Meet the mentor, Russé
Russé is a master shepherd and Kole’s mentor. Though shaggy gray hair, a walking staff, and a slightly hunched back hints he’s well past his sixties, no one really knows his true age. He possess a deep knowledge of the walking trees—able to commune and control them, which is crucial to the refugees’ survival. Tough but fair, he tends to be a bit over protective when it comes to Kole.
