Harper Tillek Hold

Minnarden was Masterharper at Tillek Hold late in the Eighth Interval.


Minnarden agreed to undertake journeyman Robinton's tuition while Robinton was putting in extra study for his Mastery while at Tillek Hold. After Master Minnarden was sent away from the hold to do an arbitration service, Melongel told Robinton that he'd have to wait to hear what his precise duties would be while at the hold. When he returned, Minnarden gave Robinton a copy of the Charter and suggested that he memorize it.

Since Minnarden knew that Robinton was trying to impress Kasia, he suggested that Robinton learn more about a fishing hold.

Minnarden was present when Robinton and Kasia married, and wished them well. Then, when Kasia became ill, Minnarden kept an eye on Robinton while he sat next to Kasia's sickbed.

After Kasia's funeral, Robinton and Minnarden discussed the problems related to the death of Lord Holder Faroguy of High Reaches Hold and the fact that Fax was his nephew.

Personality and Traits

Merelan thought Minnarden was a solid man for basics and a kind person, as well.
