Along with Mo and a number of other bucks, Rand was sheltering in a cave during a rainstorm shortly after Picket Longtreader and Helmer entered First Warren. At the urging of Mo and one of their companions, he sang "Picket Packslayer" for the two newcomers. He later fled the cave with most of his compatriots after one of the cave denizens was revealed to be the Teller.
Personality and traits
Helmer deduced that Rand was opposed to Winslow Joveson's rule over First Warren, but lacked either the drive or courage to join the Cause. Though apparently a talented singer, Rand was apparently reluctant to perform for others, though he could be coaxed.
Rand is described as "bright-eyed" and has lost a number of teeth.
