In the Books
King Irwyn is the king of Stetriol during the first book of Shane. Shane rarerly visited him because he was afraid of seeing how bad his father's condition really was. Irwyn suffered from the bonding sickness and tried fixing his condition by killing his own spirit animal. This only made the condition worse. Zerif's jackal later sneaks into Irwyn's room and rips out his throat, killing him.
- "Irwyn" is an English name meaning "sea friend."
