SCARIEST Hound For a D&D Huntsman Leaping From the Pages of Volo's Guide to Monsters The Yeth Hound

In the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game, the yeth hound is a sinister flying canine inhabiting evil aligned planes. Long and skinny, it is described as resembling as a dog crossed with a lynx, and is deep black in color with yellow eyes. Although lacking wings, the creature is inexplicably capable of flight. Within the game, packs of yeth hounds only hunt during the night and never venture out during the day. If abroad during the day, the sunlight causes them to quickly fade away to the ethereal plane where they cannot return. Yeth hounds understand the language "Infernal", but cannot speak.
