Shades of Amber
Minwar is the sedate and taciturn guardian of the region of shadow immediately adjacent to Corwin’s pattern. Spawned from a branch of the tree Yggdrasil—the tree that marks the midpoint between Amber and Chaos—it takes the form of a younger version of its progenitor. It boasts a full cloak of dark green leaves, rough and deeply fissured bark, a fantastic gnarl of roots. Mists in varying shades of gray and silver obscure the near distances and drift lazily over the pattern.
It speaks to visitors, but briefly and slowly, and on the orders of Corwin keeps shadow walkers from reaching his pattern by diverting them. The pattern here is the only known means of reaching Bright.
