Ryadd Eleis yt

Ryadd as Dragon, Interpretation by Corporal Nobbs

Rud Elalle, was a half human, half Tiste Soletaken Eleint and a son of Menandore and Udinaas. 'Rud' meant Found, in the Meckros trader tongue. For his first seven weeks, he grew up on a Meckros city with Araq Elalle, until it was destroyed by the Crippled God. He was saved by Menandore and was from then on raised by Bentract Imass in the Refugium. He was growing at a preternatural rate.[1]

As an Eleint, he was described as, "seeming to blaze with some unquenchable fire beneath its gilt scales".[2]

In Midnight TidesEdit

Rud met Udinaas and Feather Witch. Udinaas realised that he was Rud's father but did not tell the boy.[3]

In Dust of DreamsEdit

Silchas appeared in the Refugium and offered to help train Rud Elalle. Ruin explained to Udinaas that his son could easily destroy himself unless he learned to control his Eleint nature. Rud Elalle then left his father and the Imass to be taught by Silchas Ruin.[4]

Silchas Ruin explained to Rud that his true name was Ryadd Eleis, the Tiste Andii words for Hands of Fire.[5]
