Jackals are a species of small, dog-like creatures native to the Kharidian Desert. Jackals are commonly found in the desert's lower reaches, near the cities of Nardah and Sophanem.
Jackals travel in large packs. These packs use their numbers to take down prey much larger than themselves, including humans that have often been weakened by the desert heat. They count as "dogs" for slayer tasks.
