Renald Fanwar is a farmer living in the Borderlands.
He lived and worked on his farm for forty years. He is married to Auaine, and they have sons that have moved away from home to seek their own fortunes. He has six workers on his farm: Merk, Favidan, Rinnin, Veshir, Adamad and Geleni.
When Thulin stops by to tell Fanwar that he is headed north to help the armies fight in Tarmon Gai'don, he decides to do the same. He gathers his wife and his farmhands and they all pack up their belongings to prepare to leave for the Last Battle.
