Character List

Maura of Dunlath

Alan of Pirate's Swoop

They meet when he's eight and she's 13, marry at 23 and 28.

Their Children

Rilla of Dunlath - Heiress apparent. Dark, wavy hair; hazel eyes. Born 1-2 years after A/M marriage. She's Douglass's godsdaughter, and his favourite. Rilla is Julian's confidante. She studies at the Royal University for a time, but is normally found at Dunlath.

Theodore of Dunlath - Two years younger than Rilla, and a world apart. He trains to be a knight, and Ansis of Cavall is his best friend. Closer to Clarisse and his mother than anybody else in the family, much to Douglass's dismay. His arch nemesis is Lord Theodore. Only his mother and May, and sometimes Clarisse, are allowed to call him 'Teddy'.

Julian of Dunlath - Gifted, trains to be a priest at the City of the Gods. Strawberry-blond hair, most closely resembles Alan. Rarely at home after he leaves to begin studying, and a little closed off from the rest of the family, but gets on well with Rilla.

Clarisse of Dunlath - Heathen. Alan's favourite (partly because she strongly resembles Maura), enjoys causing havoc (particularly where it affects Julian or Rilla). Has Alan’s temper. Theodore adores Clarisse and they’re very close. She has a brown cat named Eugene. Trains to be a Rider.


Douglass of Veldine - assigned to be Maura's Knight Protector... and never left.

Lord Theodore - the brains behind the fief.

Ansis of Cavall - revels in telling awful jokes. Two years older than Theodore, a frequent visitor to Dunlath (though not always for Theodore...). Son of Margarry and Owen, heir to Cavall. Blond with Owen's grey eyes. Was Theodore's sponsor. Also training to be a knight!

Victoria May of Naxen - daughter of Gilmyn and Dolsa. Has an older sister (Agatha Christine). Sometimes known as 'Ducky', mostly known as 'May'. Long blonde curls and brown eyes.

Edmund of Lisafer - attends the City of the Gods with Julian. Black hair, blue eyes.

Hector of Disart - training to be a Rider with Clarisse.
