bitterness and pain since their divorce, but Ghet still cares for and
loves him deeply and is concerned for his welfare. She hopes, though
she has no confidence in it, that one day they can go back to being
sister and Callan's wife. For several years, Ghet and An'Thaya were
completely estranged, the strain around Galain simply too much to take.
Both time and Ghet's remarriage have made a remarkable difference. It

Ghetsuhm likes her so much. Years spent Musketelving and causing
trouble at family parties have given Foxx a special place in Ghet's heart.
Her special place in Ghet's son Marius' heart is another, more

Shadow is Y'Roden's adopted daughter, and Shady and Ghet's mutual
affection for him has become the main force that holds their friendship
largely down to Y'Roden that Ghet and Callan have become such good
friends.When they first met, on the Lissė Nwalme, Ghet found him
entertaining, but didn't trust him as far as she could spit him. These
days, he's one of the first people she'd turn to in a crisis. He knows
too much about her and Ro to be shut out.
He's still damn entertaining, and Ghet isn't entirely sure why she doesn't find him sexually attractive.
Ghetsuhm's son by
Galain. In a way. Thanks to an accident early in her
Starfleet career, Ghet couldn't have children. Some time after her
second marriage, squabbling gods caused Ghet's spirit to be transferred
to the body of a Roman Vestal Virgin. Galain found her, and
it never occured to either of them that the borrowed body wouldn't share
her own immunity to Galain's little curse. Marius was the result.
He was raised by the Vestal
once she returned to her own body, and the husband Ghet acquired for
her. He never met either of his real parents until adulthood, when
his mother's death sent him looking for answers.
Marius is the ultimate answer
to the "nature versus nurture" debate.

native tongue, "Rhagi" means "joy from pain".
It would be hard to find a more appropriate name for Ghet's second son.

Rhagi was conceived. Despite the trauma of the event, and the
friction he caused in their respective marriages, Y'Roden and Ghet both
adore their son. He shared his time between Y'Roden's home in
S'Hea, and Ghet's at Riker's, until his parents' marriage united the
whole family in Nenlante.

secure a legitimate heir for S'Hea. The attempted genetic manipulation
failed due to Ro's aggressive blood, and Ghet bore twins that were
almost polar opposites. R'Avyen, the stronger, more aggressive child,
is the Crown Prince of S'Hea.

drug addict and sensationalist, she made Ghetsuhm's life hell for many
years, including sleeping with Chase, before she was badly injured and
Ghetsuhm committed her to the care of a remote medical facility. There
she was kept in stasis and experimented on by a succession of medical
directors for nearly a thousand years before she managed to escape and make
her way to Berelath, where she met Galain's son Avathar.
These days, Ghet has no idea where Jellhi is, and prefers to pretend she doesn't exist.
