During the war with Lord Kass and his forces, Renlye fought valiantly against the invading army of the Darigan Citadel. His leadership at this moment was crucial, since King Skarl was under the magical influence of the Court Dancer and unable to help. Thanks to his quick thinking, however, the Court Dancer's spell was broken, and Ren regained the support of King Skarl. With the King's backing, Meridell was able to mount a counter-attack on the ground against the Darigan invaders. While Lord Kass was focused on the opposition's ground forces, Renlye led the knights of Meridell in an aerial assault that had both the Citadel and Lord Kass as its targets.
During the fierce battle among the clouds, Ren rushed to aid a young soldier. Thomas, a young Zafara, had snuck into the battle in an attempt to lend Ren a helping hand, but only wound up putting himself in harm's way. Though Ren was able to save Thomas from falling off the Citadel, the brave Gelert warrior himself was thrown over seconds later by Lord Kass. For a time, it was believed that the fall had led to Ren's demise. Soon afterward, though, all of Meridell was relieved to learn that a passing air faerie, had rescued Ren by catching him as he fell.
Today Ren lives happily in Meridell, enjoying the peaceful serenity that this land now offers, though he forever keeps a watchful eye.
