|Tortallan Universe character|
Jungen Berryman is a mage working for the Gem Merchant's Guild. In their employ he is testing pearls and gems for their authenticity. Although Berryman works with the most valuable stones he isn't greedy and doesn't try to steel any. This makes Tunstall wonder if Berryman wasn't spelled against it. He is married to a rich woman.
Matthias Tunstall, Clara Goodwin and Rebakah Cooper ask him for help in identifying the stones which have come into their possession. It turns out they are fire opals. Berryman later also helps them capturing the mage Vrinday Kayu together with Koramin Ingensra.
Berryman is both sensation-hungry, always liking to hear good stories about the work of the Provost's Guard, and someone who likes to complain. That's why Goodwin doesn't like working with him and is sorely tempted to hit him. Beka feels the same temptation. By 246 HE he owed some debts to Goodwin and Tunstall, which they called in to get him help them with capturing Kayu.
Berryman is bald and has a weak chin. He seems to have a pale complexion as Rebakah Cooper says that he looked like he barely saw the sun.
His magical gift glows yellow. As a gem mage he is quite able, verifying the authenticity of jewels. According to Tunstall he can also counter a mage mark intended to kill the marked person so he won't give his accomplices or superiors away.
Berryman only appears in Terrier so far.
