Cast of Characters

 

Maven Istravel

As a very young orphan elf girl raised among humans, her behavior doesn’t differ from the girls her age. She is cheerful quick, naïve, and tends to be sensitive. She cries when she wants to cry, laugh when she wants to laugh, even shows courage when situation calls for it.

 

Reyl Adelant

Reyl is a teen who is becoming an adult, forged by his struggle as an independent travelling merchant. He looks at the world coldly, without much willingness to interact with people even though he possesses the appropriate charisma and attractiveness for it.

 

Sophia Wellss

Comfortable with a handsome lover and a capable magic instructor, this witch girl chooses to spend most of her time to learn from her teacher, Nepathya Lei rather than building a firmer relationship with Reyl.

 

Declan Pervius

Truth be told, Declan doesn’t mind to be always thought as a ‘brother’ by Maven when they are once raised together in Saint Ambrosius Monastery. However, after they part ways for years and meet again, Declan begins to grow an attraction for Maven, his foster sister.

 

Nepathya Lei

Lei is a woman who has to give up her beauty due to an accident. She then becomes a magic instructor for Sophia, for seeing a great potential in that girl. Strangely enough, Lei sometimes seems to be obsessed to match Reyl with Sophia.

 

Nigel DiMessina

Nigel is a wandering cleric who later stays in Saint Ambrosius Monastery to raise and teach Maven. It turns out that his most gifted student is Declan.

 

Calhoun Cavendier

Like a wolf, Calhoun, the leader of the Viperwolves appears and almost always behaves wildly. Only his love for his wife, Theana LaSalle that enables him to restrain himself as a foster father for Maven.

 

Theana LaSalle

Femme Fatale, a fighter and vice leader of the Viperwolves has long been craving to become a mother, because she doesn’t had any child with her husband, Calhoun. Eventually, Theana showered her motherly feelings upon Maven, without forgetting to educate Maven harshly like a professional bandit she is.

 

Croac le Toadt

The resemblance of Croac’s appearance to a frog, as well as his occasionally harsh behavior gives the impression that this mayor of Redne is a cruel tyrant. In fact he is a father and a husband who strives to do his role in the best way he can.
