Jump to: navigation, search

Korhien Ironglaive is a High Elf and a veteran White Lion. [1]

He is considered one of the finest chess players at the court of the Phoenix King. [1c]

Appearance

A tall, broad Elf wearing the famous cloak, a great axe over his back and a sword at his side. [1a]

History

Korhien claims to have been born in a barn in the mountains, his mother a champion archer and his father a freeholder. [1e]

He is a friend of Arathion, the father of Teclis and Tyrion and an ally of House Emeraldsea at court [1b] although this is mainly due to him being the lover of Malene Emeraldsea‎‎. [1e]

Korhien accompanied Lady Malene when she visited her nephews who were nearly at an age to appear at court. [1] Whilst at Arathion's villa, he gave Tyrion his first lesson in swordplay and discovered that he had a formidable natural talent judging his untrained ability a match for elves with a century of practice! [1d]

Once the twins had arrived in Lothern, Korhien began Tyrions training in the sword, observed initally by his old friend, the scholar Prince Iltharis who when challenged was able to disarm Tyrion in two precise moves. [1f]

Quotes

I have heard too many people talk about glory, doorkeeper, and usually they meant their own. Normally when you hear an elf talking about glory and the spilling of blood, they mean their glory and your blood. I am telling you this, doorkeeper, because I suspect you will turn out like me. I suspect you will end up spilling a lot of your blood and other people's for causes not your own, in places you would rather not be.

~Korhien to Tyrion .[1d]
