Lily, Jonasís sister, is a Seven when Jonas is an Eleven. She becomes an Eight in the December ceremony when Jonas becomes a Twelve.
Gabriel is one of the babies that Jonasís father nurtures. The other babies that Jonasís father nurtures do not have names yet. But, hoping to help him to thrive by calling him by name, Jonasís father finds out what name is planned for him at the Naming Ceremony and begins to use it. Gabriel becomes especially close to Jonas.
