Dinnat's mate was the best friend of Gerdon 'Hilot, the kaidon of Hilot. During the Blooding Years Gerdon sided with the Swords of Sanghelios, a decision that cost him his life. Initially Gerdon's mate, Kasha 'Hilot led the city-state, but once the fighting died down she gave the title of kaidon to Dinnat's mate. It became her duty to manage various affairs in the state, with a dozen keeps under her purview, housing thousands of families. Kasha briefly stayed on to advise Dinnat in her new role, though Kasha did not stand in Dinnat's way as Kasha believed that her former job was now Dinnat's.
