Character description

1.) (Biblical character) Rahab, (/ˈreɪhæb/;[1] Hebrew: רָחָב‬, Modern Raẖav, Tiberian Rāḥāḇ, "broad," "large." Arabic: رحاب, a vast space of a land) was, according to the Book of Joshua, a woman who lived in Jericho in the Promised Land and assisted the Israelites in capturing the city by betraying her people (Joshua 2:1-24). In the New Testament she is lauded both as an example of a saint who lived by faith, and as someone "considered righteous" for her works.

Although the King James Version renders the name as Rachab in Matthew 1:5, most modern versions render it as Rahab instead.

Rahab in Wikipedia

2.) In Kore Yamazaki's series The Ancient Magus' Bride Rahab is the mentor of Lindel (aka Echo), and named Elias. She is therefore thought of as Elias' "grandmother." She is unable to figure out exactly what Elias is, since he is chiefly fae, but also part human. She moves in time and space, and Lindel uses a cantrip to find her.
