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 Psy have seen the fall of Silence and are now struggling to adapt to a world filled with emotion.  And some of the humans, often thought to be the weakest of the three races, have decided to level the playing field.

line– The Changelings –

To this point, the Psy/Changeling series has focused 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 co-existence 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 Arrows –

While many of the Psy are powerful, there are those abilities are so lethal that they were considered too dangerous to not be tightly regulated and controlled. Those individuals often found themselves turned over to the Arrow Squad – the men and women who became the soldiers and police of their people. While the squad suffered under the control of former Councilor Ming LeBon, a new, more humane life has become possible under Aden Kai’s leadership.

– Empaths –

The E-designation was the lost power of the Psy race. But with the fall of Silence came an encroaching madness that threatened the very fabric of the PsyNet. The long-forgotten Empaths were the only ones with the power to turn back the tides of insanity, forming an Empathic Coalition that stabilized the Net – and the deadly Arrows they were paired with.

– 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.

A – Anchor. Those born of this designation have the ability to merge totally into the Net. Their most important function is to stabilize and hold the PsyNet in place.

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.

  • Tp-A: Audio telepath. Can hear every voice, every noise, in an unending and magnified wave of sound via a psychic pathway. Before Silence, no Tp-A had ever survived adolescence. This ability is tied to emotion, so Silence provided the only shield.

E – Empath. Not recognized as a designation with the rise of Silence, E-Psy have the ability to sense and heal emotional hurts. They play a pivotal role in stopping the infection spreading through the PsyNet, and help to stabilize the deadly Arrows.

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.

– The Forgotten –

At the dawn of Silence, the protocol implemented by the Psy to try and leash the deadly insanity rampaging through their race, a few determined souls broke free rather than submit to an emotionless existence and formed the early core of the Forgotten, forming their own ShadowNet. With unique and sometimes deadly powers of their own, the Forgotten fall under the protection of The Shine Foundation.

Jonquil “Jon” Duchslaya – One of the kidnapped Shine children. Ability to compel with his voice. Adopted by Clay Bennett and Talin McKade. Member of the DarkRiver pack.

Noor Hassan – One of the kidnapped Shine children. Able to heal traumatic injuries when working with Keenan Aleine. Rescued and adopted by Clay Bennett and Talin McKade.

– The Shine Foundation –

Devraj “Dev” Santos – Director of the Shine Foundation. Able to merge with and control computers. Husband of Katya Haas. Story told in Blaze of Memory.

Other Shine Members: Aubry (vice-director), Beck, Connor (Doctor), Eva, Glen Herriford (Doctor), Maggie, Marty (former Director), Massey Petrokov, Matthew Petrokov (early Psy defector), Rangi (guardian),

– The Human Alliance –

For many years, humans have been the third race, caught between the cold brilliance of the Psy and the physical dominance of the Changelings. But in the changing world climate, a select group of individuals have stepped forward to restore humans to their place of power on the world stage. At one time an organization rife with corruption, the Human Alliance has found its voice under the leadership of Bowen Knight and his nine closest allies called The Knights.

Bowen “Bo” Knight – Security chief and leader of The Human Alliance. Adoptive brother of Lily. The Human equivalent of an Alpha. Mate of Kaia Luna. Story told in Ocean Light.

Lily Knight – Adoptive sister of Bowen Knight. Human Alliance communications liaison.

Isaac Beauclair – successful trucking company owner/driver. Helped rescue Leila Savea from her Consortium captors. Married to Jessie Amsel.

Other Alliance Members: Ajax, Aurine, Cassius Drake, Claude (deceased), Domenica Bianchi, Douglas, Emil, Giovanni Somme, Heenali Roy, Jerard Knight, Neha, Niall, Lisette, Zeblong-line

    So I was looking up some info for my review of Archangel’s Heart and somehow came across your post… thank you for this crazy comprehensive character guide. So often little details escape us and this is like a refresher course..lol

  2. library addict says:

    Jason and Jase are the same character.

    Aneca is Zane’s daughter. (I know his mate Rissa has only been mentioned by name in one of the newsletter shorts, but the fact she’s their daughter was mentioned in the books).

    I like the new format 🙂

  3. library addict says:

    Nikki should be Nicki (I double checked Branded by Fire and Kiss of Snow, at least in my digital editions, I didn’t check the print versions).

  4. ALB says:

    I wasn’t aware Desiree was made a sentinel. I thought she was a senior soldier still and just in the running to become one.

        • kaleigha says:

          Yep, I will be updating to add Silver Silence hopefully in the next couple of months. I am working on getting them all up to date as we speak. Hm, I will check out the Cooper thing. Thanks.

    • kaleigha says:

      Honestly, I don’t remember at this point. It seems weird that I have Desi as Leopard and Meena as wolf, though. I will check into it.

  5. Elizabeth says:

    You are missing a designation. In “Tangle of Need”, chapter 28, Kaleb and Aden are discussing the death of a Psy and the reference designation A, for anchors. I never see much on them in the books but I thought you should know, for update purposes 🙂 Thanks for the character guides, I LOVE them! You rock

      First mentioned in Shards of Hope; Aden’s idea to counter the attacks of the Consortium. It was first signed by the Ruling Coalition, the Arrows, the Empathic Collective, DarkRiver and SnowDancer. This all took place in the last chapter of Shards of Hope. The Accord is developed more in Allegiance of Honor.
