Tungit is a Merikit shaman-elder, as well as the son of a shaman himself. He appears at the various Merikit religious rituals all the way though Seeker's Mask, To Ride a Rathorn, Bound in Blood, and Honor's Paradox.
- ↑ 1.0 1.1 Seeker's Mask, "Part VIII: Kithorn" — " 'when you studied the Merikit some eighty years ago, didn't you have a special crony among them? He was a shaman's son, I think.' 'All right!' said Index again. 'Yes, yes, yes! Tungit.' "
- ↑ Bound in Blood, "Chapter XIV: Two Chests", IV — "Index turned out to know a lot less about Merikit society in general than Jame had hoped. He had spent all his time with the shaman Tungit studying those rituals practiced by the Merikit men."
