Bonds of Blood and Honor
Hobb is Lady Celia’s second child, and her first by Lord Ondrew. Hobb has proven a quick study in the martial arts. He trains hard every day, and has learned a great deal from Thedric, whom he holds in high esteem.
Although he doesn’t understand it, Hobb accepts his younger brother Blane’s preference to old maps and heavy books rather than spending time in the practice yard.
