I'd have to say wolf too. Nothing to do with heritage, but I've just always found them so fascinating. My first ever school book report was on White Fang. There's something spiritual about them, I feel. Similar to how I feel about horses. Beyond that, they are just awesome. The pack survives and the lone wolf perishes. I think that reflects a lot with human society and outcasts. They speak to us just by their existence.
I'm blabbing now, and I don't know if any of that really made sense. Just my feelings.
