Chalen, Unseelie Clan: A rather pitiful but powerful creature, Chalen is a Water aligned Fae and a member of the Unseelie clan. His loyalties lie principally with himself, but his disdain for human beings is genuine. Once beautiful like all Fae, Chalen and a group of Rogue Fae joined together in a plot to assassinate the elders of both the Seelie and the Unseelie clan. Many died in the attempt on all three sides, but Chalen emerged relatively unscathed, living on the run for more than a decade. His flight, creative as it was, eventually came to an end as he was tracked down in a rare show of unity between the two superpower clans. Scarred as punishment for his role in that ancient conflict, he accepted disfigurement rather than death. Over the last millennia he has demonstrated some modicum of loyalty to the Unseelie and as the story begins he is, for outward appearances, the caretaker on the Weald. His actual role is much more important, and his inner turmoil brings a volatility to every situation he touches. Never far from the center of conflict, he has a particularly complex relationship with the O’Shea family, and that relationship takes on an entirely new dimension when Maggie arrives in the Weald.
