When Ki first encountered Vandien she very nearly slit his throat. Yet later it was Vandien who suffered a terrible wound to protect her when terror fell from the skies and who gave her a reason to lay to rest the bitter memories of a once idllyic past. Vandien’s unrepentant recklessness led Ki into situations her sensible nature would have avoided. Yet it was Ki who, despite wizard-troubles of her own, risked the wrath of the Windsingers and saved Ki from his treasure hunt in the submerged temple of the storm-sung sea. And it was Vandien’s stubborn daring which allowed him to attempt to reclaim Ki from beyond the Limbreth Gate - in another world entirely!
