Korval Lines were
- yos’Phelium, the delm’s blood; roughly translated by Jela as "Courier Pilot"
- yos’Galan, the traders;
- bel’Tarda, the subordinate Line
Founded by M. Jela Granthor's Guard. Founding members Cantra yos’Phelium and Tor An yos'Galan. Korval is ships. Korval is also bound to the tree Jelaza Kazone (roughly - Jela's Promise/Dream/Contract) based on a promise Cantra's partner, M Jela, made to the Ssussdriad, as the trees' species is known, when he was stranded on its last home planet.
The founding of Clan Korval is described in Crystal Dragon, chapters 30 and 31. (Shan gives another briefer account of the founding of the Clan, which differs somewhat in the details, in Conflict of Honors, Shipyear 65, Tripday 143, Second Shift.) The circumstances under which Line bel'Tarda was later brought into the Clan are described in "Heirloom".
