Owen Llanfarythich is the son of farmer Torin, one of the more succesful sheep breeders in Dungil Fens. He is a Lance-Constable in the Dungil Fens guards, and likely to remain at that rank if he doesn't contain his drinking. Perhaps unfortunately so, because he is actually quite a perceptive young man. It's not his fault that his observations are frequently mistaken for delirium.
Actually, that's a lie. It's totally his fault.
