Eraph is an aged Kasiri woman of the Longspur krait, the mate of Torva the Goldthief. She is tough as old oak and isn't afraid to speak her mind. When she finds Scarlet sullenly warming himself by a fire at the Nerit encampment, she tells him haughtily that she wouldn't be warming her bones by a campfire when she could have them warmed in the furs of a handsome atya (Liall). Scarlet ignores her and Eraph returns the courtesy.
