Drift- Brother of Snowstorm and is a very large wolf. Irritable, unlike his brother, he is one of the Betas of the Oak Creek Pack. His pelt set him apart from the wolves of the Rose Valley pack, so when he was on his wandering, he could not join for fear of being chased out.

The aardwolf has a highly specialized diet consisting almost exclusively of harvester termites, and is able to tolerate the toxic secretions of the termite soldiers. In the summer, as many as 3,000 termites may be consumed each night, while in the winter, termites are much scarcer and only around a fifth of this number will be consumed, resulting in a dramatic loss of body mass. The aardwolf has a long, sticky tongue that is effective at licking termites from the soil surface.
