Iader was the third of the Amonkaanho, the first of the Powers that walked the Greater World, and a parent to the Kaanho proper. Iader is the Kaan of Mercy, or Concern, of unselfish Love as opposed to passion. She is the wife of Pipiath. She has three children by Pipiath... Mayalaph , then the twins Linfal, and Sashang. Seyhe guides the souls that Zaer sends from Tu after their death before C'Don. Then Nado will speak of what they have earned and deserve, and Iader will speak of mercy and plead for the soul. Then C'Don will make his decision. Either the soul will stay with C'Don and the Amonkaanho in the paradise built near the lake Sonuria, or they will be exiled, and sent to wander the mountains of Chaos that encircle it. There are deep shadows in those mountains, and if the soul exiled falls into one, Sagin can do what he wills with it, even drawing it back to Sagin's prison on Tu.

She assumes the appearance of a small, slightly plump woman, with hair not very long, and is often smiling. She is often portrayed with open arms.

Some pray to Iader to intercede with C'Don for them, but that is usually frowned on by the mainstream C'Donites. Still, it is said she hears every plea for help uttered.

Mayalaph inherited her love, although with Mayalaph it is transformed into passion.
