Elantia Beauvais has a big role to play in the continuing Saga, but she only really makes her first sizeable contribution to the story in the prologue of the second book, Vagabond.
She is not only a powerful witch and major member of the Cult of Ebon, but she is also a Nachtbeirn, also known as a Nightchild. More will be revealed about these enigmatic beings as the continuing story unfolds in future novels, but it would serve readers well to know that they are not at all what they seem at a glance, nor do they align entirely with the traditional fantasy species from which they are inspired... vampires.
