Lycaon is a minor character in Beastars and a student at Cherryton Academy.


He is a medium height painted dog, also known as an African wild dog, with a slender build. His fur is brown and sandy yellow, but due to wearing clothes his various white blotches cannot be seen.


Due to his lack of appearances, not much is known about him. He is shown to have a short temper, throwing insults when he felt he was wronged and proceeded to bite the fox he claimed laughed when he was stepping on his tail.


  • He is named after the scientific name for his species, Lycaon pictus.
  • He and the fox he was fighting with in the cafeteria in Episode 2 of the anime can be seen in Episode 1 standing near the students who were discussing Tem's murder from the newspaper.
