Chayle is the Adeptus Mechanical of the University in Adua. His task is to develop all kinds of mechanisms and contraptions.


Chayle is an old man with an enormous head, and big ears sprouting grey hairs, but a tiny face[1].


The Blade ItselfEdit

Inquisitor Glokta first meets Adeptus Chayle when he goes to the University seeking a mundane explanation for the explosion in Bayaz’ chambers. Glokta is surprised by the warm welcome he gets from the Adepti (Silber, Saurizin, Denka, Chayle and Kandelau), who invite him to dinner. The old men seem surprisingly familiar with Arch Lector Sult, and enquire whether they will receive more funds now that the Mercers’ assets have been seized[1].

Last Argument of KingsEdit

There have been many hints that Sult and Superior Goyle are up to something in the University, and that Sult knows more than most about the occult and the Gurkish Eaters.

During the Battle of Adua, Glokta finally discovers the truth; Sult and Silber, the Adeptus Demonic, have been conducting occult experiments to make contact Demons on The Other Side. He and his motley mercenaries go to the University, and in the room behind the black riveted door, they find the demonic incantation in progress. Chayle is one of the three Adepti holding candles in both hands. Reluctant to cross the salt, Nicomo Cosca kills Silber with his throwing knife. The incantation ends to everyone’s relief, and Adeptus Chayle is arrested with Sult and the others for high treason against his Majesty the King.
