A Sergeant under Lady Devona in the Light Lancers, Herne fled from ignoble beginnings in the depths of the Breonnese forests. Born to Jeselle, a woman who had been captured by bandits, Herne watched helplessly for years as his mother took kicks, jeers, and worse to protect him. She could not hold out forever, and slid into death's embrace at last when he was sixteen. The thirst for vengeance consumed Herne, and the night he escaped from the encampment he swore he would return. And so he did, years later, at the head of a column of Ivy Crown Knights.
The Sergeant is a man of cold passion, and his hatred for bandits, raiders and bullies knows no bounds. Luckily, there are more of those than can be counted in Taltos. Herne is often sent far from Denelspire by Devona or Jehanne, for he excels at field work and hates idleness. If such work also enables him to mercilessly hunt the jackals who prey on the Taltain, then surely that is all to the better, and his reputation now is such that the sight of his stag-emblazoned shield sends his adversaries fleeing before him in terror.
