[F]irst came the Exiles, who had disappeared with Ganth into the Haunted Lands and paid for their loyalty with their lives. Of them, only Torisen, his sister and, it was rumored, a priest had survived—
Torisen's narration, To Ride a Rathorn,
"Chapter VIII: A Forgotten Name", II

The Exiles were those Knorth who went with Ganth into exile in the Keep in the far north and who died there, except for Ganth's exile-born children Jame and Tori.[1][2] Ishtier, the priest, fled as well, along with Ganth's Kendar mistress, Bane's mother, to Tai-tastigon.


  1. God Stalk, Book II: Crown of Nights, "Chapter 8: Voices of the Past" — " 'You see, when the Gray Lord rode into exile, it was for the Eastern Lands that he was bound. But the report is that he died crossing the Ebonbane. Most of his people turned back then. A few went on, however, passing Tai-tastigon in the dark of the moon and were never heard of again—until now. Those must have been your people.' "
