Kinsbaile was the largest kithkin clachan at Lorwyn.[1] The town was led by the cenn Gaddock Teeg, and its champion and protector was the Hero of Kinsbaile, archer Brigid Baeli.

History[edit | edit source]

Kinsbaile served as a place for annual aurora celebration, where various being from whole Lorwyn gathered to share their tales together. The presence of treefolk sage Colfenor contributed to the fact that Kinsbaile became a focal point for the Gilt Leaf elves, who hunted Colfenor's former pupil and daen of Gilt Leaf hunters, Rhys. The Gilt Leaf under the leadership of taercenn Nath and daen Gryffid occupied Kinsbaile and waited for the traitor, with long-term plans to punish the kithkin for hiding Rhys and build a permanent elvish outpost there.

In the end, Kinsbaile was spared the elvish wrath, when Nath was killed by Rhys and the rest left to pursue him. Several buildings suffered fire damage, when the rekindling of the flamekin Ashling caused Colfenor to burn.

In the transformed world of Shadowmoor, the rustic town of Kinsbaile became the armed fortress of Kinscaer. Gaddock Teeg died under unknown circumstances, and the position of cenn was taken by Donal Alloway. The fortress was also protected by the mighty magic of the kithkin augur Warree Tarcha. When Ashling attacked Kinscaer for the first time, Alloway and Tarcha tried to force her away, with the help of the mindweft. After Ashling killed Alloway, Tarcha used her protective magic to teleport her to the edge of the world. Later, Oona contacted Tarcha and offered her her help in exchange of Kinscaer supporting her cause against the Destroyer. Tarcha agreed. However, when Rhys arrived to Kinscaer, he found out that the whole doun's population was dead, strangled by Oona's vines. The Fae Queen killed all the kithkin to exploit the power of their mindweft and Tarcha's abilities for her own purpose.

With the renewed day/night cycle of the new world, Kinscaer was probably repopulated by kithkin from other douns, becoming once again the kithkin "capital".
