EQ Who's Who - Humans

Little Patch

Character Sketch

Little Patch is the only human who was raised to adolescence as a Wolfrider. Abandoned by his mother and tribe at birth because of the bright, berry-red mark over his right eye, Tyleet found the poor baby, half-dead from misuse, tied to a tree, and adopted him. After growing to adolescence, Little Patch attempted to rejoin his birth-tribe. Rejected initially, he gradually allayed the fears of his fellow humans and gained their trust. In many ways, he proved his willingness to do things the human way, eventually even becoming chief of the village, bringing them the wisdom of wolf-thought. Many turns of the seasons later, old and feeble-minded, Little Patch returned to the holt and died in Tyleet's arms.
