Uilleam’s elven handsomeness is amplified by his fey blood. His shining eyes and long, flowing hair have a lavender hue, and his earth-toned wings resemble a butterfly’s. Like the other Viridian, he dresses in robes of forest green.
Though his voice has an intriguing and mellifluous quality, Uilleam often sounds bored and contemptuous when speaking.
Uilleam Evershade was an anomaly in the Viridian. Not fully fey-blooded, and a sorcerer instead of a wizard, his membership was sponsored by the Viridian’s leader, who passed away shortly after Uilleam joined the cabal.
Uilleam was always jealous of Maloranserani’s unique relationship with the Lady of Mirrors. Haden saw Uilleam collaborating with Alocer’s minions; it’s possible that the half-fey betrayed the Lady. Also, Halfleikr saw him in the company of Jebelat, a malebranche.
He has entrenched himself in Glenloch, where he has imprisoned many villagers, and is attempting to capture all others. His reasons for doing so are unknown.
It seems that no one knew Uilleam as well as they thought. If his heart is treacherous, it seems odd that the Lady of Mirrors, who saw through time, allowed him to betray her. (But then, when do the fey ever truly make sense to mortals?)
Original. The Viridian is my version of the “cabal of faerie wizards” associated with the Isle of Black Trees in The Eternal Boundary.
