Timmain is the "Memory" of the High-Ones and direct ancestral mother of the Wolfriders
, and indirectly, some of the Go-Backs
as well. Her only lifemate was Adya
who was killed upon their arrival.
Timmain was a shapeshifter and in her wolf guise, befinded the local wolf packs, thus allowing her to defeat Haken and sire the first chief of the Wolfriders, Timmorn YellowEyes
by a male wolf. She also seams to have had a daughter with Aerth
who loved her. It's speculated this daughter may be Rellah
For a long time Timmain lived as a wolf and remained thus until the Shards
series when she transformed to combat Winnowill
. Afterwards, Timmain remained as a white wolf bonded with Skywise
In recent series, mainly The Searcher and the Sword
and The Discovery
, Timmain is in her true elf form wearing nothing but her hair as a garment.
