Rook Barkwater


Rook Barkwater

Rook Barkwater is a fictional character in the children's book series "The Edge Chronicles".

=History=Rook is the great-grandson of Cloud Wolf, grandson of Twig Verginix and the great nephew of Tem Barkwater. He appears in "The Last of the Sky Pirates", " Vox", and "Freeglader". In The Last of the Sky Pirates he is a brave young under-librarian in the sewers of Old Undertown, when he is selected to make the perilous journey to the Free Glades to become a Librarian Knight. He is helpful, kind and thoughtful, and even when he loses his skycraft he doesn't give up. Magda Burlix appears to be his love interest, although she has feelings for his best friend, Xanth Filatine as well, although this may be because he saved her life.

Rook Barkwater, who featured in "The Last of the Sky Pirates" as a disobedient thirteen year old boy, has black hair and 'startlingly blue eyes'. By Freeglader he has matured and leads the exodus from Undertown. He also appears in The Lost Barkscrolls as the commander of the third roost, a post of great importance, and leads the entire Freeglader force into battle.
