This is and I’m as heck but here I go.
So in the original Sandwen ways, a Half is a rider or flyer that lost their said companion. If the Half is a rider then they are shunned by their friends and family. They are said to be bad luck and they hold little to no respect among clan mates. If the Half is a flyer then the Kahlara is sent to the ruck, never to be paired with again. We all know this by now (unless you haven’t started on ROTR). But what if a crown princess looses her pegasus to an illnesses, manga spiders, etc. ? Would she not be allowed to rule? And what if a queen’s chosen ride dies? What happens then?
