Vernon Lochan was the lord of Perranth, who he became after his brother Cal Lochan was killed and Vernon pledged his allegiance to the King of Adarlan.


When Terrasen's fall began, Cal charged his brother Vernon with Elide's care. Afterwards, the King of Adarlan branded Cal a traitor and had him executed, while Vernon himself pledged his allegiance to Adarlan and subsequently became the Lord of Perranth, usurping the title from his niece, whom he kept locked in a tower for the next ten years.
