“Apologize to your mother. And stop making a scene!”

—Quan, in Book 5: Lodestar

Quan Song is the father of Tam Song and Linh Song. He is Mai Song's husband. He first appears in Book 5: Lodestar, when he attends Exillium in the Ambi Hemisphere.


Quan is described to have jet-black hair and silvery eyes, like his children, but no silver-tipped bangs.

Unlike Tam and Linh, he wears the Song family crest-- two silver-and-black dire wolves craning their necks in a graceful howl.


It is clear that Quan loves his wife Mai very much, from the way he reaches for her, cradles her hand and angrily tells Tam to apologize to Mai when Tam jerked free of her hold.

He puts a huge emphasis on appearances. He does not want his reputation to be tarnished by his children, as they are twins, and so he tries to hide the truth from the public, is afraid of making a scene in public and feels ashamed of Tam when he draws unwanted attention. He also shows disapproval of Tam's silver bangs.

He firmly believes in children respecting their parents.


Its clear that he loves her very much.

Doesn't like the fact that he is a twin and is harsh and disrespectful to him which makes him rude back to him.

Doesn't like the fact that she is a twin and is harsh but nicer to Linh than her brother because Tam is disrespectful and rude towards them and she isn't really.
