My prince sought a weapon, Loaten. If you know how he died or what he found then I need to know.


Gevalden, nicknamed Gevin, is a prince of the Kingdom of Elis on the Darkside of Taldain and the former fiancé of Khrissalla. He is currently known as the Lord Beggar Nilto, the unofficial Taisha of the beggars of Lossand.[1]


Gevalden was the second son of the king of Elis, and was betrothed to the Duchess Khrissalla in an important political arrangement before his untimely death.[3] Gevalden journeyed to Dayside in search of the mythical sand mages, who are reputed by Darksider children's stories to hold many magical powers.[3] Khriss believed that he sought to recruit or use the sand mages as a weapon to undermine the Dynasty.[4]

News of Gevin's death prompted his fiancée to organize her own journey to Dayside in search of the sand mages and the truth behind Gevalden's death.[3] After arriving in Kezare, Khriss met with Loaten who informed her that, Gevalden reached Kezare as well but gave up on his original goal before he died. Loaten was reluctant to share more details with Khrissalla, but implicated the Dynasty.[2] Khriss supposed that Gevin must also have met with the Lossandin Taishin during his time in Kezare.[5] Upon her discovery of the sand masters, she assumed that he must have found the Diem as well and petitioned them for help, though Kenton has no records of such a meeting.[6] Upon her first encounter with Nilto, the Lord Beggar gave her Gevalden's pistol and ring, but refused to explain why they were in his possession.[7]



While their engagement was arranged for political reasons, Gevalden's pet name for her, Khriss, suggests the prince held personal affection for the duchess.[3] Khriss's own grief over her fiancé's death suggests that she returned the sentiment.[8]


Gevalden associated with Loaten after reaching Kezare, and the two apparently became friends to some degree, as evidenced by Loaten's use of the prince's nickname, Gevin.
