Silanah vs Raest by shadaan

'Silanah vs Raest' Interpretation by Shadaan

Silanah Redwings was an Eleint, or dragon, who travelled with the Tiste Andii in Moon's Spawn and was a companion to Anomander Rake.[1]

She had red pebbled skin, iridescent scales, a ridged back, and glowing, multi-faceted eyes.[2][3]

History Edit

According to Clip, their history of Anomander Rake told them that Silanah emerged alongside Rake after he had gone into Kurald Emurlahn after its sundering, when he and Kilmandaros had fashioned an alliance and sealed Emurlahn's gate.[4]

In Gardens of the Moon Edit

When the Malazan Empire freed the Jaghut Tyrant Raest from his barrow to challenge Anomander Rake, the Son of Darkness asked Silanah to help delay the Tyrant's march on Darujhistan. She was supported by four Tiste Andii Soletaken in the form of black dragons.[5] Silanah was badly injured by Raest in the process, but he spared her life.[6]

In Memories of IceEdit

Anomander Rake and Caladan Brood allied with renegade Malazan High Fist Dujek Onearm to battle the Pannion Domin. As the allied armies made their way east towards Capustan, Rake left Brood's camp, telling Korlat he felt the need for Silanah's comfort. He said he would return in a short while.[7]

Later, after the Pannion Domin's defeat at the Battle of Black Coral, the Soletaken Eleint Orfantal mentioned that Silanah was in the air above the battlefield.[8] She likely had been aboard Moon's Spawn as it lay in wait below the waters of Ortnal's Cut before the battle.

In Midnight TidesEdit

Udinaas and Feather Witch accidentally travelled to the Refugium where they met the Imass, Ulshun Pral, and the boy, Rud Elalle. Ulshan Pral spoke of a Hold the two Letherii had never heard of called Starvald Demelain. In an attempt to explain, he listed the names of many of its notable denizens including Silanah. He finished by calling them "Eleint. Draconean. Dragons. The Pure Dragons."[9]

In The BonehuntersEdit

The imprisoned Eleint, Eloth, claimed that Silanah had been seduced to the side of the Soletaken Eleint against her own kind by the charms of Anomandaris.[10]

In Toll the Hounds Edit

Black Coral became the home of the Tiste Andii after the destruction of Moon's Spawn. Silanah kept watch over the city from atop the New Palace.
