Love is weakness. And nobody is making me sentimental and weak! Nobody!
— Keller to Galen Drache [1]


Raksha Keller, simply known as Keller, is a panther shapeshifter, one of the best operatives for Circle Daybreak, and the protagonist of the book Witchlight. Keller and her team are assigned the task of locating and procuring the third Wild Power, who is revealed to be a lost Harman witch named  Iliana Dominick.

Iliana is prophesied to be the Witch Child; a Harman destined unite the shapeshifters and the witches by marrying the son of the First House of the Shapeshifters, Galen Drache. However, after finally meeting the two, it is revealed that despite his engagement to Iliana, Galen is Keller's soulmate. This is becomes an obstacle, as should Galen fail to conduct a promise ceremony to Iliana, the witches and the shapeshifters will form an alliance, an alliance crucial to fate of the entire world. 

PersonalityEdit

Keller is a born leader. She is strong and has her head firmly on her shoulders. When she knows what she has to do Keller just does it. But Keller is an impatient person. She also finds it hard to deal with people who do not keep up with her. An aura of authority surrounds Keller. She is easily respected but she does not respect easily. When Keller devotes herself to something she gives it her all.

Early HistoryEdit

ChildhoodEdit

Keller and her twin sister Rashel were the daughters of an unnamed shapeshifter and a human woman named Melisande Jordan. While Rashel was born a human, Keller on the other hand was a shapeshifter like her father. Because she was too young to control her shapeshifting, Keller was stuck in a halfway form. Feeling constrained by his inability to shapeshift at will and assuming that a shapeshifter child would be too much for his wife, Keller's father took her and abandoned the family. Ultimately, he abandoned his young panther daughter, leaving her on the street in a cardboard box with a note saying:

People die . . .
Beauty fades . . .
Love Changes . . .
And you will always be alone.

Keller was found and taken by a hospital nursery. However, she was adopted by Circle Daybreak after they read reports of her in the newspaper. Since then, Keller has worked for them as a form of "repayment", although Keller had always mistakenly assumed she had been abandoned by her mother rather than her father.

DaybreakerEdit

After being taken in by Circle Daybreak, Keller has become one of the organization's top agents and developed a reputation of never losing. Her teammates include the witch Winfrith Arlin and the vampire Nissa Johnson, who refer to her as "Boss". They are recognized as Circle Daybreak's best fighting team.

Night World: The Ultimate Fan GuideEdit

Stuck in mid-shift with cat ears and a tail, Keller is abandoned by her human parent as a baby. After being rescued and raised by Circle Daybreak, Keller decides to work for the organization to pay them back for taking care of her as a child. Like the cat she shifts into, Keller is always very independent.

TriviaEdit

  • Raksha's given name is derived from a Hindu demonic creature, the rakshasa, which were known to feed on humans and blood. However, their own name comes from a Sanskrit term meaning "protect me", in keeping with Keller's role in defending Iliana. They were furthermore noted as being able to use illusions and change form (like a shapeshifter). Not all rakshasa were evil, such as Vibhishana, a rakshasa noted as being a good-hearted being, and the brother of one of the most famous rakshasa, the wicked King Ravana of the Hindu Ramayana epic.
  • As Keller's mother was human, it is well that she had been found and taken in by Circle Daybreak. With a human parent, Keller and her family might have been executed had the Night World found out.
