Stanchion was the leader of a Skill-coterie and formerly the lover of Kestrel, laterly that of Gull.
There were originally 5 members of his short-lived coterie:
and 2 un-named others. They were one of Queen Diligence's Coteries. After Kestrel's actions, the remaining 3 members sought the Skill-road that led from Jhaampe Town in order to carve a Stone-dragon. They were not seen of again.
