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

The shan warrior has a "bark" ability which adds to it's AS. Because this ability can stack one on top of the other, there is a very slim chance of a shan warrior barking three or more times in a row. Because of this unique ability the shan warrior has the potential to have the highest AS of any standard creature in the game.
