Fiddler, 9th Squad, a sapper


GotM, Dramatis Personae



"Another Bridgeburner, this one with a broken, scorched fiddle strapped to his back, came up to the commander. He was wiry and if anything younger– only a few years older than Ganoes himself, who was twelve. Strange pockmarks covered his face and the backs of his hands, and his armour was a mixture of foreign accoutrements over a threadbare, stained uniform. A shortsword hung in a cracked wooden scabbard at his hip."


GotM, UK Trade p.3-4, UK mmpb p.5


"Was born in an alley in Malaz City, learned the stone-cutting trade breaking into barrows up on the plain behind Mock's Hold."


GotM, US HC, p.116


"Fiddler...had avoided a new name through his basic training; it had been Whiskeyjack who'd named him, on that first ride through Raraku."


HoC, UK MMPB, p.302




"...a short, wiry man, who had sapper written all over him."


GotM, UK Trade, p.79


"Skinny, short, with massive wrists"


GotM, UK Trade, p.428


"Poorly healed blisters showed under the uneven bristle of his cheeks and jaw, and his lank red hair hung haphazardly beneath his leather helmet."


GotM, US HC, p.106


"To see a Malazan - now transformed into an apparition of white - beard, hair - the dangling finger bones were now polished, luminous, as was his armour, his weapons."

Conversation between Hedge and Fiddler

RG, UK MMPB, p.892
