The Wolfskin (Japanese: ガルー Garou) is a basic, Nohr-aligned class which was introduced in Fire Emblem Fates. It is a non-human shapeshifting class which uses beaststones to take the form of a bipedal wolf-like beast in battle.

Wolfskins promote to the Wolfssegner class, and their Hoshidan counterpart is the Kitsune. Enemy Wolfskins, along with their promoted form and their Hoshidan counterparts, are among the few playable classes whose generic enemy members are not capturable.

Etymology and other languages

Names, etymology and in other regions
Language Name Definition, etymology and notes
English Wolfskin A portmanteau of either "wolf" and "kin", meaning "related to wolves"; or of "wolf" and "skin", suggesting that the creature wears the skin of a wolf without actually being a proper wolf.
Japanese ガルー Officially romanized as Garou. Garou is a French suffix which in modern usage is equivalent to the English "were" prefix, meaning "human" and, when used in conjunction with an animal term, indicating a human who changes shape into that animal. For example, loup-garou is the French word for werewolf.
Spanish Ulfhedin Derived from the Old Norse ulf, "wolf", and heðinn, "cloak". "Úlfheðinn" is also a synonym for the Norse berserkers.
French Ulfhedin As in Spanish.
German Ulfhedin As in Spanish.
Italian Ulfhedin As in Spanish.
