The Wolfriders are the main company of ElfQuest, a shy and secretive tribe of forest dwellers who have allied themselves with the wolves of the World of Two Moons. Indeed, they are part wolf themselves. Their story begins with the High One, Timmain, the only one of the exiled Firstcomers to embrace the necessities of survival on their new, harsh world. Marshaling all her power, she shape-changed herself into a wolf and mated with one of the native creatures. Her son, Timmorn Yellow-Eyes, half-elf, half-wolf, became chieftain of the group of elves who would — over many centuries — evolve into the tribe now led by Cutter, Blood of Ten Chiefs.
The discovery of wildly diverse elfin cultures has propelled the Wolfriders from the “Way” — a simple life of hunting, howling and the “Now” of wolf-thought — into a greater awareness of the huge expanse of the world, that lead to adventures and dangers that continually threaten their transient peace.
