Neredl

Neredl's life has been a complicated one. He spent an unknown number of years in the wild, living like any other elf: solitary and animalistic. When the mercenary, Durayl Silverborne, released him from his captivity with a crazed rich man who had named him Heshtar, and wanted the elf to be trained to be his son and heir, Neredl's mind fractured. The training, punishment, and life that conflicted entirely with his nature broke him, and Neredl became something no one had ever seen before. He latched on to Durayl as his savior, committing himself to the man and his service. Neredl serves now as a deadly assassin, his natural abilities and rage at what was done to him creating a terrifying being that Durayl has found to be of the utmost value.

Orsack

Orsack is a troll. One that thinks, feels, and behaves in ways no troll has ever behaved before. This puts him in good company in the employ of the mercenary captain, Durayl Silverborne, as Durayl's retinue is made up exclusively of unique individuals. Captured by a group of Vessaria and used as an attraction in their traveling show, Orsack spent years in utter misery, pain, and loneliness. When he was rescued by Durayl, he pledged his boundless strength and rage to the man's service, both of which have proven invaluable time and time again. He also formed a bond with the twisted Belmius, possibly due to their shared inability to communicate effectively with the rest of the world. Or possibly due to their shared desire to inflict pain on everyone outside their tiny circle of allies.

Captain Eragon

Third in command of the armies of Terne, Captain Eragon is one of the longest-serving members of the military. He is also one of its more unusual members in many ways. The son of a minor nobleman of southern Terne, Eragon was the fifth of nine children, and utterly unexceptional in every way. Not particularly intelligent, athletic, or charismatic, he seemed to stumble blindly into good fortune, and had an almost supernatural knack for being in the right place at the right time. As he fought his way through the conquest of Lorat, he continuously impressed or confused superiors by his ability to survive deadly situations. There was frequently some uncertainty as to whether or not his deeds were intentional, or if blind luck had seen him through something he did not even fully understand. Still, he proved a more than capable swordsman, and men responded favorably to his ability to defy expectations and sometimes, it seemed, all of natural law. Eventually, Wilfrem Eresgot saw little choice but to elevate him to a captain's rank, and he proved more adept in the role than anyone had anticipated... as per usual.

Krees

The tiny, gnomish head bookkeeper of Terne is a mystery to one and all. The man's ability to remember figures, calculate sums, and somehow juggle all the many complicated finances of the kingdom and its leaders defies all probability. Krees also has several unsettling traits: he seems never to sleep, eat, or leave his office before the great vault; despite never leaving, he seems to know an extraordinary amount about the world outside the vault; and most disconcerting of all, he seems to have always been there, looking just as he does, now. No one can remember a time pre-Krees, and no one can remember him ever being anything less than an ancient man, much less a young one.

Relex Unara

Relex Unara is what every commoner believes a politician to be, and what every politician dreams of being. He is ruthless, self-serving, egotistical, conniving, and dangerous. He is also magnificent at portraying himself as the voice of the common man: a proud defender of the rights of the people of Uremshir, who every day battles with the evil rulers of Terne on their behalf. Unfortunately for Relex Unara, his scheming and cleverness ended the night Durayl and Neredl broke into Tenre palace and ended his career with a dagger across the throat. Yet, in death, Relex Unara's shadow looms greater still, and the peace and security of the kingdom has become increasingly fragile with each day that has passed since his untimely demise. Or is there more to his death than it appears? Was it inspired by something more than the anger of one of his people or his fellow politicians? Relex Unara was always a master at saying one thing and meaning another. His end might have followed this same pattern of behavior.

Xeranax

The foul-tempered merphite first-mate of Captain Reinoa is as salty as the sea and twice as unpredictable. He adheres to a bizarre code of self-preservation at all costs married with a deep loyalty toward the woman who gave him a chance after his troubled past had left him with no other options in life. He has no desire to be anyone's friend, and practically relishes the hatred he inspires in those under Reinoa's command. Yet, he is effective at keeping order and his ability to maneuver beneath the waters of the Krees has proven invaluable to Reinoa on more than one occasion. When Reinoa's ship is destroyed during their late-night trek through its waters, he appears lost to its depths, but there is no one more at home within the river's dark depths than Xeranax, and its chances of finishing the nasty little man off seem highly unlikely.

Lord Nerium Pasanov

Lord Nerium Pasanov, ruler of the desolate and often-brutal Roe, is not-so-affectionately called The Royal Brat by some of his contemporaries, who see him as nothing more than a hot-headed bully. After replacing the popular Councilman Guizel Bellacourt, who had held the throne for the young lord until he came of age following his father's passing, Nerium immediately began rubbing his fellow rulers the wrong way. He sent Guizel off continent as an ambassador, and the man whom Roe had loved more than its previous king died in a storm. His attitude was one of arrogance and privilege, which the people of Roe could admire as long as deeds had backed it up. Nerium had none of which to speak. Dressed constantly in a suit of black armor, as though he were a seasoned warrior and not a mere boy with no accomplishments to his name, he drew the ire of many, but has shown a steely resolve and an unwillingness to be bullied that has slowly drawn the admiration of many of his people, if not his fellow rulers. With the threat of war against an unknown adversary looming, the question of how and if Lord Nerium will stand by Terne is being raised by many.
