Jump to navigation Jump to search

Shehane Althain was an Ilitharis Paravian who freely dedicated his spirit to become the prime guardian of Althain Tower. His bones form the Tower's foundations and its wards are Shehane's charge for eternity. Elshian used a tine from one of his antlers to create a whistle that can summon help across time and space.

Role in the Story

Spoiler warning: Contains plot elements from multiple books in the series.

Warhost of Vastmark

Third Age 5647: Lirenda attempts to expose the wards around Althain Tower and unwittingly raises a projection of Shehane Althain. He is described as having a powerful torso, broad shoulders, and a mane like a flaxen gossamer. He has a bearded, human face crowned with tined stag antlers.

Stormed Fortress

Third Age 5671: As Seshkrozchiel battles a drake haunt to unmake a grimward, Davien stands at risk of losing his identity. Asandir attempts to anchor him with recollection of a potent memory from Third Age 5129, when a summons at Althain Tower ultimately ended in Davien's discorporate status. Seshkrozchiel rechannels her perception of Shehane Althain's wards and the members of the Fellowship to put a permanent end to the dead drake.

Destiny's Conflict

Third Age 5923: Elaira's desire to read archaic Paravian to learn more about the Ettinmere hostel is answered by Shehane Althain's presence.

Third Age 5925: Arithon's impending execution in Daenfal stresses Athera's electromagnetics enough that Shehane Althain's presence stirs.
