|“||We are always on the run. We've never had a home. Never a perch, from which to look over ourselves. Not a time, by which we pace our work or rest. Not a place, from which we depart and to which we return. We've barely existed, because we’ve never stayed in one place long enough to change it.||„|
Marthus was a male kiri who lived on Hiryth. He led his people in a stand against their age-old foe, the ferrath. He was the ruler of the settlement known as Kirensound. His descendant Lyone was responsible for halting the curse that turned the kiri into the halfling and threatened to drive them to extinction.
