Hyena is a type of monster in ADOM. They are quite unremarkable monsters, aside from the fact that for some reason they are chaotically aligned (whilst most naturally occuring animals are neutral). They have no special attacks.

Level: 1, DV: 12, PV: 3. Hits: 8, Attacks: 1, Damage: 2-8. Speed: 100.

Corpse effects[]

Hyena flesh apparently tastes foul, but does not cause any ill effects for any PCs.

Monster memory[]

The hyena lolls its tongue, panting briefly, then closes its powerful jaws with a sharp click. Powerful legs, looking too short for a creature this size, move the hyena rapidly over the ground. The markings on bristly fur are meant for hiding outside, but the hyena can sneak around perfectly well in any environment.
