The Main Characters:
Sir Damryn: human paladin- a holy knight of the Order of the Rose Shield. Damryn is a loyal and stalwart paladin of Vanshar the god of Justice and Truth. He hails from a long line of knights and well respected leaders. However, his family has recently fallen away from the truth of Vanshar as his great uncle was one of the rebellious leaders of the Imperial Army that turned against King Everett Avalon I and essentially began the War of Dissolution. H ehas returned to Greenvale with his friends from the battlefront and seeks to find the path that Vanshar has for him. If along the way he can restore the honor of his family name, then all the better.
Jacob: human fighter- rough and tumble warrior who served the Empire well during the War of Dissolution( civil war). He has a lot of battle scars to show for his efforts ,but has found his heart brings him back to Greenvale. Though raised by man who was not his biological father, Jacob has a soft spot for his homeland and if truth be told , his love of Greenvale was the main reason for his willingness to lend his sword to the Empire. Jacob is a man of few words and little patience for elaborate conversations.
Nimbles: halfling sorceror- small and quick this fleet-footed halfling is a bit of a quirky fellow. He served the Empire on special missions with his half-elven friend, Samuel. Though not of great stature, his ability to remain unseen and use magic has worked to his advantage. He has a special relationship with the world of Fey that even he does not completely understand. Nimbles child-like appearance and penchant for eating candy always leaves a strong impression with those he meets for good or ill. He has come to Greenvale to see if he can fit in with Samuel and his people ,but also to explore his own mysterious soul through contact with a halfling mystic known as Madame Hilde.
Kethra Pentalldrin: human fighter – Marrying at the ripe old age of 13, this fire brand of a young woman bore two children to a wealthy merchant , Michael Pentalldrin of Greenvale. Though their was no love in the marriage of two, so far apart in years, the arrangement did suit the family. When her children were still young, her husband Michael was murdered by bandits while travelling to the sea port of Winecrest. This attack was purportedly one of several that started the war that ripped through the Empire of Thassolonia. A few years into the War, her eldest son, Barian, chose to join the ranks of the Imperial forces and apprenticed to Jacob( see above). During these difficult times, many folks in Grenvale had to pitch in to keep the town safe. Kethra showed her quality in the use of the bow. She became one of the town's most skilled hunters and helped to thwart attacks by several goblyn raiders. One year before the signing of the Accords of Peace, Jacob sent word to her of her son's death at the battlefront. Though dealt a horrible blow , she was not defeated. She decided that her daughter, Clea, could best use her natural talents in business in Winecrest under the watchful eye of her somewhat mysogynistic grandfather, Elias Stonebridge while Kethra would quell the growing sorrow in her heart by taking an even more aggressive role in re-building her homeland.
Samuel: half-elf rogue- born of human father and elven mother, Samuel goes by many names depending on with which race he is working. He grew up in Greenvale and due to his father's influence as Regent Mayor( a one year position given to him after the then Lord Mayor was murdered in a goblyn raid), Samuel gained some respect in the mostly human settlement. Though his mother left when he was young, he still had good relations with many of the Elven Nations of the Rainlands. This contact and his own welcoming personality made him a prime choice for receiving and entertaining elven diplomats from the Rainlands. The War brought on a new role for Samuel as his skills as a scout were used by the Empire to run quick strikes against enemy caravans using well known trade routes. He developed a friendship with Jacob , Damryn, and Nimbles through his military experience, and like Jacob considers the good of Greenvale above most others. However, deep within himself, his elven ancestry is still a bit of mystery and the lands ruled by the Fey still call to him.
