Balder is mentioned by Yin-Yang, in a story about the time when she used to live in the west. She tells some of the pack's pups that he was the oldest and bravest of his brothers and that he did not mind walking among the other packs - A trait his mother and his brother Apollo never had. He is seen dead with Mink and the pups at the end of her story.
He is seen with Mink taking the pups to the Kingdom. When Lupis asks why he left the Kingdom for Mink, he is interrupted by his brother Kahleel, the new king. He is seen talking to Apollo about how he was chosen to be king not him.
When Kaheel goes to see Apollo and Rune he warns him not to turn his back on them. In T'jarll's den he is seen talking about Lupis's health. Back at the den he is told by Rune that his family are all dead.He is outnumbered by Rune's followers and he is killed.
He is seen trying to get out of the Kingdom to make dirt, but his father keeps sending guards for him. When Mink tries to steal his rabbit he asks for her name for the rabbit. He asks her if she wanted to come to the Kingdom for deer, but is stopped by Rune telling him to go back to the Kingdom.
He is seen with Mink talking about leaving the Kingdom. When Rune tries to stop him he pins him down and scars his face. His head is seen beside Rune later on.
Balder doesn't make a formal appearance, but is mentioned when Lupis exclaims, "I'm the last son of Balder! You found me! Congratulations!"
He also makes a brief (and dead) appearance at the very end of the episode when young Rune chewing on a piece of meat turns into an adult Rune biting Balder's throat.
- Balder means "Prince" or "Ruler".
- The marking on his cheek has been seen brown on white, or white on brown.
- Some fans were confused whether his name is spelled Baulder or Balder. However, it has been revealed that Balder is the right way to spell it, as seen in the credits to Fall From Grace, Rise To Power.
