Mirrors aren't to your liking anymore, are they? We remember when they were, but that was millennia ago. Since then, you say, you have become immortal. […] But they warp you, Keral, body and soul, more and more each time. Even now you can no longer hold any true shape.
– Immalai, Dark of the Moon, "Chapter 1: Fire and Ice"
Jame once calls him "the Master's favorite pet," and Ganth calls him Gerridon's "faithful dog". Keral himself claims that Gerridon values him, though Immalai doesn't believe this is true.
Keral is known for his cruality. During the Fall, he burnt out the eyes of Arrin-ken with coals. He tormented Jame during her time in the Master's House. She had kept the broken-off hind leg of a wooden cat figurine that Winter had carved for her and Torisen, and when Keral saw her with it, he burnt it. He also threatened to feed her to Iron-jaw, a haunt. He always said Tirandys was a spoilsport for teaching her how to fight back.

↑Dark of the Moon, "Chapter 1: Fire and Ice" — " 'So I'm the fool, am I, for having chosen the winning side and won immortality? You could rot for all your precious god cares, but I tell you my lord values me, as the Darkness does him, and both will avenge me!' […] as for your master, we suspect that he too will be glad to see the last of you. Look at yourself, Keral."
↑To Ride a Rathorn, "Chapter XIV: To Ride a Rathorn", I — "On the hearth, in the Master's hall, the changer Keral burned out my eyes."

↑To Ride a Rathorn, "Chapter IX: School Days", II — "It had been her father's warhorse Iron-jaw, the one that had turned into a haunt. The changer Keral had threatened to feed her to it."
↑Dark of the Moon, "Chapter 1: Fire and Ice" — " 'Just like old times, eh? I always said Tirandys was a spoilsport for teaching you how to fight back.' "
