In the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game, the lupin is a humanoid with a dog-like appearance. Sages believe them to be a result of crossbreeding between humans and gnolls. They are intelligent and productive craftsmen and are friendly towards most races. In the Mystara campaign settings Lupins are most commonly found on the Savage Coast.

A lupin is usually of good alignment.
