Abridged Guide to Evil Wikia

"On her back there was a quiver and almost absurdly large longbow strapped, but the weapon she had out was the longknife in her hand"
―Chapter 24: Archer


While the role of archer does not lean to either good or evil, the Named is not shackled by the same constraints such as backlash for not adhering to Roles.


The Name offers increased strength as well as durability, but the primary physical benefits of this name are in flexibility as well as speed. By focusing on speed the named is able to employ the use of short swords for combat using quick strikes to overwhelm enemies. The Name also decreases noise made by the user similar to Hunter. Finally the user has increased observation skills and can locate enemies before the user is located.

As the Archer, Indrani is one of the most fearsome combatants in the Grand Alliance, able to fight to a draw with the Red Knight, one of the physically strongest Named among the Truce and the Terms.
