Farren Nai'Sheviet-osulkedi, also called the Calligrapher, is an Ai-Naidari in his late 40's. He is a member of the Public Servant caste as a public artist and serves Civilization directly under Thirukedi.
Farren is defined most by his appreciation of beauty, his insight into the Ai-Naidari soul, and his work. Ajan noted that he becomes almost "concussed" by observation of beauty.
Farren has his own studio with a slanted desk, a window and chair near it, and calligraphy hung on the walls. There he does most of his work and provides non-commissioned or returned pieces for sale; however, he will travel to the library, festivals, etc. for inspiration and write in his notebook for later painting.
Farren's family lives in the country. When he was young, he became so drawn to the words and arts of other Ai-Naidar that he would make pilgrimages to the capital city's library, where he met the Librarian and began a long and enigmatic relationship with the older Ai-Naidari.
