It’s also important to note that Shey Ohmsford is Wil’s Grand Father in Elfstones of Shannara, and from the novel’s text we find they had a less troubled relationship than in The Shannara Chronicles.

Readers Note 3. in the Sword of Shannara we discover that Flick Ohmsford is depicted as a both skeptical and easily worried character, yet he has deep and unwavering concern for his family, and bravery born of stubborn-persistence.
