Kokeeno Pookameeso is one of the contestants in the Rites of Rulership. He joined the guards of Silmaria at the age of sixteen and wishes to be king. He tells the protagonist, "No outsider could rule Silmaria with more love than I." Kokeeno is the first of the contestants to die, and his blood is used to defile the first of the dragon pillars, damaging the spell that keeps the Dragon of Doom in check.
Kokeeno is the first champion to fight In Ferrari's arena. He uses a standard shield and spear.
Behind the scenesEdit
His name is a reference to the Greek words, "kokkino poukamiso," meaning "red shirt." This is a reference to the common Star Trek cliche of killing off at least one red-uniformed security officer per episode.
