”I do not like the look of those who have taken this form. I do not like how people clamor to be given it.
Appearance and Personality
Chivi wears nimbleform, representing it in the Council of Five. Nimbleform gives her face elongated features, with long hair strands that she ties into a ponytail. She is frustrated by the complacency of the listeners, and does not initially oppose using stormform.
Chivi was present at the Council meeting when Venli proposed the plan of taking on stormform. She was unhappy with the decline of the listeners and appeared to be hopeful that they could find a way to turn the tide in their battle against the humans. She agreed with Eshonai's plan to be the one to test the new form, as Venli was considered too important to lose.
After Eshonai took on stormform and transformed two hundred additional soldiers to create the Storm Division, Chivi assumed that this would be enough to help the listeners win the war. She was not initially in favor of Eshonai's proposed plan to transform the entire listener population, and expressed some concerns about how far the plan had already progressed, noting that other listeners were now coveting the form. Eshonai was insistent, but Chivi and Zuln did not allow the plan to proceed. Eshonai and Venli later conferred and believed that they could convince Chivi to join them.
It is not clear what happened to Chivi after Eshonai led a coup to take control of the listeners. She either took on stormform or was one of the dissenters that escaped into the chasms.
