Charmable animals are a type of creature that can become an animal companion by targeting them with Charm Animal. Nearly all charmable animals are hostile, but remain passive until they take damage or life steal, are targeted by a skill that can target a foe, or an attempt to charm them occurs. In contrast, beasts are animal-like creatures that cannot be charmed.
