OKAY. some speculation on Kieran of the Hunt. One, he’s half nixie and a prince of the Unseelie court. Two, CC tells us Kieran has a big role to play in the series. Three, no one knows why he was exiled. Just some politics from behind the scenes. But he is also the youngest and less thought of among his siblings. Why sell him to the hunt, if he was no threat?
Theres been speculation about Anabel Blackthorn too, like how she might not quite be alive but no entirely dead either. And she was brought back by a fey ritual, and according to Malcolm, loved the water. Her family, shamed by her love for a warlock, trapped her in a tomb and condemned her to die.
Sounds pretty similar between the two characters, yes? Both connected to the water, from noble lines, and condemned by their families. Personally, I think this will come into play. I think Kieran’s nixie heritage is one of the main reasons he was sold, and why his role will be huge. Water fey are common folk. I wonder if this is because of their nature? Does having connections to that element make them volatile or something, as Kieran seems pretty emotional for someone from the Unseelie Courts. And Anabel, who may be an undead corpse in an underwater tomb, brought back to life with fey magic? Will she have some new found abilities related to the sea?
I s Kieran’s role connected with this? We know about his mood changing hair as a result of his nixie heritage, but what else? Does he have water magic? Can he create storms? Can he breathe underwater (probably)?
These are the questions that haunt me….
