Raire.  I’m sure this one is a surprise, because it’s part of something special that will probably take years to get to, but this is Raire, the brother of Rama and a wolf/tiger hybrid.

She’s the cheerful sort, where her brother is moody and scheming.  That’s never been her way, although she DID do something bad that she didn’t realize at the time, to Syrys, who also doesn’t realize it.  She has powerful abilities that were unknown to her for much of her life, which her brother would kill for if he knew.  Raire is someone who is making ripples in the world of Cyantia without trying.  Her only concern is to bring healing to those that need it and stop the kind of suffering that she and her brother went through from birth to restructure their legs.

Raire is still deeply in love with Syrys, having left during the war because of what happened with her brother and his love.  She didn’t want to put Syrys in a similar situation.
