Aylinn (fostered by Herrel and Gillan)

         

Kethan (fostered by Heroise and Ursilla)

-In The Warding of Witch World Aylinn is paired with Firdun of the House of Gryphon while Kethan is paired with Uta, a woman trapped in cat-form (implied to be a shapeshifter by the geneology of that book).

 


Footnotes:
1. The brother of Lady Eldris, gave Clan Right back to Eldris after her affair with Hyron, fell in the Battle of Thos.
2. Died of fever after Thaney's birth.
3. Who (or what…!) Ursilla brought to Heroise's bed to be the father of Aylinn is never mentioned and remains a mystery. One could speculate it might be Jakata the evil mage with steel coloured eyeballs from The Warding of Witch World considering Ursilla's connection with Garth Howell but there is no evidence either way.
