Jhoira was a Shivan artificer of the Ghitu tribe who studied at the Tolarian Academy.

History[edit | edit source]

Slightly older than Teferi, she was Karn's first friend after his activation, and gave him his name. She was used by Kerrick to infiltrate the Academy. This caused the temporal disaster that destroyed the first Academy and left Jhoira stranded on Tolaria for many years until Urza Planeswalker returned to found a new Academy. She devised the method to save Teferi from a certain death, and enabled the academics to access the different time zones.

Jhoira herself is nearly immortal due to her experiences at Tolaria following the disaster. She managed to rig a means to collect water from a pool that had been affected by the temporal rifts. Drinking that water slowed the aging process to a near-absolute stand still, causing her appearance to age days over the course of centuries.

Jhoira was the first captain of the skyship Weatherlight and afterward returned to Shiv to oversee powerstone production. During the Phyrexian Invasion, her homeland was phased out along with Teferi's.

She returned to Dominaria along with Teferi, who was trying to bring the phased out continents back safely and close the rifts that threatened the Multiverse. In order for Jhoira to feel more at ease with the task, Teferi summoned two Ghitu warriors and two Viashino to accompany them, as protection would be nearly irrelevant granted that Teferi had nearly unlimited mana at the time and could easily shift their enemies into somewhere far away. In the end, she searched for Jodah, another immortal, and it was hinted they would become romantically involved.
