Ildiko Breckl was the Queen of Kerack, able to marry into royalty mostly thanks to her cunning and wits. Originally she was to be wedded to Belohun but by presenting him with a deadly, magical necklace she made sure that the monarch would become strangled to death by it. The new crown prince Viraxas, nearly instantaneously, resurrected an ancient law, about which no one had ever heard, that stated he was now responsible for his father's bride and would merry her. At the time of Ildiko's wedding, Coral estimated that she was "at least" 25 years old, even though she looked as if she was 17 years old. Her life wasn't easy, she was expelled from Aretuza on her third year due to petty thievery.
