The Roh is an ancient, powerful spirit of the wilderness of Carryn-yehl.
Capricious, as spirits often are, and with very different morals to those of humans, she only very rarely interferes directly with their world. But sensing the darkness that was to come, she chose to act.
Taking the shape of a beautiful human woman, she enthralled the young king Carryn while he was hunting in her forests, let him wed her and became for a short time the queen Neyrika. She bore him a son, Corrin, then vanished back to her wilderness – a bright seed planted in the human world, to take root and help things grow again one day, after the destruction.
With equal care, she watched over the little orphaned Ititshi child that had found himself lost in her domain, keeping him safe and secure in her own way.
For in her heart, they were both her children, both as necessary to the order of things; winter as natural as spring, wildfire to cleanse away the old, and new growth to spring out of its ashes.
