Canifis (known as "Kharyrll" in the language used in Ancient Magicks) is a village that lies to the east of Varrock. It is the village of the werewolves, and is accessible only to members who have completed the Priest in Peril quest.

The name of the town most likely comes from the Latin word "Canis", which means "dog"[1]. There is certainly a dog theme here, with the names of some of the shopkeepers including Sbott (difficult to say without saying "Spot"), Barker, Roavar, and Rufus.

Canifis appears to be based on a small Slavic village, with villagers having names like Boris, Yuri, and Svetlana.
