Esp. Relation(son/daughter/father/brother of XX and XX) + profession(ie. king or prince of Qual/Silv)
The more important elves like Porthios, Gilthas etc. will do. I haven't read in a long time, and its so confusing. I feel kinda lost here. thx.

Dalamar the Dark - originially of House Servitor in Silvanesti (I believe)
Kerian's full name is Kerianesey
|#5frostdawnFeb 24, 2004 15:22:18||And of course, Tanis is the half nephew of Solostaran. (his mother was Solostaran's sister)|
Samar is another character of note pre and post War of Souls- he is the personal bodyguard of Alhana Starbreeze who secretly loves her. Silvanesti

No, that's not right.
Tanis was the son of Solostaran's sister-in-law. So...you could call him a Step-nephew, I guess.

Otherwise Tanis and Laurana's relationship would have been really messed up.
|#8quentingeorgeFeb 25, 2004 0:02:17||IIRC Tanis' mother was Elansa, who was married to Solostaran's brother Kethrenan. Tanis father was named Brand.|

Looks like we are missing the last brother Arelas.
The oldest: Solostaran
The older : Kethrenan (many years younger than Solostaran)
The younger: Arelas (few years younger than Kethrenan)
|#12Charles_PhippsFeb 29, 2004 14:49:46||I don't particularly like the story being retconned, on the other hand I actually do like the fact that all of Tanis Half-Elves self-loathing is entirely unjustified.|
His 'poor poor mother' was just an adulteress
|#13iltharanosFeb 29, 2004 23:47:23||Hmm, were Kethrenan and Elansa married? or merely bethrothed? I can't recall.|
|#14Charles_PhippsMar 01, 2004 2:37:02||Otherwise there's no reason for Solostran to take Tanis in. |
Or are Tanis and Lauranthos Cousins?
