TOTEH Characters: Lt. Kilos

December 16, 2010

"Kilos of Tusck" by Carol Phillips

KILOS OF TUSCK has been Captain Davage’s best friend and first officer for over thirty years. She has appeared in every League of Elder book so far and is a trusted friend of the House of Blanchefort. Although she claims to hate kids, she is a mentor and caretaker of “Old Dav’s” children and is remarkably kind and patient with them.

She started off as a trouble-prone Marine, consigned to the backwater of the League quelling fights. Kilos was promoted to ship duty aboard the MFV Seeker, where she was to gather information on the captain: Davage, Lord of Blanchefort. Kilos quickly became good friends with the captain, and stayed at his side. She eventually quit the Marines to return home to Tusck, but immediately lamented her decision and returned, only to be inducted into the Stellar Fleet.

Kilos is well-known for her contradictions. She loves being part of a group, yet generally dislikes people she doesn’t know. She loves having friends, yet is extremely difficult to become friends with. She loves her husband, yet enjoys an absentee marriage. And on an on. She still remembers her fist-fights with Sygillis of Blanchefort before they became friends and fondly remarks that “Syg” could really hit for such a tiny squirt.

Kilos’ husband is a professor from the University of Tusck, a man known for his ability to find things out. Kilos often uses him to gather obscure information.

Kilos is also friends with the Elemental Spirit Carahil. He often sends her notes and messages in odd places. He once directed her to visit a place called the Cat God Pub in Blanchefort Village. She went there as asked and found the place was a nexus where anything was possible. Kilos returned to the place, only to find an empty building. Kilos lamented losing the Cat God Pub and looks for it always.
