One of the dead race

One of the Ancients

Simply referred to as One of the Dead Race, meaning the Ancients, this creature first appeared somewhat hostile in Hood Episode 3, leaving cryptic messages like "She lied and you know it." However, when the Wolf encounters him in the Spirit World, he reveals he had actually been trying to help guide the Wolf to the Spirit World to slay the Archdemon. He and his bretheren had the duty of transporting it inside the Metal Demon, until they were attacked by unknown assailants. Being the last to die, this Ancient is the only one who remembers his duty and what happened. The only way the Ancients are free to leave the Spirit World is if the Wolf slays the Archdemon. After he does so, he and the other Ancients are seen fading away.
