Zel was the 4th Hope, slain by Irving. The tragic nature of her death has had a large impact on the main cast; but, it was her erasure of Fae’s memories that has had the largest impact. While Zel never did voice her reasons for the erasure, she carried out the task in part because she was about to undertake a quest that would have ended the Hope line completely; she felt that it would be far crueler to leave Fae with memories of a world that she could no longer visit. It was a tough decision for Zel to make and caused a falling out with Adrik because he didn’t agree with the action and because Zel forcibly borrowed his powers to carry out the memory wipe. It was an action she soon came to regret but the damage had already been done.
