A young colony world.


A tawny ball streaked in aquamarine and cobalt blue and swaddled in sullen gray clouds. [1] At the time when Reese arrived seeking trade goods in the Earthrise, they did not yet have a station or Well repeater (though they did have weather satellites).


Kerayle has been established five years when the Earthrise visits. They've had Fleet visitors (which is how Reese heard of the place and its alcohol) but no merchant crews. The single settlement has somewhere between a dozen (Reese's estimate) and 30 buildings (the Kesh's figure). One of them is a state-of-the-art genetics facility. "We have made ourselves the stewards of all of Earth's most ancient breeds" of horses. "We came here to be nomads, to follow the herds. The deal was that we'd have one town and we'd take turns living in it, doing the work. But when we got here, there was an... argument. About the division of labor." Half the colony defected. They took off for the hills and started stealing the horses. [1]

The colony is led by the Kesh. The defectors were led by the Rekesh. [1]


  • Horses
  • Alcohol: kumiss and arkhi

Characters Who Made Their Appearance on Kerayle

  • The Kesh, Shamil: human male, olivine skin, tanned dark but still lighter than Reese. Eyes are hazel, greenish in the light. Doesn't know about Eldritch (thinks Hirianthial is an albino). Like many of his fellow colonists, he's not fond of the Alliance's company, which is why they left for such a remote location.
  • Ra'aila, Clan Flait: Aera, teal-blue eyes.
  • Saul Ferry
  • The Rekesh, Jaram. Not a nice guy. Now deceased.
  • The Rekesh's wife: human, chestnut-colored curls, hazel eyes rimmed in dark gray, set wide in a strong face with a narrow chin. [1]
