"I'm loyal. That's why he chose me when you were gone."
―Nadine Arnett[1]

Nadine Leiko Arnett (10 February 2041 –) also known as The Silent Bell, is a member of Jaxon Hall's clairvoyant gang, the Seven Seals. She is a whisperer, a sensor type of clairvoyant, and the younger half-sibling of Ezekiel Sáenz. She served as temporary mollisher of the Seals during Paige Mahoney's imprisonment in Sheol I, but was forced to return to her old role as a busker in Covent Garden upon Mahoney's return. She is a talented violinist.



Little is known of Nadine's life prior to joining the Seven Seals. She was born in Québec, Canada and lived in Boston, Massachusetts. At some point her half-brother Zeke, a fellow clairvoyant, moved in with her. In April 2057, she travelled to the Scion Citadel of London with him on a college trip to find out more about the Scion system. After the pair were approached by Jaxon Hall, they elected to remain in the citadel to learn more about their clairvoyance.


Nadine was seen in Paige Mahoney's flashbacks throughout the novel.

Towards the end of the book, Nadine, along with her gang, successfully infiltrate Sheol I to rescue Paige during the Biccentennial Ceremony. She is seen taking pot shots at emissaries with her pistol and fighting alongside Sheol I voyants and aumarotics against NVD officers who tried to stop them from leaving. She was last seen boarding a train car with her brother and Jaxon back to London.

Physical descriptionEdit

Nadine is described as having dyed straight red hair, cut as if by a ruler. In Paige's last memory, Nadine has stopped dying her hair and it is dark brown and shorter.

Paige noted the only similarities she shares with her brother are his eyes and restless features.

She stands 5”6’ with a reasonably slim build, naturally dark brown hair and amber-brown eyes. She is of mixed race: her father is black and her mother (whom she shares with Zeke) is mixed Hispanic and East Asian [2]
