Ganoes Stabro Paran was the eldest son of House Paran of Unta. He was born in Unta, the capital of the Malazan Empire, in the 1142nd year of Burn's Sleep. Ganoes Paran was a central character in the Malazan Book of the Fallen. He was described as having black hair, an easy face to rest eyes upon and a broad back. He wore a helm as part of his uniform and when on the road, wore a travelling cloak.
1154th year of Burn's SleepEdit
In 1154BS, Ganoes Paran visited Malaz City for the third time in as many years with his father, who was negotiating with harbor officials about the island export tithe. Whilst Ganoes' father was negotiating, Ganoes ventured out to the wall of Mock's Hold and observed the riots in the Mouse Quarter. Whilst watching the distant flames and smoke, he met Whiskeyjack, Fiddler and Surly. In his discussion with Whiskeyjack, to the older man's disapproval, he mentioned dreams of soldiering and grandeur where he imagined himself a hero and commented that he did not believe the world needed another "wine merchant".
At the time Paran noted that Whiskeyjack seemed young and that Fiddler was not much older than his own 12 years, however, Paran's false assessment at the end of the prologue about the source of a smell must be taken as a pointer that, at that age, his judgment wasn't necessarily accurate.
1161st year of Burn's SleepEdit
Seven years after the events in the Prologue, Ganoes Paran was newly stationed in Itko Kan. As a graduate of the Marine Academy's officer training corps, he had reached the rank of Lieutenant in the 8th Cavalry. After volunteering to lead the inspection detail, he was charged with escorting Adjunct Lorn through the Itko Kan Massacre, which had been initiated by Ammanas and perpetrated by the Hounds of Shadow.
Adjunct Lorn assigned Paran a commission on her staff in order to continue the investigation into the massacre. Paran's first assignment was to make enquiries in the market town of Gerrom. He discovered the aftermath of yet another slaughter. Paran then returned to Unta, escorted by Topper by way of the Imperial Warren, to report his findings and met Surly, now Empress Laseen, again when he and Topper exited the Warren in the Hall of the Throne.
Paran was ordered by Adjunct Lorn to rejoin the Officer Corps in Unta to continue his training until such time as she would need him again. Working with the Adjunct, he became accustomed to being used.
1163rd year of Burn's sleep onwardsEdit
By the 1163rd year of Burn's Sleep, Ganoes Paran ranked a Captain, and was dispatched to his new permanent command with the Bridgeburners of the 2nd Malaz Army. The details of the assignment were conveyed to him by Topper who arrive on board the Imperial trireme by Imperial Warren around the time of the final battle at Pale. The top secret part of Paran's mission was to deal with the possessed young girl Sorry, whom he was to track in continuation of his mission from Ikto Kan. Topper told him that it was feared that Sorry might have corrupted the Bridgeburners and possibly Dujek Onearm and the entire 2nd army. This was Paran's second encounter with the Claw, and in both encounters, the two men parted on bad terms, with Topper accusing Paran of being arrogant and discourteous.
Paran landed in Genabaris on Genabackis during the Season of Currents in 1163 BS. His contact, a government agent, possibly Claw, observed that Paran looked like a member of the nobility and that his longsword showed not a single stain. He surmised that Paran was "as green as the rancid waters of this bay". When they made eye-contact however, the agent judged there to be something dangerous in Paran's gaze, making his eyes look older than the rest of him. Paran then grabbed his duffel bag and followed the agent to meet up with the Moranth.
Paran had never heard of Quorls and was surprised to be told that he would be flying. He was transported to within viewing distance of Pale where he was met by Toc the Younger who rode with him to the now subjugated city. Paran, who had not called anyone a friend in two years, got on well with Toc despite the man being a Claw. When they parted ways, Toc said Paran should call on him if he needed help.
Paran briefly met some of the Bridgeburners in Knobb's Inn in Pale and expressed his trepidation about leading a unit which was reputed to go through so many officers. Upon leaving the Inn, he was attacked and mortally wounded by Sorry. Mallet later estimated that the first wound was a fatal stab up under his heart, the second would have killed more slowly but no less certain. Paran however retained life through the intervention of Oponn. The deal between Oponn and the Gatekeeper included that someone close to Paran would die an early, meaningless death instead. Paran also encountered Shadowthrone and two of the Hounds after Oponn had left and managed to persuade the Master of Shadow that he would be better served letting Paran go. Paran was then found in Pale over an hour later by Picker and Antsy and taken by Quick Ben, Kalam and Mallet to recover with the mage Tattersail as the Bridgeburners were about to travel with the Black Moranth to Darujhistan.
Mallet stated that Paran's forced healing had only seen to the flesh and that he feared for the state of the Captain's mind. Paran would be suffering from shock which would need time to heal. As the forced healing had severed the connections between the physical and mental harm, Mallet could do nothing to speed up the recovery. Upon the instructions of Whiskeyjack, Paran was to be kept hidden by Tattersail and Hairlock during his recovery. As far as everyone else was concerned, he had disappeared.
Within hours of his arrival at Tattersail's, the soul-shifted puppet Hairlock was tracked by Gear, one of the Hounds of Shadow, to Tattersail's abode. Paran, a blank cast to his eyes, appeared from the inner bedroom and attacked the Hound, wounding Gear in the chest with his sword Chance causing the Hound to flee by Warren.
Paran tended to the wounded sorceress whilst she lay fevered from the attack. He had only vague memories of events following his stabbing and Hairlock, who seemed to hate the Captain, refused to answer questions although he divulged that the sorceress had somehow managed to instinctively raise a spell which warded Paran from being discovered by Tayschrenn.
When Tattersail regained her senses, she and Paran discussed the events surrounding his miraculous recovery and the likelihood that he was being used by Oponn. Tattersail asked Paran not to leave as fear of the Captain's sword was all that kept Hairlock from attacking her and he agreed.
Tattersail speculated that the reason for Adjunct Lorn being unable to track the Captain was that his encounter with Oponn had severed the link.
After Tattersail left for Darujhistan to warn Whiskeyjack about danger from Lorn and her T'lan Imass, Paran learned from Toc the Younger that the danger was possibly greater than anticipated and he decided to follow her with Toc insisting on coming along. Whilst travelling in pursuit of Tattersail, they were waylaid by the puppet Hairlock who sent Toc into a rent, however, the puppet's attack on Paran was interrupted by the arrival of the Hounds of Shadow. The Hounds, Gear amongst them, killed the puppet. They then turned their eyes on Paran who was saved by the opportune arrival of Anomander Rake who slayed two of the Hounds with his sword, Dragnipur.
After Rake's departure Paran dipped a hand in a Hound's blood and found himself within Dragnipur, unchained. He briefly spoke to one of the sword's prisoners before helping the Hounds escape by tricking them into a portal to the Warren of Darkness.
A couple of days after freeing the Hounds, Paran encountered a herd of Bhederin and was attacked by a youth as the herd passed. He knocked the boy unconscious. The boy belonged to a group of Rhivi who appeared and also attacked the captain. They stopped after Paran's sword inexplicably turned aside all projectiles thrown at him. The group then gave way to a little girl, about five years of age, who seemed very familiar to Paran. Through an interpreter, he was told that the girl had ordered his life to be spared and that he should not grieve as he would meet again the woman he thought dead. Even as the Rhivi disappeared in a cloud of dust, Paran recognised Tattersail's likeness in the girl.
Soon after, Paran encountered the injured Coll. Paran offered to accompany Coll back to Darujhistan and let him use his packhorse, sparing the injured man a ride on a mule. The two men shared a camp fire and over a bottle of wine exchanged life stories. By the time they got to the city, Coll's injuries had worsened and Paran, with the help of a couple of guards, had Coll conveyed to his stated destination, the Phoenix Inn. Sat at a table in the bar, musing that his new friend might soon be dead, Paran had doubts about whether his luck had turned and drove his sword into the wood of the table. As he was about to snap the blade, Kalam turned up and introduced himself. Paran immediately asked after the squad's healer and ordered him brought to the Inn. Mallet turned up soon after, accompanied by Whiskeyjack. The healer was able to save Coll's life and the sergeant was told by Paran that Tattersail died on the Rhivi Plain. Whiskeyjack then used a device to contact Dujek and appraised him of the latest events. Paran agreed to be part of the rebellion of Onearm's Host as long as he would get his revenge against Tayschrenn. He told Dujek that he wanted Whiskeyjack to remain in command locally.
First Paran and then later his sword were tools of Oponn. When he felt his luck had turned, just before leaving Darujhistan, he gave his sword to Cotillion. To replace "Chance" he took Adjunct Lorn's Otataral sword from her after her assassination.
As Captain of the Bridgeburners, Paran rejoined Dujek's army at Pale. Normally disdainful of nobleborn officers and suspicious of further betrayal, the Bridgeburners were not endeared to their new captain. Whiskeyjack was concerned enough to ask Mallet to watch the young man's back.
In the months after his trip into Dragnipur, Paran was plagued by illness, unearthly visions, and unfamiliar memories. He suspected the cause was exposure to the Hound's blood. His condition did not go unnoticed by Quick Ben or by Mallet, whose Denul powers recoiled in Paran's presence.
In reality, Paran had been chosen by the Azath to be the Master of the Deck. A new Unaligned and near-Ascendant power, Paran had been chosen to adjudicate at a time of uncertainty in the Deck of Dragons. This was confirmed by several sources including Silverfox, Quick Ben, and Raest, now guardian of Finnest House, when Paran's spirit traveled there. At the Azath House the captain discovered he could travel to various Warrens merely by focusing on their representative tiles. Additionally, Paran's own image appeared on a new card painted underneath Fiddler and Hedge's stacked gaming table.
Dujek had the sad duty of informing Paran of The Cull in Unta, which had led to the deaths of his parents, the rise of Tavore to Adjunct, and the imprisonment of his sister Felisin. Paran's life was further complicated by the arrival of Silverfox, who although still a child, bore the adult soul of his former lover Tattersail. The two shared a connection that could be felt even at great distances.
When Onearm's Host allied with the forces of Caladan Brood to take on the Pannion Domin, Dujek sent Paran and the Bridgeburners to the Barghast Range by quorl, courtesy of Twist and the Black Moranth. Surrounded by angry White Face Barghast, Paran was to use Trotts' respected lineage to secure an alliance with the war chief, Humbrall Taur. Trotts fought a duel to the death Taur's youngest son to be acknowledged by the Barghast. When the duel ended with Taur's son dead and Trotts dying, Paran had to restrain a group of fearful and mutinous Bridgeburners from taking violent preemptive action to escape the camp. Paran fetched Mallet in time to save Trotts' life and continued negotiations until the late arrival of Quick Ben, who brought news the lost Barghast spirits were entombed below Capustan. Paran's successful handling of the mission earned his soldiers' grudging respect, with Aimless calling him "cold as a Jaghut winter".
He took over as the second-in-command of Trotts' warhost and marched with the White Faces to Capustan, which had just fallen to Septarch Kulpath's Pannion hordes. The Bridgeburners were the first to the relief of Capustan, using Moranth munitions to blast their way past the 200 Betaklites and over a thousand Tenescowri guarding the city's North Gate. Passing through the empty streets followed by peasant cannibals, they quickly encountered Gruntle and joined his troop atop a defendable tenement rooftop. Frightened and angered by their precarious situation and by the sickly Paran's lack of communication, Antsy nearly drew his sword on the captain. Paran offered his unprotected back to the sergeant before Mallet was able to defuse the situation.
Again Paran was assailed by his role as the Master of the Deck, observing Fener being pulled down into the mortal world near three figures standing before a jade monlith. He then began conversing in his mind with Nightchill/Silverfox, telling her that if she and her fellow Elder Gods had chosen him to be the Deck's mitigator, then they had chosen poorly. He would never be another god's puppet and vowed to call down the Hounds of Shadow upon her. Nightchill tempered his anger by telling him all was not what it seemed, and that he was being kept ignorant of the true battle out of mercy. Nightchill revealed that the man Paran had spoken to within Dragnipur had been Draconus, the weapon's forger. His strength was needed for the coming battle, but he would need to be released from his prison first. Unfortunately, this would require shattering the sword and freeing all of its other prisoners as well. She said there was still time for Draconus to find a way to escape without unleashing a legion of horrors upon the world.
When Paran returned to his senses, he took the Bridgeburners, along with Gruntle, to the Thrall. Here they witnessed Shield Anvil Itkovian punish the traitorous Rath'Fener then take on the grief of the city to cleanse it. Paran stepped forward to aid the Shield Anvil as he faltered without his god, and Mallet, with the help of the Barghast spirits, was also pushed into action. Paran then mediated between Rath'Trake, Trake's Mortal Sword, and Itkovian, enabling an uneasy balance to be found. He then stepped back to allow the Barghast to claim their ancestors.
Paran and Gruntle commiserated over their unwanted roles as representatives of the world's higher powers. The Master of the Deck had come to the realisation that he was being asked to bless or deny the addition of the Crippled God's new House of Chains to the Deck of Dragons. Many were pushing for denial, including Anomander Rake, Trake, and Hood, but a voice inside Paran demanded the opposite. Gruntle pointed out that the new House currently operated as it pleased outside the rules, but a sanctioned House would be bounded to the same rules as everyone else. Paran also learned he had to be careful with his statements. Giving his metaphorical blessing to Velbara's request to take custody of the prisoner, Anaster, physically staggered the Destriant with the weight of his words.
After the armies of Dujek and Brood defeated the last of Kulpath's troops, they gathered representatives of all the allied factions to decide on their next step. The armies would next march on the Pannion city of Coral. By this time Silverfox had fully matured into her role as Bonecaster and whatever link Paran shared with her Tattersail soul was severed.
The Master of the Deck used his powers to visit the Throne of Shadow on Drift Avalii where he learned that it was being sought by the Tiste Edur. He also found himself returned to the Warren within Dragnipur. He sought out Draconus who told him that Rake's failure to fill the prison with new souls risked disaster. Fewer and fewer prisoners were able to pull the monstrous wagon and keep the Gate of Darkness ahead of the storm of Chaos that pursued it. He argued that Dragnipur must be destroyed.
Paran and the Bridgeburners were secretly sent in advance of the main army to reconnoiter the lands outside Coral. They seized a network of defensive trenches and tunnels on a wooded slope to the city's north. When a company of Beklites and Urdomen stumbled upon them, they defended the position until reinforced by Dujek.
In the fighting, Quick Ben showed Paran how to use his Ascendant powers to draw his own cards of the Deck. Together they managed to bring down one of the Pannion Seer's demonic Condors and attack it on the ground. The fight brought out Paran's Hound aspect, and he simultaneously battled the condor as both man and Hound. Quick Ben recognised this power as coming from Kurald Emurlahn, but Paran had no recollection afterwards of his transformation. He ordered Mallet administer healing to his soldiers and not spend his powers removing the resulting scars from his face and torn ear.
During the ensuing Battle of Black Coral, the Bridgeburners were sent into the city by quorl under the cover of darkness. Their mission was to attack the keep of the Pannion Seer while Dujek led the rest of the army into the city itself. While his soldiers kept the Pannion Seer's condors at bay and breached the keep's wall, Paran and Quick Ben reached the keep's roof. They captured the Seer and brought him to Morn via Warren where Paran used his Hound aspect to prevent Kilava from killing their prisoner. They were able to reverse Kilava's ancient error by convincing the Seer to reseal the Rent with the K'Chain Che'Malle Matron's soul and releasing his sister.
Then Quick Ben brought them to Burn's realm where Paran was witness to the birth of possibly the final manifestation of Omtose Phellack. The Seer, now free of the Crippled God's corruptive influence, fully unveiled the Jaghut Warren to slow the God's infection of Burn to a crawl. Burn's priestess, the Witch of Tennes, warned to never reveal the manifestation's existence.
Returning to the battle, Paran and Quick Ben learned of the deaths of Whiskeyjack and most of the Bridgeburners. Paran drew a card to transport them to the tomb in throneroom of Moon's Spawn so they could pay their respects. Thinking it probably far too late, he blessed them one and all. Afterwards, Paran turned down Dujek's offer to accompany him to Seven Cities to put down the rebellion. Instead, the High Fist allowed Paran and the remaining Bridgeburners to secretly retire as had been Whiskeyjack's wish. To the Empress and Empire-at-large, they were believed dead.
Several of the Bridgeburners used their accumulated back pay to buy and renovate K'rul's Bar. Three weeks in the company of his former subordinates was enough to convince Paran to move into Finnest House with Raest. The Jaghut guardian greeted his new houseguest without enthusiasm.
After Darujhistan, Ganoes decided to head back to Quon Tali by way of the Seven Cities, where his first port of call was Kansu. He freed the Deragoth with the help of Dead Hedge, so that they could kill Dejim Nebrahl and, subsequently, Poliel.
Returning to the ArmyEdit
Paran left the Trygalle Trade Guild caravan, giving them a shard of Lorn's otataral sword in payment, and found himself nearby Onearm's Host, where he was at first arrested as a deserter. But he shortly escaped, breaking the nose of corporal Futhgar - the soldier who arrested him - and knocking out Captain Sweetcreek, the camp's current ranking officer (as the plague had incapacitated the others). He found a scout he knew called Hurlochel, who told him to pretend to be Captain Kindly, which with all off the Fists and Dujek himself laid up sick, catapulted him as "Captain Kindly" into the position of ranking officer.
In an attempt to cure the plague Paran travelled into G'danisban, the city nearby the Host's camp, bringing in tow Noto Boil, the head surgeon. His intended destination was the Grand Temple of Poliel, which he was brought to by Brokeface. When there, he attacked Poliel, impaling her with a shard of otataral. He then summoned the Hounds, as he had been promised by Shadowthrone, and they came with the Deragoth in tow. Paran exited the Grand Temple, leaving to Soliel's temple instead, after he left Apsalar held the Hounds off while Quick Ben made his escape from the temple also, bringing his sister Torahaval to safety. Paran bargained with Soliel for the healing of the plague that Poliel had caused.
During the events which lead to the death of Poliel and subsequent curing of the plague by Soliel, the remaining officers in Dujek's camp found out Paran's real identity, and after Dujek's death read his reports on him. After these revelations the Fists decided to give Ganoes Paran the rank of High Fist.
Paran and his Host arrived in northern Kolanse by infiltrating the North Citadel (called North Keep by the Forkrul Assail) via Warren. During the siege, Paran told his High Mage Noto Boil that he only answers to the Empress. When Boil pointed out that the Empress is dead, Paran replied that that means he answers to no one, not even the High Mage. They were subsequently besieged at the stronghold but broke the siege and marched south, destroying two other Assail forces along the way.
They arrived in time to save the Bonehunters after which he was reunited with his sister, Tavore. He attended the funerals for Gesler, Stormy and other combatants of the Battle of the Spire near Kolanse City.
- "Of all the weapons we turn upon ourselves, guilt is the sharpest, Silverfox. It can carve one’s own past into unrecognizable shapes, false memories leading to beliefs that sow all kinds of obsessions."
- ―Ganoes Paran speaking with Silverfox about her mother, the Mhybe
- "The heart of wisdom is tolerance. I think."
- ―Ganoes Paran
- Anomander Rake: "Whatever you've done to draw the attention of gods, it was unwise."
- Ganoes Paran: "It seems I never learn."
- Anomander Rake (smiling): "Then we are much alike, mortal."
- ―Ganoes and Rake meet as the Hounds of Shadow attack[src]
Paran touched the blood of a Hound of Shadow slain by Anomander Rake, which caused him to walk unchained into Dragnipur. This encounter also led to Paran taking on some hound-like qualities. When encountering Paran, the Hound Rood was puzzled by feelings of kinship. Although not fully Soletaken, Paran on a few occasions became almost invisible within a writhing, shadow-woven hound.
- "Not a Soletaken - not a veering. These are two creatures - man and beast - woven together... somehow. And the power behind it - it's Shadow. Kurald Emurlahn."
- ―Quick Ben
Paran had no recollection of what happened during his transformations.
