Changed: 5c5
The Living Asheth who Christopher Chant meets and befriends in The Lives of Christopher Chant is a bit younger than Christopher, and has a round, ordinary face and long, mouse-coloured hair. Like the priestesses, she wears a sleeveless, rust-brown robe and no shoes; unlike them, she wears a quantity of silver and turquoise jewelry, including a coronet, a jewelled sash, and more than dozen bracelets. (On the Day of Festival, of course, she wears something far more elaborate.) She has a purple birthmark on the sole of her foot, which is supposedly the shape of a cat and a sign of Asheth's favour. She has a remarkable amount of magical ability, which she attributes to being the Living Asheth. She is quite intelligent, and finds the life of the Living Asheth rather boring.

Although she knows that it is forbidden for Asheth Temple Cats to be removed from the Temple, she allows Christopher to take Throgmorten in exchange for his promise to return with books in exchange. (The books in the Temple are all educational or holy, and she wants to read something more interesting.)
