Regal. Fitz is sharing scraps from a feast with the keep's dogs when Shrewd and Regal come in. Fitz appears from below the table and it is then that Shrewd decides to move him to the keep and educate him.
Nosey. Once Burrich discovers Fitz has bonded with Nosey he takes him away, and Fitz assumed that Burrich killed him and was scared of him from then on. In 'Royal Assassin' Prince Rurisk shows Fitz his prize Buck stud dog - Nosey, now an old but very much alive father of many pups. Burrich had not killed him but had taken him far enough away from Fitz to sever the wit bond - he is shocked when Fitz tells him he believed he murdered Nosey.
Revenge. After King Wisdom summoned the Elderlings to help him against the Outislanders' raids, their repeated flying over the islands of the Outislanders forged many of the folk living there. The Outislanders therefore saw their attacks on the Six Duchies as revenge for this forging...attacks which were stopped by Verity-as-Dragon leading the Elderlings in flights over the Outislanders, forging more people and it would seem that the cycle is doomed to repeat itself....Read the "Tawny Man" Trilogy to find out.
Arrow. Fitz steals Arrow, Regals black horse, to escape from Tradeford. Later he sets him free knowing he would travel better on foot.
There was not enough poison on it.. Fitz chose suicide over being captured by Regal again and he cut his arm with his poisoned knife. After Verity's skill command of 'Come to me' Fitz steals Regal's horse. It is only when he is drinking at a stream that he realises he is not dead from the poison - having killed two people with that knife earlier in the day had probably taken all the poison off it.
yellow. Fitz hears of Regal's anger at some poor quality yellow silk that was provided to him. Fitz masquarades as the silk maker's assistant to gain access to the palace.
The freedom earring. Against Fitzs' will, Starling promises Burrich's freedom earring as payment.
Nik. After some bargaining, Fitz and Starling strike a deal to be brought safetly across the river by Nik and his helpers. Pelf is the name of Nik's sister.
Lord Bright. Although Lord Bright was, in name, in charge of the castle, it was in fact Lady Patience that came to be known as its ruler.
Ivy. After Regal moved inland to Tradeford, Patience essentially ran Buckkeep Castle. She used her own wealth to help villages that had been raided and sent aid to Dukes up and down the coast. She frequently gave her messengers a sprig of ivy as a token from her and they became known as the 'Ivy runners'. She gained great respect from the guards of Buckkeep for her sacrifices and they adopted the Ivy leaf on their uniforms in her honour.
Burrich. Burrich lives with Fitz in an old cabin, and gradually gets him to behave less like a wolf and more like a man.
