I had held the question in my mind ever since I formed the decision to explore these mountains.

"Who is my father?" I said.

Gale's gazed softened.

"Your father is here," he said, and then. "Tahm of Farn, I am your father."

"Why did you leave my mother?"

"I did not leave her. I have lived here since I was a boy of your age. She was a lone explorer like you, who came here. I taught her much of what she knows about dyes. But she did not believe this mountain was a good place to raise a child."
