The girl later known as Felisin (also called Felisin Younger) was an orphan of no more than eleven or twelve years of age who lived in Raraku.[1] Because she had had no one to speak for her in her naming rites, she did not have a name.[2]

Initially, Felisin rarely spoke, but when she did it was with the words of a poet.[3] She was skilled at braiding flowers.[4]

In Deadhouse GatesEdit

The orphan girl was the first person Felisin Paran met upon arriving at the Raraku oasis. Wearing a leather vest stitched with overlapping bronze coins as protection, she acted as a sentry and blocked the road holding her spear. Leoman waved her aside as he informed Felisin of the girl's orphaned status.[5]

Upon adopting her, Sha'ik Reborn gave the girl the name "Felisin".[6][7]

In House of ChainsEdit

Heboric thought of her as Felisin Younger although that was not a name he would mention to the girl.[8] He and Toblakai set themselves up as Felisin Younger's protectors[9] but even so, Felisin was lured into a trap by Silgar and ritually abused and circumcised by Bidithal. Despite her ordeal, she sought to hide this from her adoptive mother, who needed the mage's power.[10] Sha'ik Reborn's love and concern for her daughter was supressed by the Whirlwind Goddess so she failed to notice her disappearance.[11]

On the eve of the Battle of Raraku, High Mage L'oric sent Felisin to safety along with Heboric, Scillara, and L'oric's familiar, Greyfrog. Upon Karsa's return from his journey to the Jhag Odhan, he sought out Bidithal and Silgar and killed them both.[12]

Felisin's party made their way out of Raraku where they were approached by Iskaral Pust. The High Priest of Shadow brought them to Tesem. Cotillion convinced Cutter to become Felisin's protector much as Baudin had been the protector of her namesake.[13]

In The BonehuntersEdit

After the rebellion, Felisin Younger fled the Holy Desert with the help of Heboric and Cutter only to be captured by The Unbound T'lan Imass.[14] She was brought to the ancient city of Hanar Ara where she held court as Sha'ik Reborn.[15]


"...she could only conjure visions [of paradise] that matched what now embraced her, her every want answered without hesitation, without judgement. Perhaps it would be like that – for everyone. But if everyone would know such an existence, then where were the servants?"
―Felisin Younger as Sha'ik Reborn[src]
