Galen is half sidhe and half pixie, though his father was summarily executed for seducing one of the Queen's handmaidens before they realized the seduction resulted in a pregnancy.
The youngest member of the Queen's Ravens and one of the youngest of the sidhe. He is only 70 years older than Merry, and she stated that was like being raised together among the sidhe. He was Merry's first crush and she once hoped her father Essus would choose Galen as her consort. But although Essus liked Galen, he realized the younger man was likable but naive when it comes to court politics. To make him king would be to sign his death warrant.
Unusually among the Ravens, he voluntarily cut his hair, leaving only one thin braid of length.
He was one of the first five Raven's given to Merry by the queen in an effort to get her with child. He was however singled out by Prince Cel for punishment, and nearly had his manhood destroyed by the ravages of the demi-fey. Once healed, however, he joined the ranks of Merry's lovers and helped complete a fertility ritual for Maeve Reed and her husband.
He is continually called 'the green man' by Cel and by King Taranis who see him as the 'green man' of a prophecy once heard by Cel.
Most of his magic doesn't show any outward sign. He is just magically likable.
Glamour - The glamour works by him being pleasant to others which makes them feel calmer and wanting to be pleasant back. It is very powerful from a distance and one touch from him while he is doing this can completely calm a violent situation.
Manifestation - He can manifest into being flowers that are capable of enchanting those around them, rendering them inebriated. "They were reacting like cats to catnip."
Galen received the most faerie dogs out of all the sidhe.
- He has a group pf tall graceful greyhounds that are white with red markings.
- He has a group of small lapdogs that are white with red markings.
He is ambushed and nearly killed by Cel's Crane guard.
Galen touches the black hounds and they transform into faerie greyhounds and lapdogs.
In A Lick of Frost, he is revealed to be one of the fathers of Merry's children.
