Gnolls are bipedal, hyena-like creatures that embody the worst traits of both humanoids and beasts. They enjoy killing, slaving, cannibalism, and kicking puppies, in no specific order. Gnolls tend to organize themselves into packs, with an Alpha dominating the other members of the group. That is until another gnoll kills the Alpha to take his place, ad infinitum.
Gnolls possess excellent senses, which they use to track their prey. These senses are often put to use by any icon who manages to recruit a gnoll pack. Said packs tend to be use as scouts and skirmishers (sometimes both at the same time). Gnolls are also fairly good at training canines to aid them in their hunts; they prefer wargs, but any pack-minded animal will do.
Icon Relationships: Several gnoll packs worship demon lords, and so tend to fall in with forces devoted to the Diabolist. Others have joined the armies of the Orc Lord, who lets them do what they do in his name. Finally, a few gnoll packs have sworn allegiance to the High Druid. They tend to follow the more extreme “burn civilization to the ground” doctrines she has.
