The Psy/Changeling Character Guide

One of the most complex, involved series is Nalini Singh’s Psy/Changelings.  Three distinct races, and many, many characters.  This is my attempt to keep track of who is who, and where they belong.  Two of the strongest Changeling packs in North America are the DarkRiver Leopards, controlling the San Francisco area, and the SnowDancer Wolf Pack, in control of the rest of California.  The icy and emotionless Psy are under the control of a powerful council of seven…seven beings with very different goals.  And some of the humans, often thought to be the weakest of the three races, have decided to level the playing field.

- The Packs -

To this point, the Psy/Changeling series has focused exclusively on the two dominant Changeling Packs – DarkRiver and SnowDancer.  However, the Changeling world is broad, and Nalini has promised to expand her stories to include other packs in the next story-arc.

- DarkRiver -

DarkRiver is the dominant leopard changeling pack in the United States, in control of San Francisco and the surrounding areas.  They are a powerful pack, but young, with many cubs and juveniles under their protection.  An uneasy alliance with the SnowDancer wolf changeling pack has matured into a rock-solid alliance under the guidance and protection of Alpha Lucas Hunter and his Sentinels.

- The Psy -

Known to be icily controlled, practical, and impossible to push to violence, the Psy are the leaders of government and business. All of their decisions are based on logic and efficiency…or, they are supposed to be.  But Silence, the very institution meant to keep them sane, is on the verge of collapse.  They were led by the Psy-council…these wealthy, the powerful and the influential Psy had their own agendas – and were not known for playing nice. While still considered leaders of finance and industry, the fall of Silence has changed the landscape of the Psy forever.

- Psy Designations -

To date, several Psy designations and sub-designations have been explored in the Psy/Changeling world. This list of common Psy designations is taken mostly from Nalini Singh’s official website.

Tk  – Telekinesis. Some are teleportation capable, other are not. Power levels vary, but the strongest of the Tk can travel across the world with a thought, move mountains, or cause natural disasters that could alter the face of the world forever.

  • Tk-Cell: A Tk-Cell has the ability to move things at the cellular level. Some are capable of doing this to their own bodies.
  • Tk-V: Also known as “Travelers” these Psy are true teleporters and can go from location to location in the blink of an eye. Travelers are extremely, extremely rare.

Tp – Telepathy. There are many sub-designations of Tp, but the strongest are very rare and usually have positions of power in government or industry.

E – Empath. Not recognized as a designation with the rise of Silence, E-Psy have the ability to sense and heal emotional hurts.

J – Justice. Has the ability to enter a mind and retrieve memories, and then pass those memories on to others. Most often used in the legal world to apprehend and convict criminals.

M – Medical. M-Psy have different specializations. The most well-known of their abilities is the power to see inside a body and diagnose illness. Some M-Psy at the far end of the scale have the capacity to see down to the DNA level. An unknown fraction of M-Psy can actually heal, but that healing appears to be limited to low-level injuries (broken bones, cuts etc).

F – Foresight. These powerful Psy have spent years forecasting for business, but the ability to see into the future can also be used to save lives.

  • B: Backsight. This is a variation of Foresight which is the ability to see events of the past.

Ps – Psychometry. This is the ability to gain information or memories by touching objects.

X -  X-Psy have the ability to produce cold-fire/X-fire, which can burn things to ash within microseconds. The power has the capacity to build until it reaches synergy. This is a very rare designation as most X-Psy do not survive into adulthood.

    Hi Kaleigha!
    Such a great and devoted work! I love this character guide, it help me to understand Psy-Changeling series, and refresh my memory too!
    Btw, I post the link for this character guide in Nalini Singh’s fanpage at Facebook.
    I hope you okay with that :)

  2. THANK YOU LOVE IT.

  3. Great work! It’s really helpful since I get confused on certain details sometimes. Now that Kiss of Snow came out, there should be TONS of additional info to add!

  4. vmailer said:

    nice compilation…

    i have a question on aden and vasic though…

    if both are arrows and vasic is the tk-v in hostage to pleasure, then the field medic who also had the “assassin” look according to mercy might be aden, correct? (p280 as an m-psy with ability to heal certain injuries…) wouldn’t that make aden’s first appearance as hortage to pleasure instead of blaze of memory?

    if one adds in the spoiler in kiss of snow, then while vasic is the teleporter, then aden is an M-psy arrow with telepathy skills? and that aden is with vasic on the resistance(?)

    just curious…

    on a joking light hearted note:
    ben sure gets along well with marlee (“uncle judd” in carressed by ice, and a quick mention through keenan’s recounting in hostage to pleasure)
    and keenan and noor might jump the gun when hormones hit (blaze of memory)

    anyway, very nice job on the compilation…

    • kaleigha said:

      You’re right, it very well might be Aden. It is rare for there to be any random characters in the series. I should email Nalini and ask her…

  5. I don’t believe Adria and Martin are actually mated. I think they are just in a relationship. They have been off and on for years and he won’t accept of dominance which seems necessary for the mating to take place.

  6. thanks for this wiki – this info is great!

    Question: can we make suggestions for additions/changes?

    Thanks,
    LJ

    • kaleigha said:

      Thanks, Kaykay. I don’t mind suggestions at all…as long as I can swing it I will try to accommodate. Thanks agani.

      • I don’t know how to send you a DM, or I would have. SnowDancer is also the largest changeling pack in the United States (from KoS). Just thought it might be a fun piece of trivia to add. Thanks,
        Kaykay

      • Thanks, KayKay. Surprised I missed it, so thanks for the reminder.

  7. Kaleigha-
    First of all, thank you for doing this amazing labor of love! It’s so cool to be able to separate out the various references and bit players who become major forces as the series goes on. I think Aden’s (and Vasic’s) first appearance was in HtP, though, not BoM – they kept Dorian alive…

    • Hey mle. You know, I wondered about that myself., but where they weren’t referred to by name I wasn’t sure if I should count it as their first official appearance or not. Might give it a change, though.

  8. Hallio im a new reader but im hooked. Im on clays story now but im dieing to know wat a x-psy is?
    it wont stop eating me till i know, this seemed a good place to ask that question.

    • Hey shene – no problem, as long as you don’t mind spoilers for Kiss of Snow? If you don’t mind knowing ahead, an X-Psy is one that contains and controls a type of super-powered cold fire, able to virtually turn anyone and anything in its’ path to ash in an instant. Very cool, but very hard to control.

      • ooh nope i don’t mind the spoilers :P it just gears me up to read it x3 ooh zeen..it sort of reminds me of like jean grey and her denigration thingy, with her fire theme ;p, thanks u lots but one more thing wat does the “X” stand for?

      • I don’t actually remember if they gave what it officially stood for…I don’t think they did.

  9. Is there any ages for Dev, Katya and Ashaya?

  10. Forgot to say this is great, thanks for doing it!

  11. Thanks! I may email Nalini and ask her. I guess she’s never said it in interviews or blogs ect. I’m just too curious, lol.

  12. Of course! I tweeted her lol. If no reply, I’ll try an email. Also if anyone else has any luck as well that’ll be good. Maybe if more people enquire she’ll more likely answer.

    • kaleigha said:

      Thanks!

      • Nalini said on twitter she doesn’t have her notes at hand for exact ages but early 30s for Dev and late 20s for Ashaya/Amara. I think she missed Katya though, lol. If Katya was Ashaya’s assistant I guess she’s probably in her mid or early 20s. Anyways, I asked Nalini to clarify for Katya as well.

      • kaleigha said:

        Thanks for checking back, Angel. I will add the ages when I update with the Tangle of Need info.

  13. Nalini said early 20s for Katya. Got my friend to tweet and ask.

    • kaleigha said:

      Nice! I have to admit, Dev came in as younger than I expected.

      • I thought Dev was more in the late mid to late 30s personally especially since he is the Director of Shine. But in this world I noticed they tend to be successful and in positions (even in the Psy council) of power quite young.

      • kaleigha said:

        I figured the same…he seemed much older, for sure.

  14. But I’m glad he is in his early 30s since Katya is early 20s. Late 30s would put like 15+ years difference between him and her, hehe (not that I mind age differences but anyways). So yeah happy with their ages.

  15. I think also he seemed older because of how he kept his emotions in check and had to grow up fast with his hard childhood and being a soildier and needing to make tough decisons as Director.

  16. So basically I’m not that surprised his is younger than expected. Kinda like Sienna, she’s young in age but seems older in spirit because of what she went through.

  17. Wow! Awesome job!

  18. If its ok, I just finished KoS yesterday, so I was able to find what the ‘X’ stands for in X-Psy. Chapter 28: ” “Some people sas its from the Latin word excardesco, which means ‘to blaze up’ …. I thinks ‘rage’ is also another way it can be defined” ”
    Hope that helps

  19. Page Owner your Awesome ! Keep it up :)

  20. Hi,

    Are you planning to update this with the WindHaven group and add other characters mentioned in KoS?

    • Hi Marina – I have added all of the Kiss of Snow characters (if I missed any then feel free to let me know), but I didn’t do a pack breakdown for Windhaven at the beginning since there is so little known about them as yet.

      • Hi Kaleigha. I love the update.For some reason it reminds me a lot of my goodreads review notes.Weird.Will you be adding the Tk-cell designation etc. for some of the Arrows? Also, I could have sworn the Rats had a pack name…no?

      • Hey marinamoon…Good to know I am not the only one who gets OCD on these things. I hadn’t thought about adding the TK-cell designations to the info at the start, but I think I have them added under each character’s listings in the guide itself. If you caught anything I missed, let me know (the update on this one took a while, but the Immortals After Dark one took FOREVER).

  21. Your not you have a whole goodreads NS book lovers group on this with magnifying glasses.Shudders.Sometimes you guys scare me lol.I am mild OCD compared to you all.Grins. I feel that info may confuse readers and its easier to read the top section instead of looking for each mem by name.What if you don’t remember the characters name.I hope I am making sense.You have my full support.I am still working on editing my own list from your stuff and the goodreads group lists.Like i said i am still editing. Groans.

  22. Hi, not to nitpick but Islas, Clays mother, last name was not Bennet. He changed his last name after he got out of juvie, and at that time Isla was already dead. What his last name was before he changed it is not mentioned.

    Other than that great page. :)

  23. First of all, wow, amazing reference page. I can’t imagine how long it took you to do this.

    Small-ish thing regarding the timeline. Kiss of Snow and Tangle of Need both took place in 2081. It’s a (slight) assumption with Kiss of Snow since I didn’t see any dates mentioned in it, but Tangle of Need starts with a reference to the year.

    Still, amazing job!

    • kaleigha said:

      Thanks, Erin. I did have to do the whole estimate thing sometimes in the timeline, so thanks for letting me know.

  24. Munchkin said:

    I do believe that Aden is the one with the guantlet not Vasic. :)

  25. Hi Kaleigha, thanks for an amazing amount of information you have gathered, very helpful and informative. I came across your page looking for one with key facts (a bit like the timeline you have at the start) listing (hopefully with detail) key events like in ToN Ch 57 when the Anchors get killed and part of the PsyNet fails. Any idea if something like this exists?
    Thanks again, Sally

    • Hey Sally – thanks very much. I haven’t come across a breakdown like that in my hunting, but it would be interesting. If you do come across one, would give a shout back?

      • Oh well, looks like I’ll just have to read them all myself again (sigh! :D) and create it myself ;) If I do I’ll shout out.

  26. MJ Hunter said:

    When will this site be updated? Now that Heart of Obsidian is out, and since there really isn’t much of a council any longer, it’s probably time to get more recent information out here. I love it and use it to keep track of the characters. Thanks!

    • kaleigha said:

      Hey there – since I just got the book yesterday (and I do the first read as a pleasure read), I will be updating the guide to include heart of Obsidian hopefully by the end of next week.

  27. Thanks so much Kaleigha! I can’t wait because I really enjoy reading the timeline and whos-who :-).

  28. Love it! Thanks! Does it mention anywhere else about Aden’s sub designation is?

    • kaleigha said:

      Hey Beth – glad you like. I have never seen anything about what makes Aden stand out, just that he is a telepath – and not “just” a medic. Looking forward to finding out, though.

  29. Wow, this characters guide really helping me to understand psy-changeling world. And i wanna suggest you, can you make psy designations, too?

    • kaleigha said:

      Make a section at the beginning for what known designations there are? I can give it a shot when I add the info for Heart of Obsidian, sure.

      • You made it, the psy designations. So maybe if someday i forget some designations meaning i can take a peek in here…
        Thanks Kaleigha!
        (sorry for my bad english, cuz english is not my native language:))

      • kaleigha said:

        Hey Lili – no problem.. I probably missed a couple, but I will add them as I go, too.

  30. First off: this is brilliant and so helpful. I can only imagine the hard work you put into it, so thank you!!!

    The second thing Clay is 32. It says on pg4 of MtP ‘where he had been incarcerated at the age of fourteen’. Clay confirms that on pg12 ‘ “I spent four years in a cage.” That didn’t count the fourteen he’d passed in the small boxlike apartments he and his mother had called home.’

    Clay was 18 when he left juvie + 14 years with his mother = 32. I’m reading MtP for the second time and I’m just at the beginning so I I’m wrong I’m sorry! But again thank you for this page. The information has helped refresh my memory!!

  31. Turns out I WAS wrong!
    Sorry about that! :)

    • kaleigha said:

      Those things are hard to keep track of sometimes – even when I write everything down I still have to wonder if I got it right.

  32. the greatest guidance ever!!!
    Looove it.. respect and thank youuu!!!

  33. Any ideas who the forgotten tracker mentioned in Heart of Obsidian is? I feel like I should know, but I’ve read through the books and no one jumps out…

  34. does anyone know exactly how large the Snow Dancer and/or Dark River territories are? could anyone make a map? like color coded and such?

    • Hmm, I remember reading before about the amount of territory that they both cover, but I can’t remember details, for some reason. SnowDancer is much, much larger than DarkRiver, I do remember that. I will check around and see if anyone has done up something like a map.
