Character Master List

I've been putting this off for far too long. It's taken HOURS AND HOURS but it'll be so useful now it's done.

TOP EIGHT

Madame Yamin | 20 | Healer for 13 years specialising in snake bites | Current head healer
Shy through necessity, hates feeling useless, compassionate. Living her life in hiding for so long has made her quiet and reserved, but she wants to change this. Exceedingly patient, to the point that people feel guilty if they've actually managed to irritate her.
General Nimay | 20 | Swordswoman with the Own for 5 years
Stubborn, casual, open and outgoing. Has a long fuse, but once she's irritated it's best to stay clear--can take her anger out on those who weren't the cause. Doesn't understand emotional conflict, whether between individuals or nations. Tends to over-simplify things in order to deal with them.
King Yan | 1100 | Deceased; age 43 and appears that old now | First king of Yraekin
Outwardly, very stoic, uncaring and cold. Values life over everything and always has. Wars--and his family's failed attempts to bring him back to life--make him angry because of the waste of life. Master of manipulation. Never lies outright though he will bend the truth slightly or allow people to believe something else. Paranoid of sleep.
Crown Prince Nolryn | 23 | Crown prince of Raykin
Responsible, very self-aware, has to know everything because 'you're royalty; it's always your fault.' Prefers to deal with problems physically rather than with words, even though he understands that steel is rarely the best answer. Quick temper, but has a relatively strong hold on it, especially in public. Not comfortable with showing outward emotion. He really, really tries his best, but he's going to make a crap king.
Crown Princess Assili | 12 | Youngest child of Empress Shizaaqa
Far more mature than her age, hates being treated like a child. Strongly takes after her mother in her confidence and selfishness.
Princess Lynnlita | 24 | Youngest daughter of King Keldirande and Queen Rilldana
Stuck-up snob but doesn't realise it. Strongy opinionated, excellent debater, never takes the opposing party's argument seriously. Admires other cultures from a distance and with very naïve eyes, but is in fact very ignorant of them, thinking they're quaint and pretty but largely beneath her. Forces her Llayan ideals on everyone. Hopeless romantic.
King Mithé | 53 | Current king of Raykin
Patient to a fault, unambitious, feels more like a caretaker of the throne rather than an actual king. Bound by duty. Blunt. Prefers negotiation and avoids warfare at all costs. Never, ever loses his temper. To Mithé, the point of life is to improve the lives of others. This is the philosophy he takes to work.
Empress Shizaaqa | 41 | Empress of Kazin
Selfish, uncompromising, highly demanding and supremely confident. Incredible control over her emotions--even when she loses her temper she knows exactly what she's doing with it.


RAYKINIAN ROYALTY

King Mithé | 53 | Current king of Raykin
Patient to a fault, unambitious, feels more like a caretaker of the throne rather than an actual king. Bound by duty. Blunt. Prefers negotiation and avoids warfare at all costs. Never, ever loses his temper. To Mithé, the point of life is to improve the lives of others. This is the philosophy he takes to work.
Crown Prince Nolryn | 23 | Crown prince of Raykin
Responsible, very self-aware, has to know everything because 'you're royalty; it's always your fault.' Prefers to deal with problems physically rather than with words, even though he understands that steel is rarely the best answer. Quick temper, but has a relatively strong hold on it, especially in public. Not comfortable with showing outward emotion. He really, really tries his best, but he's going to make a crap king.
Queen Alurié | Deceased; age 30 | Former queen of Raykin
Bratty, impulsive, used her power for her own gain. Passionate but a complete failure as a queen.


RIDERS of the KING'S OWN

General Nimay | 20 | Swordswoman with the Own for 5 years
Stubborn, casual, open and outgoing. Has a long fuse, but once she's irritated it's best to stay clear--can take her anger out on those who weren't the cause. Doesn't understand emotional conflict, whether between individuals or nations. Tends to over-simplify things in order to deal with them.
Emon | 36 | Swordsman with the Own for 9 years
Woobie, wet blanket, pessimist, which has been a self-fulfilling prophecy most of his life. Convinced he'll fail at something, so he does. Workaholic, spends more time at the barracks than outside.
Haenel | 27 | Swordsman with the Own for almost a year
Highly strung, suffers from depression but only ever shows it when drunk, very quick-witted humour to hide it. Signed up to the Own specifically looking for a fight, but doesn't feel like he belongs.
Kurae | 36 | Swordsman with the Own for 8 years
Stony-faced, stoic, judging. Doesn't take praise well and feels uncomfortable in the public eye. Gay but hides it well, because he doesn't want to be talked about. Loves cooking.
Melraan | 29 | Swordsman with the Own for 7 years
Very casual, loves a joke. Hates tense atmospheres and will no matter what try to lighten them up. Dry, sarcastic sense of humour that turns black when around the other Own riders. Biggest show-off in the Own, but only when asked of him.
Rumal | 37 | Swordsman with the Own for 12 years
Selfish, showoff, materialistic. Best swordie in the country and flaunts it. Very sensitive about his southern origins, since he feels he's outgrown them. Generally relaxed and jovial around the swordies but he has a short fuse.
Ulkar | 33 | Swordsman with the Own for 9 years
Eternal optimist, still a country boy at heart, sees the good in everyone. Immensely proud of his tiny hometown.
Garuk | 35 | Archer with the Own for 12 years
Shy, relaxed, tolerant, happiest when training or on a mission. Hates being in the public eye and likely to snap if anyone praises him more than he thinks he deserves.
Gylepi | 30 | Archer with the Own for 7 years
Dorky daddy, casual, easy-going. Appreciates the smaller things in life. Gylepi is his family.
Murali | 38 | Archer with the Own for 8 years
Ambitious, quiet, rarely cracks a smile except when he's with the archers. Hell-bent on becoming First General. Very patient, rarely gets openly angry.
Crown Prince Nolryn | 23 | Crown prince of Raykin
Responsible, very self-aware, has to know everything because 'you're royalty; it's always your fault.' Prefers to deal with problems physically rather than with words, even though he understands that steel is rarely the best answer. Quick temper, but has a relatively strong hold on it, especially in public. Not comfortable with showing outward emotion. He really, really tries his best, but he's going to make a crap king.
Kaen | 34 | Blade archer with the Own for 10 years
Sexist, mysoginist, just plain irritating. Abusive to his wife. Charming in the extreme when he wants to be, incredible show-off and a very sore loser.
Yoryl | 26 | Blade archer with the Own for 2 years
Carefree, flamboyant, devious, really really irritating. Stereotypical blade archer, loves playing pranks and throwing things at people because he can. Showoff, life of the party, hates serious situations. Very openly gay.
Anganur | 35 | Paluman with the own for 6 years
Blokiest bloke to ever bloke. Casual, easy-going, lazy. Womaniser, low opinion of authority. The bane of every general he's served under but the best mate of everyone else.
Inel | 35 | Paluman with the Own for 9 years
Very easy-going and agreeable, down-to-earth. Loves the stories of religion and mythology. Great listener and offeres the best advice.


PALACE HEALING HOUSE

Madame Yamin | 20 | Healer for 13 years specialising in snake bites | Current head healer
Shy through necessity, hates feeling useless, compassionate. Living her life in hiding for so long has made her quiet and reserved, but she wants to change this. Exceedingly patient, to the point that people feel guilty if they've actually managed to irritate her.
Madame Auin | Deceased; age 65 | Former head healer
Strict with both patients and her girls, not much of a sense of humour, rules with an iron fist. To Auin, being a healer is just a job. Terrible bedside manner.
Lady Ronanen | 43 | Healer for 29 years
Naïve, sweet, pretty boring.
Lady Nanuka | 37 | Healer for 24 years specialising in paediatrics
Motherly, loves children, can talk to others as she does to her own kids. Loving and supportive of all the younger healers.
Lady Kathana | 46 | Healer for 21 years specialising in infectious diseases
Regretful of how her life turned out, tends to rattle of her opinions to the younger generation, who she sees wasting their lives the same way she did. Stern woman who mothers the other girls in the healing house. Loves when they come to her for advice.
Lady Ramnaré | 31 | Healer for 15 years specialising in snake bites
Very outspoken and stubborn, rarely ask for help nor accept it if offered, nor offer it herself, making her seem bitter and proud. Instant sister to any desert people. Very protective of her 'white palm' Yamin.
Lady Kelora | 28 | Healer for 14 years specialising in scorpion bites
Loud, innocent looks that she plays up when in trouble, fiery temper that nobody takes seriously. Pickpocket, initially out of need, now out of habit.
Lady Mina | 35 | Healer for 12 years specialising in bone setting
Constantly tired trying to balance work and kids. Highly dedicated to both, especially her boys. Bit of a temper, used to talking to two young boys and being obeyed.
Lady Menala | 21 | Healer for 11 years specialising in patient care
Big dreamer but without the drive or perhaps courage to put them into action. Happy, loud and bouncy, loves randomly bursting into song. Self-appointed welcoming committee for new healers.
Lady Narine | 26 | Healer for 9 years specialising in poisonous plants
Incredibly vain, unheslthy love of fashion, comes off as a bit of a ditz but does work incredibly hard and is dedicated to whatever she sets her mind to.
Lady Fali | 25 | Healer for 9 years specialising in broken bones
Party girl, takes little responsibility, prefers to have fun rather than knuckle down and work. Doesn't know when to say no, loves to spend money, especially on fashion and her friends. Very stylish.
Lii | 24 | Trainee for 1 year
Quiet, withdrawn, melanchonly. Not yet ready to move on since losing her husband just before beginning healer training. Hums often. Healing is her backup plan; wants to be a professional singer again.


FAMILIES of the KING'S OWN

Orylia | 32 | Girlfriend of Emon | Restaurateur
Hard edge but determined to keep smiling. Doesn't want the stress of her job to durn her bitter. As attached to her job as Emon is to his. Lives in Ni-Mythaa.
Lady Gii | Deceased; age 24 | Wife of Haenel | Healer
Optimistic, hard working, helpful to a fault. Often takes on people as projects and can be a little forceful in making them better, whether they wish it or not.
Aelen | 31 | Wife of Melraan
Fabulous and knows it, party girl, complete show-off, loves to spend Melraan's money on clothes and jewellery. Gives off an air of being lazy and casual but has a strict rule about no house help. Loves cooking and keeping the house clean. Mocks because she loves.
Rair | 6 | Daughter of Melraan and Aelen
Cheeky, supremely confident, frigging adorable. Completely takes after her parents, who have always been more like best friends than a romantic couple.
Sienna | Deceased; age 25 | Wife of Rumal
Likes her refinement, classy, but likes a bit of excitement in her life. Likes the bad boys. Just as vain as Rumal and just as in love with fame and fortune, too.
Lolana | 33 | Wife of Ulkar | First Company Swordswoman
Fiery and highly opinionated, joking and gregarious. Workaholic and fitness freak. Good enough to make it into the Own but stays home for the kids.
Yarmi | 4 | Youngest son of Ulkar and Lolana
Bright and cheeky, goes completely silent and runs away when strangers are around. Takes him a while to warm up to new people, but is then chirpy and loves showing off his newest toy.
Theri | 6 | Eldest child of Ulkar and Lolana
Quiet, loves learning and listening to stories, prefers sitting quietly and patting the cat rather than geing active. Not shy, just doesn't say much unless he's got something worth saying. Besties with Rair. Knows some desert magic.
Bekala | 33 | Wife of Garuk | Restaurateur
Strong, independant, very practical. Hounds Garuk to quit from the Own but largely resigned to him being there to the end now.
Aari | 27 | Wife of Gylepi | Painter
Mild-mannered, lives for her family, warm and loving. Dangerous edge to her voice when angry that her children have learned to recognise.
Lania | 7 | Eldest child of Gylepi and Aari
Bit of a brat born of Gylepi's spoiling of her. Loud, very opinionated. Loves to boss everyone around, especially the Own riders. Protective of her little brother. Either frigging adorable or annoying, depending on your stance on children.
Ruyn | 6 | Youngest son of Gylepi and Aari
Happy and mischievous, very cheeky, utterly spoiled by Gylepi. Loves toys with moving parts. Very eloquent for a six-year-old.
Mithi | 38 | Wife of Murali | Minister for Kazinian Affairs
Ambitious, workaholic, stern taskmaster.
Mali | 30 | Wife of Kaen | Former high-class prostitute
Weak, beaten child. Her whole life is ruled by Kaen. Scared of the outside world Kaen has painted. No independant thought.
Gaeli | 27 | Wife of Anganur
Socialite, cheery, very naïve and kinda dense. Trophy wife and loving it.
Hagi | 10 | Son of Inel and Fina
Whinger, bit of a brat, very much the 'younger' brother.
Qinen | 10 | Son of Inel and Fina
Cheeky but surprisingly responsible. 'Man of the house' since Inel's away so often.


RAYKINIAN ARMY

Naraan | Deceased; age 35 | Former archery master | Former archer with the King's Own
Droll, sarcastic sense of humour, open and honest, calls a spade a spade. Loves a good laugh, but can be deadly serious when required on missions. Loves kids and teaching. Awesome.
Dagger Master Nihqel | 49 | Current blade archery master | Former blade archer with the King's Own | Younger brother of Kal
Needlessly verbose but fun and cheeky.
Palu Master Goneb | 48 | Current palu master | Former paluman with the King's Own
Can't sit still, stern teacher, especially if he sees any of his students slacking off.
Sword Master Laeron | 45 | Current sword master | Former swordsman with the King's Own
Takes no shit and gives no fucks. Likes to show he has a cool head and an emotionless façade, but the right amount of niggling will make him snap. Fierce temper when he loses it.
First General Niloren | 45 | First General of the Raykinian army
Ruthless, uncompromising, every bit the man in charge. Not much of a sense of humour, patience often strained by insubordination and, worst of all, the King's Own.
Third General Haori | 51 | General of the Archers First Company | Current theory master
Loves a challenge, hunts for knowledge, great respect for her superiors. Stern woman and a strong leader, instantly commands respect when she steps into a room.


HISTORICAL FIGURES

King Yan | 1100 | Deceased; age 43 and appears that old now | First king of Yraekin
Outwardly, very stoic, uncaring and cold. Values life over everything and always has. Wars--and his family's failed attempts to bring him back to life--make him angry because of the waste of life. Master of manipulation. Never lies outright though he will bend the truth slightly or allow people to believe something else. Paranoid of sleep.
Queen Aliah | Deceased; age 60-ish | Lived ~1000 years ago | First queen of Yrae-kin
Hard, born leader, shared most of Yan's ideas. Disdained any form of weakness. Her legacy is the class system.
Princess Mina | Deceased; age 60-ish | Lived ~1000 years ago | Eldest twin daughter of King Yan and Queen Aliah
Determined, stubborn, very authoratative, even over her mother. Always asking Yan for more--more learning, magic, power. Loved the challenge of ruling. Went a little nuts after Yan died and her life's persuit was snatched from her.
Princess Aké | Deceased age 60-ish | Lived ~1000 years ago | Eldest twin daughter of King Yan and Queen Aliah
Headstrong and stubbon but always thinks of herself as being a strong leader. Mellowed over the years to become support for Mina.
Prince Noku | Deceased; age 63 | Lived ~1000 years ago | Youngest child of King Yan and Queen Aliah
Ignored as a child while trying to be useful and get attention. Bitter and cynical as a teenager. Responsible and helpful as an adult, trying to bring the community back together. Attentive, willing to teach, loving as a father.
King Qewir | Deceased; age 80-ish | Lived ~1000 years ago | Second king of Raykin
Torn between wanting power (either with crown or yrae feather) and wanting the best for his people.
Haela | Deceased; age 37 | Lived ~500 years ago | Second person to find an yrae feather
Ruled by the yrae feather. Follower, allowed everyone around her to make the decisions. Equally scared of life and death.
Raqif | Deceased; age 20 | Lived 53 years ago | Third person to find an yrae feather
Naïve, determined and stupidly optimistic. A dreamer who probably would have stuck with his search for the yrae feather even if he hadn't succeeded within days of reaching Ni-Yana.


DESERT GROUP

Laer | 46 | Family elder | Wife of Qowen | Mother of Weya, Falak and Alir
Stern, willing to listen to a point, natural leader. She'll hear two sides to a story, but once she's made her decision nothing will change it. Rules with an iron fist. Makes sure the family feels like they have to prove themselves to her.
Qowen | 46 | Family elder | Husband of Laer | Father of Weya, Falak and Alir
The mediator, fond of compromise, comparatively weak leader. Prefers to share waterholes with other families rather than fight for them. Confrontation is a waste of energy and tries to teach this to the younger generation. Expert hunter.
Gunai | 45 | Family elder | Father of Ruwi, Bihan and Kanaki
Stubborn, superiority complex, compares everyone to his deceased wife Yagenda. Stuck in the past, never allows anyone to question him because he's never wrong. Buts heads with Laer. Strong fighter.
Weya | 26 | Eldest child of Laer and Qowen | Wife of Akleru | Mother of Nida
Bitter, unsympathetic. Gives the impression she's beyond caring but probably cares more than she lets on. Picks on Alir, who she blames for her son Uli's death.
Falak | 21 | Second child of Laer and Qowen | Wife of Bihan
Hopeful. Faced many setbacks (2 stillborn children) but focuses on the positive to keep her going. Loves her family, knows the morality of the group keeps them together and alive.
Alir | 19 | Youngest child of Laer and Qowen | Husband of Kanaki
Lazy for a desert person, only does something if he's told, not through his own initiative. Good at reading people and knows what to say when something's bothering his family members. Prefers foraging to hunting.
Ruwi | 25 | Eldest child of Gunai | Husband of Lynun | Father of Hali and Leru
Future leader, good at resolving conflicts, learning from the elders. Doesn't smile much. Can be a little overbearing, forgetting he's not actually an elder yet.
Bihan | 20 | Second child of Gunai | Husband of Falak
Big child, sharp wit and ready smile. He's the 'tough guy', the one who loves to do the hard labout because he knows it makes him look good. Challenges the elders, but in a joking manner that makes it seem like he's not challenging them at all.
Kanaki | 18 | Youndest child of Gunai | Wife of Alir
Tougher than she looks, always trying to prove herself, especially to Laer. The first to try cheering someone up when they're feeling down. Very hard working, loves hunting.
Akleru | 27 | Husband of Weya | Father of Nida
Hard worker, desperate to be useful, superstitious. His mother died giving birth to him so he was cursed and is constantly trying to prove to himself he's shaken it. Always apologising for things that aren't his fault.
Lynun | 28 | Wife of Ruwi | Mother of Hali and Leru
Always well-prepared, mothering to all the children and younger adults, too. Since being nursed back to health by the group, does everything she can to pay them back.
Leru | 8 | Eldest child of Ruwi and Lynun
Loves being a big manly man learning how to make bows and fight with spears. Can be a bit of a brat, huffing around and kicking the sand when he's been told off, but he knows better than to cry.
Hali | 6 | Youngest child of Ruwi and Lynun
Very self-important, bosses people around, hard worker. Leader in the making. Looks after Nida.
Nida | 5 | Daughter of Weya and Akleru
Quiet child, hardly talks at all since her little brother's death. Very attentive, learns by copying.


OTHER RAYKINIANS

Riona | Deceased; age 33 | Mother of the twins, Yamin and Nimay
Happy, hard-working, never takes anything for granted. Very protective of her girls, always keeping them close. Her daughters are her life. Desert woman, moved to Ni-Yana at 22.
Publican Mehni | Deceased; age 33 | Father of the twins, Yamin and Nimay
Silly daddy. Cracks bad dad jokes, modest ambitions, happy to be one of the better-known pubs in the district, not necessarily the whole city. Rarely fazed.
Adviser Haoi | 51 | Chief adviser to King Mithé of Raykin
Hard, highly analytical, never switches off. Lives and breathes politics, loves the intrigue and working out solutions to please both parties.
Publican Kal | Proprietor of the Golden Thrai | Older brother of Nihqel
Jovial, open and chatty, complete gossip whore. Knows everything about everyone. Strict boss to his bar wenches but knows how to keep the balance and encourages them to chat to the patrons as much as serve them.
Kael | 45 (15-22 in Blade Archer) | Blade archer
Sniping little dick, can't take a joke, both very proud and very sensitive of his roots. As a trainee, very reliant on street skills. Knows everything and hence unwilling to learn. Quick to temper, carries a grudge.
Ynuk | Deceased; age 24 | Older brother of Kael | Assassin
Proper nasty-pasty. Bent on revenge, first for his father then the rest of his family, wouldn't give it up despite the danger he was putting his last family member in. Dangerous individual, even to those he loved.
Elara | Deceased; age 19 | Older sisster of Kael
Fiercely protective of her family, quick to temper.
Meesh | 32 | Head Eagle in Assiraz (Raykin's spies are called Eagles)
Cheeky, quick-witted, completely loyal to the Raykinian throne. Very disarming manner that will have anyone telling her their secrets while she promises not to pass them on. Fun in a cocktail bar; not entirely cover-related.


KAZINIAN ROYALTY

Empress Shizaaqa | 41 | Empress of Kazin
Selfish, uncompromising, highly demanding and supremely confident. Incredible control over her emotions--even when she loses her temper she knows exactly what she's doing with it.
Crown Princess Assili | 12 | Youngest child of Empress Shizaaqa
Far more mature than her age, hates being treated like a child. Strongly takes after her mother in her confidence and selfishness.
Prince Sahid | 20 | Eldest child of Empress Shizaaqa
Dick. He's been spoiled since the day he was born, threatens anyone with his mother, self-obsessed, can't leave a conversation without having the last word. No respect for authority, except his mother and sister. He's a bent arrow.
Prince Kanera | 17 | Second child of Empress Shizaaqa
Lazy, good at what he does, but only puts in enough effort to avoid being told off. Flamboyant and incredibly doting on the ladies in his family.
Prince Shoaib | 15 | Third child of Empress Shizaaqa
Complete wimp, timid, terrible at speaking his mind even to his brothers and sister. Hides to keep out of sight of anyone higher-ranking than him who'll tell him off.
Commanderis Rezzi | 44 | Commander for 12 years | Older brother of Empress Shizaaqa
Completely cocksure, incredibly vain, but has the respect of both his peers and his subordinates. Rarely thinks before he speaks, seems like he's not listening or paying attention but much smarter than he lets on. Likes plays.
Queen Shala | 36 | Queen of Sirrona | Younger sister to Empress Shizaaqa
Weak-willed, tries to put on a strong face but clearly knows little of what's going on. Had been expecting to take orders from Shizaaqa but left alone. Very susceptible to outside influences, follows whoever has the strongest opinion.
Queen Asera | 36 | Queen of Sissillya | Cousin to Empress Shizaaqa
Self-centred, irresponsible, very quick to anger. Impossible to deal with. Hates Shizaaqa.


BOUQUET

Strelitzia | 30 with one year in the Bouquet | Nissaya
Cutie face, 'innocent' looks, misplaced conscience. She likes to make people around her happy but doesn't identify with people she doesn't know. Also Grevillea's girlfriend.
Grevillea | 27 with one year in the Bouquet | Shaza
Volatile, angry, easily takes offence. Grevillea holds a grudge for a long time. Also Strelitzia's girlfriend.
Jasmine | 25 with one year in the Bouquet | Ruzaka
Androgynous, aloof, uses poison. She views the world with a sort of amused detachment, like she's above it all anc can get out any time she chooses.
Orchid | early 20s? with three years in the Bouquet | Syzra
Cheery, cheeky, genuine psychopath. She gets bored easily, can't sympathise at all with people, and so often her boredom ends in murder.
Banksia | 35 with three years in the Bouquet | Sissillya
Highly analytical, quick thinking, professional. She keeps people at a distance so she doesn't grow attachments that could be exploited. Keeps everyone in the Bouquet as a professional relationship.
Bluebell | 28 with four years in the Bouquet | Haysyd
So vain, money is everything. She doesn't care about anyone unless they have money. She likes her kills to be undetectable.
Waratah | 32 with four years in the Bouquet | Sirrona
Disdainful, cynical, power hungry. Waratah is better than you. She has a sarcastic remark for every comment.
Correa | 29 with five years in the Bouquet | Sijaaz
Femme fatale with everything that comes with it. Cold hard bitch but only 'you' can melt her icy heart before she kills you. Uses her sexy to get what she wants.
Rafflesia | 26 with six years in the Bouquet | Suza
Vicious, somewhat reckless. She has a creepy sense of humour that seems ready to snap towards violence at any second.
Acacia | 31 with seven years in the Bouquet | Razabes
Noble, justice fighter. She wants to see Kazin split once more into its 12 provinces and each allowed to govern itself. She has her own agenda and believes everyone should follow it.
Ylang-Ylang | 33 with eight years in the Bouquet | Assiraz
Elegant, cultured, dangerously ambitious. She remains a palace official, very much in love with Kazinian culture and especially performance arts. Familiar with Assili, but Assili doesn't know her as Ylang-Ylang.
Magnolia | 41 with eight years in the Bouquet | Sinazi
Leader, determined, strong morals. She only kills people who she thinks deserve it, and imposed herself as the Bouquet's 'leader' to tie the rest of them to her morals.
Flannel Flower | 47 | Former Bouquet assassin of 5 years | Sirrona
Completely batshit. Perfectionist, has to be the best at everything she does, arrogant, parochial and patriotic to her native Suza. Ruled by her religion and terrified of dying dishonourably.


ASSIRAZ COMMANDING CIRCLE

General Misbah | 45 | General for 10 years | Paramour to Empress Shizaaqa
Very stern, unsmiling man. Never raises his voice or openly shows anger, but there's something in his clipped words and strained voice that you know you've pissed him off.
Commander Sadiqi | 42 | Commander for 16 years | Older brother to Commander Hasan
Single-mindedly focused on war and battle. Rarely cracks a smile, disdains alcohol, very religious. Was the favourite to become next general until Zakaariss was promoted.
Commanderis Rezzi | 44 | Commander for 12 years | Older brother of Empress Shizaaqa
Completely cocksure, incredibly vain, but has the respect of both his peers and his subordinates. Rarely thinks before he speaks, seems like he's not listening or paying attention but much smarter than he lets on. Likes plays.
Commander Bazhan | 42 | Commander for 8 years
Oozes confidence but still feels a bit of a pretender. Slept his way to the top but does have a very good tactical mind.
Commander Hasan | 39 | Commander for 7 years | Younger brother to Commander Sadiqi
Cavellier, passionate, arrogant. Often counsels battle to just 'get it over with' believing that because his own army and Circle are better, they'll win easily. Throws himself whole-heartedly into any task he's given.
Commander Naved | 40 | Commander for 5 years
Very patient and calm. Likes to have all information before makding decisions. Voice of reason.
Commander Reksha | 46 | Commander for 4 years
Hard bastard, constantly tense and ready for a fight, bully. Fiercely loyal to his empress.
Commander Sholah | 37 | Commander for 4 years
Compassionate, team player, friendly. Good at reading people and knows how to endear himself to them. Can play hard ball when he needs to, but prefers to just shake hands and get on with things.
Commander Zakaariss | 25 | Commander for 2 years
Power-hungry, stony-faced, very strong control over his emotions, if indeed he experiences any. Methodical and conscious of how he appears to those in power. In it for himself. Highly skilled warrior and tactician.
General Nazir | 66 | Retired general of the Assiraz army | Father of Empress Shizaaqa
Grumpy old man. Most of his advice is well-meaning, but he does start berating the younger generations just for being young. Still respected for his military experience.


LLAYAN ROYALTY

King Keldirande | 70 | Current king of Llayad
Noble, stern and kingly to the public; proud, encouraging father and grandpa behind closed doors. Second child forced into leadership when his older sister died. Tries to take an interest in politics but makes very few decisions.
Queen Rilldana | 68 | Current queen of Llayad
No interest in politics, big socialite, loves hosting parties and putting in official appearances at functions. She wishes she could impart more wisdon on her royal-bred children and is immensely proud of them all.
Crown Princess Evelandel | 35 | Eldest child of Queen Rilldana and King Keldirande
Regal, responsible, quick-minded. Evelandel is everything that embodies a future Llayan monarch. Listens to the people, tries to find solutions for both sides, enthusiastic ruler.
Prince Georgio | 36 | Married to Crown Princess Evellandel
Casually ambitious, wants to rule rather than be a figurehead as Llayan royalty traditionally has been. Not great people skills, not an artistic bone in his body, but good at back-end politics and food/wine appreciation.
Prince Kuhedrin | 31 | Second child of Queen Rilldana and King Keldirande
Transgender man, gentlemanly and chivilrous, would be a knight if Llayad had them. Full of wonder, loves to see everything outside and around the lake Wensleydale sits on. Now a dedicated father. Strong interest in poetry.
Princess Sallieanne | 29 | Married to Prince Kuhedrin
Cheeky and coy but never malicious. Adopted as a baby by two lords with four older brothers. Met Kuhedrin through mutual love of poetry, but shy to read out her own.
Princess Amyrallyn | 27 | Third child of Queen Rilldana and King Keldirande
Social butterfly but not a fan of travel. She loves organising and attending parties, hates a boring 'night in' alone, wide circle of friends and aquaintences. Has been called demanding by man suitors; picky about Mr Perfect.
Princess Lynnlita | 24 | Youngest daughter of King Keldirande and Queen Rilldana
Stuck-up snob but doesn't realise it. Strongy opinionated, excellent debater, never takes the opposing party's argument seriously. Admires other cultures from a distance and with very naïve eyes, but is in fact very ignorant of them, thinking they're quaint and pretty but largely beneath her. Forces her Llayan ideals on everyone. Hopeless romantic.
Princess Anakarina | 8 | Daughter of Crown Princess Evellandel and Prince Georgio
Bright, inquisitive, well-mannered. She's a mature little eight-year-old, though she does have a bit of a cheeky streak which mostly manifests in asking people questions that only an eight-year-old could get away with.
Princess Temperance | 10 | Eldest adopted daughter of Prince Kuhedrin and Princess Sallieanne
Mature beyond her years after her parents died when she was five. Brave and strong, very supportive of her little sister. Just learning what it is to be a princess.
Princess Lisabetha | 8 | Youngest adopted daughter of Prince Kuhedrin and Princess Sallieanne
Very shy and timid. She's comfortable enough around the other children at the palace, but any adults outside her adoptive parents are scary.


OTHER LLAYANS

Lucibella | 19 | Youngest sister to Florien and Sebastian
Selfish, bratty teenager but slowly growing out of it. Initially hated moving to Raykin but has now pretty much gone native. Professional singer at a singing lounge in Ni-Yana's top end.
Master Lasinio | 39 | Younger Master Eynhallow | Courting Princess Amyrallyn
Hopeless romantic. Lasinio loves doting on his significant other but equally loves to receive that doting back, too. He can be a bit of a daydreamer, drifting off mid-conversation.
Rutherford | 800-ish; stopped ageing in his 40s | Dragon man
Quiet, peaceful, hopeful recluse. Lives with dragons, occasionally ventures back into the human world to see if it's learned anything yet. Very philosophical.
Master Nickellen aka Vermilion | 28 | Heir to Candlewood
Tries to act cooler, more powerful and generally better than he is. Actually a bit of a git. Tries too hard to endear himself to his townspeople, going out of his way to have conversations and buy things from them.
Niccolai | 20-30 in his story | Fictional secondary character from a Llayan fairy tale, Tooth and Claw
Fiercely protective and loyal. Vengeful for many years. Misses the domestic.


TSAYTHIS

Thiras | 38 | Random Tsaythi working in the water distillery
Enthusiastic but fundamentally bored. To her, Tsayth is a blank canvas desperately in need of paint. She's not afraid to take risks to bring excitement into her life.
Eti the Younger | 5 | Daughter of Thiras
Happy, excited, very precocious, 100% Thiras' daughter. Not afraid to speak her mind. Asks lots of questions, especially the offensice ones only a five-year-old can get away with. Intelligent child. Loves chickens.
Queen Tusa | 20 | Current queen of Tsayth
Mature, thoughtful, ready to be queen. She's out to get the best for everyone and not held back by tradition. Has ideas about where she wants to take Tsayth, but knows she's young and still needs to learn before she can implement them. Kickarse fighter.
King Si-an | 21 | Current king of Tsayth
Supportive, trustworthy, good leader and follower when required. Excited by what kingship will bring him and hasn't yet become jaded by the things he can't fixed
King Weset | 62 | Former king of Tsayth
Friendly, open, always willing to listen and offer advice. Never raises his voice, always very regal and tries to earh the respect he's given. Responsible to both his kingdom and his children.
Queen Si | 63 | Former queen of Tsayth
Resillient, positive, very go-getter kind of woman. Sensible, little more emotional than most Tsaythis. Tries anything once, and gives it a damn good shot to do it right.

Lin | Raykinian goddess of life and water
Aeia | Raykinian goddess of death and the desert
Nizaaz | Kazinian goddess of healing
Ulzaq | Kazinian god of war


FUTURE GENERATION

Princess Zhizaa | Future eldest daughter of Empress Assili and General Zakaariss
Tough, rebellious, very authoratative. Quick mind both in tactics and general quick wit. Wanted to be general until she realised the empress has more power. Also wants to be a man.
Crown Princess Shai | Future daughter of Empress Assili and General Zakaariss
Ambitious, cut-throat, very sneaky. Outwardly friendly and sweet to everyone. Second daughter but has her goals set on the throne. Shrewd in her choice of friends. Loves fashion.
Prince Dahkir | Future son of Empress Assili and General Zakaariss
Extremely ambitious, very smart, dreams of being a politician in an empire where a man's brains are only thought to be useful in the military.
Prince Keldian | Future eldest son of Princess Lynnlita and Prince Kanera
Sullen, flighty, frustrated and jealous. Superiority complex. Excited and dedicated for the first few weeks of discovering a new life's pursuit, then gets frustrated when he realises how much work it'll take to be awesome at it.
Prince Misbah | Future son of Princess Lynnlita and Prince Kanera
Grumpy, selfish little bitch. The son of two royal households but at best 20th in line to either of them, Misbah feels he deserves more than what life has offered him.
Princess Alynessa | Future daughter of Princess Lynnlita and Prince Kanera
Party girl, very split between two homelands, assertive and fiery spirit. Sits on Empress Assili's advisory panel. Fiercely defensive of those close to her. Never does anything by halves.
Prince Kristofino | Future youngest son of Princess Lynnlita and Prince Kanera
Flamboyant, performer, fabulous drag queen, asexual and unlikely to ever marry. Has no care for his royal status; playwright in a travelling players' group. Finds it hard to take anythings seriously.
