-Ability to stand upright on two feet.
-Opposable thumbs; Hands instead of paws on front limbs. Also grants ability to use knives, spears, and bows.
-Nightfall wolves are generally better at seeing at night than other wolves. This is because Nightfall hunted at night due to the lack of prey during the daytime on Esamir.
-Agility. This is a trait because Nightfall has always relied on guerrilla tactics and ambushes; Nightfall wolves prefer agility in battle over brute strength.
-Speed/Stamina. Earned from hunting on the wide open tundras of Esamir, Nightfall wolves can move and run fast, and for longer periods of time.
-Better resistance to elemental magic. Nightfall's presence on Esamir made them almost completely resistant to extreme temperatures.
