The Wolf symbolizes free will, the ability to escape and therefore is called a lone wolf. Wolves also are known for their adaptation and evolution powers.

In Native American folklore the wolf is a pathfinder. In other cases, wearing the pelt of a wolf granted some of their warriors immeasurable strength, and was said to be able to transform them into wolves themselves, becoming "Skinwalkers".

Similarly, Ancient Greece associated the wolf with that of King Lycas, who tried serving his own son at a banquet for the Gods, and was punished by being transformed into a wolf. His name was then forever associated with the term "Lycanthrope", or "Werewolf".

In Christianity they are said to represent greed and destructiveness, while in Chechen (and generally also Ingush) lore, wolves are almost always portrayed in a positive light, either as an equivalent for the nation, or as the loving "Wolf Mother"...
