Quentin Sollys is the official squire of October Daye, and son of High King Aethlin Sollys and High Queen Maida Sollys. As such, he is Crown Prince of the Westlands, and one day will succeed his father as High King. He is currently housemate to Toby, her Fetch May Daye, and May's lover Jazz, in a large old house in San Francisco, California. He is in a relationship with the current Count of Goldengreen, Dean Lorden.

Biography / BackgroundEdit

Quentin is a teenage fae courtier and fosterling at the Duchy of Shadowed Hills, and his ostensible liege-lord is its Duke, Sylvester Torquill. Quentin was sent there by his parents to be fostered anonymously (with encouragement from Evening Winterrose) in order to protect him from potential enemies and train him for his future duties as the next High King. Toby and her friends are among the few who know his true identity. Until recently, he resided in Shadowed Hills; but once Toby was given her current house in San Francisco as a reward for heroism, he took up residence there.

Quentin accompanies Toby on her adventures per the Duke's request. At first, he has some negative feelings about Toby's changeling heritage, but ultimately looks up to her with awe. Quentin is essentially Toby's ward if not officially, and her sidekick.[1]

✥ He spends his days at one of the local high schools, learning how the humans live, and spends his nights serving as a page, learning how to be a Faerie noble.[2]
