Real Name: Fahr
Search for 'Skywise' on Amazon

Skywise is the WolfRiders' resident astronomer and Cutter's best friend. His name comes from his passion for the stars: at an early age, Skywise felt their song, perhaps because his mother, Eyes High, passed on her love of the stars to him. The rest of the Wolfriders ignore the night sky, but Skywise spends many a night dreamily gazing up at the heavens, finding in the gleaming points of light shapes and constellations hard to describe to the others. Skywise has lamented, "Why am I the only one who looks at the stars? It's like they call to me, and send me the pictures I see." Skywise still loves the Holt, the woods, and the wolves, but the stars forever hold a special place in his heart. As they did for Timmorn, the sky and the world sing to him in a special way. Skywise was the only one of his tribe who did not flinch from the piercing brilliance of the stars during the nights they crossed the Burning Waste, in truth feeling more wonder than fear.

Soulname: Fahr. Son of Eyes High and Shale; lovemate of Foxfur and Aroree; father of Yun (and many more, probably).

Orphaned at birth, Skywise is the resident astronomer of the Wolfriders. His name comes from his passion for the stars. While Skywise had always been Cutter's counselor, confidant, and close friend, the relationship between them changed dramatically when the Palace returned from its ten thousand year trip forward in time. The now vast difference in their ages and the loss of Skywise's wolfblood has created a gulf between the "brothers in all but blood". For a brief time, Skywise was advisor to Ember and after a somewhat rocky start, they both got the hang of things. Nothing, however, can diminish Skywise's jovial and rakish manner, or his way with the ladies.

Skywise has fathered at least one child, Yun, outside of Recognition with an unidentified Go-Back mother. Since Timmain's return to the Wolfriders, Skywise has been a drawn to her and she to him. They have become virtually inseparable, giving rise to speculation that Skywise and Timmain are destined to Recognize one another. He increasingly feels like an outsider to his own people but after the Palace Shards were reunited and the Palace left the bonds of the World of Two Moons, Skywise knew that he was truly where he belonged.
