Ged is his true name, but they call him Sparrowhawk. In Earthsea, to know a person's true name is to have power over that person, so only those most trusted are allowed to say any but a person's "use name." Sparrowhawk's greatest desire is for knowledge, particularly of magic, and he pursues that heedless of the warnings of everyone around him. When he mistakenly unleashes a malevolent dark power, it is only the creature's true name that stands between Ged and victory.
