Oralie, to Sophie in Book 4: Neverseen
Councillor Oralie is one of the 12 councillors in the Elvin world. She is an Empath and uses her ability to ensure Sophie is telling the truth when she is on Tribunal since nobody can read Sophie's mind. She was also one of the original three Councillors to meet Sophie Foster. She then, during that time, proceeded to vote in favor of Sophie being allowed to stay in the Elvin world and attend Foxfire. Kenric (another councillor) liked Oralie before his death. Oralie might also be a Conjurer, shown when she was able to pull Kenric's cache out of its 'pocket' in space, but it's possible that Oralie had a Conjurer help her make a place for the cache similar to what Edaline did for Sophie. She also conjures away Mr. Forkle's body in Lodestar. She gives Kenric's cache to Sophie and becomes her contact with the Council while Sophie is living with the Black Swan. Oralie was demoted to pointless tasks for the council because she gave Sophie Kenric's cache without council permission. She gave Exillium the funding it needed to be a proper school again. Both Sophie and Fitz have access to her Imparter. Oralie is one of Sophie's strongest supporters on the Council, more so than any of the others. She knows quite a bit about the Black Swan, and out of all the councillors, currently has the most personal connection with Sophie. This is shown particularly in Neverseen and Lodestar, during the various times that Sophie shares secrets with her. In Lodestar, she arranges a meeting for Mr. Forkle and Sophie with Gethen.
Oralie has rosy cheeks, with long golden ringlets, and is described as delicate in features but is a tough person. She often had blood-shot eyes and large bags under them after Kenric's death.
Oralie and Kenric were a set of Councillors that seemed to be deeply in love, despite the rules prohibiting councillors from being romantically involved. The loss of Councillor Kenric was a devastation to Oralie. Sophie often suspected that they were in love, but couldn't be publicly involved or they would have had to step down as Councillors.
Oralie lives in one of the crystal Councillor's castles. It has pink flowers lining the path, and contains large amounts of pink furniture. She used to live next to Kenric, but now lives next to Alina. She isn't very fond of this housing arrangement.
