Soulmates found one story at a time.

Inedel is the most recent vessel of the Eel Mage. His is white-haired, white-eyed, and losing muscle mass as mage magic consumes him from the inside.

The Eel Mage kept witches and magical creatures he fed on trapped in aquariums and terrariums on his island. 

He and his brother Dmitri were kidnapped and taken prisoner by a prior Eel Mage and Khebarin when they were children.

He tried to force Ember to bond with him, but was taken prisoner by Stryx and Ciaran. He’s currently being held prisoner in the dungeon under the Ildum’s compound.
