Jorality "Jory" Bancanor is one of Daja Kisubo's students, which she meets when she is with Frostpine in Kugisko, along with her twin sister Niamara; the twins are twelve years old at the time the novel takes place. Jory is an ambient cooking mage, and her main teacher is Olennika Potcracker, on whom Jory insisted to the point where she would accept no other teacher. Daja teaches both twins meditation, though separately; when Jory has difficulty concentrating during traditional, sitting meditation, Daja teaches her to meditate through staff fighting, a technique taught to her by Dedicate Skyfire.
Jory's first noted act of magic is to smooth out the texture of green sauce for fish the family cook, Anyussa, was teaching her to make. She can also see magic in its pure form, a fact which is discovered when she says she sees "sparks" in the family kitchen.
So far Jory only appears in Cold Fire, where she is a major character due to her being Daja's student.
