  • Redden Alt Mer is a fictional character from The Voyage of the Jerle Shannara series by Terry Brooks. Redden Alt Mer, nicknamed "Big Red" by his friends, is a Rover and airship captain. Big Red is famous for his "luck"-he has never been brought down in battle, nor has he received any serious injuries, and he has escaped death numerous times. He is also the half-brother of Rue Meridian, who is called "Little Red" in deference to him. Before his involvement in the journey to Parkasia, Redden Alt Mer captained the airship Black Moclips under Federation command. In truth, Alt Mer cared little for the war, only participating as a mercenary. His service came to an end when he defied an order to attack damaged airships, and he was briefly imprisoned. He escaped later with the aid of his sister, and next appeared to offer his services to Walker Boh. Big Red got the job, and became captain of the Jerle Shannara. While on the journey to Parkasia, Big Red tutored Bek Ohmsford in the workings of airships. Shortly after arriving in Parkasia, he and his crew were captured, but managed to escape. After a series of repairs, Alt Mer flew the Jerle Shannara in an insane chase through the mountains of Parkasia, eventually crashing and necessitating the need for further repairs. Big Red later commandeered Black Moclips from the Morgawr, and used it to attack the enemy airships, a fleet of about two dozen. Amazingly, Redden Alt Mer still had the luck, and he took down every enemy ship, surviving to tell the story. His sister, Rue Meridian, married Bek Ohmsford, so Big Red is the uncle of Pen Ohmsford.

  • Rue Meridian is a fictional character from The Voyage of the Jerle Shannara and High Druid of Shannara trilogies byTerry Brooks. Rue, also known as 'Little Red', is the half-sister of the famous airship pilot, Redden Alt Mer, 'Big Red'. She shares his skill with air-ships and flaming red hair. She and her brother are Rovers, and they and several of their kin were employed by the Federation as airship crew. However, her brother disobeyed orders and was thrown in jail by the Federation. Rue rescued him, and they escaped to March Brume. There, Walker Boh hired them to crew his expedition on the airship, the Jerle Shannara. On the trip Rue met, and fell in love with, Bek Ohmsford. When the quest was finished, she and Bek married and made their home on the shore of the Rainbow Lake. There, they raised their son Penderrin. When Penderrin was fifteen, Grianne Ohmsford, Bek's sister and the reformed Ilse Witch, was kidnapped, and her assistant, Tagwen, sought them out for help. Rue and Bek were away in the Eastland, so Tagwen had Penderrin sought after the help of Ahren Elessedil in search of Grianne. During their expedition, Bek and Rue were brought to Paranor by the Druid traitors and held captive. They escaped with the aid of Trefen Morys and Bellizen, Druids still loyal to Grianne. They later returned to help overthrow Shadea a'Ru, the Druid behind Grianne's disappearance. Rue Meridian is an expert knife thrower and continues to distrust Grianne, not forgetting her crimes as the Ilse Witch.
