Search for 'Rayek' on Amazon

SharpDark HighThing

Son of Jarrah and Ingen; lovemate of Kahvi and Winnowill; father of Venka; student of Savah and Ekuar.

Rayek, whose name means "child of the rocks", had long been the chief hunter of the Sun Folk. Lifelong friends with Leetah, they spent nearly 600 years together before Cutter's arrival forever changed Rayek's world. After his failure in the Trial of the Hand, Head, and Heart, Rayek lost everything and left the Sun Village to find a place of his own. Restless and brooding, Rayek must be first in all things, or feel he was nothing. Rayek is not evil as Winnowill is evil, but rather narrow-focused in his quest to shape the world as he truly feels it should be. His overweening ego blinds him to others' true needs and wants.

The stabilizing influences in Rayek's life have been Savah, Ekuar, Venka, and Zhantee. Their loving support allowed him to face the pain he had caused others. The only thing that rivaled the Palace for Rayek's attention was Winnowill. No greater love could ever be demonstrated than that of Rayek's absorption of Winnowill's spirit to save both her and the World of Two Moons. Rayek could not risk Winnowill seizing control of the Palace. He now wanders the world with Ekuar, wearily fulfilling his job as both Winnowill's jail and jailer.
