Lord Bastion Winalils [wɪn.ə.lɪlz] is a wright, a doctor and a member of the Black Tongues. He is a Jet of noble birth but was disowned by his family. "Bastion grew up out in the country and was being groomed to take over the facility for his father, but he absconded to Cresce to join the Black Tongues." This is when he learned Continental. At some point he went to Sharteshane. Winalils then hired Nary Frummagem to have Sette take Duane back to Alderode through Cresce. He gave her the blood-filled amulet necklace that can command Duane at night. He also supplied the spell that keeps Elan's heart beating.
Timofey is Lord Winalils' loyal ghost servant and reconnoiter.
A lovely illustration of Bastion.
