Extremely charismatic Dawyn maintains a commanding personality. He is a
kind, understanding and even a generous man to the common people. He has
extreme religious beliefs and as a result tends to only see the world in black
or white. He is a gentleman and has been extremely polite to several women he
has put to the question. Never letting his manners drop as he has slowly
tortured them to death. He does not like to put people to question but also
will not shy away from it if deemed necessary. His one failing is his weakness
for beautiful helpless women.
A direct descendant of Pedron Niall , Lord Captain Commander of the Children of
Light, Dawyn was raised mostly by
his mother after a fatal accident killed his father at an early age. Sheltered
by a petty Andoran noble, with Whitecloak sympathies, he was raised on
idealistic stories of Whitecloak heroics and their eventual fall from grace due
to corruption and betrayal.
his Lords children, Dawyn received
an excellent classical education with both a good knowledge of politics and
etiquette. From an early age his natural leadership and charisma shone through,
leading him to quickly build up a following of loyal supporters. The local lord
became extremely worried about Dawyn’s
growing support in his protectorate so he raised a warrant for his arrest. Dawyn answered by leaving the area and taking many
of his followers with him including the lords 2 children.
Dawyn subsequently formed a
mercenary squad based upon the Whitecloak military structure. There has not
been a squabble, skirmish, raid, battle or war in the Westlands in the last 20
years that he has not been involved with in some form or another.
His band has grown steadily over the years and show him fierce
loyalty. He has developed extraordinary skills in both tactics and
strategy. But it is when he picks up a
sword that you may see his true talent. Amazingly as he does not rate the skill
highly he could well be one of the deadliest men ever to wield a sword. This is not well known as he prefers not to
fight but to use diplomacy wherever possible to achieve his goals.
desire is to see the resurrection of the Whitecloaks and the eventual
replacement of the black tower with the children of light as the peacemakers
and advisers of the Westlands.

other abnormalities as darkfriend association (e.g. Aes Sedai, Wolfkin, Dream walkers etc.) He has slowly been building up
support with the common people, the merchants and some lesser nobles. He has
been developing a spy network throughout the Westlands.
