Alexander Naymeer

Alexander Naymeer was the founder of Ravinia and the ultimate Traveler from Second Earth.

Early life

Naymeer first lived in the town of Redhill in London, England. He was found on the doorstep in a local hospital, and contracted a fatal sickness at age seven. Naymeer was named after Alexander the Great, the conquering Greek general, and appeared at around the same time Mark and Courtney visited First Earth in Raven Rise. He was introduced to Saint Dane's plan after Nevva Winter, in the form of a raven, came to him in the middle of the night and helped him recover.


Naymeer grew up with mysterious ideas and notions, which were dismissed as his untamed imagination at an early age. He later became a popular leader, and founded a movement known as Ravinia. Naymeer revealed The Convergence as his own invention, and created a five-pointed star as its symbol. He planned the Bronx Massacre, in which he would suck thousands of revolutionaries into the flume in New York City.

Alexander Naymeer was the founder of Ravinia. His first appearance in book 8, were he is described as a very sick boy who the doctors did not think would make it. Nevva Winter  came to him in the middle of the night as a raven and helped him to recover. He later revealed the Convergence as his own invention, which had a 5 pointed yellow star as its sign, which resembled the star on the flumes greatly. After creating the flume at the Bronx Massacre, he took Bobby up into his helicopter with Saint Dane and Nevva there as well. After Naymeer's stating that it looked funny to see all the people get sucked into the flume, Bobby snapped, remembering all the things that had recently taken place (most of all, the death of Alder). Bobby grabbed Naymeer in a rage and took him to the door of the helicopter where he asked him if the death of thousands was what his Utopia was. Finally, Bobby dropped Naymeer off the helicopter into the massive flume, ending the life of the founder of Ravinia.

Rise to power

It is unknown how his political party exactly rised to power beside the fact that it became popular after an unknown timeframe in Second Earth. It is likely that he used the persuation ability of the Travellers to influence people along with the holographic-like projecting of multiple images of Halla's others territories. Ir is also known that the Pope, the multiple presidents and politicians agreed with his ideologies.


Naymeer's ideologies (and therfore Ravinia's) were based around giving privileges to those whom contribute to society and marginalize. He gave as exemple mathematician, scientist, politicians and entrepreuneurs. It is unclear what is the process of judging one's worthiness but it is known that in Third Earth that they occasionally review status of some people to possibily allow them to join Ravinia. His ideologies were described as fascism by Haig Gastigian and Nazi-like by Bobby. Naymeer exiled a part of his ennemies during the Bronx Massacre thus silencing any opposition against Ravinia by the fear of "dissapearing".


  • The way D.J. MacHale came up with the name Naymeer was when he used "name here" in place of real name when writing the first draft of the book.
  • For an unspecified reason, it is shown (via holograms casted by the ring) that he climbed up the Great Wall of China.
  • Alexander Naymeer was supposed to be Bobby's mentor as all the other travelers had mentors from their territories. However, when he refused the job Bobby was given a family of spirits from Solara instead.
