Rank

Swan Knight

Captain

Master of Records (until 2976)

Successor

Tarondor

Illian is a Swan Knight. He served as Master of Records under Prince Adrahil.


CareerEdit

In his capacity as Master of Records, Illian oversaw the courtly and other non-martial education of the esquires. His primary duty as instructor was teaching tactics and strategy, and he worked with tutors, both military and otherwise, to see that esquires were taught the languages they were required to learn.


He was one of the officers involved in trying to handle the aftermath of the attack of several esquires on one of their own, Andrahar. When, in 2976, Andrahar returned to Dol Amroth and took up duties as a junior instructor in Haradric, Illian assigned him to assist Master Harthil. He did not, to his later chagrin, keep a close enough watch on the relationship between Harthil and Andrahar, and after Harthil apparently assisted several esquires in trying to discredit Andrahar, Illian offered his resignation to the Prince.

MetaEdit

Illian first appeared in chapter three of Kin-Strife. Later, he became a secondary character in Reconciliation. The first obstacle to writing him a more substantial role was deciding what position he occupied, and then what the duties of a "Master of Records" might actually be.
