Flynn, temporarily known as the Bearer to the Rune, is a character who was the key to open an ancient tomb in Pamorah that would reveal the secret location of the Stone of Tears.
As Captive in TothrayneEdit
He is first seen as a captive in Tothrayne, a D'Haran death camp. After the arrival of the Seeker and his retinue, Flynn steals the treasure that the D'Harans had collected, in it the abbot's locket. Unassumingly, Flynn opened it and the rune got imprinted on his hand. The Mord-Sith, Cara Mason lured him back to Tothrayne after which he was locked in the warden's office. Flynn got severely stabbed and killed by Eleanor, a young woman who was in truth a Baneling. Fortunately, he was revived by Cara, and embarked on the journey to Pamorah with her, Richard, Kahlan and Zedd.
Journeys with the SeekerEdit
After Kahlan goes into the Con Dar and attempts to kill Cara, Flynn escapes the "carnival act". He is however tricked and nearly has his hand cut off by a man, who turns out to be Zedd in disguise. Flynn learns from this experience.
Flynn travels with Richard and the Mother Confessor to find Annabelle, the last living Confessor besides Kahlan. Unfortunately, Flynn is accidentally confessed by Annabelle and runs off with her, subsequently resulting in Richard being confessed as well. Both are released when Annabelle's powers are drained by Lorcus' quilion, but not before he completes his mission and unlocks the vault using the rune.
Flynn is last seen riding away with Annabelle to Windmore, to stay with a cousin of his.
