He is a golden-haired boy. He looks maybe fifteen, though he is only twelve.
He walks into a meeting with Elayne and Dyelin, who are discussing the fate of the five other Houses who are planning to stay neutral until a victor is decided. Despite his age, he shows a great deal of political intelligence, when he works out what Elayne had planned for the Borderlanders all along.
When Birgitte Silverbow arrives with the news of Elayne's capture, he heads out with the strike force to retrieve her. A soldier arrives with the news that some hired mercenaries paid by Elayne are attacking the Far Madding Gate. The forces have to be split and he and his forces ride to defend the Far Madding Gate. Arymilla Marne's army attack the gate but is hit behind by the recently rescued Elayne and her force. Arymilla's army soon surrenders.
He is present at the meeting with the neutral High Seats and Elayne. There, they throw their support behind Elayne giving her the required Houses she needs to obtain the Lion Throne.
