Riordan Parnell was a human bard and a member of Spysong.

DescriptionEdit

Riordan was lithe of build[3] and was regarded as quite handsome.[1]

AbilitiesEdit

Riordan was an extraordinary bard,[4] whose ability to coax the truth from reluctant witnesses helped him greatly in his position as a scout for Spysong.[5]

His favorite instrument was the lute. When playing and singing, Riordan slipped enchantments into his tunes and used the magic of his voice—the gift of true bards—to manipulate the mood of his subjects, convincing them of his friendship and trustworthiness.[6]

With the help of some fifteen bards around Vaasa and Damara, Riordan coded important messages for Gareth Dragonsbane into songs. Also, Riordan had a mobile strike force of 100 fighters under his exclusive command, which included 20 centaur cavalrymen.[citation needed]

RelationshipsEdit

Celedon Kearney was Riordan's cousin.[7]
