Coryphene, commander of armies, lover of mad women

Coryphene is a strong follower of the insane Uriona. He is also dedicated to his people- perhaps a portion of his fervor for defeating the Silvanesti comes out of love for them. When he fears for his countrymen during the war with the Chilkit, he says, “‘I must save my people!'” (131) He is determined to see things through completely- he virtually eradicates the Chilkit race. He has a sense of honor that causes him to disagree with his queen about freeing the prisoners- he made them a promise and he does not plan to go back on it.
