Fisher Half Circle Paradise River

Alemi, originally of Half-Circle Sea Hold, is the son of Yanus Sea Holder and brother of Menolly. He became a Master Fisher at Paradise River Sea Hold and was crucial in the rediscovery of the Dolphincraft.


He was the closest with Menolly out of all her siblings. Alemi developed a close friendship with Elgion, the Sea Hold's Harper, when Alemi broke his leg in a storm. When Alemi taught the Harper to sail, Elgion deduced the truth about Menolly. It was recorded that he heard reed pipes coming from one of the caves; neither of them suspected at the time that it could be Menolly.

Alemi is also the only one of Half-Circle Sea Hold who was in favor of sending out a search party for Menolly and couldn't understand his father's anger about her «tuning», a sentiment which probably encouraged his friendship with Elgion. Alemi also reported seeing Fire Lizards by the Dragon Stones, a sighting which was proved by Menolly.

Personality and traits

He was willing to try new things, not as hidebound as his father.
