Keras the Unknown was one of three candidates for the position of Piper upon the event of the previous Piper's death. Keras' story is told in the Tenna Birdsong Tale titled The Tale of the Pirran Pipe.[1]

History Edit

Keras competed for the position of Piper when the previous Piper died. Keras' music was so mysterious that all who listened were spellbound. After each candidate played the Pirran Pipe, the audience cast a vote. Keras and the other two competitors, Plume the Brave and Auron the Fair, each had an equal number of votes. The three played the Pipe again and again, but the tie remained unbroken. Each candidate's followers refused to vote for another player. Night fell, and after the thirteenth round of votes, a hooded man came forward and urged the three factions to split the Pipe between themselves. Keras received the endpiece of the Pipe and became the leader of a tribe known as the Kerons.[1]

Keras' followers fled to an underground sea when shadows overtook Pirra. They settled on the Isle of Keras.[1]

Abilities Edit

Keras was an exceptionally skilled musician.[1]
