“"You'd be surprised at how powerful HOPE can be."”
—Councillor Terik, in Book 1: Keeper
Terik serves on the Council. He is also the only Descryer (so far) 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. He descryed Sophie in Book 1, and said that her potential was "interesting".
Councillor Terik has wavy brown hair and cobalt blue eyes. At the end of Lodestar, Terik is said to need a prosthetic leg after the collapse of the castle. Oralie later confirms this by telling Sophie and her friends that "he wants it to be like his real leg".
