** Aram **

Aram picks up the sword after his mother is killed outside Emond's Field. His sword has a "straight blade; the hilt had a brass wolfhead for a pommel." <TSR: 45, 734, The Tinker's Sword> The hilt is leather-wrapped, and long enough to be used two-handed, which he does.<TSR: 45, 732, The Tinker's Sword; 56, 930, Goldeneyes> The straight blade makes it more likely to be a Western-style two-handed sword, heavy and long, unlike Tam's sword, which resembles a Japanese katana.

Aram wears the sword strapped to his back, with the "Wolf-head pommeled sword hilt jutting above his shoulder." <ACoS: 1, 65, High Chasaline; also CoT 25, 565, When to Wear Jewels>

Aram's clothes scream; his coats (in various colours) are typically striped. Virulent yellow breeches and a putrid green cloak are also mentioned; none of these are mentioned more than once, so presumably he varies his wardrobe. <LoC: 45, 564, A Bitter Thought; CoT: 25, 565, When to Wear Jewels; etc.> Aram dies in a red-striped coat. <KoD: 30, 649, Outside The Gates>
