Ged's Father

Character Analysis

Ged's father … well, there's not much to say about him. He's a bronze-smith, he doesn't talk much, he occasionally hits Ged, and we don't even know his name (true or otherwise). Maybe the fact that we don't know much about him is why the man's here: he's part of Ged's childhood, but Ged grows up and moves out, and moves on. (Of course, if you live in a world with cell phones, growing up means that you still keep in touch with your parents. They missed out there, though.)
