Fisher King’s Oarsman

Our only identifiable glimpse of this man comes when Percivale sees him rowing the boat from which his master is fishing with hook and line. The boat’s maximum capacity is given as about four men, but the oarsman is the Fisher King’s sole companion. He leaves all the talking to his master.

While I think it likely that the same attendant rows the Rich Fisher every time he goes out fishing, we cannot be absolutely sure of this.
