A Wakir is the equivalent of a baron in Arrida. The only person higher in rank is the Emrikir, the ruler of the country. Will learns this on his trip to Arrida. Note that this is not to be confused with the Bedullin leader name, the Aseikh. Seley El'then/Selethen was Wakir of Al Shabah, a city state comparative to Redmont Fief. Most of the Wakirs are lazy, but Selethen is the biggest exception: he's captain of the guards of Al Shabah.
