jackals

Other species which are distinct from the above four categories are listed include:

C. l. dingo: Dingo
C. l. halstromi: New Guinea Singing Dog
C. s. simensis: Ethiopian Wolf
C. indica: Indian Wolf
C. himalayensis: Himalayan Wolf
C. r. rufus: Red Wolf


Hope this helps!

Unfortunately, African Wild Dogs are "Lycaon pictus" and cannot become Luperci. Only those of the Canis genus, wolves, jackals, coyotes, and dogs can become Luperci. So no foxes, dholes, and African Wild Dogs.

You could still play an African Wild Dog in 'Souls, but they will not be able to acquire the Luperci virus and must realistically be in 'Souls. Think of it as an immune jackal in Nova Scotia: they have to protect themselves from the cold and have a reason to be there.
