Riven: The Sequel to Myst

Cho was a male Rivenese and part of Gehn's elite guard on the Age of Riven in 9462 DE (1807 CE).


Cho's main duty was to watch the Riven Linking Cage in case someone was to link in. If one was to indeed link in to the cage, Cho had been instructed to speak a few D'ni phrases ordering the person to give him their linking book. Upon Catherine's arrival to Riven on Leevotar 29, 9461 DE (March 15–16, 1806 CE), Cho was quite surprised, as she was the first and only person to link-in in 30 years. Cho was quickly knocked out by the Moiety, though not before he searched her for a linking book, finding that she had none.

Less than a year later, on Leevosahn 1, 9462 DE (January 2–3, 1807 CE), the Stranger arrived in Riven while Cho was watching the cage. Seeing the D'ni Trap Book, he tried to tell the Stranger to give him the book in D'ni. However he had trouble to pronouncing the words, so he switched to Rivenese. Eventually, he gave up and took the book from the Stranger, only to be knocked out by a Moiety blow dart. He was then dragged away and thrown off a nearby cliff. He later awoke and returned to Gehn, empty-handed. It is unknown what happened to him after the collapse of Riven.



Bluebook1.jpg This section contains information that is not entirely canon to the Myst storyline.

Cho is seen in multiple of the non-canon endings to Riven: The Sequel to Myst:

  • When the player uses the D'ni Trap Book, Gehn makes Cho use the book, such that the Stranger swaps places with Cho and Gehn can talk to them face-to-face.
  • He also appears if the Stranger opens the Star Fissure before capturing Gehn and freeing Catherine. After Atrus links in, Gehn and Cho appear. Gehn then shoots Atrus and takes his linking book. He then orders Cho to shoot the Stranger, which he does.


  • Cho is not his actual name, but is instead a nickname popularly given to him by fans, based on the first word he says upon seeing the Stranger ("Cho?").
