Rowan of Rin
Val and her brother Ellis join the party climbing up the Mountain to restore the stream to Rin. After Ellis deserts the party she is anxious and a shadow of herself; in the swamp it is revealed that she cannot stand to be away from Ellis for any length of time and this results in her leaving the group with Bronden.
