Glam is the romantic/friendship pairing of Tam Song and Glimmer. This ship mainly develops in Legacy and Tam's Short Story. After Tam joins the Neverseen, Glimmer attempts to befriend him but he refuses. In Legacy, she follows in Tam's step after he chose to betray the Neverseen at the end. She ends up freeing Tam from the bonds she placed on him. Glimmer takes the offer to live with Tam and his sister Linh. Glimmer still refuses to share her real identity.
