Ruler of the Great Sea. His true name is Tri. In the pantheon of the Ingas Overlords of Orestol he is equated with Paulus. He is as a god and offers to help Alentir, though the Usksu is slow to realise this; but he will not imperil his own realm, for he recognises the fragility of the submarine world, so when he perceives Alentir as a threat he expels him.
He existed before Kolchin, yet makes no claim to creativity, and is essentially a benevolent ruler. His wisdom has increased, as has his appearing to do nothing, but he is a subtle creature.
Whether Alentir really meets him, or dreams of the meetings as he tries to drown, cannot be known. It all seems real to him. (The Migrator)
