And The Stars, And the Earth
Valet to Marquess mac Mordaigh
Isselmeer (Horace Isselmeer, but nobody called him ‘Horace’ except his late wife) has been serving the household of Marquess Duncan mac Mordaigh since he was a boy, as did his father and his father’s father. He is Dunk’s invaluable retainer, companion, counselor, bodyguard, hunting partner, tennis opponent, cup-bearer, and schedule-keeper. Isselmeer is the very model of the composed chateleine, maintaining perfect poise and flawless protocol no matter the situation. He dotes on his daughter Celes, and finds it difficult to say no to Lady Jay; her fierce intelligence and long black hair reminds him too much of his dear departed wife.
