Rides-alone is a mage living in White Gryphon. He was a member of one of the odd tribes that flocked to Urtho's side during the Mage Wars. Under Snowstar's direction, he was part of the group searching for magical traces of Tadrith and Silverblade's equipment when they disappeared in the rain forest on their way to Outpost Five.
When Snowstar had the idea to scry for the absence of magic instead, Rides-alone retrieved Snowstar's shamanic tools, and settled in with the drum. He maintained a steady 'heartbeat' rhythm on the drum, a hypnotic pattern that aided in trance-work.
