Paedrig the Peacemaker is one of the Heroes of the Horn. He is said to be a golden-tongued peacemaker.

Summoned by the Horn Edit

He appears at Falme when Matrim Cauthon blows the Horn of Valere. Rand al'Thor knows him as Patrick as well as Paedrig.[1] Mat later remembers Paedrig when he is talking with Birgitte Silverbow.[2]


Paedrig is a parallel to Saint Patrick. Pádraig is the Irish version of the English name Patrick. His reputation as a golden-tongued peacemaker may stem from the conversions of many pagans in Ireland to Christianity, including sons and daughters of Irish Kings, or from the reputation of the Irish having the gift of the gab.[3]
