My Ranking Points
I have a GIANT theory! Hear me out.
So, Hort and Nicola discover that Japeth is just Japeth’s middle name. His first name starts with an r (RJ). Rhian is Japeth’s brother. The School Master’s Good brother was named Rhian. The School Master’s name was Rafal! I think that Japeth’s first name is Rafal. However, I don’t think that he is the actual Rafal. I think that Evelyn Sader named her children after her love and his brother to show her loyalty through an act of Evil devotion. August Sader himself says in the handbook that the School Master’s brother was named Rhian. Of course he’d know, as he was Evelyn’s brother. Maybe there’s a reason why Rhian was never quite as bad as Japeth. Perhaps Japeth was just influencing him. As for Evelyn Sader, she is far sneakier than I’d ever imagined!
Okay first of all I just finished the 5th book yesterday and in the book it says that RJ is Japheth’s real name. Please Don’t pretend t9 make that you’re theory
No, she’s saying she already knows Japeth’s initials are RJ, but it says in the book that the J in RJ stands for Japeth, RJ’s middle name. It actually says in the book: ‘”Who’s RJ?” Hort asked. “I thought you said Aric was friends with Japeth.”
“Japeth is RJ’s middle name,” said Nicola.
“How do you know?” said Hort.
Nicola held up a faded envelope.’
And then it has a letter from Aric to Japeth, or RJ. Chapter 20, The House at Number 63, pages 448 to 449, paragraphs 9 to 12 on page 448, and the first few on 449.
She’s making a guess at Japeth’s first name. She’s discussing a theory, which is what this chat is for.
I’m sorry if I offend you.
But I have to defend myself on this as I would never do something like that. And I didn’t.
I never said any of that was a theory. Japeth is RJ’s middle name. That’s what the J stands for. We know that. However, my actual theory is that the R stands for Rafal, but not like the actual Rafal. I never would make something already known a theory. I’m a stickler for details and fact-check everything.
As for the Evelyn Sader part, same thing. We know that and I never claimed it as my theory. Please read posts carefully before you start accusing people.
It’s okay if you don’t like my theories. I’ll try to make it more clear in the future for people like you what is my evidence supported by book material and what is the actual theory, although I still believe that I did nothing wrong. Thx!
I was thinking the same thing about his name!! That’s a really good theory. Also, @zmei68, I think they weren’t trying to claim that the fact that Evelyn sader is Japeth and Rhians mom as their theory. Same goes for the fact that it wasn’t japeths real name. Their theory was the reasoning *behind* why Japeth was named the way he was, everything else was supporting facts
WAIT HOLD ON! I think we are getting somewhere. Remember that Evelyn is a history teacher at the School before she was evicted. And since she’s a seer, well sort of, and with her brother, August, could he have seen the future of Rhian and Japeth, and so she named Japeth Rafal, but because he has scims, could Evelyn named Japeth’s middle name to be Japeth? The name does sound snakey…
It does sound snakey! So I looked up the etymology…
youngest of the three sons of Noah, from Latin Japheth , from Greek Iapheth , from Hebrew Yepheth , literally “enlargement,” from causative form of the stem p-t-h “to be wide, spacious
Please let There not be a third one!!!
