Duncan Idaho

Idaho, that worthy name
from back and fore in time,
shone brightest during Leto's reign,
the hero in his prime.

Round of face and dark of eye,
with curling black goat hair,
a rogue with smile exceeding wry
and gifted with the fair.

Disciple of the Ginaz school,
with sword unparalleled,
victorious in every duel,
all honor and pride upheld.

In life a hard and ruthless man,
though moral to a fault;
In death his fame the ages span
for deeds the bards exalt.
