A Piebald leader bonded to a war-horse called Hammer, twin-brother of Peladine. His goal was to revenge the Farseers for all the wrongs done to the Witted folk and to help Peladine move from the Cat to Prince Dutiful's body. Fitz chopped off his other arm, but after he had recovered from that injury, he continued his quest of revenge and came to Buckkeep town where folk knew him as Keppler. He was eventually killed by Fitz who charged into his hiding place in order to stop Padget killing Civil Bresinga. Laudwine escaped his dying body to that of this bond-beast Hammer, but before the stallion could break out of his stall, Fitz killed him too.
