Nazar Kurenin was born in Malkier but grew up in Kandor.


He was jut-nosed. His white hair was cut short and wore a forked beard. He was twice Lan Mandragoran's age and was past his seventieth year. He once again wore the hadori.


He used to be a baker but considers himself a Borderlander first.


He walks in front of Lan and Bukama Marenellin while they are in Canluum.

More than twenty years later, Nazar, Andere and Rakim all meet up with Lan and Bulen along the Plain of Lances. They travel in front of Lan until he finally accepts them into his company. Lan catches sight of Nazer hiding the Golden Crane in his saddlebag but lets him keep it rather than tearing it up.


Nazar dies during Lan's initial skirmishes against the Trollocs at Tarwin's Gap.
