The Old Wolf of Farron is the leader of the Watchdogs of Farron and inducts the player into their ranks. He bestows their medallion the first time he is interacted upon. Once within the covenant, the player can rank up and receive rewards by offering Wolf's Blood Swordgrasses to him.
Although the wolf appears to be dead, he is actually asleep. He bleeds when struck and is said to be emaciated.
The wolf cannot be fought or killed.
- Prior to Patch 1.03, a bug would sometimes occur where after defeating the Abyss Watchers, players would find themselves unable to interact with the wolf and unable to rank up within the Watchdogs of Farron covenant as a result.
- The wolf is presumably Great Grey Wolf Sif from Dark Souls. However, there is little evidence to confirm this. The Old Wolf may simply be a relative or descendant of Sif.
