Riguel Blueeye is a one-eyed Siamese-coloured cat from Southsward. He was captured by Zanog and chained to the slave line because he refused to join up with his horde. He developed a fierce hatred for Miggu, the ferret slave driver, and when Riguel vented his rage on him, he was beaten and chained to a large rock. However, Riguel had broken Miggu's whip and hidden it. It had a metal spike on one end and, using this as a file, Riguel managed to free himself. He soon joined the four questers from Salamandastron and, though Tess was suspicious of him at first, proved to be extremely helpful, being an excellent fighter needing only his claws and teeth.
