Cadeyrn (young).jpg

Newly awakened in 1304 at The Grove.

I will make you hear me, Mother, like it or not. When I am finished and you are free at last, then I will be first in your heart!

— Cadeyrn

Cadeyrn, born of the Cycle of Noon, was the first of the secondborn sylvari to awaken. In time, as he witnessed the harm of the world and heard the darker emotions of his heart; he would come to see the teachings of Ventari as a shackling weight on the sylvari. Because of this, he established the Nightmare Court with the belief that in darkening the Pale Tree's pool of memories, the sylvari will be free of the Tablet's impositions and finally reach their true potential.


Prideful even as he awakened, Cadeyrn showed signs of having shadows close to his heart. In time he became a capable warrior, but he was one whose versions of logic and justice were different from other sylvari. It was this difference in ideology that would eventually turn his blade against both The Grove and the world.

He was there to witness the aftermath of Malomedies' first bitter contact with the asura, and in battle he saw no hope in mercy. In each occasion, he only saw peace through aggression, and as each turn was stymied, his enmity of the Tablet grew. Despite a supplication to the Pale Tree, Cadeyrn began to see one thing clearly: the sylvari, with hands tied by the Tablet's teachings, would never be whole. With this thought in a jealous heart, he began his campaign to corrupt the Pale Tree, and to unleash the sylvari from false morality.
