Silverfox, the Rhivi Reborn

MoI, Dramatis Personae


'She (Silverfox) was created within the influence of a T'lan Imass – its timeless warren became the binding threads, and were so woven by an Imass bonecaster – a bonecaster of flesh and blood, Korlat. This child belongs to the T’lan Imass. She may well be clothed in the flesh of a Rhivi, and she may well contain the souls of two Malazan mages, but she is now a Soletaken, and more – a Bonecaster. And even these truths but brush the edges of what she will become.'

- The Mhybe

MoI, uk mmpb p. 106, UK Trade, p.67


'She has done a terrible wrong, sir, yet upon her shoulders it weighs nothing...There is no war within her...They walk in agreement, sir. She is calm within.'

- Itkovian on Silverfox

MoI, UK Trade, p.642


'Disparate spirits are united in their resolve! A spirit of hard edges, to hold the others to their course despite all the pain that others must bear (Nightchill). Another spirit, to clasp hard the hurt of abandonment until it can find proper answer! (Tattersail) And yet a third spirit, filled with love and compassion – if somewhat witless, granted (Bellurdan) – to so flavour the pending moment. And a fourth, possessing the power to achieve the necessary reparation of old wounds—’

Quick Ben: '...Who’s the fourth in Silverfox?’

Kruppe: '‘Why, the seed-child of a T’lan Imass Bonecaster, of course. Pran Chole’s daughter, the one whose true name is indeed the one by which we all know her!’

- Kruppe on Silverfox

MoI, UK Trade, p.644



Silverfox's birth :

'Soul-shifting is a delicate thing. The woman (Tattersail) was consumed in a conflagration. Her soul's first flight was carried on wings of pain and violence. More, she entered another ravaged body, bearing its own traumas (Nightchill). The child that is born will be like no other ever seen. Its life is a mystery, Kruppe'.

- K'rul to Kruppe on Silverfox

GoM, UK mmpb, p.358


"Then a small cry rose into the still air, and the Rhivi lifted in her arms a child furred in silver.

Even as Kruppe watched, the fur sloughed away. (...) Pran Chole strode to stand beside Kruppe and the Elder God. The T'lan looked exhausted. 'The child drew from me power beyond my control', he said softly."

GoM, UK mmpb, p.359

"a bonecaster of flesh and blood, Korlat."

What? Must be a typo, Korlat's Tiste Andii

The context of that quote was a conversation between the Mhybe and Korlat.

I forget, what happened to Silverfox, did she walk off and join the battle in Assail? Does she ever return to the series after Memories of Ice?

I've been trying to figure that out, too. I'm on The Bonehunters and have yet to hear of her again. Anyone know?
