Okay so there’s this part in ACOMAF where Rhy’s talks about his parents and how they weren’t quite right for each other;“my father and mother, despite being mates, were wrong for each other. My father was cold and calculating, and could be vicious, as he had been trained to be since birth. My mother was soft and fiery and beloved by everyone she met. She hated him after a time—but never stopped being grateful that he had saved her wings, that he allowed her to fly whenever and wherever she wished.“
And that’s sad and all but had anyone considered that they were mates purely for the fact that they produced THE most powerful high lords in Prythian’s history????!?
