About Edit

The Pythia's power has passed in an unbroken tradition for thousands of years. Every time a new Pythia is chosen, a sybil—the Silver Circle's name for a true clairvoyant—is selected as her heir. She is carefully trained from childhood to understand the burden and how to bear it. It is not a job. It is a calling. And the heir has no choice. [1]

Traits / CharacteristicsEdit

  • It is not an appointed position. [2]
  • The power goes where it will, to whoever is most worthy, the ancient texts say.[3]
  • The Heir must be a virgin for the power to pass to her.[4]

Known Heirs Edit

Other DetailsEdit

  • The Circle's sybil has studied for years for the position. She was trained well. They didn't think that Cassie would be a rival [5]

Events in the Series Edit

This section may have spoilers. Think of the book title as a "Spoiler Warning" if you haven’t read it yet.

1. Touch the DarkEdit

The current trained Heir has been kidnapped kidnapped by Rasputin and the Dark Circle more than six months ago. Mircea, Louis-Cesare and Rafe believe that part of the power the Pythia holds has leaked to Cassie, and therefore probably to the other heir as well.[6]
