The Ffolk Return
Llywelyn ap Taran
Llywelyn ap Taran (lew-el-en a p tahr-an) was the Royal Standard Bearer to Brenin Rohan III. He was largely a ceremonial and diplomatic standard bearer although he was progressing as a paladin of Pelor. During the battles of the Civil War in CY 497, Llywelyn was present at the death of his Brenin. Unable to do anything to stop his liege’s death, Llywelyn fled taking the Gonfalon with him. Llywelyn was grief stricken over his presumed failure to protect his Brenin. Llywelyn was aware of the power of the Gonfalon, and decided that Count Granus should not receive it. He hid the Gonfalon with his cousin Bryn, and then knowing that he would eventually be captured by Granus’ soldiers, he committed suicide to prevent revealing the Gonfalon’s whereabouts if he was ever interrogated. His paladin training to Pelor was disturbed by his actions and Llywelyn was transformed into a ghost to guard the hidden location of the Gonfalon until the Gonfalon was needed again. With the Invasion of Geoff by the Giants, it is time for the Gonfalon to reappear and Llywelyn is restless to free his spirit from his task.
