Ruination of Azlant
Perrell is a scholar and historian. Like Lyra, she is an employee of the Bountiful Venture Company. Even if she weren’t, she would still have volunteered to join the colony out of academic interest. Her responsibility is to chronicle daily events in Talmandor’s Bounty and provide Ramona with scholarly advice on the nature of any ruins or ancient and valuable relics. She also sees it as her duty to provide her employers with high-quality maps of the island based on Lyra’s explorations.
The scholar is pleasant and soft-spoken, but very precise. Her gentle demeanor doesn’t impinge on her ability to point out when she thinks others are wrong, which she does with dogged stubbornness. It is not unusual for her to carry on doing what she feels is important and disregard what anyone else thinks. She doesn’t like confrontation, however, and has a healthy aversion to the dangerous side of adventuring.
