“Kenric had been kind. And funny. And one of Sophie's most loyal supporters. And he'd still be alive if it weren't for her.”
—Narration, in Flashback
““You two certainly know how to give someone a heart attack,” Kenric said, laughing as he nudged Alden. “And I’m pretty sure you made this guy squeal.””
—Kenric, in Everblaze
Kenric Elgar Fathdon was a Telepath on the council, like Councillor Emery. He was romantically interested in Councillor Oralie, but unfortunately, Councillors are not allowed to have a spouse or children. Like Bronte, he often walked around Mysterium with the working class. During the healing of Fintan's mind by Sophie, Fintan called down Everblaze and burned much of Eternalia. Kenric saved Sophie, Fitz, Tiergan, Alden, Terik, and Oralie from the fire only to be killed himself. His tree in the Wandering Woods has red leaves the color of his hair. In Book 4: Neverseen, Oralie gives Sophie Kenric's cache. Sophie suspected that Kenric was her biological father, which was denied by Mr. Forkle in Book 5: Lodestar.
Kenric was built like a football player, had wild red hair, and a large toothy smile. He was also very friendly and one of the most optimistic Councillors.
Kenric and Oralie were close friends and were clearly in love but couldn't act on it because of the rules prohibiting Councillors from having romantic relationships.
