Éû was a squirrel oracle, alchemist and Magister on the Auré Assembly, the governing council of the Ildré. After the discovery of the Foretoken at Nezérun, he came to the realization that a horrific doom was imminent upon the world. That prophecy came to pass exactly one year later in the form of the cataclysmic Firefalls that brought about the end of Ildré supremacy in the Westing Lands.
