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



Physical Description

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.  As for the constellation, it is said that "Because the Stag remains constant - no matter what season, he's always there, so the people of Terrasen will always know how to find there way home.  So they can look up at the sky, no matter where they are, and know Terrasen is forever with them."
