Lord Cael of Ravensdeep is not what he seems.
On the surface, he appears a foolish young nobleman with more coin than sense, inexplicably admitted into the Queen’s retinue. But those few who know him well see him as an insightful, stoic adviser, supplying political support and advice to young Queen Lyrana.
Fewer still know the truth.
Cael of Ravensdeep is an assassin, formerly a Guild Executioner. His prowess in the art of death led to him being made one of the youngest Shades in the Guild’s history, and tales of his masterful slaying led to him being known as a king among killers, the Lord Assassin. Untold dozens died by his hand, only a handful ever seeing him coming. Any doubt he might have had was buried deep within or drowned in alcohol.
Things changed, however, on The Night of the Seven Knives. Sent to assassinate Lyrana, not yet queen, he had a change of heart and turned on his former masters. Seeing in her a chance for redemption, he offered his services to the young lady.
Years later, Cael maintains his place by her side, quietly removing threats to the kingdom under cover of night and hunting his former Shadow-Brothers. If a plate of food is to be poisoned, if a man is to be garroted in a dark alley, if documents are to go missing, one man is to be called upon.
The Lord Assassin will do anything to ensure the safety of his queen and his country, no matter the cost to his soul.
