The Witchlands is a series of fantasy novels by Susan Dennard, of which three have been published so far and two more are planned. In addition, there is a prequel book, Sightwitch, offset from the main series and containing some very important backstory information.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })In September 2018, it was announced that the series was being adapted into a TV show by the Jim Henson Company, with Dennard as executive producer.On the eponymous continent, the five Origin Wells cause some people to be born as witches, gifted with supernatural powers. The devastating war to claim the Wells, fought between the various nations of the Witchlands, has only recently subsided thanks to the signing of the Twenty-Year Truce. Unfortunately, that happened nineteen years and four months ago, and permanent peace is nowhere in sight.Not that Safi and Iseult care. A noblewoman and a runaway, both unregistered witches, they live in the capital of the Dalmotti Empire, learning, playing cards and righting wrongs. Safi, however, is more important than she'd like to be — she's the world's only living Truthwitch, a Living Lie Detector, and when her power is discovered, she's forced to run for her life, Iseult — herself a Threadwitch — the only person she can trust.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })On the other hand, Merik Nihar, a Windwitch and a prince, cares very much. His nation, Nubrevna, has been rendered barely habitable by the war, and the surrounding countries refuse to trade with it, hoping for easy prey after the Truce ends. Merik thinks he sees the light at the end of the tunnel when a Cartorran nobleman proposes a trade agreement, but there's a catch — to get it, Merik has to ferry one Safiya fon Hasstrel to Nubrevna. The seemingly simple task is complicated by the hordes of people trying to get their hands on Safi, chief among them Aeduan — a Bloodwitch monk working for a mysterious benefactor, capable of tracking down any living human.And there are stranger things happening. All over the Witchlands, witches are Cleaving, turning into monsters. Beasts of legends are proving to be all too real. The mythical Voidwitches are popping up again, and they're up to no good. And in the ruins of the Republic of Arithuania, ignored by all, a new king has risen — and his ambitions stretch far beyond what he already has.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Books: Truthwitch (2015) Windwitch (2016) Sightwitch (2018): A prequel, much shorter than the other books, but absolutely must be read before Bloodwitch to understand everything. Bloodwitch (2019)

"Well Done, Son!" Guy: Iseult is always trying to please her mother, and the fact that she can't leaves her with a bad case of Heroic Self-Deprecation. Vivia always feels like she can't please her father enough, and sometimes goes against her better judgement because she thinks he'll approve of it.

Anti-Magic: Salamander skin is impervious to magic, rendering a person wearing it invisible to people like Aeduan. The Hell-Bards are somehow resistant to all forms of witchery. It turns out that this is because they're technically Cleaved, with the process being halted by the chains they're wearing.

Parallel Conflict Sequence: The three plotlines of Windwitch all come to a climax at the same time, and the narrative jumps between them. In Bloodwitch, the finale starts like this, but then everyone involved finds their way into the portal doors into the Sightwitch Monastery, and the action converges there.

Poor Communication Kills: Early in Windwitch, Iseult is pursued by a group of Cleaved and leads them onto a Nomatsi road, which they can't navigate, killing them. Some time later, she has a dream conversation with Esme, who tells her that she actually Cleaved those men and sent them after Iseult to help her — they were carrying food and one of them had hunting gear to give Iseult.

Reality Ensues: Safi gets a few of those moments. Near the climax of Windwitch, she has to fight a pirate queen one-on-one. Obviously, a teenager with some knife training will not defeat a woman who spent decades fighting people, and Safi only "wins" because the latter wants something from her. Afterwards, she decides to Take The Third Option in regards to the Hell-Bards (see the relevant trope). However, it quickly becomes apparent that of course the Marstoki politicians won't agree to foreign militia traipsing around their palace, so she has to send them away anyway.

Safi and Iseult have lived together since their tween years and are practically inseparable, to the point that Iseult's entire goal in Windwitch is to return to Safi's side.

Childhood Friends: As kids, Safi and the Cartorran Prince Leopold used to be good friends, but they haven't seen each other for years by the time they meet again in Truthwitch. Nevertheless, they're on good terms. The Nihar siblings and Serrit Linday were friends as kids, with Merik and Vivia playing in the Linday gardens with Serrit, but then Serrit devoted himself to politics and made a deal with Ragnor, making him Vivia's enemy in the Battle Council.

Verbal Tic: Iseult stutters when she's nervous. It's mentioned that she stuttered a lot more as a kid, so her slipping back into an old habit is a sign that she's losing self-control.

Embarrassing Nickname: As a kid, Safi used to call Leopold "Polly". When she calls him this at the Truce Summit ball, he's visibly embarrassed — so of course she makes a point of calling him Polly a lot. Esme dislikes the title Puppeteer, as she thinks it sounds childish. Nonetheless, that's how most people refer to her, including her boss.

King Incognito: Merik ultimately decides not to reveal that he's alive, and he goes into the Sirmayan mountains pretending to be just another traveller in search of food. After their shipwreck, Vaness and Safi decided to hide the fact that the former is the Marstoki Empress. Played for Laughs when Safi decides (jokingly) that the best way would be to refer to Vaness as "Unempress". In a rare non-royal example, Safi is shocked to learn that her mentor Habim is a retired Marstoki general famous enough that his return is significant enough to interrupt the empress' diplomatic meeting.

Human Popsicle: The ultimate fate of all Sightwitches is to be frozen in chambers deep below their convent to sleep with their goddess. In addition, Eridysi's journal reveals that, 1,000 years before, a large number of refugees fleeing from a war between the Twelve Paladins were frozen there to protect them, including all of the Sightwitches at the time. Eridysi, her lover the Rook King's general, and his daughters were as well — but when Ryber finds the chamber they were frozen in, Eridysi and the general are gone...

Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Vivia. She's abrasive, easily annoyed and when she's told that her brother died, her reaction is to be happy that one more obstacle in her way has been removed. This being said, she's just as dedicated to the wellbeing of Nubrevna as Merik is, gives up food she's stockpiled for the poor of Lovats and is absolutely overjoyed upon learning that Merik is alive, not blaming him for his actions as Fury at all and helping him out the best she can.

 The Witchlands / int_491071bf
comment
Fantasy Counterpart Appliance: Firewitched lamps serve in place of streetlights, as they don't require fuel. Voicewitches are pretty much human telephones, connecting themselves to Voicewitches in other places and repeating words they hear from them. Iseult manages to rig her and Safi's Threadstones to fulfill a similar function, although only when Safi is asleep. Pots of Firewitched oil are used as bombs, and Merik owns a pistol where the ignition mechanism is Firewitchery rather than a chemical compound. Presumably, cannons work similarly. In Bloodwitch, Vaness has two scrolls made that act like a two-way chat, with everything written on one appearing on the other and vice versa, even wiping themselves clear once they're full.

Power Crystal: Some witches can store their powers into crystals — most commonly quartz — so that they can be used by someone without their particular form of witchery. The most common are painstones that nullify pain, and Safi tries to make a truthstone in Bloodwitch.

The Empire: The Witchlands have two: Cartorra is the biggest nation in the land, and it's developed mostly through alliances and marriages, only recently turning to war. They're one of the biggest players on the political scene, and are mostly on the villainous side, thanks to their Emperor wanting Safi as his bride. Marstok is a more benevolent variety, though they're combat monsters thanks to armies of Firewitches. They're friendlier, mostly because the Empress respects the fact that Safi is a person and not a commodity.

Fantastic Racism: The Nomatsi people are downright hated, to the point of a manhunt being started when Iseult's ethnicity is recognized by a man on the street. It's mentioned that in the Dalmotti Empire, they have the same status animals do, and while they're allowed to have settlements outside cities, they booby-trap the hell out of all roads leading to them for fear of a lynch. The Voidwitches are despised by everyone — Aeduan is routinely called a demon. Granted, Bad Powers, Bad People is true for most of them, but one could ask whether that's where the racism comes from, or if this is what the racism causes. Interestingly, all four Voidwitches seen in the series so far are either full or part Nomatsi.

Something Only They Would Say: When Aeduan was still working as a Carawen monk, he gained some fame for being able to track anything. One day, he was asked to find a missing dog named Boots — which he accepted because it was the name of his childhood pet. As it turned out, this was his father checking if that famous Bloodwitch was actually his missing son, as someone without a connection wouldn't take on something this minor.

Sanity Slippage: Merik undergoes this in Windwitch when he's maddened with grief, overcome with desire to kill his sister for her actions, and living in perpetual pain. Most notably, he goes from looking for evidence to apprehend his sister to doing the same to have a license to kill her. He manages to climb back up, though.

Talking in Your Dreams: Starting in Windwitch, Esme often hijacks Iseult's dreams to chat with her, trying to "befriend" her. Near the end of the same book, Iseult figures out how to harness her Thread with Safi to communicate with her like this. Though Iseult can be awake for it, Safi has to be asleep. Unfortunately, thanks to Esme's ever-present threat, this can't be used nearly often enough.

The Reveal: Quite a few. Safi's uncle was faking being an alcoholic all along. Iseult is a Weaverwitch like Esme, rather than a Threadwitch. Ragnor is Aeduan's father. The Hell-Bards are Cleaved witches held at bay by chains on their necks. Kullen is alive and evil. Merik is Living on Borrowed Time because of his bond to him. Owl is bonded to a mountain bat. Kullen and Stix are Paladins, and Kullen specifically used to be Bastien. Ragnor the Raider King is the Rook King's general.

Making a Splash: Waterwitches. More powerful ones, like Stix, can control all states of it and switch it between them. Mid-level, like Vivia, can use to carry them and propel themselves in the water (though not to the extent of Not Quite Flight like Airwitches can do), as well as control it like pet snakes. Low-power Tidewitches can manipulate tides to propel a boat forward when working in concert, for example.

Arc Words: There are a lot of these in the various books. In Windwitch, the rhyme about the fool brother Filip leading his blind brother Daret into the Queen Crab's nest shows up quite a few times, with Merik wondering whether he's playing the part of Filip or Daret. "Stasis" for Iseult. It's a state a Threadwitch should always be in and which she has trouble keeping to. "Initiate, complete" for Safiya and Isuelt. It describes their strategy for how to work together. The rhyme about the fury's razor and glass shows up a lot in Windwitch, and is further referenced in Bloodwitch when Kullen, as the fury, is searching for the items mentioned "Run my child, run" for Aeduan. They're the last words his mother said to him when the raiders attacked his town, a recurring memory for him

Belligerent Sexual Tension: Merik and Safi have this in spades. The first time they meet, first they're furious with each other for interfering, then they notice that the other looks nice, then Safi notices that Merik has an unbuttoned shirt and starts scolding him for it while he's irritated. Later, their journey to Lejna is filled with fights and arguments even as they're more and more attracted to one another. Iseult references the nature of this trope when she says that Threads of love and hate are very similar in colour, to the point where she sometimes can't say whether it's one or the other.

Psychic Link: Two witches who share a close bond can become Threadsiblings, linking their minds with a particularly strong Thread that survives even Cleaving. Most of the time, a Thread like this simply makes one Threadbrother or Threadsister far more aware of the other's feelings, but as it turns out, it can also keep one Threadsibling alive when they should be dead, or be harnessed for straight-up long-range telepathy, if you know what you're doing.

Establishing Character Moment: Safi's first scene has her noting to herself that she betted all of her and Iseult's money on a card game and proceeded to lose it all because her opponent was dreamy. In his first scene, Merik loses his temper at a gossip-filled dinner and storm off in haste, barely containing his fury. Safi, Iseult and Merik both react to a sailor Cleaving not by running away, but by running towards him to help stop him.

Embarrassing First Name: Cam considers Camilla to be one. Merik initially assumes that it's because Cam doesn't want anyone to know Cam's a girl, but it turns out Cam's transgender, and simply doesn't want to use a female name for himself.

Red Oni, Blue Oni: Safi is Red to Iseult's Blue. The former is impulsive, rash and self-confident, while the latter is calmer, more analytical and more prone to self-doubt. When Safi and Vaness travel together, Vaness is Blue to Safi's Red, being more of a schemer and taking everything in with quiet dignity. Merik and Kullen. The former has a Hair-Trigger Temper and is bound to flights of emotion, while the latter is calmer and has more distance to the world around him.

Bad Powers, Good People: The fourth Voidwitch in the series, Iseult, is definitely one of the good guys, and another is slowly doing a Heel–Face Turn. The Marstoki Adders are Poisonwitches, but they're also Vaness' Praetorian Guard, and she considers them practically her extended family. They're absolutely loyal and dedicated to her protection.

Superpower Lottery: Among the witches, some are more powerful than others, and some are very overpowered. Kullen is a full Airwitch capable of calling up a hurricane. Sightwitch reveals this is because he's one of the Twelve Paladins. Vaness is an Ironwitch capable of bringing down entire mountains. Esme can Cleave people across hundreds of miles. Stix is a full Waterwitch capable of controlling it in all forms of matter. As with Kullen, this is because she too is a Paladin.

comment
Foreshadowing: Early on, when Safi and Iseult go for Back-to-Back Badass, the Carawen monks hunting them note that it looks like they formed the Cahr Awen symbol. It turns out they're the last in the long line of Cahr Awen pairs. Aeduan's inability to smell Iseult, along with Iseult's inability to create Threadstones (like the Puppeteer), the mention that Threadwitches can't see each other, Aeduan noting that Cahr Awen are always a pair of an Aether- and a Voidwitch and Iseult's connection to Esme all point very clearly to Iseult being a Voidwitch, not an Aetherwitch — specifically, a Weaverwitch rather than a Threadwitch. When Esme shows Iseult how Cleaving works, she mentions that the man she uses as an example used to have a Threadbrother, and somehow the connection between them survived the Cleaving. The last Merik saw Kullen, the man was leaving because he's been Cleaved. So why does Merik feel like there's something tethering him to the Shadow Man, and how did he survive the ship's explosion? Vivia, Stix and Ryber are all women serving in the Navy and nobody makes a big deal of it, so a careful reader might question Merik's assumption that Cam's a Sweet Polly Oliver. In Bloodwitch, after the Hell-Bards save Vaness from an assassination attempt, Habim, who is a member of Eron's conspiracy and knows Safi well, has them tortured, hinting that the conspiracy isn't quite that noble in their methods, however well-intentioned they see their goals as being. Also in that book, one of Aeduan's first flashbacks mentions that his father used to have another family, a wife and two daughters, which should sound familiar if you've read Sightwitch. Then there's the fact that Aeduan's mother's called Dysi.

Fatal Flaw: Each of the four main POV characters has one that bites them in the back: Safi: recklessness. Iseult: Heroic Self-Deprecation. Merik: feeling more important than he actually is. Aeduan: trust issues.

Wound That Will Not Heal: A Cursewitched wound will not and will continue to poison you even more, which is why Iseult is in bad straits for a large chunk of Truthwitch and why Aeduan temporarily loses his Healing Factor in Bloodwitch.

What You Are in the Dark
 The Witchlands / int_afc6df04
comment
What You Are in the Dark: Two such moments at the climax of Windwitch. For Merik, it's an entire avalanche of those. After Cam leaves him, he's left all alone, free to pursue Vivia's death as he wanted. Instead, he finally admits that he's been rejecting the reality and goes to investigate. Then he has a choice of either learning valuable information or revealing himself and saving Cam. Finally, when he and Kullen hang high in the air, Kullen offers him the throne in exchenge for Vivia's death, and Merik declines. Iseult has one. When she's left all alone on the battlefield, she realizes that she could either keep on chasing Safi (something she's been doing for the entire book) or come back and help Aeduan and Owl, with the added bonus of Aeduan expecting her to leave him and Safi never having to learn about it. She ultimately choses to return.

Magical Accessory: The chain that marks a person as a Hell-Bard, called a noose, is a magical item stopping them from Cleaving fully and makes them impossible for mind-altering or mind-reading witches to influence. The paired stones on the necklaces Iseult and Safi wear starting blinking when the owner of the other one is in danger. They also allow the two to talk in Safi's dreams.

Heir Club for Men: Downplayed; while Vivia can inherit the Nubrevnan throne despite having a younger brother, the Councilmen give her a lot of grief for being a woman and try to marry her off to have a man on the throne. Vivia also notes that while there's no rule about the gender of the Council members, somehow every woman eligible to be one ends up sending her male relative in her stead, at least until the end of Windwitch.

Top God
 The Witchlands / int_b61c6d0c
comment
The seafaring nations of the Witchlands, like Nubrevna and Saldonica, share a similar pantheon. The Top God is Noden, who's associated with sea but rules over everything, and sits in the depths on a coral throne. He's served by the Hagfishes, who act as the Psychopomps. Additionally, there are two lesser deities. The Fury is the horribly scarred god of judgement and vengeance, whom people fear to worship, while Lady Baile differs from country to country — in Nubrevna, she's a benevolent deity that carries prayers from people to Noden, while in Saldonica, she has Gladiator Games dedicated to her. Sightwitch reveals that Lady Baile and the Fury were based on the Paladins Baile and her lover Bastien, who fought against the Exalted Ones.

Came Back Wrong: Kullen comes back from Cleaving with Casting a Shadow added to his powerset and a newfound desire to bring ruin to Lovats and deliver it into Ragnor's hands. Oh, and he's all but un-re-killable now. The fact that Esme was the one to Cleave him might explain this. The fact that he's one of the Twelve Paladins and may have been part of the half that did a Face–Heel Turn might, too.

Caught in a Snare
 The Witchlands / int_cd6a97e
comment
Caught in a Snare: When Iseult runs through a Nomatsi road to throw off a group of Cleaved pursuing them, she's so focused on them that she doesn't notice a snare and gets caught in it, hanging in a net from a tree branch. Fortunately for her, the road kills the other Cleaved, and she has her knife to cut herself free.

comment
Chekhov's Gunman: The Chiseled Cheater, the man to whom Safi lost money, which started the whole mess in the first place, shows up again in Windwitch, and turns out to be an officer of the Hell-Bards. Ryber, Kullen's girlfriend, shows up again at the end of Windwitch to accompany Merik on his journey, and she implies that she knows far more than she should about Voidwitchery. Ryber is the protagonist of the prequel Sightwitch, which reveals that she's the last of the Sightwitches, and that she's on a quest to prevent the end of the world. Early on, Iseult mentioned that when she ran away from home, she was rescued by a Carawen monk. That monk eventually shows up in the form of Evrane. In Truthwitch, Safi meets one of Merik's crewmembers, who contemptuously calls her "'Matsi-loving scum" for her friendship with Iseult. In Windwitch, she meets the same man in a Saldonica prison, and he tells her that Merik is dead. During a dinner party in Truthwitch, Merik thinks with annoyance that everyone's partying and gossiping and completely ignoring important things, such as a new king rising in the ruins of the Former Republic of Arithuania. This new king is none other than the Big Bad.

Fantasy Pantheon
 The Witchlands / int_df1a0454
comment
Fantasy Pantheon: The seafaring nations of the Witchlands, like Nubrevna and Saldonica, share a similar pantheon. The Top God is Noden, who's associated with sea but rules over everything, and sits in the depths on a coral throne. He's served by the Hagfishes, who act as the Psychopomps. Additionally, there are two lesser deities. The Fury is the horribly scarred god of judgement and vengeance, whom people fear to worship, while Lady Baile differs from country to country — in Nubrevna, she's a benevolent deity that carries prayers from people to Noden, while in Saldonica, she has Gladiator Games dedicated to her. Sightwitch reveals that Lady Baile and the Fury were based on the Paladins Baile and her lover Bastien, who fought against the Exalted Ones. The Nomatsi worship a protective deity called the Moon Mother. Sightwitch introduces the sleeping goddess Sirmaya, hinted to be keeping the world in existence. And she's in danger of dying, which is very bad.

The Power of Blood: A Bloodwitch like Aeduan can distinguish a person by the smell of their blood and then track them down even across the sea. They can also control blood in people's veins; while it doesn't work to the same extent as bloodbending, it lets Aeduan freeze people in place and kill them by stopping their blood from flowing.

Advanced Ancient Acropolis: The city of Lovats, while still occupied, has several ancient features which the current society doesn't seem capable of creating. Most notably, it's pretty much unconquerable because of massive water bridges that are its only connection to the mainland — and then there's the rumoured undercity, a giant aglomeration built beneath regular Lovats.

Calling the Old Man Out: In Bloodwitch, Vivia finally calls her father out on his megalomania and the way he constantly dismisses her, trying to take the royal power back from her despite ostensibly passing it on, and treating her like a dumb child. She feels horrid about it (him being quite adept at manipulating her), but decides that the good of Nubrevna is more important than his ego.

Laser-Guided Amnesia: 1,000 years before, most of the Twelve Paladins, a set of extremely powerful witches who reincarnate upon death, were killed with a weapon that prevented them from remembering their past lives upon their next rebirth.

Sympathetic P.O.V.: We're first introduced to Aeduan as a terrifying monster from hell. His POV changes that view immensely. In Truthwitch, Merik has a lot to say about his sister, none of it good, and her actions make her look like an Evil Princess. She gets POV sections in Windwitch, and we find out she considers Merik to be a borderline Evil Prince.

The Generation Gap: Because the Witchlands have been at peace for the past twenty years, there's an entire generation that's never known war (labelled the "Truce Children"), while their parents and grandparents have fought it most of their lives. This leads to a lack of understanding between the two groups, as the older generations consider war returning to be inevitable while many Truce Children still try to prevent it or don't understand what they're getting into.

In the end, neither does.

comment
Too Much Information: When Kullen tells Merik that his wild bursts of Windwitchery are connected to his attraction to Safi, he starts talking about the times he and Ryber were having sex, and Merik is quick to change the topic.

Creepy Child: Esme is a teenager, probably younger than Iseult, who serves as The Dragon and has no trouble Cleaving dozens of people just because she feels like it.

Enemy Civil War
 The Witchlands / int_f52ae5d8
comment
Enemy Civil War: Near the end of Windwitch, when the Baedyeds and the Red Sails are both searching for Owl, they each grow convinced that the other is about to betray them somehow to take the prize for themselves, and end up in a battle that makes it easier for Iseult and Aeduan to escape with both groups' target.

Darkest Hour
 The Witchlands / int_f91d1d4f
comment
Darkest Hour: Merik spends the better part of Windwitch on the verge of Despair Event Horizon, but what almost sends him beyond it is Cam leaving him after declaring that he's too self-absorbed and fighting windmills. He almost gives in to his Fury persona before his worry for Cam and his sister's interference pull him back.

Faking the Dead: Merik is presumed dead after his ship is blown up, and he chooses not to correct this assumption, noting that being dead has its advantages.

Foe Romance Subtext: Safi's annoyed to find out that the Chiseled Cheater — now revealed to be a Hell-Bard officer on the hunt for her — is still very attractive. They eventually grow to be friends of sorts.

comment
Well-Intentioned Extremist: Vivia turns to piracy, risking breaking the Truce too early, because the people of Nubrevna have to eat, no matter where the food comes from. In Bloodwitch, it's revealed that Eron's conspiracy intends to keep the peace in the Witchlands by assassinating everyone who might try to start a war again, namely the leaders of the various empires, regardless of those rulers' potential morality. Safi is not happy when she finds out.

Crisis of Faith: Aeduan has one when he starts to wonder whether Safi and Iseult could be the Cahr Awen. Eventually, he realizes that he doesn't believe the doctrine of his own faith anymore and becomes an atheist of sorts.

Beauty Is Never Tarnished: Averted; Safi is bruised and beaten in many a fight, and when her nose is broken, she notes that because they have neither a surgeon on hand nor a healer, it's going to stay crooked for the rest of her life.

Dark and Troubled Past
 The Witchlands / int_fed93e1b
comment
Dark and Troubled Past: Oh, boy. Iseult ran away from home shortly after Corlant started taking an unhealthy interest in her mother, and nearly died before she was discovered by a Carawen monk. She had to leave the monastery as well, and then almost died again before Safi saved her and they became Threadsisters. All the time, she had to manage the copious amounts of Fantastic Racism that all Nomatsi face — in the Dalmotti Empire, they're considered animals. Aeduan apparently used to live in a Nomatsi settlement before something happened that made him terrified of fire, killed his mother and caused him to flee. He was found by a Carawen monk and joined the monastery, but he was ostracized there for being a Bloodwitch. At some point later, his father roped him into his schemes and convinced him that Aeduan should accept being a demon. Cam grew up in a gang, and his brother wanted him to become another gangster. Adding to that, he's biologically a woman, and everyone in the Nines think that he's just pretending to be a boy for laughs. He joined the Navy to escape the life of crime, but it caught up with him anyway.

Legacy of the Chosen: The Cahr Awen are pairs of witches appearing in various periods of history and performing great deeds, including awakening dead Origin Wells. Safi and Iseult are the latest in the long line.
