Yan Tovis (Twilight) was an Atri-Preda in the Letherii Army at Fent Reach. She was considered the best commander since Preda Unnutal Hebaz. After the Edur invasion, she deserted and rejoined her people, the Shake. She was told that her mother had died which meant she had inherited the title of Queen to the Shake. She was re-united with her brother Yedan Derryg (The Watch).
Yan Tovis travelled with her people to the Isle of Second Maiden Fort. Their ferry got into trouble near Third Maiden Fort and they were rescued by two Perish Thrones of War who safely conveyed them to their destination. Yan Tovis claimed her right as Queen, replacing Shake Brullyg.
Sandalath Drukorlat tried to persuade Yan Tovis to take on the role of Queen of Kharkanas however, Yan Tovis refused, stating that the realm of the Shake was and is the Shore, thus jeopardizing the budding friendship between them.
Yan Tovis felt compelled on all sides to kneel to the Shore but put off to doing so.
