Rowian Yaslana (fc: Summer Glau) is the second child and oldest daughter of Lucivar Yaslana and his wife, Marian. She is the child perhaps most like her father's warrior spirit, and she has never been tamed by anyone or anything. She is a witch who wears the Ebon-gray, not a Lady to be trifled with. Jericho is the eldest son of Chaosti and Gabrielle, a true warrior of the Dea al Mon. He fights against the expectation that his entire life will center around serving as the Consort to a strong Queen, as his father did. He is a Warlord Prince who wears the Red Jewels. Their relationship has always been tumultuous. His people disapprove of his attraction outside of the Territory. Her father wouldn't like any boy she brought home, even if he's had a hand in Jericho's training since he was a boy. Still, their love is one for the ballads.

We lived our lives
In our paradise
As Gods we shaped the world around
We stayed behind
No boundaries is something fragile
They never thought that their love could damage anything at all. They didn't realize that Jericho would lose his position in Dea al Mon, or that the family would come down so hard on them for being reckless. They were children, they didn't understand consequences.
Inside out, upside-down twisting beside myself,
Stop that now, cos you and I were never meant to be
I think you better leave; it's not safe in here,
I feel a weakness coming on.
Alright then (Alright then) I could keep your number for a rainy day,
That's where this ends, no mistakes no misbehaving,
Oh, I was doing so well, can we just be friends,
I feel a weakness coming on.
So Rowian tried to cut things off. She told him to stop coming around, that she wasn't interested. She wanted to protect him as best she could. But she couldn't keep denying him, not when she loved him so much.
Rhiannon rings like a bell through the night
and wouldn't you love to love her?
Takes to the sky like a bird in flight
and who will be her lover?
All your life you've never seen
woman, taken by the wind
Would you stay if she promised you heaven?
Will you ever win?
Eventually Chaosti realizes they aren't going to win this war, so he pulls Jericho aside and tries to reason with his son. Rowian is a vibrant, powerful, enchanting witch... but she is long lived. They will not have the same lifespan. If Jericho can reason with that, then he will have Chaosti's blessing. Jericho doesn't care.
Feel, this now.
The healing starts the motion floods.
Your hope, alone.
You're moving past your home.
So lift, your thoughts.
You're letting go of all you used to know,
And now his blood will flow.
They get back together, and at first it's hesitant because they've both been hurt, but in the end it's like old times. They are beings of passion and fire, the kind of people ballads will be written about.
SET FIRE TO THE THIRD BAR;
Their words mostly noises
Ghosts with just voices
Your words in my memory
Are like music to me
I'm miles from where you are,
I lay down on the cold ground
I, I pray that something picks me up
And sets me down in your warm arms
They are still apart much of the time, and when fighting begins to break out along the border of Dea al Mon, her father and uncle forbid her from going to him. She looks at the maps in her father's study, tracing her finger over the surface, knowing he's out there fighting.
- Are you going to Scarborough Fair?
- Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme;
- Remember me to one who lives there,
- For once he was a true lover of mine.
The war ends, and he's seen terrible things. He can hardly bring himself to contact her, sure that he's done such terrible things that she'll never want to be with him again. So he writes to her, telling her that she can come when the snows melt on the peaks of the Askavi mountains. Before the week is out, she's on his doorstep, angry, and he remembers why he loves her so dearly.
GHOST LOVE SCORE;
Redeem me into childhood
Show me myself without the shell
Like the advent of May
I'll be there when you say
Time to never hold our love
My fall will be for you
My love will be in you
You were the one to cut me
So I'll bleed forever
Slowly they heal. They marry, they find peace with one another. Their love endures.
