Back to Joshua Levi

Sarah is Joshua's eldest child, born before he was gauntletted, while the family was still living at their home covenant outside of Jerulium. Her earliest memories, though, are of the long move across Europe to their new home in England. A few shiny babbles to keep her destracted turned into a passion, and she quickly even her talented father's abilities in the carving and cutting of stones. Furthermore, her pieces carry a soul of artistic value that is sometimes lost in Joshua's more technical work.

Animals naturally shy away (or plainly run away) from the young Sarah, leading Joshua to closely watch her for signs of the Gift, but so far no such signs have appeared and he is beginning to consider it unlikely. Like all of Ruth and Joshua's family, Sarah is literate and has an exceptional memory for what she reads.
