"Terrasen remembers Evalin Ashryver. Do you? I fought at Mistward for your people. Return the gods-damned favor."

–Aelin to Galan

Evalin Galathynius (née Ashryver) was the mother of Aelin, wife of Rhoe Galathynius, and the sister of the King of Wendlyn.


Evalin was born in Wendlyn, and during her visit in Orynth, she met and had fallen in love with Rhoe Galathynius at first sight. They married, and had a daughter, Aelin, whom they both loved very dearly.

Even though Mab, one of the three Fae sister-queens, was her grandmother, Evalin never inherited the ability to shift into animal form the way the Fae can.

She had been assassinated alongside with her husband and his uncle, by having her throat slashed. Their bodies were found covered in blood in their chambers, at their country estate by the river Florine.

Twenty-five years ago, Evalin spent almost a year working in the kitchens with Emrys in Mistward. She became friends with many of the demi-Faes and was a fighter for demi-Fae rights.


Evalin is very kind and friendly. she had become friends with many from Mistward.

Physical description

The princess of Wendlyn was said to be very beautiful, with a svelte but curvy body and bright turquoise eyes with gold-ringed pupils, common for everyone with Ashryver blood.

Some of her characteristics - great wisdom, intelligence, ability to think through difficult situations - were inherited by her daughter. Unlike Aelin, Evalin possessed patience and self-control.
