In the mythology of Greenlandic Inuits, the word Amarok is used to refer to a giant, man-eating wolf creature - although other Inuit cultures may use the word to refer to any kind of wolf. Unlike regular wolves, the Amarok hunts alone and doesn't form packs. In at least some stories, it is intelligent and capable of speaking.
