Weedrock is the advisor to Nightshade, leader of the Ebony herd. He is skittish, but manages to keep it under control, and is surprisingly good at stabilising conflict. When Bymeadow, the centaur prince, was a foal, Weedrock was his best friend. He felt the loss of Bymeadow as much as anyone, and would be happy for vengeance. However he is wise enough to know that conflict is not the best way forward, and though he sympathises with Nightshade, he is not sure that they should go to war. Of course it's easier said than done when you are arguing with Nightshade. Weedrock like stability and order - so when Hawthorn joins their ranks Weedrock instantly dislikes him!
