Sing Sing Smedry is a Smedry with the Talent to trip and fall down. He is the older brother of Australia Smedry and Aydee Ecks Smedry.

Appearance and Personality[edit]

Sing Sing is six and a half feet tall and has dark hair and dark skin. He is quite large.[1] While in Hushlands he wears a kimono as a disguise,[2] but wears a tunic when in the Free Kingdoms.[1][3]

Sing is cheerful, good-natured, and loyal, showing great kindness to Alcatraz on their first mission together. He loves books and learning and shows great enthusiasm for his job.[4]

Attributes and Abilities[edit]

Sing has the Talent of tripping and falling to the ground, which he is able to use to great effect. One feature of his Talent is that he tends to trip whenever danger is nearby (and when tripping would be helpful).[5] This is categorized as a Knowledge Talent on the Incarnate Wheel.[6]

The hefty Mokian quite convincingly stumbled on the welcome mat right inside the doors. He cried out, hopping on one foot—a teetering, lumbering mound with the kinetic energy of a collapsing building.


Additionally, Sing is an anthropologist specializing in ancient (Hushlander) weaponry, and he prefers to use guns over more “advanced” weapons.[2] He is very interested in Hushlander culture, though he despises the Librarians.[8] Although not an Oculator, he uses Warrior's Lenses effectively.[2]


"You’re still my cousin. Even if you’ve done bad things, that doesn’t make you a Dark Oculator. Anything you’ve done, you can fix. You can change."

— Sing to Alcatraz[4]

Alcatraz Smedry[edit]

Sing treats Alcatraz with a degree of deference and respect, admiring his young cousin's Oculator powers and powerful Talent. However, he also mentors Alcatraz, providing him with encouragement and information about the Librarians and the Free Kingdoms.
