A man who maintains the grounds around the monastery. He is, literally, a mower of grass and other vegetation. The mower informs Rhys ap Howell and the Earl of Leicester of Edward's whereabouts when the King takes refuge in a monastery. He is also a symbolically important character because of his relationship to plant imagery: if England is a disordered garden, the mower's function is to "prune" it back into shape politically.
