In the BooksEdit
After Loddlaen's dweomer war, he is sent into political exile by his half-brother Rhys. During his wanderings, Rhodry is captured and sold as a slave in the Bardekian islands. When Rhys is mortally wounded, Rhodry is recalled from exile to take his brother's place as the Gwerbret of Aberwyn. When his true lineage is in danger of being discovered, Rhodry fakes his own death, and begins living among the Westfolk.
A rose ring handed down from his elven father (he again got it from the Guardian Evandar) gives Rhodry the true name of the dragon Arzosah. On his way to find her, he encounters Otho’s aged mother Othara, who renames him “Rori.” Compelled by the power of her true name, Arzosah assisted Rhodry in the defense of Cengarn. They become friends, and he gives her the ring at the end of Days of Air and Darkness, freeing her.
Rhodry undergoes a physical transformation as Evandar strives to save his life from Raena's stabbing (at the cost of his own existence as a Guardian, enabling him to finally be born into the world of mortals) and turns into a dragon. In this form, he uses the name that Othara gave him.
He is featured in nearly all of the Deverry books: Daggerspell, Darkspell, The Bristling Wood, The Dragon Revenant, A Time of Exile, A Time of Omens, Days of Blood and Fire, Days of Air and Darkness, The Gold Falcon, The Spirit Stone, The Shadow Isle, and The Silver Mage. Including his past-life incarnations, he is featured in all of the books.
