Blind was a Hound of Shadow.[1] She was described as wide and heavy, with fur and eyes both white. Blind possessed no pupils but could see things the other hounds could not. Her mate was Baran and she was the mother of Gear.[2]

In Gardens of the Moon Edit

In 1161BS, Blind and the other Hounds were summoned by Shadowthrone to eliminate a regiment of the Itko Kanese 8th Cavalry to disguise his and Cotillion's abduction of Sorry.[3] The Hounds killed 175 soldiers and 210 horses in the Itko Kan Massacre while suffering no casualties of their own.[4]

Two years later, when Quick Ben intruded in the Warren of Shadow, the Hounds were quick to confront him. He greeted each by name, including Blind, and they herded him to Shadowkeep for an audience with Shadowthrone.[5]

With Quick Ben's aid, all seven Hounds ran the trespassing puppet Hairlock to ground on the Rhivi Plain and tore him to pieces before confronting Ganoes Paran. Paran's life was spared by the intervention of the Tiste Andii, Anomander Rake. Rake slew Doan and Ganrod with his soul stealing sword Dragnipur and drove off the others.[6]

In Deadhouse GatesEdit

The five remaining Hounds (Blind, Baran, Gear, Rood, and Shan) accompanied Fiddler, Apsalar, Crokus Younghand, Icarium, Mappo, and Iskaral Pust through the maze surrounding Tremorlor.[7] The Hounds served as protection from the hordes of Soletaken and D'ivers following Shadowthrone's false Path of Hands to the Azath House. They also proved as a deterrent against the rage of Icarium. During the journey, Blind killed a D'ivers Dhenrabi, but cringed in the presence of Moby, the Bhok'arala familiar.[8][9]
