Family and ConceptionEdit
Herald Jisa was the daughter of Vanyel and King's Own Herald Shavri. King Randale was publically believed to be her father, but he was unfortunately sterile. The truth of this was hidden by those involved so that Randale would remain available to an alliance marriage. Shavri, who was Lifebonded to Randale, desperately wished for a child, and so Vanyel became a donor. Because of this, and her subsequent marriage to Treven, the rest of the royal line right down to Elspeth and further are all descendants of Vanyel.
It was clear to many that Jisa would follow in her mother's footsteps in being the King's Own. Unfortunately, Jisa's Choosing was put off until her mother's death, as her mother's Grove-Born Companion, Taver, was to become her own and had to wait to choose her.
