Tsume is a rough selfreliant wolf. In the past he was part of a pack. However one day his pack was attacked by Jagara039s troops and many of his friends were killed. During the fight Tsume attempted to flee leaving all of his dead and dying brethren behind. Because of this the rest of his group disowned him and the leader attacked him leaving him with a large Xshaped scar across his chest. He was filled with shame and for many years after didn039t associate with any other packs. However he eventually meets Toboe who at first seems to annoy him. But deep down Tsume feels sympathy and compassion for Toboe who is the one who eventually convinces him to come with the rest of the quotpackquot to Paradise. He initially doesn039t believe the stories of Paradise and only follows the others out of an instinct to protect them and stay part of a pack. He often fights with Kiba. However he does eventually become a believer and enjoy the company of his pack mates. After Kiba he seems to be the best fighter among all the wolves and also seems to be more logical and observant than all the other wolves thus it can be argued that he is the most intelligent. Tsume seems to be an Eurasian wolf or tundra wolf in the anime series. Source: Wikipedia Tsume039s name means quotclawquot in Japanese.
