Tom Rahl was a secret protector of the Lord Rahl who used the cover of travelling with his brothers selling wine to remain close to Lord Rahl at all times. He later fell in love with his master's sister, Jennsen Rahl, with whom he would choose to live with in the world without magic created by Richard. Their descendant, Alexander Rahl was the first to learn of the world with magic and helped the Cain opposition.
He first met Jennsen when she tried to find her goat and horses. He offered her some wine and tried to be of some assistance when she was in distress. He told her he couldn't help her more than the wine at that time though. He later drives to Jennsen when she is on the Azirith plains and offers her food, water, wine, and a ride. She welcomes the offer and they go to Althea's swamp together. He helps her get back to the People's Palace after she gets out of the swamp. He helps her get to where Sebastian is located and then continues to go on his way. He reappears at the Pillars of Creation (place) with betty and his trusty wagon. It is here that it is revealed he is a protecter of Lord Rahl and that Cara knows who he is. He helps Richard, Kahlan, Cara, and Jennsen by giving them a ride out of the Pillars of Creation (place).
Personality and traits Edit
He was a tall strong man with blonde hair and blue eyes. He seemed to be a very timid person though he was kind as well. He was skilled with weaponry and had very good aim as he could throw a dagger across the pillars of creation (place) and hit a mark dead on. He is very deadly too as he joked with Jenssen that he wouldn't have let her touch Lord Rahl if he thought she was a danger to him.
