Met King in the South West. We traveled and observed Kine and wrote several papers together on the effects of Kindred on the mental health of the herd.
Sylas didn't spend much time in England. What he remembers of his time there is of his time with his mother before they moved. He was educated at home and brought up in the Church, his father being a minister and missionary.
