Gers is one of the last remaining Jalis warriors and the younger brother of Glock. When the Shadow Lord invaded Deltora, Gers was captured and taken to the Shadowlands. He was the second person to escape from the Shadow Arena and wandered the Shadowlands. He agreed to join the Resistance and became a lieutenant in their Shadowlands division. He escaped the Shadowlands with the rest of the Deltorans with the help of the magic of the Pirrans and King Lief, Captain Barda and Jasmine. Among the other prisoners were other Jalis tribespeople.[1] During the release of the grey tide in Hira, Gers travelled to the Hira plain and witnessed Dragon Night. He then flew back to Del on the back of one of the dragons. Gers was present during the wedding of King Lief and Jasmine where he led a batallion of Jalis knights in salute.[2]

History[]

When the Shadow Lord invaded Deltora, the Jalis tribe fought to defend their territory. Gers was among the few who survived the invasion and was brought back to the Shadowlands. He became the second person to escape the Shadow Arena, and was found by Claw wandering the wastes of the Shadowlands. Gers agreed to join the Resistance, and became one of its most valuable members.[1]

The Shadowlands[]

Gers and Claw captured King Lief, Captain Barda and Jasmine shortly after they arrived in the Shadowlands. After hearing them out, Gers was not truly convinced with their story, and doubted that they could save the Deltoran prisoners. His opinion changed when Jasmine showed him Glock's talisman, and repeated his last words. She gave the talisman to Gers, and he vowed to help them.

Gers and Claw freed the prisoners at the Shadow Arena, where he led the Jalis prisoners personally. He was rescued by the Pirran tribes and brought back to Deltora with the other Deltorans, including the imprisoned Jalis.[1]

The Sister of the South[]

Gers came to Del during the outbreak of the Toran Plague. When King Lief suspected the plague to be poison, Gers was tasked with making beds to hold the sick. He travelled to the Hiran plain when the grey tide was unleashed, and witnessed Dragon Night. Afterwards, he flew back to Del on one of the dragons. He was so thankful to be back on the ground that he kissed it.

At Lief and Jasmine's wedding, Gers led a battalion of Jalis knights in salute.[2]

Physical appearance[]

Gers was described as a spitting image of his older brother, Glock.[1]

Personality[]

Gers is a subdued and cautious individual. However, he still possesses a Jalis' sense of honour and duty. He also has a strong pride, as he swore till his dying day that he stumbled off the dragon's neck instead of kissing the ground.[2]

Abillities[]

Like most Jalis, Gers is a stronger fighter. He was able to escape the Shadow Arena and lose his pursuers which shows great skill in combat and survival.[1]
