Ketil is a pure Vanir, the mother of Keta and nest-mother to Ilse.



Ketil has been described to be a gray or rosy pink gryfess.


Ketil has a tendancy to be very ornery and judgmental. As shown when she often argues with Brynja, although she does respect the Aesir huntress. She loves her two daughters and wingsister, and adores her pride.


Ketil is the mother of Keta and the nest-mother of Ilse.


In The Summer King Chronicles ArcEdit

A Shard of SunEdit

Ketil, after Frar, is the second gryfon to flock to Rashard's beacon. She introduces herself and her two daughters.

Trivia Edit

  • Ketil could possibly come from "Kjellfrid", which means "beautiful kettle".
  • She wanted Rashard to mate with her daughter Keta.
    • This is considered a bit hypocritical, as she doesn't want Brynja (an Aesir) to be queen, yet her (nest)daughter is an Aesir.
    • However, she accepted Brynja as her queen, and thus no longer wants Keta to mate with him.

A Shard of Sun QuotesEdit

Ketil: Does this mean the conquerors are overthrown?

Rashard: The conquerors... the tyranny of the Red Kings has ended. But their prince, Kjorn, is my wingbrother, and I hope we will have peace with them from now on.
