Two-thirds of the People fell that night, Highborn and Kendar. "Rise up, Highlord of the Kencyrath," said the Arrin-ken to Glendar. "Your brother has forfeited all. Flee, man, flee, and we will follow." And so he fled, Cloak, Knife and Book abandoning, into the new world. Barriers he raised, and his people consecrated them.

Glendar Highlord was the Highlord who lead the Kencyrath to Rathillien after the Fall.


Glendar was the son of Cethron Highlord by his consort Lorien.[1] He was younger than his half-siblings Gerridon and Jamethiel Dream-Weaver. In "Hearts of Woven Shadow", Ganth recounts how Glendar, as the younger son in the family, had been overlooked and seen as useless until Gerridon fell.[2]

When Gerridon fell, the Arrin-ken declared Highlord, and urged him to flee. Glendar led the Kencyrath to Rathillien.[3]


The Highlords and their lordan are sometimes called Glendar's heirs,[4][5] the Knorth tracing their line from him.

  2. Blood and Ivory: A Tapestry, "Hearts of Woven Shadow" — " 'Rise up, High lord of the Kencyrath,' the Arrin-ken had said to Gerridon's younger brother on that terrible night—Glendar, whom his family had counted as worthless, who had been taught to think of himself as little better."
  3. Seeker's Mask, "Part III: The Riverland", VI — " 'But the first time the God-voice spoke was on this world, just after the Fall. The Arrin-ken had made Glendar Highlord in place of his brother Gerridon, Master of Knorth.' "
  4. Honor's Paradox, "Chapter I: Songs in the Night", I — "Moreover, there sat Glendar’s heir, the Knorth Lordan,"
  5. God Stalk, Book II: Crown of Nights, "Chapter 8: Voices of the Past" — " 'Ganth of Knorth? […] Who was he, anyway?' 'Why, Glendar's heir, Highlord of the Kencyrath.' "
