King Mortspear was the father of Ungatt Trunn and Verdauga Greeneyes, the grandfather of Tsarmina and Gingivere Greeneyes, and the distant ancestor of Squire Julian Gingivere. He ruled a kingdom in the northern mountain region, of which Trunn had no desire to rule as the oldest of the two wildcat sons. While Verdauga became a wanderer, Trunn elected to become a "conqueror" instead, and resented any reference to his father in the various titles read off by the Grand Fragorl. As Mortspear is only mentioned, we know little about him.
His name means Death Spear; derived from mors/mortis, Latin for death, and the word spear.
