Black Ring One: Zhanai’degau

Jeanette Delgado assumes the form of the people of the alternate worlds, as if she had been born there. She speaks and understands their languages, and does not know how that works. Her name is pronounced differently in every world. She tries to correct it, but she cannot say it the way she does at home. She says it the way the people do. 

She has come to understand her role as a hero by the end of Book One. She has made good friends here, but she must leave them. When they say goodbye to her, addressing her as, “my Lady,” she tells them, “My name is Zhanai’degau.”
