Anasûrimbor Kayûtas is the first son and eldest child of Kellhus and Esmenet, and General of the Kidruhil. He was named after Anasûrimbor Nau-Cayûti[1].


Kayûtas closely resembles his father, Kellhus[2]. He is tall and slender[2], and has blond hair[3], blue eyes[4] and a long face[2]. His hair is cropped very short, revealing the contours of his skull[2] (however, by the time the Great Ordeal reaches Agongorea, it has grown enough to be described as "flowing")[5]. He has a plaited beard[3].


What Came Before Edit

Kayûtas was born in Shimeh, close enough to Moënghus's birth that the two were raised as fraternal twins[6].

The Judging EyeEdit

Kayûtas rides with his father's Great Ordeal, leading the Kidruhil[7].

The White-Luck WarriorEdit

At the Eleventh Council of Potentates, Anasûrimbor Kellhus declares the breaking of the Great Ordeal, and Kayûtas is given command of the Men of the Middle North[8].
