The unnamed "Warden" was the ruling Warden, and therefore leader, of Weld during the time of Chieftain Farr's attempt to rid Dorne of the Fellan. He is also the father of Sonia.[1]

Physical appearance[]

The Warden is plump, with stubby fingers and sagging cheeks. His eyes are described as being pale and watery blue. His hair is brown, but thin and scanty. When the Warden first appears he is wearing the traditional red robes of the Warden, fitted with several skirts. He has also appeared wearing a plumed hat with feathers, which are often described as being stained with ink.

The Warden is said to look very different from an official portrait that hangs on a wall in Weld's schoolhouse. In the portrait he is slimmer, his chin looks firmer, his hair is browner and thicker, and his eyes look bluer.[2]

Personality[]

The Warden is selfish and cowardly. Instead of helping the people of Weld by attempting to find a permanent end to the skimmer slays he stays in the Keep of Weld, choosing to protect only himself and is too afraid to venture out. He loves tradition, and preaches to the people to stay safe from skimmers by sealing their windows and doors and sprinkling salt to ward against them. When faced with possible new solutions about the skimmers, the Warden rejects them and refuses to believe that his own ways and beliefs are wrong.[2][3][1]

The Warden's safety procedures for protection against skimmer attacks.

VolunteerNotice

The Warden's notice calling for volunteers to leave Weld.

The Warden is cruel and deceitful as well, seen in his treatment of his only daughter, Sonia, who he neglects and views with disgust and horror, and the fact that he lured the young men of Weld through the Doors, knowing they would not be able to return to Weld through them, to protect his own position as Warden of Weld.[1]
