The Larvir is a wolf-like species native to the planet Chil'a'Chin. Evolved to survive on the highly volcanic world this predator is a fearsomely large creature. Purely a carnivore the Larvir thrives on eating the various docile creatures of its homeworld such as the Yorlak, Eir and Polus Raks. The Larvir lives in small family groups which consist of at the most of four to five.
Only two males live in any family group at any one time, leaving the possibility for conflict at a minimum. To keep this balance males who reach maturity are exiled from the family group by the alpha male. Females stay in the family group much longer, normally till they have mated with another male and then they will go off on their own to have birth joining their mates family group.
