Zhantee

krwordgazer

Zhantee was selfless, giving, humble and adorablly shy. He gave us some very great moments in Elfquest, especially at the moment of his death. I miss him.

Kathleen

I never really thought about him much, but I think he really is a darling.

Willowspring

I thought it was so unfair that he died... I started crying, but what made me cry harder is that He asked Cutter to share recongition with him before he died... and there's this big thing that makes me think that he knew Cutter's soul name before he died...
Unhappy
But i thought he was a great character that wasnt a born wolfrider. What struck me as funny is that he called Dart a Spinly youth when Dart says he's teach them to fight... So he becomes a wolfrider...
We miss you so much Zhantee

[color=indigo:27e07630d4]was that him Surprised ?? i have to go reread book two now...i thought that was someone else :? ...but he is a sweet quiet character....[/color:27e07630d4]

No, I don't think it was him. The prose novels say it was an elf called "Adja," I think.

Zhantee doesn't make a true appearance until Cry from Beyond-- but we learn in Kings of the Broken Wheel that it was he who strained his back early in Book 2 by trying to lift two pots of clay at once.

And yes, Cutter shared EVERYTHING with Zhantee at his death-- including his own soulname. That makes my eyes tear up just thinking about it.

Zhantee was great. I liked his shy, gentle crush on Leetah. I also enjoyed his "normal-ness". He wasn't super-attractive like most elves, just ordinary.... in fact, he wasn't much of anything - fairly average.

Which is why is gift of shielding struck me sideways. Such a special, unique magic and it was gifted to gentle, shy Zhantee.

I always thought he and Redlance would get along smashingly.

[color=blue:743618d6e5]I thought that it was absolutely adorable the way his spirit just floats around the palace like that! And how he supplied Cutter with a bubble sheild like that! Even after death he is still faithful and protective of his tribe. :P [/color:743618d6e5]

I love Zhantee so much! I nearly cried when I read his death. I was kinda like, "Wait.. WTF?! No no! Zhantee can't be dead! He's not allowed to die..!"

But he's so sweet and caring.. In Dreamtales I loved his dream so much. I always thought his little crush on Leetah was adorable! But it was so unexpected that he had the shield power. When he was first shown using it I was a little confused. He just doesn't seem like the other magic-users. It seems to be a rule of thumb that all the male magic-users are very very girly. Zhantee just doesn't fit that stereotype. I think that's great! :D

I miss you Zhantee.. Unhappy

TOTALLY unlike Cutter's "crested cockarel" hair do, right? I think I'd have a hard time taking seriously a chief who wears his hair in a style my family has always called a "princess ponytail." :D

*loves* for Zhantee!

Kitt

:o HAHAHA! It's not REALLY a ponytail :P

cactus

Here's my favourite pic of him :D

i couldnt tell if pool was a boy or girl either...but i think that was just poor drawing...

Nakadah

Eh, true. But have we ever seen a Wendy-drawn Pool?


Emma

crescent1325

i konw i havent...i dont know if a wendy drawn pool exsists..

Nakadah

Yeah.. I haven't either. Anyone know if he exsists in the realm of the Wendy-drawn?!

*luffs Zhantee*

Emma

cactus

As far as I know she's never drawn him. Or maybe she has tons of unpublished sketches of him lying around in her house Surprised Grin .
*Dreams*

Nakadah

Grin

She probably has them hidden in all sorts of secret hidey-holes all over her house! Just refusing to show them to us!

*still luffs Zhantee*

Here's a very long Zhantee story. It generally makes people cry. . .



Zhantee: A Love Story - This is basically a retelling of the Elfquest plot through the eyes of a character who stays in the background and sees things the reader may not have seen.

krwordgazer

Another short story featuring Zhantee appears about halfway down this page:

Getting Tough

Foxfyre

Wow... better late than never... but I just read Zhantee's story and loved it. Thank you so much for posting it. Being one of my favs (along with Redlance), I have to say I enjoyed reading the entire thing... Thank you again for including it.

Minouche

I think Pool is only shown as a child. Many kids look somewhat androgynous. + I don't find Zhantee, Rain, or Redlance, and most definitely not Rayek, girly at all. Mender is overly pretty (sweet looking enough to set my teeth on edge)but not girly.

AceQuester

Zhantee was cute, sweet, loyal and a magicuser... what does a boy want more *sigh* hahaha ;)

Same for me! :D I really thought it was a girl to balance the fact that Sust was a boy. He is more a boy than Pool.

>Crescent1325: There are Dreamtime stories in color. Here in Holland they are colored by the publisher (with approval of the Pini's of course ;)) And not badly done either :D They also published in chronicle order (right after Shards/Hidden Years bundled at the same time).

Shypaw

I couldn't agree more Ace, lol. I'd sure be happy.

crescent1325
