Well, Nikys IS a bastard. Her mother was the concubine, while Adelis is the twin-from-another-mother son of their father’s wife.
So, it appears that being illegitimate trumps being a young woman and thus belonging to the Daughter? Though perhaps when and if she has children, she would transfer to the Mother?
