PersonalityEdit

Prior to By the Silver Wind, Halvden was power-hungry and arrogant. He attempted to kill Rashard multiple times, and almost succeeded in killing Caj. However, he had a deep affection for his mate, Kenna. After being caught and defeated by Caj, he became much more loyal and humble.

RoleEdit

Halvden often tried to undermine Shard's leadership on Windwater. He then attempted to kill Caj so he could achieve what his father never did, become Sverin's wingbrother. In A Shard of Sun, he helps Caj find Sverin and befriends Tocho.

Entire HistoryEdit

In The Summer King Chronicles ArcEdit

Song of the Summer KingEdit

Halvden first appears during the time when Sverin judges the young males who wish to join his pride. He insults Shard by telling him that he could never hunt a boar, but is quieted by Dagr. Sverin allows Halvden to stay, telling him that if he can prove himself to be half the gryfon his father was, he will be a good warrior. When Caj advises the young warriors, he stares at Halvden to get him to stop preening. Flying in soon!

Relationships Edit

KennaEdit

Even before his redemption, Halvden cared deeply for Kenna.

RashardEdit

Halvden and Shard's relationship was initially hostile. Halvden initially saw the latter as a rival and tried to kill Shard sevral times. At the end of By The Silver Wind however, he cheered as Shard took his rightful, place as the Vanir king.

CajEdit

SverinEdit

HallrEdit

Halvden looks up to his father and cares about him deeply, however this relationship seems to be on sided as Hallr argued with Halvden after he lost a sparring match with Shard even though Halvden tried his best to beat him. It's possible that Halvden became a bully because of his one sided relationship with his father. When the wolves killed Hallr, Halvden was devastated and swore vengeance on the wolves.

TochoEdit

When Halvden first encountered Tocho their relationship was initially hostile. Tocho tried to kill Halvden since his father killed one of his packmates. However Tocho fights alongside Caj and Halvden when they battle Sverin.

Halvden: For the sake of my unborn kit. For your own sense of honor. Now you may prove that you're a better and more merciful queen than Sverin was king, that the Vanir are all you say they are.
