Jonah d’Havelstrum is a theologian and translator for the University of Wyvar, specializing in identifying the former personae of Vestiges. His work is highly problematic within the Ascendant church, as it requires to make contract with the shattered and maddening minds that still lurk the Loom. He has published several treatises on the subject, though claims to have never actually tapped into the power of a Vestige to work magic. He is interested in contemporary cults of Vestiges, hoping that their more intimate contact with the broken gods might help advance his work without he himself having to wander too closely to the madness.
Jonah is the second-born son of a minor noble house, though this is of little benefit to him in his current academic position. Jonah has a scar on his face, the result of a reportedly savage attack from one of his family’s slaves while Jonah was a boy, though Jonah never talks about it.
