Keladry of MindelanThe Keladry of Mindelan
Kel, who lived most of her infancy in the Yamani Islands, had to break the prejudice of the Conservative and her colleagues until she was adopted. As she became miner, her chivalrous champion was Raoul von Goldenlake and Malorie's Peak, the king's commander.
As the youngest of Piers von Mindelan and his wife Ilane, Keladry von Mindelan was borne in June 442 HE. At the age of four, her sibling Conal kept her for a few moments above Mindelan's highest lighthouse, which gave her a vertigo that plagued her throughout her infancy and even became a difficulty in her knightly schooling.
That same year the whole Yamani Island extended their stay to the Yamani Island, with the exception of Kel's older brethren, who were already in the castle and had been trained as knights. A Tortallan native politician, Mr Pierer was negotiating a peaceful agreement between the island and his people. When Kel was on the island for six years, she learned her customs and martial arts.
In the Yamani Islands, one of her teenage girlfriends she knew as a cricket was actually a Princess Shinkokami. It was only when the prince was sent to Tortall during Kel's years as a miner to wed the Tortallan crown prince Roald that Kel found out. At 452 U, after her dynasty had come back from the Yamani Islands, Kel resolved to look for her sign.
That was a requirement imposed on her by Wyldon of Cavall, the instructor, who immediately rejected her. On her arrival, some other sites took the same stance as the instructor, like Joren of Stone Mountain, Garvey of Runnerspring, Zahir ibn Alhaz, Quinden of Marti's Hill and Vinson of Genlith.
You tried to intimidate them, even without priority during practice. As Wyldon chose to educate the sides on defense strategies by letting the walls run and choosing how the best would protect them from attacks, Kel's overwhelming agoraphobia took away its rational. Lord Wyldon attached importance to setting Kel assignments to allay and overcome her anxiety (Kel's words), or to be horrible (Neal's words).
The Third Company of the King's Own, a company ordered by Lord Raoul to find the Spidrennest. At the end of the season, Lord Wyldon took everyone by surprise when he permitted Kel to remain and pursue her knightly education. Kel came back to the Palast in the fall of 453 HU to finish the next year of her side workout after spending a few calm, relaxed few month in town with her family.
There were no outlaws, the county commandant had said, but it later became known that he had received payoff. Missing the side trials that would have made her a miner, Duke Turomot of Wellam, the Lord Magistrate, permitted her to resume because of the abduction of Lalasa.
It died and was made a miner. Its deputy, Flyndan Whiteford, was concerned about the possible gossip (i.e. the conclusion that Raoul had selected Kel not because of her skills, but because he had a romantical interest in her) and did not have much confidence in Kel's warriors.
Flyndan commanded Kel, a trick by Lord Raoul to show his irritated deputy that his new minion would do the work. Although it was perilous for her family to find Kel with her child and to keep up with her gryphon was a frustration, she was able to remain with Raoul and her own while Daine tried to find his family.
While Kel was a miner, the Royal Progress took place to show Prince Roald and his prospective bride, Princess Shinkokami of the Yamani Islands, to the population. Since she was permitted to use her neckinata, she became very good at using it in combat situation, as distinct from practice and defence one.
It went back to take its ordeal of chivalry in September 459 U. The name of her boyfriend Neal was the first, her last; this made Kel think that Sakuyo, the Yamani gods of tricksters, had been dancing in this cup. Completing her exams, she was made knighthood that night and became the first female chevalier since Alanna, the lioness, and the first female chevalier in over a hundred years to become a knightholder without hiding her lineage.
During her entire tenure as a miner, she was afraid of the Chamber of Torture, which she finally had to face and whose verdict she had to make in order to become a joust ing warrior. For the first while before becoming Sir Raoul's miner, Kel saw herself as the miner of Gareth the Younger of Naxen, a writing table steed who was not in the fight as if she had not yet been selected by a true warrior.
Her plenary session experiences finally pointed to the post-torture incidents when Kel was a chevalier and headed the Haven asylum centre. Northward, Lord Wyldon Kel gave control of a campsite, Haven, almost on the front line.
On a voyage Kel made to tell Lord Wyldon about the concentration camp at Fort Mastiff, Haven was severely assaulted and would have been burnt down without the magic shelter of the dark magician Numair Salmalín. But Kel was astonished to receive an excuse from Lord Wyldon himself instead, who realized that he had given her an order she could not heed.
He also complimented Lord Wyldon, saying that it was an honour for him to know her and that she was a real chival. It was only seen again when Aly had a premonition of the new Knightess sent to her by the Lord Cypriot. In her third year as a chevalier, Kel was also in charge of New Hope.
In Alanna von Pirate's Swoop and Olau's footprints, Keladry von Mindelan wanted to become a Lady Knight of Tortall. While Alanna wanted to counsel and support Kel, King Jonathan ordered Alanna to keep away from Kel during her education to avoid the Conservative Party blaming Kel for success because she was supported by sorcery.
But Alanna was able to mail Kel impersonally during her education to show off Kel's help and maintain her mood. The first mid-winter as miner to Raoul von Goldenlake, knight commander of the king: brass-fitted binoculars the second mid-winter as miner: Replacement of Hoshi, Kel's replacement for those who serve in the Royal Fourth Mid-winter after successfully passing the knighthood test:
She was a mystery benefactress when she herself supplied a new Raven Armory long blade of Yamani steal, longer than Kel's predecessor, as she had become so much larger in four years. She and Cleon (another miner, also big like her) were proposed to get married and bring up young cubs.
After she had taken care of a baby-griffin in her miner years, she had scarring, especially thin and depressed. When she became Raoul's miner, she no longer wore clothes so often, because she had no point to show for the men of her own, and because it would not have been convenient at all.
When she was a kid, she was educated in the Yamani Islands to conceal her feelings, and she did very well. And the Yamani had also instructed Kel to follow the soldiers' orders. The tallest spire in Mindelan had once been her favourite retreat, but after her twin sister Conal kept her over the rim, she had a vertigo that kept her from coming back.
It became a point of disagreement between her and the Lord Wyldon of Cavall. Their style of combat between Yamani and Tortallan appears several beats in the textbooks, especially during their early study with the Shang champions who were teaching Page-Turblings. The Yamani's previous Yamani practice collided again with her Tortallan bowshooting, where she was trained to fire with a Yamani-Asymmetric Arch before her stay at the Palace (Tortallans like long or smaller rebows).
When she was a full size chevalier, Kel had gained and evolved some remarkable skill sets. Lightning from her commander's breath had been seen in the records before, but they had no opportunity to unfold before their deployment as commanders of a fugitive fortress.
Among other things, other skill sets include: Knight Games (Kel becomes an Experts Jeuster during the Grand Progress), Niaginata (Kel study the Yamani gun known as Niaginata and was highly skilled at it), Math.
It was Ilane who divided her daughter's achievements with several members of the Yamani aristocracy, such as Shinkokami and Haname Nu Ajikuro, who came from one of the oldest tribes on the island. During her miners' years she looked back and forth to Inness and seemed to be on good ground with him.
After a few years she was happy she didn't, for the sparks disappeared when she was made miner after spending a few month with her champion Raoul and her royal own. After a few month she was still a miner and fell in love with Neal's cousin Domitan von Masbolle, Kel began her romatic affair with Cleon of Kennan.
But when they reunited on their way to the north frontier, when Kel was a new baker, they stopped him because Cleon Ermelian of Aminar had to get married so that his tribe would not die of starvation. At the end of Lady Knight she stays untied (although she notices the interest in Domitan by Masbole).
She had a remarkable rapport with Wyldon von Cavall, her instructor during her side-years and later her commanding officer during the Scanran War. In her later years it was as one side when he realized that she might have been well deserved and that she had the orientation of a prospective commanding officer.
Later on, after returning from the deep of Scanra, after saving the Haven tribe of Blayce the Gallan, Wyldon said that it was an honor for him to know her and that she was a real chival. Kel's relationships with her classmates and those who were doing side practice at the same tense with everyone except Nealan from Queenscove, especially as her understanding of the fighting skills made her seem boastful and boastful.
Their hostility with them persisted into their miners' years and beyond, although their quarrel with Joren ended with his deaths. He has always had a great appreciation for Raoul of Goldenlake, the Commander of the King's Own. When he asked her to become his varlet, she agreed and expressed unbelief that he would take her and suspected that he only asked her out of compassion.
In the following years she made a good relationship with Raoul and he became not only her knightly champion, but also my tutor, advisor and friends for her. First the other members of the King's Own declared their incredulity that their commander would take on The Girl, but it soon became respectful and sympathetic.
Domitan von Masbolle was one of her first companions among her own, who, like Raoul, neither underestimated her nor tested her unnecessarily just to show that she was not good enough. It took Whiteford a great deal of persuasion to see that she was up to date and not just to become a chevalier to do so.
