Cao Khi was a necromancer mentioned briefly in She Is the Darkness. He was the father of Hong Tray, who was the last true priestess of the Nyueng Bao De Duang people. His descendants would have critical roles in the history of the southern continent, the glittering plain, and beyond.

She Is the Darkness[]

Long after Cao Khi's death, his great-granddaughter Ky Sahra shared a few family oral histories about him to her husband Murgen. Cao Khi was discussed rarely and with mild embarrassment because he was a necromancer, which was apparently frowned-upon in Nyueng Bao culture. Murgen understood, commenting "we all have those crooked limbs in our family trees".

Cao Khi's elderly granddaughter Ky Gota thought she sensed his ghostly presence, or the presence of her deceased mother Hong Tray, one night during her time in Overlook after the successful Siege of Overlook. She was actually detecting the disembodied spirit of Murgen, who was searching for the whereabouts of Uncle Doj.
