Aelin and The Lord of the North by Salome Totladze
Commissioned for @itsafangirlfantasy
The Lord of the North
Male | Dryad
Loyal to Terrasen
Lives in Oakwald Forest
Born in Rifthold
Appears as a huge stag with flaming antlers and a glow around him.
Not much is known about The Lord of the North. The people of Terrasen believe he is loyal to Terrasen, as he blessed Brannon Galathynius when he first arrived in Terrasen, believing he would be a good king. He has only been seen twice - when he blessed Brannon, and when he allowed Aelin to ride him into the battle at Orynth - which makes people assume he doesn't like humans, as they are destructive. He hates the Valg much more, though, as they destroy everything.
Before the Books
The Assassin's Blade
He is mentioned a couple of times in The Assassin's Blade. Not him physically, but the constellation that depicts him. Whenever Celaena looked to it, she thought of Terrasen. She points it out to Ansel when they are in the Red Desert, and Ansel can tell by the way she speaks of Terrasen, that that is where she is from.
