Terik serves on the Council. He is also the only Descryer in the Elvin world. His ability allows him to sense potential. He sees it as a great burden, because parents often want to know their children's potential, but children sometimes do not live up to it.
Councillor Terik has wavy brown hair and cobalt blue eyes. At the end of Lodestar, Keefe said that when he saw Terik after the Summit, it looked like he might have to get a prosthetic leg because of his injuries.
