Winsom is a spirited young elf of the Forerunners. Enamored with Merrilyn’s principles and music, she took up with them and became a strong voice for greater integration with the other races. Her main duty has been coordination of the Forerunners growing intelligence network. She is working to become a bard herself and gained some experience under Merrilyn’s watchful eye. She stayed within the Wychpine with the insistence of Merrilyn, though he knows that staying put when most of the Forerunners are venturing out must chafe her adventuresome spirit. Only great need would force her to abandon her post.
Many of the Forerunners have whispered of a possible romance between Winsom and Merrilyn—but this is far from the truth. There relationship—one cultivated from childhood—flows more along the lines of brother and sister. Merrilyn has looked out for her from bullies and she in turn has always been the voice of reason when he’s being foolhardy.
