Customs among the Wulfher are heavily influenced by their connection to the land and their history. They hold many rituals and ceremonies throughout the year, many of which are centered around the full moon, when the beruehrt members of the clan transform into their beast form. These rituals are often led by the king or other senior members of the clan, and are seen as a way to honor their ancestors and the gods who have blessed them with the gift of being beruehrt. The Wulfher are also deeply spiritual, and they have a deep reverence for Lot: the goddess of Winter and Summer, Life and Death, who they believe blessed them with the ability to transform into beasts in order to defeat the evil sorcerer Alkake.
