Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
thread, weather, metal, and plant magic. All of the children's magics are so rare, normal magic finders couldn't see it, and it took the mage Niklaren Goldeye to find it.
Sandry, Tris, Daja, and Briar. The full names of the members are: Lady Sandrilene fa Toren, Trisana Chandler (a merchant), Daja Kisubo of the Third Ship Kisubo (a Trader), and Briar Moss (a former thief). Lark, Niko, Frostpine, and Rosethorn are their teachers, respectively.
the Green Lady. Daine's mother, as the Green Lady, will appear above Snowsdale's town well. The women of the town ask her advice on childbirth, and other womanly concerns. As Sarra said, the Great Mother cannot be everywhere at once.
Arram Draper. Numair's given name was Arram Draper. He changed it to Numair Samalin because he somehow offended the Emperor Ozorne of Carthak, and ordered to be captured and brought to Carthak so he could be imprisoned or killed.
Raadeh. Onua is from the K'miri Raadeh. Her full name is Onua Chamtong of the K'miri Raadeh.
|This is about "The Song of the Lioness". What color was Duke Roger of Conte's original magic?||Series by Tamora Pierce
orange. Roger's magic was orange, but when Thom brought him back from the dead, Roger's magic was blood-red. Alanna noticed it when his magic began leaking into the Trebond purple, thereby tinting Thom's magic.
|This is about "The Song of the Lioness". Who was Alanna's sponsor when she first became a page? ||Series by Tamora Pierce
Gary. Gary was Alanna's sponsor, and he was the only one to know, besides George and Jon, about Alanna's being a girl. When she told him, he thought it was a great joke, and agreed to help Jon with Alanna's rite of knighthood.
George Cooper, Baron of Pirate's Swoop. Alanna ended up marrying George. She did not want to be queen of Tortall, and Liam ended up dying, protecting Jon from assassination.
Tortall and Summersea. "The Song of the Lioness" and "The Immortals" both take place in Tortall and the surrounding countries of that world. "The Circle of Magic" takes place in Summersea in Emlan, and in the surrounding countries/cities. I used Summersea and Tortall because they are the main settings.
No. She dies from the blue pox and is pulled back into life by Briar, Sandry, Tris, and Daja. Briar finds her tending a rambunctious garden in Death, and she seems not to want to leave. However, Briar loves her as a mother, and she can't go away!
Pirate's Swoop. She moves into the Barony of Pirate's Swoop with her husband, George. George was given the property and title of Baron so that Jonathan wouldn't have to arrest him. George is good friends with Jonathan, although they fought over Alanna.
Heights. Keladry is deathly afraid of heights until the end of "Page." She has to rescue her maid at the top of a tower, and afterwards only detests heights. It was better than before, when she would throw up or freeze near a cliff.
|Who does the main character in the first quartet eventually marry (not in the adult version of the books)?||Books by Tamora Pierce!
Baron George. She goes for the poorer, more loveable guy. Aww. How sweet.
|What type of magic does the Acalon family usually accept? (Not Pasco's magic, and is keeping with their jobs)||Books by Tamora Pierce!
Harrier Magic. Pasco is the exception; he has Dance Magic. The rest of the family are Harriers. The ones that have any kind of magic have Harrier Magic, usually. They all work for Duke Vedris, fighting crime.
Yes. He was described as "shy". He takes Sandry's place when she goes on to better things, such as training her apprentice, Pasco.
Shatterglass. I found this out by going to Amazon.com. I have too much time on my hands! This book is also in stores now, but only in hardback.
Black. Black robe is the highest that any sorcerer can achieve. At the time of "The Immortals" quartet, there were only 7 in the world. It is a highly risky position, too. Numair is very old for a black robe, and he is only in his 30's!
A basilisk. We first meet Tkaa when he saves Daine and the Long Lake Pack from a Coldfang by turning it to stone. Basilisks often eat stone, and like the taste of black opals the most.
Alanna of Trebond. Keladry of Mindelan was the heroine in the quartet "Protector of the Small". The other two choices are made up. Alanna grew up in Fief Trebond with her twin brother Thom. Thom becomes a sorcerer and gets killed during Alanna's years as a knight.
|Realms of the Gods.
"Got a bit of sand in you crop? A swallow or two of oil should wash it right out the end that does your thinking for you."||Tamora Pierce Quotes
Daine. Daine says this to the Stormwing Rikash. Rikash and Daine had a strange relationship: neither of them could figure out if they were enemies or just friends who enjoyed arguing.
|Alanna: The First Adventure.
"The ground bloodied yer nose, spilt yer lip, and punched ye in th' eye, all at once. Would ye prefer to say 'twas yer pony?"||Tamora Pierce Quotes
Coram. Alanna was thoroughly beaten by Ralon several times during her first year as a Page. When asked who she had fought with, she always used the traditional excuse "I fell down."
Kyprioth. Kypioth is a Trickster God. He once was Aly's father's patron god as well. George doesn't think that highly of Kyprioth. I think that Kyprioth is really funny.
Daine's lover. At first Numair was just Daine's teacher. He called her 'Magelet' but in the fourth book they became lovers. Numair asked Daine to marry him but she said, "Maybe someday, if you're very good!" I think that they should marry each other.
Moonsword. Daine found this out in Carthak. She, along with a whole bunch of other people, was there to make peace. She was mostly just there to heal the Emperor's birds because they had heard that the Emperor loved his birds. The Emperor is very evil.
No. Jonathon asked Alanna to marry him but she asked for more time. He assumed that it was a yes and they got in a big fight over it. The fight ended with Alanna saying, "Find yourself someone more feminine Jonathon!" After that Alanna got together with George. I think that that was a better match for her anyway.
Skysong. She was the child of the dragon that died protectiong Daine and her friends from Carthaki ships. She helped them a lot though, sinking a few barges and stuff like that. Just before she died she transferred the information as to where Skysong was. As soon as Daine was rested enough, she, along with an escort, set out to find Skysong. Once they had found her they brought her back to Pirate's Swoop and now is with Daine all of the time.
|"Protector of the Small"- What was the name of the seer child that was found in Scanra?||Tamora Pierce Books
Irnai. She predicted that Neal's daughter would try out for her knighthood. Irnai also predicted that Kel and her friends would come to rescue the village. The villagers didn't know what she meant until Kel came, though, as it didn't make any sense to them at all. I wonder what she'll predict next?
|"Immortals"- What are the things that Numair conjures that look exactly like other people?||Tamora Pierce Books
simulacra. He can make it look like two people, but that's it. We are first introduced to simulacra when Numair uses them to get out of Dunlath. We then encounter them later when Emperor Ozorne uses them.
|"Song of the Lioness"- What was the name of the shaman for the Bloody Hawk tribe who didn't like Alanna?||Tamora Pierce Books
Ibn Nazzir. He hated Alanna and tried to kill her on numerous occasions. He attacked her without warning and she didn't provoke him at all so they had a duel and, of course, Alanna won. Personally, I think that he's a nasty piece of work. I hope that most people will agree with me there.
|"Protector of the Small"- Who was the first person that Keladry had 'feelings' for?||Tamora Pierce Books
Neal. She then had feelings for Cleon, then Dom (although she doesn't know it yet) and she has never had feelings for Merric. During the time that she liked Neal he didn't know this. When she liked Cleon they liked each other. Now, that she likes Dom we haven't yet found out if he likes her back.
|"Song of the Lioness"- What Bazhir tribe did Alanna and Coram get accepted in to?||Tamora Pierce Books
Bloody Hawk. Not very many people in the tribe accepted Alanna and Coram, so Alanna had to fight a tribe member to be let into the tribe. After that the woman still didn't accept her or Coram. That is, until Mari Farah became friends with Alanna, then most people accepted them.
