Daughter of the ForestEdit
Padriac is a young boy in his early teens. Before the Lady Oonagh's arrival, Padriac helps animals heal from wounds and keeps them in the barn. He also creates new tools for the family to use. After the Lady Oonagh's arrival, he is furious at Cormack when he injures the dog Linn, and is devastated when all his animals die one by one. During the curse, Sorcha notes that he is the least affected by it, mostly because he enjoys new experiences. After the curse is broken, it is implied that Padriac misses being able to fly but decides to concentrate his efforts on building and learning to sail a boat. Padriac leaves Sevenwaters eventually to explore the world. In 'Twixt Firelight and Water, it is implied that he did so to get away from the memories the place evokes.
Son of the ShadowsEdit
Padriac appears briefly when he comes for Sorcha's death and funeral. He causes a small spectacle by arriving with a parrot on his shoulder with some of his crewmates and a dark-skinned woman named Samara, who may or may not be his sweetheart. The day after the funeral he leaves for Glencarnagh, Seamus Redbeard's home. Padriac does not attend Liam's funeral, because he has already left Glencarnagh and would be unable to arrive at Sevenwaters in time.
After many adventures, Padriac settles in Galicia and has many children. His first wife, Samara, is killed during a sea journey, and they have one daughter, Aisha. Padriac marries twice more, and has five other children. He becomes well respected in Galicia for his tradeships. Fifty years after the end of Daughter of the Forest, Padriac encourages his eldest daughter Aisha to travel to Sevenwaters to meet the Irish branch of the family. He does not go with her, however, because he is content to stay where he is, and he tells her he is 'too old' to travel so far. He wishes her well and tells her that he would like to hear all about her visit when she returns.
Padriac has brown hair and blue eyes.
Padriac is very adventurous. He loves mending animals and creating new tools to use. He is very easy-going and takes things in stride. Out of all of Sorcha's brothers he was the least affected by the curse.
