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


Hell Hound Rankan

Captain of the Hell Hounds and a dedicated soldier with nothing but disdain for the city of Sanctuary and its citizens. He is scrupulously honest, not even letting his magically-induced love for Myrtis sway his judgments too far. Zalbar's square-jawed face underlines his honesty, and his height makes him well known, even among the uniformed Hell Hounds. Even Tempus is no taller.

Since the arrival of the Beysib exiles, the Hell Hounds have lost most of their influence, and with an offer from Jubal to join the first trade fleet back to Beysibs home land, is likely to have left Sanctuary for good.
