"Another camp inspection? Your dog," He jerked his chin at Cassian, "was here just the other week. The girls are training"

–Devlon, A Court of Mist and Fury

Devlon is one of the Illyrian war-lords who resides in the Night Court. He rules over the Windhaven Camp in the Illyrian mountains. About five hundred years ago, Rhysand, Cassian, and Azriel were part of his war-band during their younger years.


Of all the Illyrian war-lords, Devlon hates the High Lord and Cassian the least. When the Illyrian Legion is mobilized, Devlon serves as commander of all the war-bands. He was the fairest towards other warriors as he gave Rhysand, Cassian, and Azriel ("a half-breed and two bastards") a shot at the Blood Rite.[1] However, he saw women as beings meant to be servants. While he did not clip their wings anymore, he fought any attempt by Rhysand to force him to let the women to train with the war-band if they wished. He would state the girls had chores to do before he let them train, though Rhysand would say they would train first and do chores later.

A Court of Silver Flames[]

When Cassian brings Nesta to Windhaven to train, they are met by Devlon. Upon hearing that Nesta will be touching their weapons, he tells Cassian that they must be buried afterwards. He also tells them that if Nesta is on her period, she will not be allowed to touch the weapon at all. Cassian is angry at this and tells Devlon that these are outdated superstitions and that Nesta can touch any weapons that she wants.

Physical Appearance[]

Devlon is a tall, stocky, broad-shouldered older male. Like all other Illyrians, he has wings.
