Taken from the Clan Bear, the Fox is forced into the army of Cadwallon Llawhir to fight for the Men of Gwynedd. Longhand needs Bedwyr’s help to destroy Arthur’s rise to Imperator of Britain, for only Bedwyr knows how Arthur fights and wins. Longhand takes the Fox prisoner in his stronghold; here Bedwyr is forced to marry into the Dynasty of Longhand and White-tooth. Here he is abused and beaten, yet rises above all things to somehow join again with Arthur – now called the Red Ravager, the leader who hammers the Angle, Colgrin, in battle after battle. Away from these battles, the Fox’s journey is no less painful, and the wait is arduous: he waits for the Silurian to come into Gwynedd and tear down the armies of Owen White-tooth, who will kill the Fox if his wishes are not carried out. Longhand, White-tooth and the Fox is where Bedwyr grows into a powerful warrior in his own right.
