Lady Kel was a female Vapra[1] Gelfling of high birth, being the daughter of Vedev the Elder. She was born during the final few trine of the Age of Harmony.

When the Fallen urSkeks were due to return to their homeworld, Kel was invited to witness the event. She was joined on the way by Raunip, with whom she shared a suspicion of the urSkek's motives, and song-teller Gyr, with whom she formed a bond. When they arrived at The Castle of the Crystal, Kel was one of the few to witness The Great Division. She managed to fight off the Skeksis alongside Gyr, and escaped from the Castle atop Landstriders.[2]
