The Household of Caer Leon

Prince Llew ap Fiona: House Fiona Sidhe. Ruler of the Barony and heir to the duchy of SilverWater. An impossibly beautiful youth of eighteen, 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 thirteen-year-old girl, with porcelain skin, eyes of a deep violet, and luxuriant black hair often 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.

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, and he is frequently accompanied by a raven named Dar.

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-a-half-foot-tall female troll of about 25 with shoulder-length golden hair and cornflower-blue eyes, clad in a red shirt, black trousers, and black leather 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 Allicia: House Dougal Sidhe. A member of Lord Waylon's entourage. A heavyset woman of about 30, with brown hair and thick glasses, she is confined to a motorized wheelchair. She dresses in a baggy tunic and trousers in her House colors.

Ossian: House Fiona Sidhe. Bard of the Silver Lion. A sweet-faced boy of thirteen, 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 thirteen-year-old tomboy 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 boy of about thirteen, 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. A recent arrival from the Tuath of Shadows (the Isle of Skye) in the United Kingdom, he still retains its accent in his speech.

She prefers to wear a green leather bodice and darker green scarf (and not much else!), and generally carries a flute, fiddle, or bodhran (a small drum).

Karl Jensen: Redcap artist. A typical example of his kith, though he seems less fierce than many other redcaps due to his Seelie nature and Calandra's instructions in joie de vivre.

A tall, slender woman with hip-length blue-black hair that flows about her like a cloak, and fathomless deep blue eyes.

Hermione: Sluagh. A small, delicate waif with moon-pale skin, a mantle of black hair, and deep violet eyes (rather attractive for one of the underfolk).

The Lost Girls

Evalie: House Liam Sidhe and leader of the motley. A young woman of about twenty with multicolored hair, aquamarine eyes, and fair skin that flushes easily whenever she is gripped by strong emotions.

Shaaza: Satyr exotic dancer. 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.

Tula: Eshu. A dark-skinned girl of perhaps fourteen, with long jet-black hair and brilliant green eyes. She prefers to wear a sleeveless brocade vest over a white blouse, full trousers gathered at her ankles, and short leather boots.
