Speaker of the Sun
The Speaker of the Sun is the absolute monarch of the elven kingdom of Qualinesti, equivalent to the Silvanesti Speaker of the Stars. He resides in the capital city of Qualinost and wears the Sun Medallion, which cannot be removed by anyone except the Speaker while he lives. Speakership ordinarily passes from father to firstborn son. The first Speaker of the Sun was Kith-Kanan, and the Speakership has remained in the Kanan family throughout the intervening millennia.
The most recent Speaker of the Sun was Mellias Kanan, but the eladrin assassin Taelthas the Twilit slew him shortly after the Puncture. It is not presently known who will succeed Mellias — and with the eladrin still running rampant through Qualinost, it is likely the elves have even bigger matters on their minds.
