Being a List of the Prominent Kithain in the Freehold of Caer Leon, Baronial Seat of the Silver Lion
Prince Llew: House Fiona sidhe. Ruler of the Barony and heir to the duchy of SilverWater. An impossibly beautiful youth with hair like the sun and eyes the vivid blue of a summer sky. He has a fondness for dressing in red silk and black velvet, often trimmed with silver.
Princess Niamh: House Eiluned sidhe. Llew's little sister and court Seer. A slender, delicate teenaged girl, with porcelain skin, eyes of a deep violet, and luxuriant black hair sometimes bound up in a snood trimmed with polished quartz crystals. She dresses in gowns of black and silver, carries a crystal sphere, and is often accompanied by her pet, a winged black cat named Ebony.
Lady Alexandria: House Gwydion sidhe. Chamberlain of Caer Leon. A straight-backed woman in her mid-to-late twenties, with red-gold hair worn piled atop her head, eyes of a shade midway between blue and green, and generally possessed of a severe expression. She wears high-necked gowns of dark green velvet, fastened at the waist with a girdle of gold and emeralds, from which dangles a large ring of keys.
Lady Sharanya ("Shari"): House Eiluned sidhe originally from the Kingdom of Willows. Prince Llew's fiancée. A slender, graceful young woman with long black hair, dyed with silver streaks, and autumn-gold eyes. She has a crescent moon tattooed on her right breast, and her ears are pierced with many rings. She generally wears revealing outfits in shades of midnight blue and burgundy, complemented by a silver choker bearing the sigil of House Eiluned.
Robur Dwyn: Satyr affiliated with House Fiona. Squire to Prince Llew. A young satyr in his late teens, with red hair, blue eyes, and a ready smile. His leg pelt is a red-brown color, and he often wears clothing in Fiona colors (much of it previously owned by Prince Llew – not that Robur seems to mind).
Sir Kellin: House Scathach sidhe. Captain of the Baronial Guard. A man in his mid-twenties, with raven-black hair and storm-gray eyes, a serious expression, and a swordsman's muscles. He is nearly always clad in black plate mail with silver trim, and a surcoat bearing the black unicorn crest of his House. Both sword and dagger hang at his belt.
Sir Cormac: House Scathach sidhe. Councillor to Prince Llew. A darkly-tanned man in his mid-twenties with dark brown eyes and black hair that falls to his shoulders, dressed in a vest, trousers, loincloth, and boots of buckskin. He carries a deerskin pouch on his belt, and arms himself with a spear. All in all, he presents a rather wild appearance.
Lord Waylon: House Dougal sidhe. Councillor to Prince Llew. A heavyset man in his late fifties (placing him firmly in grumpdom), with blue eyes and hair gone entirely to gray. He walks with a limp, and is fond of lamenting about how much better things were back in "the good old days." He dresses simply, in a tunic bearing his House crest, serviceable trousers, and sensible shoes.
Sir Athos: House Liam sidhe. Liaison between the barony and Count Garrett ap Liam of the Verdant Glade. A slender, quiet man in his late twenties with light brown hair and brown eyes, rather plain for a sidhe, clad in a blue shirt and gray trousers, with a pendant in the shape of the blasted silver tree of his House around his neck. He has a French accent, and walks with a cane (due to an old injury).
Lady Arianrhod: House Liam sidhe. Liaison between the barony and Count Garrett ap Liam of the Verdant Glade, and Sir Athos's wife. A vivacious woman of about 25 with a mane of auburn hair and emerald-green eyes, clad in blue and silver. A silvery sword, worked on the pommel with her House crest, hangs at her belt.
Lady Freya Odinnsdöhter: Troll affiliated with House Fiona. Sir Kellin's second-in-command. A seven-and-three-quarter-foot-tall female troll of about 25 with shoulder-length golden hair and cornflower-blue eyes, clad in a loose shirt, black trousers, and Nordic-looking armor (sometimes with a House Fiona surcoat on top). She usually bears a sword and dagger at her belt.
Lady Althea: House Liam sidhe. Baronial physician. A quiet, bespectacled woman in her late twenties, with honey-brown hair braided and coiled low on her neck, a fair complexion subject to the rare blush, and wide-set chocolate-brown eyes. She dresses simply, in modest gowns in soft blue, accented with sapphires set in silver for court.
Lady Jessamine: Eshu originally from the Kingdom of Willows. Attendant to Lady Sharanya. A slender young woman with café-au-lait skin, fathomless dark eyes, and a cap of dark brown ringlets. She dresses in brightly-colored frocks that set off her coloring to best advantage, preferring warm yellows, oranges and reds, with a few pieces of golden jewelry for accents.
Shaaza: Satyr exotic dancer, and the object of Robur's affections. A Wilder satyr who appears to be about eighteen, with a mane of tousled red-gold hair and rich blue-violet eyes. Her leg pelt is a rich auburn, and she often paints her hooves a brilliant red. She frequently dresses in tight-fitting tops that accentuate her deep cleavage, and as little as she can get away with on her legs. She has a rose tattooed on her left breast, and wears small gold rings in her nipples.
Lord Julien: House Eiluned sidhe. Court scribe of Caer Leon. A slender youth in his late teens with luxuriant black hair and dark, mysterious eyes, he prefers to dress in a full-sleeved, high-necked tunic of white silk, slit at the sides for ease of movement, over tight black trousers and exquisitely tooled leather boots. He is rarely seen without a writing kit or a leather-bound book.
Sir Gunthar Mountaincrusher: Troll affiliated with House Eiluned, a close friend of Lord Julien, and a member of the Baronial Guard of the Silver Lion. In his late teens, he's just over eight feet tall, with an abundant crop of dark blond hair and icy blue eyes. He's most often seen in a chain mail hauberk, tight-fitting leather breeches, and boots. A broadsword hangs at his belt.
Lady Drusilla: House Scathach sidhe. A member of the Baronial Guard of the Silver Lion. A striking young Kithain with raven-black hair to her waist, deep midnight-blue eyes, and an unblemished porcelain complexion. She favors outfits in deep, strong colors, and always wears the black unicorn crest of her House somewhere on her person.
Lady Aeryn: House Scathach sidhe. A member of the Baronial Guard. A woman in her mid-to-late twenties, with a slender, athletic frame. Her jet-black hair is woven into a series of elaborate braids ornamented with black feathers and silver bands, and her eyes are a clear silver-gray. She dresses in a white shirt with full sleeves, tight black trousers, and knee-high black leather moccasin boots, covered by a tunic of black mail for battle. A silver disk enameled with a black unicorn's head hangs at her throat, and a matched pair of knives hangs at her belt.
Lita: Troll affiliated with House Fiona, and a member of the Baronial Guard. A female troll in her late teens, with brown hair pulled back in a ponytail and pale green eyes. She generally wears silver armor under a House Fiona surcoat. A war hammer hangs at her belt.
Ossian: House Fiona sidhe. Prince Llew's herald and court bard of the barony of the Silver Lion. A handsome teenager with luxuriant russet curls and sparkling emerald-green eyes. He has a penchant for dressing in black velvet breeches, low boots, and a tunic of red silk bearing the Silver Lion crest of his House. He frequently carries a small lap harp of rich, warm brown wood with silver strings.
Ceilidh: House Scathach sidhe. Squire to Sir Kellin. A vivacious teenager with thick black hair, bound up in a ponytail by a silver ribbon, and sparkling emerald-green eyes, dressed in a black leather jerkin with her House crest sewn over the heart, a white shirt, and gray trousers and boots, with a short sword at her belt. Often accompanied by a small white unicorn named Aoife.
Kieran: House Scathach sidhe. Squire to Sir Kellin. A quiet, serious teenager with unruly black hair and ice-blue eyes. He usually wears a plain black leather jerkin over a white shirt, and dark gray trousers and boots, with a fine short sword at his belt. Born on the Isle of Skye in the United Kingdom, he still retains its accent in his speech.
Rei: Eshu. Assistant to Lady Althea. A pretty Asian girl in her late teens, with waist-length blue-black hair and fathomless dark eyes. She prefers to wear a white jacket and red pantaloons, with Japanese tabi and zori sandals on her feet. She is known as a mistress of Soothsay.
Hermione: Sluagh, and a close friend of Princess Niamh. A small, delicate waif with moon-pale skin, a mantle of black hair, and deep violet eyes (rather attractive for one of the underfolk). She wears long-sleeved and high-necked black dresses that have a somehow classical feel to them (a long, flowing silhouette with many folds).
Rena: House Scathach Sidhe. Squire to Lady Aeryn. A slender girl in her early teens with a mane of raven hair and brilliant blue-green eyes. She is generally garbed in a loose white shirt, over black tights and low boots. A pendant shaped like a raven (a gift from Lady Aeryn) hangs around her neck on a delicate silver chain.
