|Pure One; Prisoner of the Pure Ones|
- Smutty is a prisoner of a Pure Ones. Being a Lesser Sooty Owl, he is the lowest ranked Pure One, given an offensive name. When Nyroc has his special ceremony, he is shocked when he learns that he has to kill Phillip, his best friend. He refuses, telling Nyra that he thought it would be a fox, or even Smutty. Nyra says that it would have been too easy, as he hadn't even met Smutty.
