Lord Brennus is a Briton and has accumulated a large army that threatens to bring war back to England. He sends out soldiers to find Wistan, who is a notorious Saxon warrior searching for Querig so that he can kill her. Wistan argues that Lord Brennus has found a dragon tamer and is going to find and tame Querig to use her for his own benefit when he goes to war, presumably against the Saxons. Lord Brennus is not very well-liked by any of the characters, even those who are Britons.
