Prazek Goul, spelled Prazek Gowl in some editions,[1] was a Tiste Andii, and had once been Orfantal's swordmaster. He was one of Korlat's companions.[2]

In The Crippled God[edit | edit source]

Prazek Goul and Dathenar Fandoris accompanied Nimander, Korlat, and the Tiste Andii of Black Coral to Kharkanas. Prazek, Korlat and Dathenar where all that remained of Anomander Rake's cadre of Soletaken dragons.[3] They resisted Silanah's call to join her Storm of dragons to help Nimander instead.[4]

In Forge of Darkness[edit | edit source]

A Tiste called Prazek, presumably Prazek Goul, was a lieutenant of the House Purake Houseblades. His constant companion was another man named Dathenar.

In Fall of Light[edit | edit source]

After abandoning their post guarding the bridge leading into the Citadel of Kharkanas, Prazek along with Dathenar was - by express orders of Silchas Ruin - found by Captain Kellaras and recommissioned to take temporary command of the fallen Hust Legion. Their time among the Legion, now bolstered by criminals plucked from mining camps, proved to be both a reawakening and a test of faith.

Speculations[edit | edit source]

It is likely that the name Dathenar Gowl which appears in the Dramatis Personae of The Crippled God is a conflation of the two names of Dathenar Fandoris and Prazek Goul. The name does not appear in that form anywhere else. The appendix does list the other two following each other, and does not mention any Dathenar Gowl, however, Prazek Goul is named Prazek Gowl in the appendix of some editions. Thus it is highly likely that the DP entry is based on a mistake made during the publishing process.

Given that Tiste by the name of Dathenar and Prazek are each others constant companions in The Crippled God as well as the Kharkanas Trilogy and that their relationship is a similar one in both, it has to be assumed that they are meant to be the same people. It is unclear as to whether the gender change of Dathenar was a continuity mistake or intentionally included by the author.
