Jame's narration, Bound in Blood,
"Chapter V: Fractures", II

Higbert is a Caineron Highborn: Higron's son, Caldane's grandson.[2]

He is a randon cadet at Tentir. He's friends with Fash and Vant.[3][4]

During their autumn at Tentir, Fash and Higbert threw Drie into the Silver.[5]

Higbert had own ten-command until the autumn cull, when it was taken apart. He and his old Five, his cousin Tigger, were put in their uncle Gorbel's ten-command.[2]

Tigger loves to torment him.[2] In Bound in Blood, there in an episode where Gorbel's ten-command is late to scythe-arms class because Higbert fell into the manure pit, and he claims Tigger pushed him.[6] Later in that class, Dure, also in their ten-command, puts his trock in Higbert's cloths, and Higbert has a complete breakdown, and proceeds to blame Jame for it.[7]

Later that year, Higbert and Fash try to get Bear killed.[8]

Near the end of Honor's Paradox, he takes part in Gorbel's challenging Jame, along with Fash and Obidin.[9]
