“Then came a fiery bearded, flame-crowned man, dressed all in red and orange, mainly of silk stuff, and he held a sword in his right hand and a glass of wine in his left, and the devil himself danced behind his eyes, as blue as Flora’s, or Eric’s. His chin was slight, but the beard covered it. His sword was inlaid with an elaborate filigree of a golden color. He wore two huge rings on his right hand and one on his left: an emerald, a ruby, and a sapphire, respectively. This, I knew, was Bleys.”

Bleys has shouldered much of the responsibility of defending the newly created Sanctum, personally leading its men against the Seelie courts. As a result Sanctum’s forces are very loyal to him. The Seelie respect and fear his prowess and he has the personal enmity of the Seelie Queen.
