The Earthsea novels



Ged is the true name of a fictional character in Ursula K. LeGuin's Earthsea realm. He is introduced in A Wizard of Earthsea, and plays both main and supporting roles in the subsequent Earthsea novels. In most of the Earthsea books he goes by the Hardic name Sparrowhawk. He was born on the island of Gont, as a son of bronze-smith. Ogion, the island's reclusive wizard, sought him out. Ogion performed a naming ceremony for his passage out of childhood giving him the "true name" of "Ged". After the naming ceremony, Ogion took Ged as a pupil in the wizardly arts. Ged was later appointed as Archmage - the head of the wizard school of Roke.
