Ulshun Pral was the leader of the Bentract Imass in the Refugium. He was described as a short, but muscular Imass with honey-skin, overly long arms, and thick shoulders. His body had countless scars, and signs of a broken forearm that had healed unevenly. His left cheekbone was dimpled inward, and his nose was flattened and pressed to one side.
He wore furs hung in a roughly sewn cloak that showed a patchwork of tones and textures.
Feather Witch attempted to force Udinaas to take her into his dream realm to see it for herself, but instead they appeared in the Refugium amidst the Imass. Ulshun Pral pushed Udinaas to the ground with his stone blade to the slave's neck while the other Bentract grabbed Feather Witch. Unable to speak each others' language, Ulshun Pral eventually allowed Udinaas to regain his feet.
The two Letherii slaves explored the nearby ruins of a destroyed Meckros city, whose thousands of deceased residents had been buried by the Bentract. They returned to find Ulshun Pral had been joined by the boy, Rud Elalle. They soon discovered the boy spoke the Meckros trader tongue and learned he was the son of Udinaas and the goddess, Menandore. With the boy interpreting, Ulshun informed the Letherii that they had promised to take care of the boy for Menandore until she returned. He explained how the Bentract had been brought to this world and their Bonecaster had sacrificed her life sealing the gates through which countless beasts came and fought.
Their current realm was surrounded by Starvald Demelain, a Hold unknown to the Letherii. Ulshun tried to explain by describing the Dragons who came from there, including T'iam, Silanah, and others. Before Udinaas and Feather Witch returned home, he promised to ready a feast for their return.
