No inhumi. It was Tzadkiel.

"And it was pleasant indeed to sit upon that bank, occasionally refreshing
my laboring tongue with the cold, clean water of the brook, and recount to
Tzadkiel how I had seen her first between the pages of Father Inire's book,
and how I had helped to capture her aboard her own ship, and how she had
been male and called herself Zak, and how she had cared for me when I was
injured." (URTH, chap. XL, p.-283)
