During the War, he saw that his son had not only started to rival him for power, but had allied himself with perhaps the two deadliest Illyrians in history. He got it into his head that if they were given a legion in the War, they might very well turn it against him when they returned.
Rhysand's father lived within the Night Court and held the title of High Lord. One day, he winnowed into an Illyrian war-camp and saw a woman whose wings were about to be cut. The mating bond between both of them clicked into place and Rhysand's father immediately made her his bride the same evening. He also made sure that his mate's wings were not cut and allowed her to fly whenever and wherever she wished.
He had two children with his wife, Rhysand and an unnamed daughter.
During the War, he and the Night Court fought on the side of the humans.
When Rhysand became older, he befriended Tamlin, the son of the High Lord of the Spring Court. Rhysand revealed information about his mother and sister to Tamlin who relayed this information to his father and brothers. They traveled to the Illyrian wilderness and murdered both Rhysand's mother and sister.
Rhysand's father learned of his wife's and daughter's deaths, and immediately traveled to the Spring Court with Rhysand. He killed Tamlin's father, brothers, and mother. He then walked to Tamlin's room with the aim of killing him. Rhysand attempted to stop him, but was interrupted by Tamlin who kills Rhysand's father after discovering the bloodshed that occurred in the hallway.
