Cadfael is an ogre and was previously a Mercadir. He and Ro trained together and were often paired up because of their similar strengths. He is one of the known rebel ogres working with the Neverseen.
In Flashback, it's revealed that Cad, as Ro calls him, is Ro's ex-boyfriend. Ro insists that she wouldn't hesitate to kill Cad for his treason, even if he is her ex-boyfriend.
Cad works with the Neverseen and helps them with their biological concerns. It can be guessed that Cad is working with the Neverseen for power. However, after Flashback it is unknown if he and his team is still affiliated with the Neverseen.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Cadfael is said to be very arrogant and seems convinced that he is an expert on everything. He was always a bragger, and wanted leadership. He was disgusted at the Neverseen for leaving their Umber after her death, saying that he would never do that to his kind.
