A list of characters in Juathuur and tropes associated with them.
open/close all folders
FaevvHeir to the Shadow, protagonist, and kind of unfriendly. Faevv (pronounced fayhyv) is a Juathuur girl raised on a tiny island in the world of Fianna. Her father had disappeared some years before and left her to be picked up by her uncle Arvval and brought to the Raft. There she was put in a Danei squad and promptly shoved off without any training with squad-leader Thomil and squadmates Dejoru and Ratheel.
RatheelThe clown of the Raft's Danei, Ratheel (rah-theel) is on the surface rather relaxed and undisciplined. He is easily bored and impulsive, which leads him into trouble more often than not. He's smarter than he acts, though, and gifted with Word magic... if in a way that's indistinguishable from just blowing things up with Wave.
DejoruDejoru (deh-zjor-oo) is a Raft rat, one of the recent generations of Juathuur raised among others of their kind rather than among normal people. He's serious yet naive, having lost several people close to him but still trusting in others. His parents passed away while he was young, leaving his sister Mijuu to take on the role of surrogate mother. Veithel was one of his closest friends until she disappeared the year before in Fava, presumed dead as well.
MijuuMijuu (mih-hwoo) is a powerful young Juathuur recently raised to the rank of Ronei. She is Dejoru's older sister and popular with her fellows and Dej's friend Ratheel. She is a dangerous mixture of reckless and calculating, as she pushes herself hard yet pushes any opponent harder.
MeidarThuunei Meidar (meye-dar) is the head of the Juathuur on the Raft, and one of the more influential Juathuur worldwide. Few would gainsay her, even the other Thuunei Elders, for Meidar has an iron will that forged the Raft tribe out of the scattered fragments of other tribes, many of which were nearly crushed by wars when she was young.
ArvvalMaster of Shadow magic and Meidar's right hand, Arvval (ar-hval) is Faevv's uncle and the only other known Shadow user. He is strong in his magic and dedicated to the Way and the Raft. In combat he is a nigh-unstoppable force when he wishes to be, but truly excels as an intrusion expert. Loyalty is both his principal virtue and vice.
ThomilThomil (thom-ihl) is the foremost Therun or Healer among the Raft Juathuur. Where most of the other Juathuur train to use their powers in combat, Thom is content being an itinerant healer who shares the more benign uses of his powers with others. He's a very capable Word user, even able to use a few minor Shadow tricks despite not having the proper bloodline. He is also haunted by the specter of his lost love Neilli and now constantly questions his elders' choices that lead to her death.
SojueiloA capable adept in both Wind and Wave magic, Sojueilo (so-why-lo) is one of the Raft's more accomplished Dodon warriors. Where some others would rely solely on their power, Sojueilo is also an extremely dangerous unarmed combatant. She's worked hard to get as good as she is, but still feels the need to prove herself even more.
