Twidl and Twudl

The mute mul twins that Jan’s brought along, Twidl and Twudl do most of the heavy lifting on board The Alluring Anakore, seeing to the sails and repairing damage and so forth. It’s hard to tell them apart — they express barely any personality, much less emotion, and wear the same unadorned robes of a nomad — but Twidl is a female with slightly lighter hair while Twudl is a male.

(Whether Twidl and Twudl are Jan’s slaves is unclear. Jan denies they are slaves, but getting your tongue cut out is a common slave’s punishment; at the very least, they used to be slaves.)
