Rougarous are a race of wolf-like humanoids capable of transforming into wolves.[1]


A rougarou is a muscular, wolf-headed humanoid covered in brown and gray fur. Rougarous tend to be slightly taller and heavier than typical humans.[1]


Rougarous are not numerous or widespread, and tend to live in secluded, strict communities in their wetland homelands. They are civilised, loyal and very protective of their families and friends. While they are easily mistaken as werewolves, rougarous are not lycanthropes and despise werewolves.[1]

Evil rougarous occasionally form into packs that prey upon the countryside. They are despised by the rest of their race at large, who eagerly hunt them down to punish them for their foul deeds.[1]


Usually able to speak in Common to those outside their community, rougarous use their own racial language, also called Rougarou, to communicate amongst themselves.[1]

On Golarion

Rougarou are common on the continent of Arcadia.[2]
