Javies is the personal manservant of Bethora. He is apparently a very competent employee, having served Bethora for decades.
Because of his long years of service, he is occasionally allowed some leeway in his personal behavior. Javies is noted as being extremely fastidious. He travels with Bethora on all official trips, and is notable for his willingness to undertake duties younger men blanch at.
During Bethora's stay at an orbital station (where she was attending the race her son participated in), he constantly cleaned whenever they were on board, as he thought the station staff did an inadequate job.
