I suspect Jak was hallucinating through this entire section, a result of the trauma to his head. Upon doing this edit, I wished several times to be similarly afflicted.

—Handerwym's annotations[1]

Handerwym is a Terrisman in post-Catacendre Scadrial.[1]


He is steward and companion of the explorer Jak and follows him on his many adventures in the Roughs. He is also the editor and annotator of the many short stories that Jak publishes in the Elendel Daily, a difficult job as he once had to remove sixteen superfluous commas from a single page, and Jak is under the impression that Koloss looks better when spelled Kol!oss. He has saved Jak's life many times.


He is often separated from Jak in his adventures, leaving him skeptical as to whether the action as described by Jak actually took place. His annotations are often satirical and express doubt as to whether Jak's descriptions are accurate. He is annoyed at Jak for his terrible grammar and spelling and is extremely annoyed when people buy the stories without his editing. He believes that getting Jak to improve his writing is far more difficult than Jak's adventures in the Roughs. He left Elendel because the lack of intelligence among the Elendel public was driving him crazy. So, he could either leave or kill himself, the latter of which would violate his pacifist oaths.


He was apparently a Connector.[2]
