Among the pages at the Tortallan Royal Palace each new page had a sponsor, who was an older boy who could show the new page around and tell him or her about the custom and his or her duties as a page. The sponsor helped the new page as long as it took the new page to become familiar with the palace and his or her duties.[1] The custom already existed when Alanna of Trebond was a page at the palace around 430 HE, and was still known in Keladry of Mindelan's time about twenty years later.
