An Urrasti doctor who accompanies Shevek on his initial journey from Anarres to Urras. Kimoe provides Shevek with the necessary vaccines and medicine to make his transition to Urras easier. Kimoe is the first Urrasti whom Shevek meets, just like Shevek is the first Anarresti Kimoe has known. As such, the two carry on bewildered conversations throughout the journey as they excitedly—and with trepidation—learn about one another’s cultures.
