A Court of Thorns and Roses Wiki

Thesan is the High Lord of the Dawn Court of Prythian.


Early life[]

Thesan is the son of an unnamed female from Xian, who sought asylum in Dawn along with many others during the Loyalist war on the continent. His mother met the previous High Lord of the Dawn Court, and they fell in love, with his mother bearing Thesan soon after.

When Amarantha began to frequent the Courts of Prythian after the Treaty with the mortals was signed, the Dawn Court was no exception, so the High Lord lost most of his powers and was left at their mercy by being sentenced to live Under the Mountain for forty-nine years until Tamlin found a human who hated the faeries with all her heart but loved him.

A Court of Thorns and Roses[]

The High Lord watches Feyre Archeron's trials.

When Feyre successfully finishes the third trial set by Amarantha, she becomes enraged and tries to kill her by breaking all the bones in her body. When Tamlin is free from the curse thanks to Feyre, all the other Courts are free as well, so when Feyre was dying, as a token of gratitude, Thesan, along with the other High Lords, bestows a piece of magic to heal and Made her a High Fae.[1]

A Court of Wings and Ruin[]

Facing the impending war against Hybern, Rhysand, the High Lord of the Night Court sends letters to all other High Lords, including Thesan, to schedule a meeting.

From the beginning Rhysand counts on Thesan's presence since the relations between the Night Court and the Dawn Court have always been good.

After several comings and goings the High Lords agree to carry out the meeting and the event is in the Dawn Court, the residence of Thesan, since it was the closest place to the Middle. The meeting is attended by the seven High Lords with their delegations and after several discussions and altercations they agree to join forces against Hybern, with the exception of the Autumn Court who leaves after Feyre shows that when they revived her each of the High Lords gave her some of their power unknowingly.

Throughout the meeting Thesan is closely watched by his lover, the Captain of his Guard and the commander of the Dawn Courts Peregryn aerial legion.

Facing with the threat of faebane poison Hybern uses against his enemies he introduces the rest to Nuan, a High Fae who has discovered an antidote for the poison. After doubts from some of the High Lords, Thesan assures them that the antidote works and ensures that supplements of it are sent to each High Lord to be given to the residents of their respective courts.

He participates in the battle that breaks out in the Winter Court, after which they seek him out to cure Azriel's wings, but he is unable to as they are different from the wings of the Peregryn he is used to dealing with and later participates in the final battle in the Mortal Lands of the south of the island.

After Rhysand dies reforging the Cauldron with Feyre, the High Lords give their kernels of power seed to revive him and he explains to Feyre how to conjure it. He later attends the meeting called by Feyre in the ruins of the Archeron's Estate to renegotiate a new Treaty between faeries and mortals.


Thesan is said to glow the brightest among all the High Lords. He is slender, with brown skin and hair kissed with gold, as if sunrise had permanently gilded them. His upswept eyes, the rich brown of freshly tilled fields, are his loveliest feature. Thesan's voice is deep and rich, much like his eyes.

Powers and Abilities[]

  • Healing abilities: Being the High Lord of the Dawn Court, he has the ability to heal others. However, it is currently unknown if he would also have to use the method of giving blood as Feyre does or if he is able to heal in a different manner.
