Captured on the moors and found by the Nessian knot during the trials underneath Thorn's manor in a torture room. He was tortured for information most of which the knot already knew. Broken of his faith in the Shining Lord Mitra by Jameskar, he was given over to Tiadora's ministrations. Due to his knowledge of the border fort Balentyne watchtower he was not outright dispatched.
After his time with Tiadora he proved to have an insatiable bloodlust and was recruited as Tristam's squire and a member of the ninth knot.
