High House DarkEdit

Queen/King of High House DarkEdit

Mother Dark was the patron goddess of the Tiste Andii and first Queen of Dark. The title of Queen was later taken by Sandalath Drukorlat when she returned to Kharkanas.

Knight of High House DarkEdit

Lord of Night[3] — considered to be Anomander Rake (until his death). In one of Tattersail's readings, the card was described as having a blurred face, the figure being human from hips upwards with naked jet black skin, heavily muscled, holding black two-handed sword trailing smoky chains aloft. Lower body draconian with black armoured scales paling to grey at the belly.[4] The card had felt ice-cold, loud, full of violence and power to her hands but there had also been a sense of salvation. Her interpretation was that, unpredictable and self-absorbed as he was, the Knight could be enemy or ally.[5]

In this and a subsequent reading something hovered in the inky sky behind the knight. In the second reading, the Knight's sword reached a black, smoky streak towards the Hounds, indicating a future clash between him and High House Shadow.[6]
