Ilke is the more curious of the two and easily gets herself in trouble. She often refuses to admit it when she's scared, even when she cries. Being Raised by Dudes without any real mother or big sister figure in her life, is she clearly a Tomboy. On their journey when they meet women she does pick up a few traits from them. Has a huge love for mothers, almost to the point of Les Yay, and really enjoys their scent and tone of voice.

She does not have much control of her powers in the beginning, causing her to hurt Alk badly once. But once she can control them does she mainly use them to help rather than to fight. She is the most fighting for Slave Liberation, seeing a slave causes her to free them. She can however be shy around strangers and then Alk has to talk for her. Got an invincibility cloak from the Air Prophets which she's really proud of.

After a long while he finds a omnious mace which Ezau tells him he wants. When he touches it, he can't let it go. When he leaves the Kraken follows him. When he returns to the village he gets banished until he can get rid of the mace as it's can be dangerous to the village. He goes to the surface and he's captured. The mace is forced from his hand and he's made a slave. The ship is destroyed by the kraken and another slave ship collects him and the others.
