At some point in his life, Wealdmaer was recruited into the Order of the Ancients for his exceptional combat skills. Working as a Zealot for his masters, Wealdmaer's job was patrolling all throughout Sciropescire. Thoughtful about his poetry writings, Wealdmaer had his works rooted from his observations on life, especially his views on the "heads lopped from shoulders." Within the Order, he was also a close companion of The Dart, with whom he would often enjoy playing games of chess.
Sometime around 870, during one of his patrols, Wealdmaer encountered the Viking Eivor of the Raven Clan. They engaged in combat, but the Zealot was unable to best Eivor and was killed in combat. With his final words, Wealdmaer declared that it was an honor to be killed by someone like Eivor and that he had no regrets.
- Like other Zealots, Wealdmaer had unique fighting strategies and objects in his weaponry. Upon Eivor's instigation, Wealdmaer wielded with a long spear and moved effortlessly with very quick dashes and dodges.
