Jane Cahill is one of Gideon and Olivia Cahill's five children and the founder of the Janus branch.

History Edit

Jane Cahill founded the Janus Branch. She was the youngest known to the five original Cahills, being born in 1497 which means she was 10 when the Cahills split up. She had a very close relationship with her older brother, Luke. He honestly cared about her music and writing, and she loved him for that. After the fire that dis-unified their family, Jane, like her other siblings, believed Luke to be responsible and was most devastated and heartbroken. Then, she left the island in order to explore her talents. But Jane quickly realized that it was difficult to be an artist in London, especially if you're a girl. So, she started disguising herself as a boy. Without the distraction of gender, her talent could speak for itself. Soon, Jane (named John in disguise) became one of the most famous stars in England.

Her older sister, Katherine, described her as "Too young, too fanciful, to make it on her own." Her symbol is a wolf and her prized possession was a golden harp which she never let go of.


"Arts above all"


Appearance and PersonalityEdit

Jane loved music and the arts, especially writing, drawing, and painting. She has a great mistrust of family. In the books, Amy and Dan comment how Jonah Wizard's eyes look exactly like Jane's. Her motto is "Arts above all".

  • Jane was accomplished in the arts, which included drawing, painting, writing and music.
  • Jane may also have had knowledge of fighting techniques, since most martial arts are mastered by Janus members.
  • When Jane fled to the mainland, she pretended to be a boy because women, and more so ten-year-old-girls, were not taken seriously as artists. She used the alias, "John."
  • Jane had a good influence on Winthrop Cahill, her brother Luke's son. He loved her music and had, as Olivia would say, "A jot of Jane."
