Kellanved was originally from Dal Hon and described as a dark-skinned gnarled gnome of a man with curly grey hair. He also exhibited a penchant for wearing grey and black. He was shorter than Dancer.

At the start of the Malazan series, it was known that Kellanved and Dancer had been assassinated by Imperial Regent Laseen, who then took her place on the throne.[1]
