Jhamed is a very special, perhaps unique, being of the Balance. We are told that his father was a dwarf and his mother an elf but all may not be as it seems. He has a predicted lifespan that may make him immortal. He has devoted his life to the Balance and helping Manfred. However his prime role is as Companion to the Everlasting Hero. He, or one of his many other incarnations, always seems to turn up when the Hero needs him.
