The watch (2)

'The Watch' Interpretation by Corporal Nobbs

"See him. In the eternity before dawn. When among mortals courage is at its weakest, when fear sinks talons on the threshold and will not let go. When one awakens to such loneliness as to twist a moan from the chest. But then… you feel it, breath catching. You feel it. You are not alone.
The Watch stands guard."[1]


Yedan Derryg was The Watch, the Prince and Watch of the Shake. His sister, Yan Tovis, or "Twilight" was the Queen of the Shake.

Yedan slaughtered a hundred and more Shake witches and warlocks for plotting against his sister. Only two Shake witches, Pully and Skwish escaped the slaughter. Yedan was banished for his actions and the two surviving witches referred to him as 'Witchslayer'.

'I am The Watch' Interpretation by Corporal Nobbs

Though he was banished he did not stay away and ultimately led his troops to assist the Shake migration. Upon returning to Kharkanas, Yedan found an ancient Hust sword upon the strand, a weapon forged for killing dragons that laughed with every swing. He was a homosexual, remarking that he "never had any interest in women" and thus, win or lose the coming battle, he would be the last prince of the Shake.

Yedan Derryg at the First Shore by Dejan-delic

Yedan remembered memories not his own.[2]

Yedan led the initial defence of the First Shore, killing over a thousand Tiste Liosan, the last Hounds of Light and several soletaken dragons before being slain by Aparal Forge in Eleint form. Such was his skill with the blade that the Liosan on the other side of the gate whispered that a legion of Hust sword-wielding soldiers surely waited for them across the gate to Kharkanas.
