Prior to an Tir 276 and the reign of King Sedelas, no Caladani ever willingly stepped foot on the Fon S'ul, with the exception of the N'Dhathu skirmishes in the summer of an Tir 228. However, the Golden Age of Calcaida was ushered in by King Sedelas and his unquenchable curiosity. During that time, many guilds were established, including the Guild of the Apothecary, and Caladani knowledge blossomed. During that time, The Apothecars as they were known reached farther and farther into their surroundings, attempting to impress each other. Only one naturalist spent time in the Fon S'ul, however: Alenya of Penhill. Unlike the other Apothecar's Alenya was a woman. She spent most of her adult life living in and cataloging the plants and animals of the Fon S'ul, from the Brin Gai to the southwest reaches of the Makdur- kluk and north of the Mar-duk S'ul and the Mak-Mak Mountains. That she survived this feat is a miracle in itself. No less impressive was her induction to the Guild of the Apothecary in an Tir 286 by King Sedelas himself. It is Alenya of Penhill who wrote the original Mak dur s'lu-chu folku vulga, otherwise known as The Dark Flora, in an Tir 290 from her own collected drawings. Though it has been added to over the years, she still remains one of Calcaida's most celebrated naturalists. Though it is presumed that Alenya died on the field, her body was never recovered. Her team returned to Calcaida without her, but no one would tell of her death. It was claimed by at least one of her crewmen that she had forbid them to speak of her death, wanting to be considered immortal; however, later speculation uncovered some evidence that she was murdered by the flora and fauna she loved so well.
