The Wicked King
Snapdragon was recruited for the Court of Shadows because of their ability to transform into other creatures. They were employed by one of the royal family members to work as a spy and help them win the throne. All of Eldred’s children, excluding Cardan and Balekin, were slaughtered during the coronation of Prince Dain, which left all royal spies to join the Court of Shadows.
