DRAKKAR! I am Jhavi! Blood of Svanir, a daughter of Jora! You know why I've come, yet you cower in the ice! Face me, and let us finish what you started!

Jhavi Jorasdottir

Warmaster Jhavi Jorasdottir is a norn necromancer,[1] follower of Raven, and one of the leaders of the Vigil.[2][3] As the great-granddaughter of the norn hero Jora[4], she has spent most of her life living in her ancestor's shadow. It can be difficult to separate the respect she has earned as a leader of the Vigil from the respect her lineage demands.


Early Years[edit]

Jhavi is the great-granddaughter of Jora and a follower of Raven. At some point she joined the Vigil, and Vigil members in Hoelbrak can be seen using this to promote interest in the Vigil to other norn,[2] calling Jhavi a 'Vigil leader,' although, aside from reporting directly to Almorra Soulkeeper, she does not seem to have much of a leadership role.[5]

Personal Story[edit]

Jhavi was a Warmaster in the Vigil Keep, with Warmaster Yosif reporting to her. She reported directly to General Almorra during this time,[6] and eventually they came to be good friends.

Living World Season 4[edit]

Jhavi was stationed at Jora's Keep in the Far Shiverpeaks while General Almorra was leading the attack against Kralkatorrik.

The Icebrood Saga[edit]

After Almorra's death, Jhavi took temporary command of the Vigil, but confessed to the Pact Commander that she hadn't been supposed to take over the keep for years, and that she didn't feel ready.[5]
