Idesloe was a calendar purrichin who was a member of the Right of the Pacific Dove.


Originally from Flint, Idesloe was once the speardame to its ruling duchess, Sophia Idaho II. As the eldest purrichin of the Right, she mentored the other sagaars. In battle she wielded the Glausopë, an ancient therimoir.



Idesloe was one of the calendars who escorted Threnody to Winstermill in early Pulvis HIR 1601[1] to help her fulfill her wish of becoming a lamplighter. After their carriage was refused lodging at Wellnigh House, they were forced to continue on to Winstermill even though the night was coming on. On the way the carriage was attacked by several Horn-ed Nickers. During the running battle one of the calendars was killed inside the carriage, while another one, also a sagaar, battled the nickers after it had crashed, but fell to them. It is not clear which one was Idesloe and which one was Pannette.[2] After the fight both were laid side by side and mourned by the surviving calendars. Their bodies were loaded on to an ox dray that arrived from Wellnigh that conveyed them and the luggage back to the cothouse. The next morning the pair were taken by one of their surviving sisters, Charllette, back to Herbroulesse via a post-lentulum.[3]
