Raisha has long black hair and tanned skin. She is very pretty, and according to Cordalles it is obvious that her family is "well-off".
In the Books
Raisha helps Zerif collect the Great Beast spirit animals as they appear. She appears in all four chapters, most predominantly her own chapter, where she summons Gerathon the Serpent and escapes from the Mire, a Zhongese prison. Once Zerif finds out that she had summoned Gerathon, he enslaves her despite her pleas for him not to.
Despite Gerathon's earlier disdain for humans, she appears to be close to Raisha. They respect each other, and Raisha is not afraid of her spirit animal, and even seems to like her. When Gerathon killed Dorell, Dorell asks why, and Raisha responds that she trusts the cobra. Gerathon attempts to free herself to help Raisha when she is cornered by Zerif.
- "Raisha" is an Arabic name meaning "a young gazelle".
