This is Wilder’s father Dasan, the chief of their large tribe. He is quite old, and very wise; a gentle man with a warm spirit and kind heart. He has taken in a number of people to their tribe, allowing them to become members of their vast community. It was his great-grandfather to which the “prophecy” was delivered, and the reason that his family line ended up ruling the tribe. Now, he’s entrusted his son with a task, even if he hasn’t told him the complete truth about the matter.
