Zhaneel was a female gryphon of the gryfalcon type and was the mate of the famed Skandranon Rashkae during and after the Mage Wars.
She is described as being small and lightly built compared to other gryphons, with a deeper keel but narrower chest, long and tapered falcon wings and almost human-like "hands." The toes were long but the talons short, which made it impossible for her to slash like a "normal" gryphon, but allowed her to manipulate objects with surprising dexterity.
Shunned as a youngster for not having parents and being physically different from all other gryphons, Zhaneel suffered greatly from very low self-esteem and depression. Her parents were both killed on a low-risk mission when she was a fledgling, and she was passed through a series of uncaring foster parents. She did manage to pass the rigorous training, but was left with what little self-confidence she had destroyed and a negative attitude towards both her abilities and body image, mostly due to...

Talia grew up a daughter of the Holderkin village Sensholding. She was born on Midsummer's Day, and her mother died in labor. As a girl, Talia was expected to marry and have children. She was taught to be subservient to all men and to the Firstwife. She was frequently punished because she acted out of her prescribed role. In addition, her brother Justus tortured and bullied her on several occasions, giving her a very real fear of men. It was due to her brother Andean that Talia was allowed to learn to read and avoided many harsher punishments. Talia's favorite book was about Herald-Mage Vanyel and his last battle with the Dark Servants in the mountains north of Valdemar. It was due to this story that Talia dreamed about becoming a Herald. Talia also had a sister, Vrisa, who cared for her until she married and became a Firstwife. On the holding, Talia was in charge of all the littles because she was the oldest unmarried child. In addition, she was the only one trusted to deliver impo...
When Talia turned thirteen, her father's wives told her that she was old enough to marry. Talia refused to do so and ran away to her hiding spot to cry. While there, she heard the sound of Companions' bells. She fell out of her hiding spot right in front of the Companion Rolan. As she looked into his eyes, she knew she'd never be lonely again. However, Talia didn't know that she had been Chosen and assumed that Rolan was lost. She decided to return him to the palace herself thinking they would let her be a servant, which was better than marrying someone she didn't love. After several days of traveling, she arrived at the Palace. The first person she met was the Princess Elspeth, who had a tantrum when Talia wouldn't bow to her. Next Talia met Queen Selenay who explained to her what it meant to be Chosen and that she had been Chosen to be Queen's Own. Talia dove right into being a Herald trainee. It wasn't long before she began to be harassed by several of the Blues, however, and due...
Talia's internship was in the North district Sorrows 2, on the northern border of Valdemar. Her mentor was Herald Kris. While on her internship, Talia encountered rumors that she used her gift to manipulate people. These rumors undermined her self-confidence, and her gift went rogue. Talia and Kris realized that Talia had never really been trained how to use her gift, that it was all instinct. While they were snowed in at a waystation for several weeks, Kris retaught Talia how to use her gift with the help of his Companion Tantris and Rolan. After they dug their way out of the waystation, Talia then had to prove to the people of Valdemar that she did not abuse her gift.
When Talia returned to Haven at the end of her internship, she encountered several problems. Lord Orthallen continued to seem very antagonistic to her. In addition, Herald Dirk avoided her because he thought she was in love with his best friend Kris, even though they were in love with each other. She also got into a fight with Kris over his treatment of Dirk and a fight with Elspeth over her irresponsibility. She was able to make up with Kris, and they went on a trip to Hardorn for Queen Selenay to learn about the prince Ancar as a prospective husband for Elspeth. Once they reached the capital, Crown City, however, they realized it was a trap; Ancar had killed his father and usurped the throne. In addition, he was allied with Elspeth's old nurse, Hulda, and was a powerful mage. He intended to take over Valdemar and force Elspeth to marry him. Trying to escape, Kris was killed and Talia captured. She was raped and tortured until she was broken, and then she drank a bottle of argonelt...
