Gilwyn is the daughter of Duncan, the captain of the town watch in Mosport. She is the only daughter, her mother having died years ago. Duncan and Gilwyn have a great relationship. He has spent time teaching her the art of fighting, so that she may better protect herself against the dangers of the world. Achilles is Gilwyn’s faithful companion, a dog. Supposedly Gilwyn has no sense of humor, but that is debatable. After all, I’ve been told she can occasionally be heard saying, “Achilles, heel!”

Camelia is from a small farming community about half a day’s walk from the town of Mosport. She has three younger brothers who have turned old enough to start helping out on the farm. Her family has never been wealthy, and she has recently left home to see the world beyond what she knows, and maybe gain some wealth. While she knows how to defend herself, she will not start a fight, and will only fight back to defend herself or her friends. She’s quite skilled in the outdoors, and has an affinity with animals, even being able to occasionally speak with them. This is a skill her family has never understood where it comes from.

Merral, a battle wizard, comes from a city which employs both soldiers and wizards in the militia. He chose the latter profession. He is very curious and impulsive, often living on the edge, while at the same time selfless and charitable. But Merral has an enemy. Someone is after him, but he does not know who it is. This unknown enemy somehow managed to get Merral fired from his position in the city militia, so Merral ran. He is now far from home, seeking answers and trying to understand who is after him.
