Jarka Ruus Character List

The list for order of appearance has only the characters that had an physical part in the story, not the people that were mentioned only in passing (such as Mirianna Ohmsford - Par and Coll's mother); these will be indicated by italics in the alphabetically-ordered list.

Grianne's War Shrike; it flew her and Kermadec to Skull Mountain.
Shadea a'Ru
The new Ard Rhys after Grianne vanished, she was the main plotter in trying to get rid of the other. It was she who applied the potion liquid night to Grianne.
Iridia Eleri
An Elven sorceress who loved Ahren Elessedil, she plotted with Shadea a'Ru as well but became controlled by the other thing she was helping - it was the thing from the Forbidding that had given her the liquid night. When it promised to become Ahren for her, it joined with her physically and extinguished her mind.
Traunt Rowan
A Southlander that plotted with Shadea.
Pyson Wence
A Gnome that plotted with Shadea.
Sen Dunsidan
Prime Minister of the Southland, he received the potion liquid night from Iridia and in turn gave it to Shadea.
Penderrin Ohmsford
Son of Bek and Rue Ohmsford and bearer of a magic that allows him to understand and communicate with everything living, it is he who must find the tanequil, shape the darkwand, and go into the Forbidding alone to save his aunt Grianne.
King of the Silver River
Living since the time of Faerie, he appears to Pen Ohmsford to tell him about what he must do to save the Ard Rhys. He also saved him and Tagwen from being seen when the Galaphile sailed above them.
Weka Dart
An Ulk Bog who speaks an Elven dialect, he was Grianne's guide in the Forbidding until she told him that she wanted to go back to where she first appeared; he left her then. He was banished from his tribe when he ate another's babies.
Ahren Elessedil
An Elven prince gone Druid, he went with Pen to save the Ard Rhys. He is Khyber's uncle. Ahren was killed when Terek Molt confronted him, but not before he, with the power of the Elfstones to aid him, destroyed both Molt and the Galaphile.
Khyber Elessedil
Daughter of Kylen and brother of Kellen Elessedil, the current Elven King, she goes with Pen to save the Ard Rhys. After the death of Ahren Elessedil, she is entrusted with the Elfstones. She knows some earth magic, which she learned from Ahren.
Gar Hatch
A Rover; he was the captain of Skatelow until Aphasia Wye killed him and his crew. He betrayed Pen and Ahren by telling Molt where they were and left them stranded in the Slags.
Blind, she is the daughter of Gar Hatch and has magic of her own - she can "see" with her mind and was her father's navigator. She was the only one left alive when Aphasia Wye killed the people of the Skatelow so that she could find Pen for him.
Also known as the Warlock Lord, he is now a shade. Grianne ended up summoning him when she went to the Forbidding's version of the Hadeshorn to ask for help. He told her that a boy was coming to save her and that Shadea a'Ru and the others were nothing but pawns.
Aphasia Wye
An assassin whose origin is unknown, he is sent by Shadea to kill Pen and his allies. He wields the Stiehl.
A moor cat that Pen encountered while trapped in the Slags, it now follows them to Taupo Rough.
