Handsome Lindolanen, last child of Hessaiu, Baroness of S'geth, met Nadiushka when he was studying to enter the brotherhood of the Setna. He gave up the vocation to court her and they married within a month of meeting.

He called her sunya, his star, and they loved each other greatly, but not even true love could keep the curse of the Camira-Druz at bay. Lindolanen died on a snow-bear hunt barely 3 years after he married, leaving behind one infant son, Nadei, and another as yet unborn, Nazheradei.

Nadiushka ruled without him, and eventually, after many years had passed, was forced to marry Lindolanen's half-brother, Lankomir, to carry on her bloodline.
