The Hanged Man[]

Ciaran shows up unexpectedly when Rune is about to attend his first meeting of Arcanum in the Convocation. He uses his magic to change Rune into more Court appropriate clothing, including a cape her brought with him. Then, he enters the Iconsgison with him, a political statement about their potential relationship.


Magical Abilities[]

Ciaran specializes in dreams and excels at wild magic. For example, colors and textures tend to change around him. He is able to manipulate dreams in others without a sigil.[1]

He claims that his Seeing capabilities are akin to dreams and prophecies.

Visions and True Seeings[]

Ciaran seems to be briefly inhabited by experiences of future events while in Farstryke Castle:

  • "You are only my face and voice, not my Will, and I will have you remember that!"
  • "She fooled us all, like Russian dolls inside Russian dolls inside Russian dolls. The canny bitch!"
  • "Their bodies have been lost to the waves. There is no more cause for hope."
  • "The Westlands is advancing on us, we must prepare."
    • This last may be a reference to the events in the Moral Certainties compound at the end of The Last Sun

While in the Moral Certainties Compound, Ciaran foresees:[2]

  • "They'll be in oilskins."
    • This refers to the draugs that attack soon after.
