"She was treated most miserably from first to last. But in the end she remembered she was a princess." - Ingrey kin WolfcliffPrincess Fara is the daughter of Lord Stagthorne, the hallow king, and sister of Princes Boleso and Biast. She has been married to earl-ordainer Wencel kin Horseriver for four years but as yet has no children.
Fara is not a beauty but her proud carriage and presence normally make up for any shortfall. She has brown hair and dresses plainly. When Ingrey first meets her, she looks haggard and ill.
Prior to the events of the Hallowed Hunt, Ijada was one of her ladies-in-waiting. Partly out of jealousy, Fara yielded Ijada up to Boleso, knowing the results would be 'unpleasant'. After hearing Fara's testimony in Ijada's trial, Biast appoints Ingrey to be Fara's guardian. Wencel subsequently infests her with a spirit horse, and uses her as his banner-carrier in the rite at Bloodfield. However, Fara breaks the banner pole, causing the hallow kingship to temporarily pass to Ingrey and allowing him to cleanse the souls of those slain at Bloodfield.
