Character profile for Chronicler from The Name of the Wind (The Kingkiller Chronicle, #1) (page 1)
It is a weariness shared by others connected to the book as well. The author is sick of being asked about it, the publisher is sick of being asked about it, and readers are sick of asking booksellers about it. The way I decided to approach this was to pull together a list of possible causes, and then ask someone who would know for sure if any of them were true. Bast: Would you like to have me test that theory out on yourself? Kenny: Umm. Absolutely not.
May 15, PM. Who is Chronicler? Now that seems a straightforward question, but the reason I ask is this: his gilder can't be real. Every line in this book has a purpose. Every children's rhyme, every song, every story

Note: my current plan is to post two of these a week. I can't guarantee that will always happen though, as my medical issues leave me unable to work on things without warning and I want to keep a stock of pre-written posts as a buffer. I'm going to skip over most of the rest of The Name of The Wind's first chapter, since it consists of Kvothe and Bast trading dialogue like this "Reshi" is Bast's name for Kvothe--he has a lot of names, it's kind of his thing :. The gist of it--apart from Bast being a horndog--is that Kvothe is worried about the demonic spider called a Scrael and what it could mean, as the local townspeople are utterly unprepared for the larger incursion that he fears is on its way. Before we start on chapter two, here's what Kvothe did with the corpse of the Scrael from last time:.
After being attacked and robbed by former soldiers on the road, Devan is saved from creatures named Scrael by Kote. He wakes up at The Waystone Inn , and after a short conversation, finds out his savior is none other than Kvothe. Chronicler then convinces Kvothe to allow him to write his life story. During the interludes, we find out that it was actually Bast who brought the Chronicler to the Inn by spreading rumors of his location. Bast hopes that having Kvothe tell his story will remind him of his true identity. Bast threatens Chronicler several times, saying that he should help Kvothe focus on the fun and adventure in his past, otherwise will rip his heart out. It is speculated that Chronicler is possibly one of Master Lorren 's gillers.
The Kingkiller Chronicle is a fantasy series by Patrick Rothfuss , which recounts the story of Kvothe, an adventurer and musician. The plot is divided into two different timelines: the present, in which Kvothe tells the story of his life to Devan Lochees known as Chronicler in the Waystone Inn, and Kvothe's past, which makes up the majority of the first two books. The present-day interludes are in third person from the perspective of multiple characters, while the story of Kvothe's life is told entirely in the first person from his own perspective. The series also contains many metafictional stories-within-stories from varying perspectives, most of which are recounted by Kvothe, having been heard from other characters in his past. The first two novels in the trilogy, The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man's Fear , were released in and respectively; Patrick Rothfuss has said that the third book in the main sequence will be the end of this particular arc in the story. The series is framed as the transcription of the three-day-long oral autobiography of Kvothe, a renowned musician, scholar, and adventurer now living anonymously as a rural innkeeper, with each day depicted in a separate book.
