Who is Jara?

Every month we will spotlight one of the characters of Gatemaker and provide a little insight into who they are as the story opens. These descriptions are light on spoilers, but will hint at events to come, not just in Gatemaker but in the greater tapestry of the Spiralchain as well.

Jara Abison is a twelve year old girl born and raised on the world of Onus. The daughter of a warrior loyal to the Council that governs the free people of Onus and an unassuming maid, her pedigree is a bit more fantastic than she knows. Jara has always been a tomboy and a consummate troublemaker, an attitude only made worse by the death of her father at the hands of the warlord Hyrak. While Hyrak’s forces slowly sweep across the known world, obliterating all opposition, Jara and her mother have taken refuge at Gar Nought, a monastery located in the Green Reaches of the northern continent. Gar Nought is a sleepy little village populated by old men, and Jara chafes at being confined there instead of out avenging her father’s death. Jara has had very little contact with other children, and is incredibly bright and well-learned when she takes the time to think about things.

Jara is the inheritor of a very old and very important legacy, but she won’t take the first steps on that road until her life is upended by unspeakable tragedy.

Jara’s tale most often revolves around ideas of family and of destiny.

Jara’s story begins in Gatemaker, on sale now!
