Hairlock

 

Hairlock, Cadre Mage, 2nd Army, an unpleasant rival of Tayschrenn (Dramatis Personae, GotM)

 

'Dully, a row of yellow teeth appeared, then the rest of the mage took shape... Beads of sweat marked theman’s flat, scarred brow and shaved pate – nothing unusual there:Hairlock would sweat in an ice-pit. He held his head at an angle, achieving in his expression something like smug detachment combined with contempt...his small dark eyes...His smile broadened, further flattening his mashed, misaligned nose.'(GotM, UK Trade, p.48)

 

Tattersail POV: 'Hairlock had been with the Empire longer than she had – or Calot.

He’d been among the sorcerers who’d fought against the Malazans in

Seven Cities, before Aren fell and the Holy Falah’d were scattered, before

he’d been given the choice of death or service to the new masters. He’d

joined the 2nd’s cadre at Pan’potsun – like Dujek himself he’d been there,

with the Emperor’s old guard, when the first vipers of usurpation had

stirred, the day the Empire’s First Sword was betrayed and brutally

murdered. Hairlock knew something. But what?'(GotM, UK Trade, p.52)

 

'Hairlock surrounded himself in his own mysterious source...' (GotM, UK Trade, p.56)

 

'...wrapped in the dark grey raincloak that was his battle attire -' (GotM, UK Trade, p.54)

 

note: wore satin slippers before the siege of Pale (GotM, UK Trade, p.48)
