Ruatha Shield

Kale was Lord of Ruatha Hold before the Eighth Interval.


He took hold when his father Lord Ashmichel died. He ruled Ruatha Hold alongside his Lady Adessa, with whom he had several children. His youngest child was Lessa, who became Benden's Weyrwoman. He and his family were killed by the usurper Fax when he staged a sunrise raid on Ruatha, a time when the watch-whers are traditionally relieved of duty.

Personality and traits

Lord Kale was a very trusting man, who believed that, as Fax was buying Ruathan runners he would not invade Ruatha. This turned out to be his downfall, when the man he had trusted seized the Hold and slew everyone in it.
