Ynen is the son of Navis Haddsson, and brother to Hildy (Hildrida Navissdaughter). The two siblings, miserable in their stifling home and threatened with the very unwelcome marrage plans their uncle Hadd has made for Hildy, run away from home. Hildy has a bit of a temper, while Ynen seems to be the nicest of his family. He loves boats and sailing, and is a real asset to have around when you are running away from home in a boat.
