Juri

Missing Philosophical Warrior of Amber

The abyss reaches out for you
but it cannot claim you
unless you open your heart
to the darkness
you must ride the whirlwind
and trust in others
as you have not before
for some tasks
are too much
for a single soul
-- From the Prophecies of the Serpent

Juri has remained missing for forty years, beyond the power of even the might of Amber to find her. Only the occassional 'Juri sighting' has taken place, and investigations of her trail always went cold. But now, since her rescue of Princess Jacqueline in the aftermath of Jacqui's own assisting in the rescuing of Morgan from House Alars, it seems likely she will soon be returned to her family.

Assuming the Universe isn't destroyed first.

Juri has become commander of the military forces of the legendary floating island city of Cathuria, and seems to be destined to face Hel, Queen of the Dead, a Sanjiyan who rules over another Amber which will soon come into conjunction with our own. It is said she will need Merehallow for this task, for only with it can she slay Hel.

The Day of the Dead is coming....

The Day of the Dead came. Juri came, she saw, she was fired out of a torpedo tube at Hel, and she slew Hel, liberating the billions upon billions of souls Hel had trapped within the Jewel of Judgement.

Unfortunately, that same day, both her daughter and grand-daughter perished. She seems quite shaken by this.

Current Children

Historical Notes

There is some reason to believe that Haruka's five children, if they had all lived to maturity, might have become the Children of the Elements of that era, with Juri as the Child of Metal, but this did not come to pass. Juri's affinity for that Element in the arts of war was extremely noteable, given her service to Amber for several long terms as Marshal. She was a sharp, strong, blade forged in the fires of adversity, and continues to be fondly remembered by various members of her family, who hope for her eventual return.
