s'Ilessid is the name of the royal line which rules the High Kingdom of Tysan. During the invasion of the Mistwraith, some s'Ilessid members fled into exile through a Worldsend gate to the world of Dascen Elur where they ruled the lands of Amroth, feuding with the Pirate Kings of Karthan.

It is revealed in Curse of the Mistwraith that the royal lines are irreplaceable because of geas wards set by the Fellowship of Seven to "ensure fair rule through generations of dynastic succession"[1]. The gifted geas of the s'Ilessid line is justice.

"You will always seek justice, even where none can be found." -- Dakar to Lysaer[2]

Members of the s'Ilessid family are spell-charged not to second-guess their gift of justice, which is how the Mistwraith gains access to Lysaer in Curse of the Mistwraith.

History

The s'Ilessid line was actually the second choice of the Fellowship to become High Kings of Tysan. Halduin s'Ilessid stepped up when their first choice, Iamine s'Gannley declined.
