This page is written in the in-universe perspective of the "Garion" series' of novels.

Chaldan is the god of the Arends, and his totem animal is the bull. Chaldan emphasises pride and militaristic tradition as virtues. For example, sermons at funerals are not concerned with the comforting of the bereaved, but with vengeance. The church of Chaldan challenges Lady Polgara when she takes steps to abolish serfdom

Chaldan does not play a significant role in the stories. Many editions of Seeress of Kell misspell his name in several places as Chamdar, which is actually a very different character.
