Wilred is of Ala Mhigan descent and was born in Thanalan. Unhappy in the pauper's life of a refugee, he became a leader to the youth of Little Ala Mhigo. While investigating the activities of the Ascians, the Warrior of Light learns that several Ala Mhigan youths were being persuaded by one to summon Rhalgr as a primal. Since a large volume of crystals is needed for the summoning, the Adventurer and Gundobald intervene before they recklessly try to raid the Amalj'aa's supply.
When Alphinaud begins recruiting for his new company, the Crystal Braves, Wilred takes an interest in joining, as he realizes from his past mistakes that he needs to become a more worldly man.
Later, Riol reveals that Wilred mysteriously went missing after checking the Crystal Braves ledgers. He is later found dead at Urth's Gift by the Warrior of Light, Hoary Boulder, and Coultenet under suspicious circumstances. Riol concludes he must've been silenced after discovering the bribes from Teledji Adeledji.
