When the previous Lord Coman died without a lordan, standard procedure said that his eldest son Demoth become the next lord. However, the Coman didn't think well of Demoth, and chose Korey as their next lord instead. His mother was an Ardeth, and for this reason Adric supported him as candidate for Lord Coman. However, to become Lord Coman, Korey need the Highlord's confirmation. Torisen named Demoth Lord Coman temporarily when they Host matched on the Cataracts, but held off from confirming him fully. During the Battle of the Cataracts, Torisen got a better look at Demoth's abilities, and decided to confirm Korey as Lord Coman.

So, apparently, did most of the elders of Demoth's own family, who supported a younger son named Korey."
