Glowing violet mote of essence

The shan ranger stands in a half-crouch, his long, knotty legs giving him that lanky, dangerous look of a wolf.  Walking upright, the body covered with mottled grey fur and his long arms conclude in large, clawed hands with semi-opposable thumbs.  The shan ranger's dog-like visage is fierce, with slavering jaws and eyes that glow like something out of a bad dream.

Hunting strategies

For sorcerers, Dark Catalyst (719) is particularly effective against all the magical shans.
