History

Midnight for Charlie Bone

Charlie Bone and the Time Twister

Tancred spends the majority of the story stuck in his home, unable to bring his temper and his storm under control. However, one night he encounters the tree that is the Red King, who calms him down and helps him gain control of his endowment. The very next day Tancred returns to school and the next weekend helps Charlie and the rest of his friends rescue Henry Yewbeam from the Bloors.

Tancred becomes distant from his friends, as he has become infatuated with Tracey Morsell, who he is dating now. Tracey Morsell is very beautiful but not a nice person, but Tancred is too pulled in by her attractiveness to realise this. One day, he is with Tracey when he learns that Charlie is in trouble. Tracey threatens to break up with him if he goes to rescue Charlie, which finally makes him see what a nasty person she is. Tancred finds Charlie and rescues him from Joshua and the Branko twins, and feels foolish and guilty for being so taken in by Tracey that he abandoned his friends.

Physical appearance

Personality

Tancred is a very temperamental person and because of his endowment has a hard time hiding his emotions. Winds often follow him everywhere and make his cloak billow to different degrees; depending on how angry or upset he is, his hair also crackles with energy.

He has arachnophobia (fear of spiders), and in the fourth book when he was under Joshua Tilpin's "magnetism" spell, Olivia Vertigo used her newly discovered endowment to make Tancred see spiders, snapping him out of the spell.

Abilities

A descendant of the Red King's sixth child, Petrello, who had the power to control the oceans and the weather. Tancred is a storm-bringer (weather-monger), and can bring rain, lightning, snow, and even wind, depending on his mood. 


Relationships

His best friend is Lysander Sage. He also has a crush on Emma Tolly, although he has had a previous girlfriend, and at the end of the eight book Emma and Tancred are holding hands, suggesting that they are dating. 

Tancred is distantly related to Dagbert Endless, as they are both descended from the Red King's son, Petrello. Dagbert is initially excited to meet Tancred, due to their similar endowments, but these feelings later sour when Tancred forces him to stop his drowning of Charlie Bone and Billy Raven. Dagbert later exacts his revenge on Tancred by trapping and then drowning him, although his body is recovered by Emma Tolly and brought back to life by The Flames.

Ancestry

Tancred is a descendant of the Red King's sixth child, Petrello, who had the power to control the oceans and the weather.
