The Prophet is telling wolves to dance for Skaarsgard, the wolves call themselves "Skaars Dancers", they all dance until they die. It spreads like a disease. This is because of the work of the Prophet in his deception, looking like a god while wearing the mask of Gywindor. Later on, The Prophet is confronted by Gywneth, the Sark, Edme and Faolan. They find out that he was Liam MacDuncan all along, playing at being better than he really was. The group forces him to return the mask to Gywindor's final resting spot, and he escapes.
After his mother's death, Liam went by-lang for long periods of time, and became the Prophet, foolishly believing that he was the one that would bring earth and the Star Ladder together. However, he made the famine even worse, putting wolves in trances and would not stop "dancing for Skaarsgard" until they became so exhausted that they died.
