Former duchess of Shale, and the King's sister.
The king’s sister, Duchess Ethelyn was a commoner before earning her title in the Third Yerasol War. She dislikes industry and leads a coalition of powerful individuals with strong ties to the Unseen Court. She wears extravagant diamond cluster earrings – representing the stars of the night sky – to show her allegiance to the old ways. Accounts tell of her possessing many different types of magic, though many of these could be exaggerated.
After the events of Chapter 1, the Duchess is now stripped of her title and most of her magical powers, and is currently imprisoned in the Bridge Tower in Slate.
