"I stole your pilgimage, Royina. I thought the god was telling me to."Learned Chivar dy Cabon is a divine of the Bastard who serves as Royina Ista's spiritual conductor on her pilgrimage. He is the illegitimate son of Ser Odlin dy Cabon, and a third or fourth cousin to Lord dy Yarrin.
Learned dy Cabon is an obese young man of no more than thirty, somewhat near-sighted. He is a gourmand, and during the pilgrimage also begins to drink to excess. The latter is the result of troubling dreams, sent by the Bastard, that show him dying at the hands of Roknari soldiers. With the help of this warning, he and Foix dy Gura are able to evade the Jokonan raiding party and are eventually reuinited with Ista at Porifors. Later, dy Cabon sleeplessly tends to the wounded and dying. His trials have stressed him close to cracking open to the god's presence, making him a potential saint.
