"Ulf is demanding blood money, which Shagga and Gunthor refuse to pay."
Tyrion Lannister[src]

Ulf is the leader of the Moon Brothers, one of the hill tribes of the Mountains of the Moon recruited by Tyrion Lannister to fight for him in the initial stages of the War of the Five Kings in exchange for gold, weaponry, and armor the hill tribes could employ against House Arryn.
