Abelaard of Nidus
Abelaard was the only true son of Daeghrefn, Lord of Nidus, and half-brother of Verminaard. Abelaard was Daeghrefn's pride and joy and also a fine warrior. However at a young age, he was mistakenly traded as part of a peace ritual between Nidus and East Borders. Daeghrefn intended on trading the scorned Verminaard, however the mage Cerestes demanded eldest for eldest. Under threat of war, Daeghrefn couldn't back out of the treaty and agreed at the loss of his son. Abelaard was then introduced by Laca, Lord of East Borders, to the Solamnic arts and trained to be a knight. He was raised in the ideals of honor and love, and never returned to Nidus. Years later, Verminaard attacked the province of East Borders and unwittingly blinded his half-brother. In the ensuing battles, Laca and his men were wiped out by Verminaard and Ember, and Abelaard vanished. Abelaard was already gravely injured from his first battle with Verminaard, and without guardians and blinded it is unlikely he survived the turmoil that followed. Abelaard was another victim of his half-brother's rage.

He also became goods friends with Verminaard, however where the former was of good alignment, the latter was of evil. Aglaca later fell in love with the Solamnic lady, Judyth, who worked as a spy for his father. When Verminaard fell under the sway of Takhisis, Aglaca swore to free his brother from evil. With Paladine's aid, Aglaca cast a spell which bound the dragon Ember and freed Verminaard from Takhisis' control.

This was originally to be the second major elven city for the Silvanesti, however kender chose to dwell there also. Balif found an affinity with the kender and allowed them to stay, which caused the resident elves to leave and snub the elven general.

After thousands of losses on both sides, eventually the elves won. Kith had two children with Suzine, Verhanna and Ulvian. However Kith's betrothal to a human, forced a permanent split between himself and his twin. Kith left Silvanesti and many of his army went with him. Kith founded a new nation and named it Qualinesti. The new nation was a far more open nation that welcomed races of all kinds, unlike the more isolationist nation of Silvanesti. During this time of peace, Kith also founded Pax Tharkas, a citadel that was a monument to the peace that was established between the elves, the dwarves and the Ergothians. However, Kith's son Ulvian involved himself in the slave trade and his father was forced to reprimand him. Then Silveran appeared. Silveran was born from the tree that Anaya had become and was technically Kith's first son. Ulvian was driven into a rage and engineered a plot to have Silveran kill his father. Silveran mortally wounded his father, however Kith informed Verhanna and Silveran of who was actually the murderer. Ulvian escaped and Silveran succeeded his father as the new Speaker of the Suns.

In later years she consorted with Robert, the seneschal of Nidus and provided instruction to Aglaca. Aglaca was to be the bearer of the rune, however when he was murdered this prophecy was never fulfilled. L'Indasha was then doomed to guard the rune for all eternity, however Judyth, a young Solamnic lady and lover of Aglaca, witnessed the love between L'Indasha and Robert.

During his twilight years, Sithel went on a hunting trip with Kith-Kanan and a troupe of warriors. Human poachers were in the area at the time, and one mistook Sithel's steed for a deer and accidentally slew the great Speaker.
