The wolvar are a primitive race of "wolverine people" that inhabit the icy continent of Northrend. They are one of the major races of the continent, and are found in most of its southern zones. Their tribes can be found in the Howling Fjord, Grizzly Hills, Dragonblight, Sholazar Basin and Zul'Drak. Though primitive, they are quite capable of diplomacy, and many of their tribes are friendly, or are open to friendship, with one tribe, the Frenzyheart tribe, being a faction in their own right. They speak in low common, but their usage of it differs noticeably from that used by other speakers.
Brann Bronzebeard believes they may be derived from a badger Ancient of some kind, but cannot confirm it due to the Tribunal of Ages entry being corrupted.
The wolvar appear to worship different creatures for one reason or another, most notably the yeti known as Kartak the Abominable. They are also known to worship shoveltusks, proto-dragons, and even robots. Altars to these creatures can be found within many of their villages.
