|“||Jungby's ruling family of master archers are descended from Ulir, the God of Archery.||”|
— A Grannvale villager
As with the other Crusaders, Ulir was a warrior fighting in a revolution against the tyranny of the Loptrian Empire, and was one of the survivors barricaded in Darna Fortress when the tide turned against their movement. It was at this fortress that the Miracle of Darna occurred, changing the tide of the war: Ulir was chosen by an unidentified member of the twelve dragon "gods" who descended upon the fortress, to undergo a blood-bond with said dragon, transforming him into one of the Crusaders. He was granted Yewfelle, sealed to his new holy lineage, by this dragon.
With the other Crusaders, Ulir fought in the rest of the Holy War and contributed to the downfall of the Loptrian Empire. At the war's conclusion, Ulir and five other Crusaders founded the six states of Grannvale, the kingdom founded by their leader Saint Heim, with Ulir founding Jungby.
