A tall, thin, quiet man with a full black beard and gravelly voice, and smokes a pipe often. Along with Beryl Spencer, he does not ride on message runs; instead King Zachary has him placed in the wilds of the North to keep an eye on the border situation; this suits Lynx, as he doesn't like to step foot on any town of size if he doesn't have to, and prefers his longbow and knife and buckskins to Rider saber and green uniform. It is said he is also hady with a throwing axe.

He rides a black and white piebald horse named Owl, and his ability is to sense and interpet animal emotions.
