Padrach haMinch (pronounced PAHD-rahk hah-MINCH, like "pinch") was a redheaded trainee with the Queen's Riders in 449 HE. He spoke with a mountain burr that came from growing up in the north of Tortall. During the Siege of Pirate's Swoop, Padrach and another trainee, Elnore, fought on a tower deck with bows. Padrach named one of his two Rider ponies Minchi after his family.
Padrach only appeared in Wild Magic.
