Jakt was a native to the planet of Trondheim, a respected fisherman, and the husband of Valentine Wiggin.[1] He was first introduced in Speaker for the Dead.


Speaker for the Dead Edit

Jakt was described as “lord of a hundred fishing vessels and master of the fjords". He was one of the most respected fishermen on the planet, and was very successful. Although she did not originally anticipate it, Valentine Wiggin fell in love with Jakt and married him, having four children: Syfte, Ren, Ro, and Varsam.[1]

Although it would mean leaving behind the world he grew up in, Jakt agreed to leave Trondheim without hesitation when Valentine said she wanted to go to Lusitania to see her brother, Andrew Wiggin.[1]

Xenocide Edit

While on Lusitania, he served as an encourager to Valentine and the voice of practicality.[2]

Personality Edit
