–Rhy, A Darker Shade of Magic

Prince Rhy Maresh is the biological son of King Maxim and Queen Emira. He is celebrating his twentieth birthday in ADSOM. He is known to be something of a partier and a flirt. He also considers Kell to be his best friend.



He has curly black hair and amber eyes with tanned skin that Kell compares to polished wood. He is also said to look sturdy and strong.
