Back on page 15 of this chapter, Prince Jilak explained to Tirin how he obtained the timegate to go to Riuotho. A woman in his harem named Cadence was the one who advised him — he did not know it was a timegate, he was only told of the possibility that he could become very powerful (by trading for Lord Durminat’s ability to siphon energy from humans). We have not seen much of Cadence — her name was mentioned on page 15 and there was a brief glimpse of her when she appeared to be whispering in Mr. Wonij’s ear (Darsin is his first name) on page 33 of chapter 20 (we didn’t know at the time that she was Cadence, all we knew at that time was that she was some ghostly mysterious woman).  Now this page is meant to connect the name with that “ghostly” woman
