Kanton
Status: Dead
Race: Human
Gender: Male

Kanton was the leader of a Human clan. He and Sorril, the Elven daughter of Kiernion, eloped without Kiernion's approval, sparking a five-year war between the Humans and the Elves. Towards the end of the war, Kanton was killed by Rivyn, Morganae's son, the man Sorril was supposed to marry. Kanton had a right hip short sword named Glisinais that Sorril used to slay Rivyn. The twins Lanival and Sable are the children of Kanton and Sorril.

These dates are based off of the timeline provided by GM Atrathien in 1998, which differs a bit from the timeline provided by GM Cadaya in 2001. According to the latter, the Elven-Human War lasted twelve years instead of five.


GM Evike's Office Door

In the Foyer of the office of GM Evike:

Made of two solid pieces of rich copperleaf wood, each panel has been carved in exquisite detail. The left door depicts representations of Keloryon and Celestidhl standing together over Elanthia spreading their arms wide as if giving their blessing to the planet. The carving on the left door takes a more sinister turn, showing in great detail Sorril stabbing Rivyn in the heart with Kanton's sword, Glisinais.
