Added DiffLines:

* GenocideFromTheInside: [[spoiler:Although the High Ones are technically not dead, the High One drove all the others into the sea and bound them forever. He is also, debatably, a rare heroic example, in that it appears he crushed the others and forced them into the sea when they started to destroy their own children and it became clear that their war was going to destroy everything if he didn't.]]


Added DiffLines:

* LastOfHisKind: [[spoiler:The High One is actually the last of the Earth-Masters, or at least the last one who wasn't bound in the ocean.]]

The main characters:

* '''Morgon of Hed''': aka [[TheChosenOne The Star-Bearer]]. He is the Prince of Hed and least important of land-rulers. He was born with three stars on his forehead which are the subject of some of the oldest unsolved riddles. Before [[ParentalAbandonment his parents died]] Morgon attended [[WizardingSchool Caithnard]] where he studied riddle mastery. Shortly before the first book he secretly bet his life in a riddle game that hundreds of men have died attempting. He keeps the crown he won [[ModestRoyalty under his bed]] and [[IJustWantToBeNormal just wants]] [[CallToAgriculture to farm]].

* '''Deth''': The High One's harpist and Morgon's closest friend and [[TheObiWan mentor]]. He guides Morgon to Erlenstar Mountain. A riddle.

* '''Raederle of An''': the "second most beautiful woman in the three portions of An", and daughter of the land-ruler of An. She was promised by her father Mathom to the man who would defeat Peven and win his crown. She is the RebelliousPrincess protagonist of the second book, ''Heir of Sea and Fire''.
