The Fall refers to the betrayal of the Kencyrath around three thousand years before the time of the novels by the Highlord of the time, Gerridon, the Master of Knorth. Gerridon offered his soul and those of his followers to Perimal Darkling in exchange for his immortality. He ordered his twin sister and consort, Jamethiel Dream-Weaver, to use the Senetha to reap the souls of his people, and she did, not truly understanding what he asked of her or why. His close associates he took with him into Perimal Darkling; otherwise, two-thirds of the Kencyr fell that day, and only a small remnant fled to the next threshold world, Rathillien.
