Bones, born as Pieter, is young boy from New Nerra whom Rye, Sonia and Dirk met in the Saltings in the alternative future Dorne, then an elderly man. In the present time, they encountered Pieter again, from the time before the Shadow Lord's invasion of Dorne. Pieter is the youngest of Carryl's grandsons.

Pieter in the alternative future, named Bones "then", was thin and pale, with extremely long limbs. He had a wide gummy grin that stretched across his face.
In the present time, Pieter is a puny boy, only a few years younger than Chieftain Farr's son Zak, and his features are a miniature version of his grandmother, giving his small face a clownish look. Like his mother, he is extremely tall and thin, with a beaky nose, a wide, humorous mouth and piercing blue eyes.
