GF
Ulric, known in Japan as Wolfrun (ウルフルン Urufurun), is one of the Shadow Realm's commanders. His appearance is that of a wolf, and his character is probably based on the wolves from fairytales such as The Three Little Pigs and Little Red Riding Hood.

Abilities

Using a piece of the Black Paint of Darkness, Ulric can darken a blank page of his Picture Book of Darkness (symbolizes the brand new future). This changes the world into an evil alternate reality, causing people to lose their will to live, and emit Bad Energy. Ulric collects this Bad Energy in hopes of reviving the Evil Emperor Nogo.

He can also create Buffoon monsters using the different-colored noses. All of them contain a Glitter Charm piece, except Blue Nosed Buffoons.

Appearance

Ulric resembles a humanoid gray wolf with violet eyes, long white hair and a white bushy tail. He wears a blue leather, sleeveless biker's outfit with a high collar and chunky belt.

☀ He is based on the Big Bad Wolf in fairy tales such as the Three Little Pigs and Little Red Riding Hood. In Episode 45, it is revealed that he and the other commanders allied themselves with Rascal after feeling that they were mistreated by others for being fairy tale villains. Ulric later returns to his original form Ricky (Ururun (ウルルン) in Japanese version.).[m]

Relationships

Brooha: They are colleagues

Brute: They are colleagues

Personality

He is easygoing, but can be quite cocky and arrogant when he does his work. He is also sometimes very impatient and irritated when he is provoked.

History

Ulric was originally a pixie named Ricky, but as the wolf who played the role of a fairy tale villain, he was mistreated by the other fairytale creatures, until Rascal turned him into Ulric to serve Nogo.

Ulric is the first one to attack the Glitter Force. After two episodes, Brute took over, and after all of the Glitter Force had awakened, Ulric, Brute, and Brooha would either take turns attacking the Glitter Force and gathering dark energy for Nogo, or else attack together. He seems to use the most Twilight Buffoons.

He is once responsible for throwing away one of Brooha's inventions, when he throws away both of her invisibility cameras.

At the end of Season 1, he fights Glitter Sunny, who defeats him, though he survives. He later specifically chooses her to get revenge for this when he decides to attack her while she's separated from the others.

Towards the end of Season 2, he is purified by Glitter Lucky and turned back into Ricky.

Etymology

In one episode of the Japanese version, Wolfrun bought a book full of names and has his name on here (not knowing why it exists in there). His name means "Impatient, Violent, Liar" and "No one loves him so he loves no one back". It really bears his personality. His name also is a pun of his nature as a wolf.

The name Ulric is both an English and a Teutonic baby name. In English, Ulric means "wolf ruler," while the Teutonic meaning for Ulric is "noble ruler."

Trivia

  • Ulric has two main voice actors: Keith Silverstein (English) and Tomoyuki Shimura (Japanese).
  • Ulric often calls Glitter Breeze pet names seemingly for no reason, usually 'Princess'.
  • It is likely that he is the weakest of the Shadow Realm trio as they seem to get harder as they are introduced.
  • Ulric shows up the least of the trio.
