As a boy, Cale crept out from the slums of Kelthara. He’s a rogue and vagabond thief with a good heart. Has a glib tongue and adores Ariane who adopts him as a stray. Later, he becomes more or less respectable and takes part in the war against Caswallon. After the Happening, adult Cale serves the new High King as Captain of Guard at Car Carranis.
