Ardata


Ardata


Name: Ardata

Race: Elder God

Appearance: 

"A young woman stepped into view from behind one of the pillars. Long hair the colours of dying flames, eyes the hue of beaten gold, dressed in flowing black silks" - (BH, UK Tpb, p.398)

Further Info:  Queen of Spiders


 

"Fifty years, dear rivals, to conquer an entire continent. Oh perhaps Ardatha still held out - always late in sending tribute- but I ignored such petty gestures. She had fled did you know. The bitch." - Kallor - (MoI, UK TPB, pg 14)

 

Cotillion was gazing steadily at her, then he said,  “You’re one of Ardata’s, aren’t you?”

She veered into a mass of spiders. - Cotillion to Mogora - (BH - )

 

“Ardata’s hand in this, I see.  Healed by the Queen of Spiders -- you foster dangerous alliances, Guardian.”  - Spite - (BH)

 

It can be presumed that she is an Elder God by her inclusion in the Errant's summons of all the remaining Elder Gods in Dust of Dreams:

 

"'You say you have summoned the others.  Where are they?'

'Coming,' the Errant replied. 

'How many?'

'Enough.'

Knuckles stared.  'Who defies you?'

. . .

'I am not defied by choice.  Draconus - within Dragnipur it's not likely he hears anything.  Grizzin Farl is, I think, dead.  His corporeal flesh is no more.'  He hesitated, then adding with a scowl, 'Ardata alone has managed to evade me, but she was never of much use anyway, was she?' - (DoD, US MMHB, p. 527)
