She lives in the ship's darkest corners, and trusts no one except two large gray rats --- that is, until a mysterious boy is discovered barely alive on an iceberg, and brought onto the ship. He claims to have forgotten even his name. The tribes don't trust strangers, so Petrel hides the boy, hoping he will be her friend. What she doesn't know is that the ship guards a secret --- a secret the boy has been sent to destroy.
