This page is written in the in-universe perspective of the "Garion" series' of novels.

The Chandim, the Hounds of Torak,  were a select group of Grolims who were transformed by Torak into monstrous hounds in order to guard Cthol Mishrak

After Torak's defeat at the Battle of Vo Mimbre, Urvon went amongst them and convinced them that he spoke for Torak. He managed to convert a few back to Human form. These retain their intelligence and gift for sorcery, but the centuries spent as dogs have stripped all remnants of humanity from them (except perhaps sarcasm and sadism). They are also more dangerous in packs and like dogs are fanatically loyal to their master Urvon. Harakan was a Chandim.
