Kilorn was orphaned by the war. His father died in the war, and after Mr. Warren's remains were returned home in a shoe box, Kilorn's mother ran off, leaving Kilorn alone. He almost starved to death. As a kid, Kilorn would pick fights with Mare and she would beat up Kilorn but then nurtured him, fed him, and befriended him. Mare considers Kilorn her only real friend. Kilorn was once a fisherman's apprentice. When his master died and he became eligible for conscription, he joined the Scarlet Guard.
Kilorn is shown to be very loyal to both the Scarlet Guard, and the Barrow family, particularly Mare. He is clever although he cannot read, having being taken out of school at the age of seven. He is very defensive, especially to Cal, and is sometimes jealous that he doesn't have abilities like Mare and Shade. He is protective over Mare and pledges to be her best friend until the day he dies. He is very good-natured, constantly making a joke over everything.
Physical description Edit
Kilorn has hair that is described to be tawny and "bottle" green eyes. Due to spending long hours on his former master's fishing boat, he developed sea legs.
- Mare imagined that if Kilorn's master had not died and she did not end up taking Mareena Titanos as a false name to survive, she would have chosen Kilorn as her husband and have "green-eyed children with [her] quick feet" with him.
- Kilorn has loved Mare romantically for a long time and although he knew she did not feel the same way, he hoped one day she would. Mare imagines that if she had not met Cal that night, her life would have included: "A friendly marriage to the fish boy with green eyes, children we could love, a poor stilt home."
