In the Wheel of Time, wolves have a weak association with man. They live partly in Tel'aran'rhiod, which they call the wolf dream. They communicate with each other over long distances and can communicate with certain rare individuals called Wolfbrothers. Wolfbrothers, however, cannot directly communicate with each other.
