The Daqan knight Sir Caras vehemently opposed war with the Latari during the Runewars as his lover, Lana, was Latari. However, his efforts were resisted by Baron Zachareth and his allies in the Council of Thirteen who distrusted the elves. After the treacherous massacre of Summersong, there was nothing Sir Caras could do. In one last attempt of reconciliation Sir Caras made sure he was at Bilehall when Torvic was captured. He brought the vampiric viscount to Lana to show her the truth of what had occurred at Summersong, but it was too late. She had her duty to her people and he had his.
