The Randir cadet was clad in dress grays with her gilded swamp adder Addy draped around her neck like a golden torque.
Jame's narration, The Sea of Time,
"Chapter IV: Red Dust", II

Addy is Shade's gilded swamp adder, given to her by Lady Rawneth.[2]

Addy only bites once, and that is when she is possessed by Rawneth. She strikes at Jame, but Shade throws up her hand and gets bitten instead.[3]


  1. To Ride a Rathorn, "Chapter IX: School Days", I — " 'It's a gilded swamp adder!' someone exclaimed."
  2. To Ride a Rathorn, "Chapter IX: School Days", I — " 'You Randir have odd tastes,' the Falconer said dryly.' 'It was a gift from my mistress.' 'Dear Lady Rawneth. That explains everything.' "
  3. Bound in Blood, "Chapter V: Fractures", III — "The eyes too were black, all pupil, and hideously knowing. […] The strike itself was so fast that Jame hardly saw it, only the serpent drawing back with a hiss while Shade more slowly withdrew her hand to stare in disbelief at the punctures on the palm and back. 'She's never done that before,' the Randir said. […] Addy's flailing quieted. Her black eyes contracted back to their usual fierce, unblinking orange."
