Holdem was originally a human man who was magically transformed into a wolf beastfallen pf his own free will, and he is Albus the Last Mooncaller Witch's legal guardian due to the everlasting promise he had made to Sorena the renowned Mooncaller Witch.
He was originally a knight who ran away from his family when he was caught having an affair and ended up living with Sorena. He asked Sorena to make him a Beastfallen to hide his royal lineage so that he could live out his life in peace. He was entrusted with taking care of Sorena's granddaughter, Albus, after Sorena was executed.
His appearance is akin to that of a timber wolf. In the Light Novel, he has white fur while in the anime, he has grey fur, the top half of which is mostly shaved off by Zero's magic early in the series as punishment for causing trouble for her and Mercenary. He is tall and athletic-looking, but still has some greatly defined muscle mass.
About five/one decade later, his fur has been fully restored yet completely bleached into white fur with an even rounder face.
Earlier in the series, he is rather cocky and full of himself, as well as very perverse; but as the series goes on, it is revealed he is compassionate. As is shown by his not so secret crush on Albus. He also shows great respect to Mercenary and calls him his brother, due to both of them being beastfallen.
