Aldwyn is a stupid fat belly fish orphan alley cat who gets mistaken as a familiar by a young boy wizard; he pretends he has telekinesis to fit in with the other familiars and ends up going on a dangerous adventure to save his loyal. He later finds out he does in fact have telekinesis.
Early Life Edit
Aldwyn was born in Maidenmere to Corliss of the Windchanter tribe, and Baxley of the Mooncatcher tribe. One day, before he was born, his father went to Malvern, the clan leader, and told him of a vision he had of his son in danger. Baxley refused to let anything harm his son, and left for the Dogwood Temple based on a nursery rhyme he had heard as a kitten. When he returned, he returned with the spheris, an artifact that drew the possessor to the Crown of the Snow Leopard. By that time, Corliss had given birth to Aldwyn and his sister, Yeardley. He said his goodbyes to his children and his mate, and set off towards the north. Baxley was never seen again. Soon afterward, Malvern discovered that Corliss was acting strangely around him. He realized that Corliss had discovered his secret-that he was in alliance to Paksahara, who was planning to take over Vastia and become its ruler. To protect him, Corliss sent Aldwyn on a bed of twigs and leaves to have him wash up in the streets of Bridgetower. During this, Malvern and Corliss fought, and Malvern drowned her. Aldwyn, washing up in Bridgetower as a kitten and believing that he was abandoned, having no recollection of his time in Maidenmere, grew up as an alley at on the streets. He was apparently one of the smartest cats, as he not only trained his four paws but also his tail. When Aldwyn was a kitten, he lost a chunk of his left ear in a fight with an angry cruel bounty dog.
Personality and Traits Edit
Aldwyn is out going and extremely loyal. He would do anything for his Loyal or the other familiars. Aldwyn is a black cat with a white muzzle, green eyes and a White Forearm paw on the right. He has a tear in one of his left ear when his was a kitten. He becomes a familiar later and posses the talent of telekinesis and as found out in a later book telepathy.
Magical Abilities Edit
Aldwyn is a telekinetic cat, which means he can move items with his mind as well as telepathy, which means he can hear people's thoughts. He is also extremely clever and tricked the other familiars into thinking he was magical, when Aldwyn didn't know he was actually telekinetic. He also has the power of telepathy, which was passed on to him by Corliss, his mother. He only found this out when hearing Grimslade, Paksahara, and undead Malvern's thoughts. He was surprised at this discovery.
Aldwyn became Jack's Familiar after Aldwyn jumped into the shop to hide from Grimslade. They relate to each other in terms of not knowing their parents and have a special bond. They one day hope to be Beyonders and explore the unknown lands of the beyond. They also have the loyal and familiar bond.
Trusts her, but when Gilbert has a puddle-vision of her murdering Gilbert, he becomes suspicious. He worries that she will figure out what he is hiding but it ends up she does not murder him but is actually Paksahara in the form of Skylar who tries to murder him.
They are good friends. Aldwyn pretends to hate his poems, but deep down he finds them comforting. He does not like hiding this from his friend.
Malvern was Aldwyn's father's brother, therefore making him his uncle. When Aldwyn went to Maidenmeire the second time Malvern told him his father did not care about him and left him as a baby because, he only cared about treasure. While Aldwyn, Skylar and Gilbert were getting to The Crown, it is revealed that Malvern had been following them throughout their journey. When Aldwyn finds out that his uncle is friends with Paksahara, he tricks Malvern. When they arrive at the stones, Paksahara appears, encountering them as a bird and attacks them, helped by Malvern. In the end, Malvern is killed untimely by one of Paksahara's own spells. In the latest book, Malvern returns as one of the undead, brought back by Paksahara. He nearly drowns Aldwyn, however, Aldwyn saves his life and then he kills Malvern again.
Maidenmere Cats: Edit
At first, Aldwyn and his companions were thrown out of Maidenmere. Once they return much later, they learn he is one of them and welcome him. He is a Mooncatcher, like his father was. He is welcome and helped.
Aldwyn almost gets exterminated by Grimslade throughout his alley cat years. In the third book, they team up for the greater good, however, Grimslade did in fact perish from an undead crocodile. It is noted that Aldwyn feels grief for Grimslade, surprising himself greatly. He disliked Grimslade lots before.
