Naev is a Hand of the Red Church and close friend of Mia Corvere. She manages supply runs in the desolate Whisperwastes of Ashkah. Once a beautiful woman, she was disfigured by the Weaver, Marielle, out of jealousy for the relationship she had with the Weaver's brother, Adonai, but, as a reward for Mia's assistance during the Luminatii assault on the Quiet Mountain, Marielle restored Naev's former beauty. After some initial difficulties, she and Mia became friends and confidants.
Naev never forgets and never forgives, which is one of the reasons Mia is so fond of her.
