Terkan
Description A.k.a. Brother Terkan. Ex-resident of Rockway House who decided to leave the community and live instead in Dargon. At the time he left, he said he had an elderly aunt that he needed to be near. He also said that opportunities for mathematical research were at least as good in the town as at the isolated House. More quietly, he also said that he was fed up with associating with Brother Martren, who was the only other mathematically trained resident of the House at the time. In Dargon, Master Terkan devised Mandelbrot sets (though he called them Terkan Sequences) and his discoveries regarding Chaos Theory led him to follow and fall under the sway of Jhel (q.v.) who, it turned out, was the death of him. As Brother Tri of the last septent of Jhel, he masterminded the scheme to get the Sword of Cleah from Je'lanthra'en through trickery, playing on her desire to resume the life she had lost as a bard. The intervention of Cefn An'Derrin ended his plan, and his life.
