Soarboar of Jericho was an inhabitant of the planet Gethsemane. He was rescued from the planet by the crew of the Pathfinder Ship Pegasus . At the time of his rescue, Soarboar was a teenaged boy leading a group of 85 child-refugees who were sheltering in an old power plant. He had a wife named Serrea who was pregnant with his child. Soarboar lived on the ship for the next four years. (Book 09: Gethsemane )

Soarboar and 2,100 other Gethsemanian refugees left Pegasus to start a new colony on the planet Eventide . The Gethsemanians chose him to lead their colony, and Commander Bill Keeler found him “a pretty sensible kid.” (Book 10: Eventide )
