Originally migrating from the East, they now ranged from the western flanks of the Orocarni to the eastern bank of the Anduin. Their reddish ears complemented and softened their distinct black coloring and their eerie blue eyes, lending them an attractive and somewhat innocent guise that obscured their sly, pitiless ways.
Aflifnanias hunted mostly at night, moving and working in well-coordinated packs of four to twenty. The packs hunted cooperatively in a clever and sinister manner. First, they encircled a small group of prey (deer, kine, sheep, Men, etc.). Then some of them decoyed away the strongest defenders, while the others closed in on the choicest victims. In lean times, however, they were not too proud to scavenge for carrion and refuse; thus their name.
