Tam Whitewynter was a Freeglade Lancer, a young mobgnome, and a close friend of Rufus Filatine. He earned his boards at the Skirmish at Wooded Crag, while also being wounded there, although he tried to hide his pain. Rufus was ill with Bark-Croup and missed the battle, but Tam told Rufus all about it. He was traumatised by the battle and the loss of his fellow Freeglade Lancers.
