Physical appearance


Tancred is a very temperamental person and because of his endowment has a hard time hiding his emotions. Winds often follow him everywhere and make his cloak billow to different degrees; depending on how angry or upset he is, his hair also crackles with energy.

He has arachnophobia (fear of spiders), and in the fourth book when he was under Joshua Tilpin's "magnetism" spell, Olivia Vertigo used her newly discovered endowment to make Tancred see spiders, snapping him out of the spell.


A descendant of the Red King's sixth child, Petrello, who had the power to control the oceans and the weather. Tancred is a storm-bringer (weather-monger), and can bring rain, lightning, snow, and even wind, depending on his mood. 


His best friend is Lysander Sage. He also has a crush on Emma Tolly, although he has had a previous girlfriend, and at the end of the eight book Emma and Tancred are holding hands, suggesting that they are dating. 

Tancred is distantly related to Dagbert Endless, as they are both descended from the Red King's son, Petrello. Dagbert is initially excited to meet Tancred, due to their similar endowments, but these feelings later sour when Tancred forces him to stop his drowning of Charlie Bone and Billy Raven. Dagbert later exacts his revenge on Tancred by trapping and then drowning him, although his body is recovered by Emma Tolly and brought back to life by The Flames.
