Tribal elder, hunter, and warrior

First named Woodhue, One-Eye gained his new soubriquet after his right eye was put out by humans. Rain the Healer could only seal the wound, not replace the organ.

Needless to say, One-Eye’s hatred and distrust of humans ran deep. Although he still considered Cutter a cub at the time of Bearclaw’s death, One-Eye never questioned his judgment; he was chief and that was that. One-Eye was fierce in battle, especially when his cub, Scouter or his lifemate, Clearbrook were endangered.

One-Eye was fatally wounded by a Frozen Mountain troll, but his death was anything but swift: the preserver Petalwing immediately sealed him in wrapstuff and trapped him on the point of mortality. Days later, deep in the troll caverns where his body had been carried, Leetah realized that he was still alive, then tried desperately—and in secret—to pull him back from the brink. Though she was able to restore his body, One-Eye’s spirit was gone, fled to the Palace.

Only when Clearbrook made peace with “the breath that is not life,” years later, was One-Eye released to death.
