When Emma, Heather Longtreader, and others suddenly emerge from the narrow entrance to the plateau, the Terralain forces were commanded to kill Emma, who was now revealed to be the heir of King Jupiter (ever since Smalls presumed death).
A Terralain archer aimed for her heart, but Lord Rake jumped in its way, so that he died in Emma's stead.
In a confrontation with Kylen, Emma refutes his accusations of treachery by noting that Rake was killed by one of Bleston's conspirators.
Lord Rake was an tall, old rabbit with grey and white fur. He had an elegant bearing and was well dressed.

- The name "Rake" is of English origin. It means "throat," and was a name given to those who dwelt in a narrow pass or on a hillside.
- At one point in development of The Green Ember, S. D. Smith was going to have Lord Rake be a dog, but changed this on the recommendation of editor James D. Witmer.
