Teir is a mysterious and relatively new character. Close-lipped about his past, little of Teir's history is known at this time. Ember appeared especially drawn to him at their first meeting. Teir is a master of stealth and stalking. Spending countless years alone, Teir goes where he pleases, when he pleases and is beholden to no one. Teir has a strong affinity for animals of any kind and seemed to attract the hideous shapechanged creatures that Winnowill created. The Master of the Shapechanged craved Teir's powers in order to kill the Wolfriders. When Leetah killed the Master of the Shapechanged, Teir was caught in the middle, and his sending and animal abilities were burned out. Ember was forced to issued Teir an ultimatum: to be healed, he must leave Howling Rock and her tribe forever; if he remained without his powers, he was free to stay with the tribe. Feeling betrayed, sure that Ember could have come up with another answer if she had tried, Teir decided to accept the healing and left Howling Rock - but not before giving her a private promise to return someday. He made good on the promise and recently returned to Howling Rock and he now vies with Mender for Ember's affections.
