For every hero there is the friend who makes it possible for him to succeed. In the Stonebearer’s story one of the most important members of the supporting cast is Bremin.
Bremin is the clever, quick-witted, sharp-tongued friend to our hero, Jarand. They’ve known each other for over three hundred years. He has traveled the world many times over gathering knowledge to aid his fellow Stonebearers. If there is a plot against them, he will uncover it. In his travels he has also become very skilled in healing, picking locks, setting traps, and plenty of other skills, making him an extremely useful fellow to have around.
Bremin does have a weakness, he is very limited in what he can do with his power. This fact has made him very humble, but also bitter. He compensates for his weakness with his knowledge.
Out of all the characters in the book, Bremin was the easiest to find a face for. Jeremy Irons is the perfect fit. He comes across as someone who knows a lot but won’t offer his opinion until it is asked for. He also projects a profound depth to his characters. The fact that he also has played similar characters in several fantasy movies seals the deal.
