Lupis is a dark, smoky-gray wolf with yellow eyes and thick fur.
He was formally head tracker and a member of the The Pack of Night.
- As a pup, Lupis was reasonably quiet and placid, even after his traumatic flight from the Kingdom. However, he took his mother Mink's last words to heart and never told anyone who he was, revealing a familial devotion and potential for deceit. Despite his hidden identity, he became fast friends with Luna, and their friendship withstood the tests of time, growing stronger in the duration of the one year time skip.
- After one year of living in the Pack of Night, Lupis has become a popular, respected wolf. He seems to maintain an awkward, on-and-off relationship with Luna while simultaneously fending off Midnight's advances. However, Lupis lacks Luna's penchant for rebelliousness, and is much more complacent with Fang and Bone's dominating command than she is. He is steadfast and loyal to both her and the Pack, and still finds ways to have fun, regardless of his painful past.
- He was mistakenly shown with light gray fur and green eyes.
- Lupis would be about 20 years old in human years.
In this episode, Lupis is spotted lying unconscious in a puddle of blood. He is soon after nudged by Luna, causing him to wake up and start hyperventilating. When Luna asks who he is, Lupis sheepishly replies that he does not remember. He thanks Luna when she offers to take care of him and let him into the Pack of Night.

Their conversation is interrupted by Bone, who growls at Lupis to go to the den with him before he wakes everybody up. Lupis then says good-bye to Luna and walks away.
Lupis wakes up from sleeping to find Midnight sleeping beside him. He asks why she isn't sleeping in her normal spot. Midnight replies that she got tired of the spot and wants to have Lupis there to protect her. Embarrassed, Lupis tells her that Yin-Yang is calling him.

He tries to stop Luna from speaking against Fang during the meeting, later stating that it was "by far, the stupidest thing she has ever done." When Fang pins Luna down and begins to yell at her, preparing to kill her, Lupis pleads for him to stop but is held back by Bone, who has a change of heart soon after and also asks for Fang to spare his sister. After Luna is exiled, Fang turns to Lupis and explains that he has been recruited to the Western Kingdom to join Rune, leaving Lupis horrified.
Lupis is seen walking with Rune, Kia, and Marra; being taken as a "belonging" of Rune from the Pack of Night. Lupis is lead to believe the only reason Rune found him was because Marra had revealed his place in the Pack of Night. Marra defends herself, describing how she hates Rune. He is a murderous wolf, and the Kingdom Wolves, along with the Packs, want him dead. She finally comes to one conclusion: Lupis must kill Rune. Lupis is hesitant at first, but then agrees to challenge Rune to a duel the following morning.
Later on in the episode, a day has passed, and it is the morning on which Lupis had promised to challenge Rune to a duel. Holding back his cowardness, he steps out to Challenge Rune to a duel. Rune acts if it is a joke, and asks Lupis if he had ever fought a wolf before, and let alone, killed one. Lupis lunges forward, but Rune swiftly doges, but falls to the side. Lupis pins down Rune, nd Marra tells him that he has a chance to kill him. After Lupis' hesitation, Rune flips him under and has him pinned down in the snow. Rune says to Lupis that he must "be the hunter, or he will be the prey." Lupis becomes confused and angry and asks Rune why he doensnt just kill him, instead of playing games. Lupis yells that he is less than his father, but Rune simply smiles. "Are you, now?" He says. "Or are you the first son of Rune?"
- Lupis is seen, appalled at the idea of Rune being his father. He then replies, "My father was Balder the brave, not a common murderer like you." Rune goes on to ask Lupis about his three littermates (believed to of died shortly after their birth), after which explaining to him that Rune and his mother, Mink would meet for two months following Erol, Aurora and Tia were born. He then adds "When she had her second litter of pups, Balder realised what she had done."
- Shortly after a flashback of Rune discovering his pups murdered, Rune continues, telling Lupis "I'm not bringing you home to kill you. I'm bringing you home as a son." and "I want you to take my throne in the kingdom!" Lupis agrees to return with Rune on the condition Rune would help him find Luna.
- Soon after, in the episode, Marra tells Lupis that Rune is lying and he wasn't there but he also had no idea how Rune had treated the kingdom wolves or what he'd done to her. Lupis retorts with "You would have gladly seen me die for your cause. Why should I listen to you?" Marra gets furious, wondering why she'd ever held the assumption that Lupis would kill Rune. Rune breaks in, Marra's face turning from angry, to sad, saying "Calm down, darling. You've lost, just like your father before you, it runs in your family. Except it and move on!" Then turns to Kia and states "We'll have to move quickly to reach the kingdom." Lupis watches as Marra sends Rune to the ground, a huge gash appearing on his neck and blood pouring out. Marra declares that she has taken his wings, leaving a shocked Lupis.
