Trent, from Ultima VII
This article is about an NPC in Ultima VII. For the monster in Ultima I, see Trents.
Trent had been a peaceful man, but when Horance's undead killed Rowena while trying to bring her to Horance, he became mad with anger. Hating Horance with his whole heart, he tried at Mordra's orders to finish the Soul Cage, but the fire killed him. However, he didn't even notice that he was now dead, continuing to fruitlessly work on the cage, never making progress because of his hate.
When the Avatar met him in Ultima VII, Trent was very rude while telling the story of how Rowena had been abducted and killed by Horance's creatures. He was unable to be of any help, until the Avatar showed him Rowena's ring. This finally broke the spell of hate, and the relief that Rowena still loved him gave him new hope. With the addition of a metal bar provided by the Avatar, Trent finally finished the cage, contributing to the Liche's destruction.
Later, after the Liche was destroyed, the Avatar returned Rowena to Trent. After their experience, the two lovers never wanted to apart again. So it was unsurprising that he denied the final sacrifice. When the Well of Souls was later destroyed, his soul escaped to the void, finally at peace.
