Ahn-Lai befriended Windkin and followed him like a puppy. In desperation, Ahn-Lai begged Windkin to help him flee the city, Aramak, and Door. Ahn-Lai’s hero-worship did not extend to all elves, however; he and Jethel were perpetually at odds. After the Forevergreen fire, Ahn-Lai took Jethel prisoner. Later, Ahn-Lai was declared the leader of the port town of Passage. In later life, he changed his name to Ahnn-Li and tried to make Passage a world power by creating a canal across the Forevergreen. Jethel thwarted Ahnn-Li plans again and again. He was recently killed by slipping on a bottle and falling from his balcony.
