The tangled web of relationships among the various individuals and groups involved in this segment of Jaredite history sometimes makes it difficult to follow the line of development. Here is a summary of the principal figures (giving the references in Ether where the name is first mentioned), together with a chart showing the progression (or in some cases the lack thereof!) down through time:
Omer—son of Shule and principal monarch during this period (see Ether 1:29; 8:1).
Jared—rebellious son of Omer (see 8:1).
Daughter of Jared—inspired the rejuvenation of the secret combinations of old (see 8:8).
Akish—former acquaintance of Omer who becomes the prime mover in the campaign of secret combinations and murders (see 8:10).
Son of Akish (unnamed)—starved to death by his father (see 9:7).
Nimrah—son of Akish who flees to the court of Omer (see 9:8).
Other sons of Akish (unnamed)—instigate a war against their father (see 9:10).
Esrom and Coriantumr—sons of Omer who earlier restore their father to the throne prior to the emergence of the secret combinations (see 8:4).
Emer—righteous son of Omer who succeeds him on the throne following the civil war (see 1:28; 9:14).
Coriantum—righteous king, son of Emer (see 1:27; 9:21).
Com—king, son of Coriantum (see 1:26; 9:25).
Heth—wicked king, son of Com (see 1:25; 9:25).
Shez—righteous king, son of Heth (see 1:24; 10:1).
