Cethron Highlord was the Highlord of the Kencyrath on the world before Rathillien.


Cethron was the father of his ill-fated successor, Gerridon, as well as Jamethiel Dream-Weaver, by the Knorth lady Periel.[1] Periel was blood-kin, and their match was arranged by matriarchs, trying to breed the Tyr-ridan.[2]

Later, Cethron had a younger son, Glendar, who took over as Highlord after Gerridon's fall, by Lorien, another Knorth Highborn lady.[1]


Like all lords and matriarchs, Cethron was Shanir with the power to bind Kencyr to him. Since the matriarchs were using Cethron to breed the Tyr-ridan,[2] he was surely a powerful Shanir in other ways as well.

  2. 2.0 2.1 Seeker's Mask, "Part I", V — "Earlier matriarchs had tried to speed that day by mating together potent Shanir. Whether they should have done so, especially within the bounds of blood-kinship, was still hotly debated. One such match had produced those dire twins, Gerridon and Jamethiel Dream-weaver,"
