— A selection of Wulfden's titles[1]

Wulfden the Fourth is a Wyrn, which is the religious and political leader of the Shu-Dereth religion on Sel.[2]

He has a strong jawed, confident face that appears fatherly to his followers. He ordered the conquest of Duladel and decreed that if Teod and Arelon did not convert to Shu-Dereth within three months, he would destroy them.

This decree was actually a ruse, allowing Hrathen to believe he wanted to convert Arelon. Hrathen's actions distracted their enemies attention so Dilaf and several other Dakhor monks could infiltrate Arelon unnoticed and set off the Invasion of Arelon.

Somehow he knew when and where Hrathen would be in Teoras during the invasion and had Fjon assassinate him.[citation needed]

It is said that he was chosen to be Wyrn at an extremely young age.[citation needed]
