Nothing is known of Gwanar's childhood, though as he lived through the most traumatic part of post-Roman Britain he was likely an orphan who joined a war-band at fifteen.
Gwanar managed to get a war-band together in the wake of the great raid, but on meeting up with the charismatic Uthr he happily accepted being an underling to him. That faith in Uthr had eroded somewhat when, in 476, he allowed Ecgweald to ambush and assassinate his lord. Meeting Uthr's son, Arthur, a short time later he gave the boy some items to survive in his escape in order to assuage his guilt.
Gwanar was a good-hearted person who was weak-willed. His disillusionment with Uthr only made him easier to manipulate.
