Biography

The Green Ember

Heather Longtreader creates a game called Starseek when she is young, and taught her younger brother how to play also, making it become a game that they played often. One day, her father told her and her brother, Picket Longtreader, the story of King Jupiter, and the next day a mysterious lady named Glen showed up at their house. Heather and Picket were sent to pick berries, and while they were gone, their home was attacked and burned to the ground. Heather sent Picket to run to one of the Seven Mounds; she confronted Redeye Garlackson, and led a long chase until she got stuck in the entrance of the Fifth Mound. Suddeenly, two strange rabbits arrived on the scene: Wilfred Longtreader, one of her father's brothers, and a small white rabbit. Wilfred Longtreader managed to kick her inside, saving her from the pursuing wolves, but knocking her out. She then later woke up after taking a freezing bath in the underground river. She and Picket escape the Mounds after Wilfred breaks the wall holding the water in. They rode on the swelling flood that followed in a small boat along with the white rabbit whose name was Smalls and Uncle Wilfred, the latter having joined them shortly after the breaking of the wall.

The flood soon joined the Whitmer River, at which point Heather, overcome by the trying ordeals she had gone through that morning, fell into a fitful sleep.

Heather awakened the following day, to find Uncle Wilfred and Smalls speaking in hushed and urgent tones.

Heather enters the Story Guild to tell the story of Jupiter Smalls. The story written down and was passed to all of Cloud Mountain, all of the secret citadels and beyond.

After the battle is over, Heather and Emma work to get as many soldiers healed as possible. All of the captians and soldiers gather outside the tent to pledge their allegiance to Emma.

That night Heather goes to the plateaux and finds Emma at the top of the seventh standing stone. Emma was planning to give herself to the birds of prey to buy time for Cloud Mountain to survive. Heather pushes Emma off the stone, takes the emerald Emma was wearing, and the bird takes Heather to The High Bleaks. Heather brought only her clothes on her back and her satchel. Inside the satchel was an emerald gem, Joan's Purse (which contained a bottle), and her torch charm.

Garten Longtreader confirms for Morbin that Heather was not Emma, but his own niece. Heather tells them she took Emma's place without Emma's positon. Garten convinces the birds to not kill Heather. Heather hears a signing rabbit and recognizes the song and the voice singing it.

Physical appearance

Heather Longtreader is a "beautiful" doe with pure white fur and silvery eyes. She has a notch in her right ear, which was caused by an arrow from one of Redeye Garlackson's wolves.

During the events of The Green Ember, Heather wears a blue dress with off-white sleeves and a gray cloak; she also carries a staff. Subsequently, during the events of Ember Falls, she wears a white tunic with a lavender stripe down the front, a matching cape, and a cream-colored scarf. During the events of Ember Rising, Heather dons a tattered deep blue dress with white under-sleeves and a red preymark, and she carries a satchel. Lastly, during the events of Ember's End, she wears a similar dress but with a forest-green neck and sleeve hems rather than navy blue; she still carries her satchel.

Personality and traits

Heather is a young doe known for her empathy, kindness, and bravery. She is good at telling stories, but didn't work up the courage to spin her tales publicly until after the Attack on Cloud Mountain. Having matured, Heather finds herself thrown into the midst of a great war; she appropriately summons her courage and rises to the task of defending the Cause, telling her stories wherever she goes and speaking up in the face of injustice.

Though she is verbally and physically abused by enemies throughout her time with the Cause, Heather never succumbs to the will of the Lords of Prey, even when her younger brother, Jacket, is twisted to promote their propaganda. She remains steadfast throughout her and her friends' hardship, and because of this is known to be an exceptionally strong rabbit.

Relationships

Whittle Longtreader

Heather is close to her father, having inherited his mild manner and his affinity for telling stories. She looks up to him as a leader and role model and, though initially scandalized by his lack of resistance against evil, gains a new appreciation for him once reunited with her family in Akolan.

Sween Longtreader

Heather has a healthy relationship with Sween, who often sang songs to her, especially as a youngling. Even when Heather is older, she is still close to her mother.

Garten Longtreader

Though she didn't even know she had Garten as an uncle at all until she learned of her family's betrayal to King Jupiter, Heather despises him like the rest of her family.

Smalden Joveson

Smalls charms Heather when they first meet, and she grows to love him romantically. She mourns Smalls' death with a horrified emptiness, and later resolves to live as though she were his widow, honoring his memory and refusing any other husband.

Emma

Perhaps Heather's best friend, Emma started drawing close to her since the day they met. They shared secrets and exchanged opinions and stories, and even made lighthearted fun of Picket together, something Heather would never have done with anyone less than a good friend. Since the battles, Heather and Emma have become yet closer, Heather even going so far as to put herself in Emma's place so that she would be kidnapped and taken to Akolan rather than her friend.

Trivia

  • Heather's character was inspired by S. D. Smith's oldest daughter, Anne.[2]
