Teandelayn, Teondeleyn, Tidogolains

A dwarf who served Helie, the lady-in-waiting of Queen Esmeree the Blonde of Wales.

He accompanied Helie to Arthur’s court to find a champion to remove a curse placed on Esmeree. Helie was furious when Arthur gave her the young, untried Guinglain (Gawain’s son), but Tidogolain encouraged Helie to give him a chance. Tidogolain’s faith was vindicated when Guinglain proved an excellent knight.
