Nyle was born the third child of House Caeden to parents in the prime of their political power. His elder siblings, sister Octanda and brother Clyvus, were raised to wield the house's power through the shrewd use of wealth and prestige in the family's time-honored tradition. Nyle, however, was always more taken with his family's estates, at home in their extensive gardens bejeweled with golden apiaries. He spent many days exploring the flowers and herbs growing on the estates, pestering the attendants to answer his many questions, and reading botanical books he'd begged his parents to acquire on his behalf.
His parents found Nyle's fascinations almost beneath the attention of their child, but in his youth, they were too engaged in their own maneuverings while properly raising their heir and second child to pay it too much mind. Nyle was regarded as the sweet but perhaps too simple child whose quirks were indulged because his elder siblings showed appropriate promise in the correct pursuits.
Nyle was not so simple as his parents sometimes imagined, though, and even as a child understood much of the machinations occurring around him as House Caeden worked to advance itself even if he cared little for it himself. Octanda and Clyvus, more favored to the house, often stuck together and scoffed at their younger brother's bookishness, which only encouraged Nyle's disdain toward those things they, and his house as a whole, valued.
