It’s said he can make anything from metal, even living things—metal birds that fly, metal snakes that slither and strike. He made the twin swords, Heartseeker and Heartsworn, one that never misses and the other that can cut through anything. As he made the swords for the Alderking, he was exiled with him.

Justin Duarte sought him out to learn his secrets and show him a blade he had crafted.

The Wicked King= Grimsen arrives at the Palace of Elfhame to ask King Cardan to lift his exile and allow him to return to the High Court. He tells Cardan that if he does so he will be loyal to him. Cardan agrees only for …

Grima Mog used to be the general for the Court of Teeth, but was dismissed and left to live in the Mortal Realm.


When Jude Duarte was hired to get Grima Mog to stop eating other Folk in the human world, Grima Mog recognized Jude as Madoc's human foster daughter. Jude threatened to burn Grima Mog's cap if she didn't vow to stop killing humans and faeries while she resided in the mortal world, to which Grima Mog countered with a duel. Jude agreed to those terms and later won the duel.

Which made her stand out no matter how she fared, which is a calculated risk. When she does well, the audience cannot fail to notice. Valerian knocks Fand to the dirt during the tournament.


Fand is now a knight in the High Court, something she has always wanted to be. She escorts Jude to the throne room where a battalion from the Undersea has arrived. She appreciates that Jude remembers her and later when Jude offers her the p…

But while in Faerieland, she began to find it tedious to have to do without everything from the human realm. She grew homesick, so she and Lady Asha used to sneak to the mortal realm. Eva would bring back little things that she missed, such as bars of waxy chocolate, perfume, and pantyhose.

She later escaped to the mortal world with Justin Duarte, bearing Madoc's child Vivienne with them. She left a woman and an infant's burnt remains to hide her escape. However, she was tracked down by Madoc seven years after Jude and Taryn's birth. She tri…

During Balekin’s unsuccessful coup, Balekin walks towards Princess Elowyn and thrusts out his arm. He doesn’t even look in the direction of Elowyn as his blade pierces Elowyn’s throat.

For a moment, the wound is just a blotch against her skin, and then blood pours out. She staggered forwards, and goes to her hands and knees. Gold fabric and glittering gems drown in scarlet.

Taniot then crouches over Elowyn’s body, and tried to stem the tide of blood with the skirts of her dress. However, despite her efforts, Elowyn dies.

After many years of ruling Elfhame, Eldred decided to abdicate the throne due to the fact that he had lost his taste for bloodshed and was seeking the Land of Promise. He allowed those under his banners to rebel in small and large ways, even as other Courts refused to submit to the High Court.

During the coronation ceremony to make Prince Dain the new High King, his eldest son Prince Balekin staged a coup for the throne with the support of Madoc. Eldred refused to change his choice, which prompted Balekin to kill his sister Princess Elowyn out of spite while Madoc killed Dain. Despite being powerless to stop his son, as he had given his magic away when he abdicated and ha…

The Court of Shadows is believed to have been created by him for the sole purpose of exploiting his brother Balekin's ambitions to overtake the throne. Dain believed that he was the most loved and respected amongst his siblings in the eyes of his father.


After the Summer Tournament, Dain visited Jude at Madoc's estate. He expressed an interest in her ability to lie and asked her to be a spy for him as a member of his Court of Shadows. In exchange, Dain put a geas on her that protects her from all fae…

Dain had an affair with one of his father’s consorts, Liriope, who became pregnant. The unborn child's prophecy was "If the child is born, Dain will never become king." Wanting to maintain power, Dain sent one of his spies, the Ghost, to poison Liriope with blusher mushroom in an attempt to kill both her and the child. Dain believed the child to be dead, but Oriana responded to Liriope's plea of aid to save the baby and raised him as her own, naming him Oak.

Cardan was deemed to be a harbinger of ill-luck after his birth by the Royal Astrologer, Baphen.

Cardan's mother, Lady Asha, found children to be irritating, and thus neglects Cardan. In an enchanted globe Jude finds on Eldred's desk, she sees Cardan as a very small child. He's dressed in a shirt that's too large and hangs down like a gown. He is barefoot and his feet and shirt are streaked with mud. He wears dangling hoops in his ears, as though an adult gave him their earrings. Jude sees him try to get his mother's attention, only to be rebuffed. He storms off and picks a fight with an older boy. At the sound of the shuffle, Asha turns and laughs, clearly delighted by his escapade. This m…

It was clear that Caelia, like her other sisters, didn't care for her youngest brother Cardan and thus took no chances to risk her father's wrath by standing up for him.

When Balekin stages his coup, he demands someone of the Greenbriar line to crown him High King. Caelia stepped forward, dropping the knife she was holding. She was dressed in a stomacher of gold and a skirt of blue, a circlet of berries in her loose hair. She offers to crown him in order to stop the bloodshed.

Caelia was about to crown Balekin High King when The Ghost shot a bolt from the shadows of the rafters. It struck her in the chest. Her eyes went wide, her hands fl…

Lady Asha was not born into the gentry of the Folk. High King Eldred never made her a consort, even after she had Cardan with him. Lady Asha was entranced by palace life, besotted with the High King, and gloried in the dancing, singing, and wine. She was a disruptive force and craved admiration. She wanted experiences, sensations, triumphs, and things that required conflict and enemies.


At some point, she befriended Eva Duarte, who was the mother of her future daughter in law, Jude Duarte, and the two used to sneak to the human realm because Eva missed human things.

She knew Cardan's hatred for her was almost equal to her hatred for him and their feud lead to constant skirmishes against each other.


In her mission infiltrating Hollow Hall on behalf of Prince Dain, Jude witnessed Cardan being tortured and beaten by his brother Balekin and Jude began to pity him a little. Sometimes, Jude grudgingly remarked upon Cardan's beauty and every once in a blue …
