Ar-Ulric is the title for the leader of the Cult of Ulric, the second strongest religion in The Empire.[1a]

He normally resides in Middenheim, the spiritual centre of the cult, and is one of the Electors: due to the martial nature of his followers, he has huge political and military might and influence. This also means, if the State fails to act he can muster large armies to destroy the enemies of Ulric and the Empire.[1a] In addition other devout Electors often consult with Ar-Ulric as to how to vote.[2b]

The Grandmaster of each Chapterhouse of the Knights of the White Wolf are also appointed by Ar-Ulric


The Ar-Ulric is chosen by the senior priests of the Order of the Howling Wolf who travel from across the Empire and as far away as Kislev to vote. Once elected, the position is held for life, and it is his responsibility to appoint High Priests of other temples. He is also the court cleric to the Graf of Middenheim.[2b]


It was the High Priest of Ulric who orgiinally crowned Sigmar in Reikdorf first testing him with the Cauldron of Woe [9a], but for many centuries the Cult refused to acknowledge that he had become a god.[1a] When Nagash attacked the newly formed Empire and the dead besieged Middenheim he joined the battle using his god given powers to aid the defenders. [11a]

In 63 IC, Wulcan declares the Fauschlag sacred to Ulric and begins the construction of a great temple to the god.[1a][2a]

The Emperor consults with Ar-Ulric and Graf Wulfgaeng, and subsequently grants Middenheim a political charter.[2a]

In 1334 IC, the position of Ar-Ulric is made an Elector of the Emperor.[2a]

1360 IC sees Ottilia I declare herself Empress with the support of Ar-Ulric, who moves to her court at Talabheim.[1a][2a] She presents him with evidence that Sigmar was a mortal follower of Ulric and not a god, and together they ban the Cult of Sigmar in her lands.[8a]

It is not until 1547 IC that Ar-Ulric returns to Middenheim, with the then-ruling Graf enforcing a new rule of celibacy to prevent a High Priest from founding a dynasty himself.[2a]

Ar-Ulric Kriestov seeks to discredit Magnus the Pious but the future Emperor steps unharmed through the sacred flame, proving himself to all. Kriestov later joins his crusade against Chaos, leading an army of the faithful to war in Kislev, on his return from the successful campaign he scatters the Beastmen attacking Middenheim. [2a]

The current Ar-Ulric is Emil Valgeir.Needs Citation

You do not see the passage of time as I do. I roam the wild places of this world , following the breath of Ulric to the forgotten sites of primal power. I seek to follow the wolf god's path and instruct men in his ways of honour and courage.
