Averroes is a shy young woman. She is rescued as a teenager from the terror on the streets of Galilan by Avendeath, and in his care she begins to blossom. When she meets the half-Valleur she remembers her past (and her true name) and her renewed heritage gifts self-confidence and strength. The shy young woman gradually gives way to self-assurance. She, unwisely, loves Torrullin.
