Rowan Kenrith is a planeswalker from Eldraine, who specializes in electrical magic. She is the twin sister of Will Kenrith. He and their friends sometimes affectionately call her Ro. Her other siblings are Erec and Hazel, her father is High King Algenus Kenrith, and her stepmother is Queen Linden.

Description[edit | edit source]

The young warrior-mage twins, Rowan and Will Kenrith, are unique among planeswalkers in that they share a single planeswalker's spark.[2][3] Rowan, bold and impetuous, augments her swordplay with crackling electrical energy that dances along her blade, while Will, reserved and contemplative, uses his power over ice to control the flow of a fight. They often coordinate their magic to make it more effective.

Together they travel from plane to plane, following the knightly virtues with which they were raised in pursuit of achieving the most good. Like her twin, she is cursed from birth.

Rowan Kenrith is centered in Red mana.

History[edit | edit source]

Youth[edit | edit source]

Rowan and her twin were born after a witch had enthralled their father and lived with him for a year. Their birth-mother killed the new-borns for their blood, which she would've drunk to extend her life. When Algenus regained his conscience he killed the witch. At the same time, their adoptive mother gave up her sword's power to restore life to the twins and took them in as her own kids.

The Wildered Quest[edit | edit source]

Eighteen years old, the twins' quest for their missing father, the High King, who has been abducted by the planeswalkers Oko and Garruk Wildspeaker. Indrelon the Magic Mirror, reveals the location of their father and that he has been transformed in a stag.[4] Later on, Will rescues Garruk from certain death. His act of braveness and persistence summons the Cauldron of Eternity, which cures the hunter of the Chain Veil curse. The twins fail to protect the stag from the Wild Hunt, but Algenus is brought back to life bis his wife Linden. This all happens near a witch's cottage at the fringe of the Wilds, actually the house where the twins had been born. As Linden reveals the shocking truth about their origins, Rowan becomes upset that they hadn't been told earlier. The shock ignites the twins' planeswalker's spark and they disappear. Garruk, who is thankful for his cure, promises the King and Queen to track their children and to keep them safe.

Kylem[edit | edit source]

Rowan competed with her brother at the stadium of Valor's Reach on Kylem. No one knew where the mysterious pair came from or why they felt the need to test themselves on Valor's Reach. But anyone who faced them in battle realized very quickly their ability to reinforce each other's powers was a force to be reckoned with.[5]
