Tiergan is an anagram of Granite, both having the same letters.
He does not like being called Sir Tiergan, preferring just Tiergan. During Neverseen, Tiergan is revealed to be Granite, part of the Collective of the Black Swan. Tiergan was one of the most talented Telepaths before Sophie Foster came.
Tiergan is described to have olive skin, shoulder-length pale blond hair, and dark blue eyes. It also states that he has a short ponytail on the back of his head. While his face holds youth, something ancient shines in his eyes. He is described as tall and thin, but a couple of inches shorter than Alden.
The name Tiergan is of Irish origin and it means "strong-willed."
- Wylie Endal (adoptive son)
- Prentice Endal (best friend/ Possible love interest)
Prentice and Tiergan were very close—so close that Tiergan was first in line to adopt Wylie before Wylie's actual family. When Prentice's mind was broken, Tiergan was full of grief and blamed Alden for the incident because Alden was the one who accused Prentice of rebellion.
- Alden Vacker (dislike but eventually respect)
Tiergan has a lot of anger towards Alden, blaming him for the loss of Prentice. He seems to gain more respect for Alden, however, after he finds Sophie. He also is able to get past his own feelings to help the Vacker family with the grief of the loss of Alden when his mind is broken.
- The Elvin Council (dislike)
In Book 4: Neverseen it was revealed that Tiergan works on the Collective under the name Granite with Mr. Forkle and it was suggested that the two could be friends or relatively close seeing how the two are around one another more than their other fellow Collective members.
“You're very kind. But we both know I can never match you.”
“Trust is what gives us the confidence to step outside the safety of our own headspace and enter the darkness of another. What fuels us, guides us, pushes us to keep going, even when all hope feels lost.”
“Leaders must lead.”
Tiergan Andrin Alenfar is a telepathy mentor at Foxfire, adoptive father of Wylie Endal, and a member of the Black Swan under the alias of Granite. He lives at Solreef as mentioned in Unlocked, and is a Telepath, reinforced by his career at Foxfire, mentioned earlier. After his best friend Prentice Endal was subjected to a memory break preformed by Quinlin Sonden and Alden Vacker, he took in the orphaned Wylie as his own, and resented the Vacker family for Alden's role in Prentice's condition. He's interacted with Sophie Foster as both Granite and Sir Tiergan.
