Fergin was a Redarm in Matrim Cauthon's Band of the Red Hand.
He is skinny and not very bright. He has gray eyes.
He goes to Ebou Dar with Mat to find the Bowl of the Winds. When arriving in the Rahad where the Bowl is kept, he narrowly survives an attack by the Gholam.
He then stays in the Tarasin Palace with the rest of the surviving Redarms. Mat sends him to meet him outside the city when Mat carries out his plan of escaping with the captive Aes Sedai.
He then travels with Mat in Valan Luca's Traveling Show as cover for their escape.
He is part of the group that chase Renna Emain after she stabbed Egeanin Tamarath and tries to flee to the town of Coramen.
When the gholam attempts to flee the Band's camp outside Caemlyn, Fergin and Gorderan try and cut off its escape despite Mat's warning to flee. It casually rips out their throats as it passes.
