Ren Allsbrook is a Terrasenite and a member of the former court of Orynth. He is the heir of Allsbrook, but had to flee with his grandfather when Adarlan invaded. His parents and sisters were executed during the invasion. He and his grandfather are part of a rebel movement in Rifthold.


Crown of Midnight

Ren makes his first appearance in Crown of Midnight, although his identity is not revealed until much later on. Ren and his grandfather, Murtaugh Allsbrook are part of Terrasen's rebel group in Rifthold, and they worked with Nehemia before she was assassinated by Grave.

Ren and his rebels are part of the group that capture Chaol Westfall and hold him hostage in a warehouse in order to get Celaena's attention. Celaena and Ren even fight the rescue and Murtaugh himself begs her to stop the carnage. However, at this point, neither of them realizes who the other is and Ren doesn't realize she is actually his queen until he meets her in Empire of Storms.

Heir of Fire

Aedion reunites with Ren and Murtaugh when he arrives in Rifthold. They continue to be members of the rebel movement in the capital and they are present when Chaol reveals to Aedion that Aelin is still alive.

Ren and Murtaugh continue to work with Aedion against the King of Adarlan and after Ren is injured by the king's guard, Chaol invites them to stay in Aelin's warehouse apartment.

After Aelin kills General Narrok in Wendlyn, Murtaugh sets off to alert his allies and Terrasen that their queen is returning. Ren stays in Rifthold until Chaol tells him to go to Terrasen, deeming it unsafe for him to remain in the city while the King is targeting those with magic in their blood.

He does not meet Aelin at all throughout Heir of Fire, and Aedion even refuses to tell him of her secret identity, Celaena Sardothien.

Empire of Storms

Ren meets Aelin in person for the first time in ten years. Ren has come from Orynth with Lord Darrow and his grandfather to meet with Aelin and discuss plans for Terrasen's future. When Darrow tells Aelin that she will not be recognized as the rightful Queen of Terrasen, Murtaugh is shocked, so it can be assumed Ren was also unaware that this would be happening.

As Aelin and Aedion are planning to leave for Ilium, Lysandra talks to Ren and Murtaugh and asks them to take Evangeline to Orynth with them, so she will be safe. They agree and when Ren notices the scars on Evangeline's face, so similar to those on his own, he softens a bit.

He makes it clear however, that he's not completely on Aelin's side and he does not yet forgive her for abandoning Terrasen during the last ten years. Aelin understands his aversion and distrust and does not hold it against him.

Aedion tells Ren and Murtaugh to get the Bane ready to push from the North, against Darrow's orders, but after Aelin, Aedion, and Lysandra leave, they are not seen again.
