Vulfolaic is titled "Pasha". Pashas were high-ranking individuals in the Ottoman Empire (which originating in Turkey), and is a word of Turkic origin. This connects Vulfolaic, culturally as least, to places like the Turkic-inspired Kazan with its Vizier, and the central Khul empire of Khan Gyorgir, Khan being a Turkic and Mongolian title. This is evidence perhaps that Gundobad and its surrounding lands are in fact in Khul, and that Vulfolaic's Empire is historically connected with the Kabeshian Empire.
- See Location of Gundobad for further discussion.
- "Vulfolaic" (also "Wulfolaic") was the name of a Lombard saint of Carignan in the Ardennes who lived in the 6th century AD. Since the Lombards were a Germanic people who originally spoke a Germanic language, it is extremely likely that the element "vulf/wulf" in his name derives from the common Germanic root for "wolf", *wulfaz, which survives in modern English as wolf.
