Character Role Analysis

Tam Lin

Tam Lin is one cool dude. He's smart, he's a hardcore bodyguard, and he's totally got Matt's back. Tam Lin is probably more responsible than anyone else, besides Celia, for helping Matt grow up into a good, strong person. He could give Obi-Wan Kenobi a run for his money in the awesome mentor department.
