Rating details. Book ratings by Goodreads. Abhorsen ends with her sending the recently dead Nicholas back to Life, while the Dog trots away along the border of Life and Death. She is destined to be the next ruler of the Old Kingdom.

She wields Dyrim in the second binding of Orannis. Named for a friend of Sabriel's, who fell during the battle at Wyverly College. Hedge[ edit ] Hedge is a necromancer in service of Orannis, who supplies Nicholas Sayre in mistake for Prince Sameth as the latter's avatar. He is roughly years old. Motivated by an all-consuming desire for immortality, he believes that if he frees Orannis, he will become viceroy over the Dead; but fails when tricked into passing the Ninth Gate.

It is suggested in the prologue of Lirael; later in Abhorsen; and once in Nicholas Sayre and the Creature in the Case that Hedge was once a member of the Crossing Point Scouts preventing Dead creatures from entering Ancelstierre, and a necromancer thereafter. During his youth, he tried to make use of Free Magic, but was consumed by it and became one of the Greater Dead.

Desirous of power, he attempts to destroy the Charter killing most of his family in the process and causes a long interregnum ; but is ultimately placed in suspended animation by Sabriel. In Goldenhand, after discovering how Chlorr was able to come into power and extend her life , the Abhorsen theorized Chlorr was the one who corrupted Kerrigor.

Lirael[ edit ] Lirael, the protagonist of the second and third books, is Sabriel's younger half-sister on the father's side; but is unaware of this until her nineteenth year, and largely raised by her mother's relatives, the Clayr. Because she lacks the Clayr's precognitive 'Sight', she is considered an eccentric by her neighbors at the Clayr's headquarters, and prefers solitude to company.

In young-adulthood, she joins the staff of the Clayr's Library, and acquires the Disreputable Dog; and with the latter's help, vanquishes a series of monsters in the Library itself.

During a later exploration, she is identified as a 'Remembrancer' a clairvoyant able, under special conditions, to accurately perceive the past , and immediately sent to rescue Nicholas Sayre. Thereafter she and the dog conduct the second binding of the Destroyer. Lirael is next seen in Nicholas Sayre and the Creature in the Case, wherein she has been some time in practice as Sabriel's assistant and pending successor; but specializes here, as in the Library, in the incapacitation of monsters.

List of Old Kingdom characters

Until the end of the initial series, he resents this control, and if freed attempts to kill the current Abhorsen, but is usually confined anew. When confined he resembles a white cat, unless permitted by his current superior to assume a humanoid form; whereas the confinement itself appears as a collar or belt of red leather, distinguished by a bell Saraneth originally, and Ranna in the second and third books whose influence maintains his servitude.

Throughout the story his role is largely the provision of wry or sometimes snide comments on the present situation.

At the climax of the third book he assumes his true form and assists the imprisonment of Orannis. As Yrael he appears as a vaguely humanoid plume of blue-white, possibly electromagnetic energy. The nickname 'Mogget' is not identified; but may be traced to the Australian and British term 'moggy', an affectionate term for cats or any non-pedigree cat. Sabriel reports she rarely sees Mogget, although he does visit Prince Sameth from time to time.

However, he is always in cat form when he visits. Several months after being unknowingly invaded by a sliver of Orannis, Nicholas goes to visit Sameth in the Old Kingdom; but becomes possessed by Orannis himself. He dies toward the end of Abhorsen; but is resurrected by the Disreputable Dog.

In the novella, Nicholas Sayre and the Creature in the Case , he assists Lirael in the imprisonment of a monster.

In Abhorsen, Nicholas died but was saved from a true death by the Disreputable Dog. She gave Nicholas a "late" baptism of a Charter Mark and preserved his spirit in Death. Due to being Orannis' vessel, Nicholas has powerful and strong Free Magic in his blood. Orannis[ edit ] The antagonist Orannis, called the Destroyer, is a malevolent, interplanetary immortal referred to as the "Ninth Bright Shiner" desirous to destroy the biosphere of any planet it encounters, but eventually imprisoned by 7 of its 8 cohorts.

In the novels Lirael and Abhorsen, it attempts self-resurrection aided by human agents, but is imprisoned again by the leading characters. When briefly free, it emits a series of 'manifestations', whereof the second resembles an atomic explosion; and when imprisoned, is confined in two immense metallic ' hemispheres ', each containing half of its constitution, and further held by 7 apotropaic materials.

Sabriel[ edit ] Sabriel is the protagonist of the first novel, and a supporting character in the second and third. Sabriel's mother died shortly after birth, but her father, the Abhorsen Terciel, rescued Sabriel.

By her father's wishes, Sabriel grew up in Ancelstierre after living a few years in the Old Kingdom with her father. Shortly before she was to graduate from her school, Wyverley College in Ancelstierre, a Dead servant of her father's gives her his bells and his sword.

She interprets this to mean that her father is trapped deep in Death. She returns to the Old Kingdom to save her father.

At the Abhorsen's house, she meets Mogget, and learns that there has been no king in two hundred years. When the house is besieged by the dead, Sabriel escapes by calling a flood and flying away with Mogget on a Paperwing a spelled plane made of paper.This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

I shall share with you creations regarding our shared bell and my tumblr url. Will continue update. The reference is confirmed by both Sabriel and Touchstone himself, when both speak of 'Touchstone' as 'a jester's name' or 'fool's name' upon its introduction.
