|Other Family||Ozorne Muhassin Tasikhe (unlce) (deceased)|
He was very good friends with Lindhall and didn't agree with the methods that his uncle used. Often saying things that he shouldn't and thus endangering himself of being et rid of by Ozorne, like his former heir. He didn't have extravagant tastes like his uncle and after he became the emperor he dressed plainly.
Kaddar was not the Emperor Mage's only heir throughout his uncle's reign. His uncle's disposition and willingness to go to extremes to get rid of opponents instilled a very strong paranoia and fear in Kaddar and his mother. Once he was made heir—after the last one died of "unknown circumstances"—Fazia decked him out in protective jewels and magics. Of course, this could be standard for an heir in a volatile country such as Carthak, however, he did treat his uncle with a certain amount of a paranoia during Daine's stay.
When the young wildmage came to Carthak with the Peace Delegation of Tortall, Kaddar was shocked at first when she jumped into a crocodile pool to save a marmoset. He informed her of his assignment: to show her the great city and around the many beautiful palaces. At first, Kaddar was aloof, and behaved just as a prince should when greeting a foreign emissary, however, as time wore on and they got more used to each other, he grew more comfortable. Daine did put him in his place, many times, with shooting, and magic, and they developed a good friendship during the girl's stay. Kaddar ascended the throne when his uncle turned into a Stormwing, effectively forfeiting his Human monarch status. Before leaving, Daine urged Kaddar to think about his slaves, and to free them if he could.
Marriage to Princess Kalasin of Conté
It is unknown when exactly the marriage took place, but as royal marriages take years to arrange, negotiations probably started when Kalasin was still quite young. Currently, they have had one child together, Binur Iliniat, whom they adore. As empress, Kalasin has founded schools, and concerns herself with the affairs of the poor—something that quite annoys and instills disapproval in Kaddar's mother, Fazia.
Kaddar had his dark skin from his father, whose tan was also darker than Fazia's.
Personality and traits
He has a regal manner, showing in the way he treats Daine when she first arrives. Once he gets comfortable, however, he tends to act more like a regular teenager: speaking his mind, etc. He is cautious of what he says in earshot of his uncle, but sometimes he tends to be a bit careless about it.
Skills and abilities
Kaddar had a small Gift. He was said to work particularly well with plants and went to the Carthaki University. He helped grow many of the plants in Lindhall Reed's animal habitats.

His mother was Princess Fazia Ilinat, Emperor Ozorne's sister. This made the Emperor Mage himself Kaddar's uncle. There's not very much known, about Kaddar's father. He was a prince of the Chelogu province in Zallara, and died in 446 HE putting down a rebellion in Siraj.
