The Singer is the person in Kira's community who sings "The Ruin Song" every fall. He or she spends days in preparation for it by resting his or her voice and sipping special oils.

Current Singer

The current Singer is a young man. During the Song, Kira notes that he has chains around his bleeding ankles.


Jo is training to be the new Singer when she is older. She wishes to sing a song about Kira, though.
