Willow Swan was a long-haired blond man hailing from Roses and travel companion of Cordy Mather. Swan defected from the military after less than six months in service, then drifted south with Mather until they eventually settled in Taglios, where they set up a bar together. Along the way they discovered Blade, a mysterious militant atheist, about to be eaten by crocodiles; Swan saved Blade who would become a friend and valuable military ally.

Due to Swan's (limited) military experience, the trio were drafted as generals for the First Shadowmaster War by the Radisha Drah.
