Lammer was a starving Arendish serf that Garion ecountered near the ruins of Vo Wacune.

For the promise of food he and his friend Detton joined Ce'Nedra's army. At the Battle of Thull Mardu Lammer was drafted by Ariana to help with the wounded and apparently survived. 

"My lord took our son for a soldier, and he was killed in a battle somewhere. They poured boiling pitch on him. After that my wife stopped eating. It didn't take her long to die."
"I'm sorry," Detton sympathized. "She was very beautiful."
"They're both better off," Lammer declared. "They aren't cold or hungry anymore." -Queen of Sorcery
