Hayden Fire Dancer is one of the many supporting characters in the series and is Han Alister's best friend. He is of mixed blood - clan and wizard - a union that was not thought possible since wizards were forbidden by the Naeming to enter the camps. His mother is Willo Watersong, and his father is Gavan Bayer, which makes him the older half-brother to the Bayer twins, Micah and Fiona, as well as cousin to the Mander brothers. Gavan Bayar , as a young wizard, had taken advantage of Willo Watersong in the forests of the camps. Dancer was born soon after. It became apparent that Dancer had inherited his father's gifts, when he was a child. Willo tried to conceal her son gifts, but it was ultimately decided that she would tell the other members of Marisa Pines Camp, as well as the members of Demonai Camp, on Dancer's name day. Dancer subsequently went to Oden’s Ford with Han Alister to study at Mystwerk House. Dancer is currently romanticly involved with Cat Tyburn.
Fire Dancer is a male with an angular bone structure and heavy dark brows, with jarring blue eyes set into a bronzed face. He has commented that the resemblance to his father is very striking if one knows where to look for it. Crow , an enemy of the Bayars recognizes him as a Bayar even in Aediion , whether through some magical means, or physical characteristics.
