Heather Longtreader first met Kylen during her stay at Cloud Mountain. At first, he proved to be a loyal friend, even going so far as to publicly defend her from Captain Frye. However, he later helped organize an ambush on Smalden Joveson, revealing himself to actually be a traitor to the Resistance, though his behavior suggested that he lamented the stand he took.
Sometime later, Kylen is revealed to be the son of Bleston and the prince of Terralain, thus making him the rival of Smalls and Emma. Despite this, though, he still risked his life to save Emma and Heather from a wolf during a battle. Not long after this, however, Kylen — clearly mentally deteriorating — confronted Emma and implored her to give up the throne, but she staunchly refused.
The circumstances of Kyle's early life are unknown, but he was eventually sent by his father Bleston to infiltrate The Resistance. When he arrived at Cloud Mountain, he took to hanging out with a group of young carefree bucks, gaining a reputation as a rogue and a liar, given his tendency to exaggerate and fabricate information. However, he did occasionally share truthful details, such as asserting his status as a prince to Emma.

Attack on Cloud Mountain
Kyle betrays Cloud Mountain to the wolves occupying Decker's Landing as ordered by his father Bleston. He sent Smalls into a trap at Jupiter's Crossing. Kyle asked Smalls to leave the Green Ember behind to keep it from Morbin, but he really intended to steal it. He is found rummaging through Smalls' room by Heather and Picket during the wolf attack, at which point it is discovered that Smalls did not follow his advice, and took The Green Ember with him to Jupiter's Crossing.
Attack on Halfwind
Kyle saved Halfwind from the attacking wolves with his Father and their army. Kyle personally saves Heather and Emma from a wolf at the very end of the battle. Its discovered that he is Prince Kylen, son of King Bleston, Second Lord of Terralain and Heir to all of Natalia.
Politicking in Halfwind
|“||Your allies are...all lies.||”|
He tries to get Emma to give up and give him the throne, but she refuses and turns to leave; before she does, however, she suggests that perhaps he should stop taking the medicine that Tameth Seer has been giving him.
Personality and traits
|“||He's charming, true, but he's also a wily, arrogant, mischievous, self-centered hooligan.||”|
After the events which led to his father being killed, however, Kylen takes on a darker, more serious personality. His wounds have made him weak and feverish. As Perkinson revealed, Kylen never was revealed very clearly to his father’s treacherous, making him deteriorate under Tameth Seer’s suggested influence.
