Role in the Story

Spoiler warning: Contains plot elements from multiple books in the series.

Curse of the Mistwraith

Third Age 5637: Lord Tashan advises Earl Grithen not to attack a caravan in the Pass of Orlan because a bardic friend of the clans is riding with it. He is also present at the impromptu celebration held for Lysaer at the western outpost in the passes of the Thaldein Mountains.

Ships of Merior

Third Age 5644: Lord Tashan is at Maenalle's side when Jieret visits their encampment to warn of Lysaer's plans for Avenor. Lord Tashan is present at the early spring ambush in the Pass of Orlan. Lysaer offers Lady Maenalle alliance, which she refuses citing the lack of sanction by the Fellowship, and the influence of the Curse on Lysaer. Because of the guest oath he swore in Curse of the Mistwraith, Lysaer is allowed to leave with his mount and weapons, but the remainder of his caravan is stripped clean off riches and weapons.
