The Aardwolf (Proteles novalis) is the Awakened form of Proteles cristatus, an African mammal that resembles a hyena. It has a short and bristly dusky tan coat with dark spots. It is a scavenger that typically hunts in packs. They have the ability to conceal and camouflage themselves, and are mildly allergic to pollutants.

The Aardwolf is not native to the Americas, and is thought to have descended from escaped zoo animals. The Aardwolf resides in the southwestern portion of North America and in Central America.
