Rylan Keal was a personal guard of Penellaphe Balfour.
After the unexpected death of Hannes, Rylan was assigned as Poppy's personal guard.
From Blood and Ash
Rylan was the only person who called Poppy by the nickname Pen. He often would escort Poppy to the gardens in the evening so she could see the night-blooming roses. Rylan was protective of Poppy, and he was very reluctant to allow Poppy to talk to Lord Mazeen by herself knowing the Lord's reputation.
Rylan was kind and often relaxed.
