Early Life

To be added.

The Cruel Prince

During Balekin’s coup, Balekin walks two steps towards 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 at the hand of her brother in his bid for the throne of Elfhame.



Balekin and Elowyn are often at odds, due to the fact that they are both trying to be chosen by their father to become the next High King/Queen.

Not much else is known about their relationship, however The Roach does state that Balekin might marry Elowyn, which has happened before among the Gentry. Although Elowyn would most likely stab Balekin before having to marry him.

Dain Greenbriar

Elowyn also has a rocky relationship with Dain, due to the both of them and Balekin being top contenders to take thier father's throne. Dain often sends his spies to spy on Elowyn and gather information.

Jude Duarte

When Jude was eleven, she was spotted hiding under the banquet table at one of the revels by a particularly bored member of the Gentry. He dragged her out by one foot, kicking and squirming. Then he compelled her to drink, and danced her around the hill. She felt dizzy and sick. Princess Elowyn found her at the end of the revel, puking and crying. Elowyn didn’t ask Jude a single thing about how she got that way, just handed her over to Oriana like she was a misplaced jacket.
