bride of Kyanos, future Queen of Incus
Merykara is a beautiful human woman. Fair-skinned & with hair as bright as flame, her features are soft & her eyes are a pale olivine. These are the features of the people from Lanx, which is far to the North over the Ferinus (mountains), & she is truly exotic in the land of Incus.
Not much is known of her, & the group left Incus before any gossip could be heard. Bem did catch a glimpe of her at the Dinner of Fortune at the palace, before Bem’s performance on the gilded pedestal. Prince Kyanos announced his marriage to the woman at the dinner, after Bem’s dance.
Nethys had revealed on the way through the tunnels, to Romen & Lostris, that the Queen was furious at the Prince’s new bride & things were going to get very difficult for people very quickly.
