Appearance when infected by spiders.

Sylvan Hounds, or sometimes called fern hounds, are plants that mimic dogs, born from the Pale Tree. Unlike the sylvari, Sylvan Hounds are born small and grow in a few months. They are naturally docile and great companions and are seen by sylvari in the same way dogs are seen by humans as cherished pets but when mistreated by Nightmare Court they are turned into aggressive Nightmare Hounds.
