Then the High Lord of the Day Court, clad in white and gold, his dark skin gleaming with an inner light

Feyre Archeron, A Court of Thorns and Roses

Helion is one of the seven High Lords of Prythian. Helion rules over the Day Court.


A Court of Thorns and Roses[]

The High Lord watches Feyre's trials and bestows a piece of magic that turns Feyre into an immortal High Fae.

A Court of Wings and Ruin[]

The High Lord is an ally of Rhys. He joins the Night Court and other High Lords in an alliance against the King of Hybern. He was also discovered to be the father of Lucien by Rhysand and Feyre, but father nor son is aware of this.

Helion's power, though unexplained in detail, is a golden-white healing light. Another property of this power is the ability to seamlessly cut through magical wards and enchantments, this ability gave Helion the nickname of Helion Spell-Cleaver.

Being one of the Solar Courts, Helion has a much stronger relationship with Rhysand, the Inner Circle and later, Feyre. He is trusted with information and a glimpse of the Night Court in a very different light than what we have previously been told the other courts know.

Helion regularly engages sexually with Morrigan.

At the High Lords meeting, Rhysand explains that Helion is bisexual and enjoys taking two other fae to bed with him.


The High Lord of the Day Court is a shimmering dark-skinned Fae with onyx hair. He is very muscular and wears a glimmering crown of golden spikes. Sarah J. Maas explicitly describes how his legs are in very good shape also. Moving with languid grace and power, Helion is described as "the sun personified."
