STORY (m)=mentioned only, Bk=TW Book


Soldier Half Rankan / half S'danzo

Rankan army officer in charge of the Sanctuary garrison where his father had been slain by the S'danzo many years before. now one of the three officers responsible for the peace in Sanctuary.

Half-brother to Illyra the Seeress. They both had the same father, a Rankan soldier who was cursed by the S'danzo for seducing a S'danzo woman. Walegrin feels himself cursed by the same curse.

His luck is rarely better than 50/50, good and bad, even though Illyra feels it is nonsense. He has become well-known for hunting down and rediscovering the formula for creating Enlibar steel. There is no trace of youth left in his features. He is tall and pale, his thick, sun-bleached hair braided into four braids bound by a bronze circlet. He cuts a very barbaric figure, and usually has at least one of his mercenary company with him.
