was the assistant to Grianne Ohmsford
After twenty years of service he was growing old; his movements were slowing and his joints tightened and cramped after too much use. Gnarled stocky body that was still strong. Rough gravel-laced voice. Seamed, bearded face.1
Kindness in his eyes, which was an indicator of the nature of the man within.2
Showed good judgement, discretion and common sense.
Born and raised in Culhaven
. Before going to Paranor
to serve the Ard Rhys, he had never been much of anywhere.
Tagwen was the only assistant Grianne had ever had. He had been at Paranor the same amount of time as Grianne. He served Grianne because he believed in what she was doing and in what she meant to the Four Lands.3
Tagwen announced to Grianne that Kermadec had arrived.4
