Journey was a male sorcerer and a "recently promoted" member of the Rebel Circle of Eighteen who fought against The Lady and her Empire. He was also the lover and husband of Feather, another new member of the Circle.

The Black CompanyEdit

Journey and his new wife Feather were both captured during their honeymoon by the Black Company, and delivered by flying carpet to the Tower at Charm. There, they were subjected to the horrific Rite of Taking, during which they became the second and third members of The Lady's Taken. Journey and the rest of the Lady's Taken, including later additions, dressed identically with the sole exception of Whisper.

Shadows LingerEdit

Journey's wife Feather would be the first of the Lady's Taken to die: she was killed by the Black Watchers in Shadows Linger. Outraged, Journey stole the flying carpet of the Limper after his own was destroyed by the Black Watchers. He lost that carpet as well during the Battle of Juniper.

The White RoseEdit

Journey continued to serve the Lady in battle against Darling and her forces on the Plain of Fear. Later he would participate in combat against the Dominator's monsters as they were systematically awakened during the Battle of the Barrowland. At the end of the battle, when The Lady lost her powers, Journey and the rest of the New Taken lost their powers as well. He survived, however, as confirmed in the sixth chronicle, during which Otto and Hagop reported reliable testimony from Imperial officials that he and Whisper (as well as Blister, Creeper, and Learned) remained alive albeit stripped of their sorcery. Journey and Whisper have the unique distinction of escaping death despite membership in both the Circle of Eighteen and the Taken, two groups with grim odds of survival.
