Damin Wolfblade is the son of Marla Wolfblade and her deceased husband, Warlord Laran Krakenshield, and High Prince of Hythria. He plays a large part in the Hythrun Chronicles in both the Wolfblade and Demon Child trilogies.
He is first mentioned in the book Wolfblade, when he is born and raised. When he is four the first assassination attempt on his life is made by his stepfather Nashan Hawksword who wants to replace Damin with his son, also Marla's son, Narvell. Like other Warlord heirs he is fostered in the households of Warlords around Hythria and his best friend is Starros who was brought into the household to confuse potential assassins as to whom Damin is. Damin's uncle Makhas, who rules Krakander in his name until Damin reaches the age of 30, is mad and believes that one day Damin will marry Makhas' daughter Leila, when in fact she and Damin view each other as brother and sister and she becomes the lover of Starros. When Makhas finds out he flies into a rage nearly beating Starros to death which causes Leila to commit suicide, this tragedy forces Damin to take control of his province and depose his uncle.
As Warlord he is a more then capable ruler but gives off an image of a spoiled good for nothing to offput his rivals, Cyrus Eaglespike and the Patriot Faction.
