 Chapter 1 – Chapter 2


 

 

Ember Memeelis

Species: Domestic (Sarladar)

Gender: Female

Age: 13

Ember is a Domestic (or “Sarladar” in the old language) with a great interest in books and a greater fear of water. She’s not very confident in herself and she avoids strangers, but she’s confident in those close to her, and uses what she’s read to try to help them however she can. She can sometimes come across as a know-it-all due to her dislike of false information, but she’s really just trying to help.

Ember was raised by Flint along with Bernin and Cole in the ruins of a town in the forest Briarwood. She refuses to become a demon like her father, and is willing to leave everything behind to prevent it.

She’s a bit of a bookworm, and she’s spent a lot of time going through the ruins looking for books that have survived, and learning anything she can from them.

While she has unwillingly been along on several hunts, she dislikes violence and killing, and has no real training in combat.

From her books, she’s learned a lot about magic and how it works, but despite her best efforts she can only manage a small puff of smoke or flame, nothing compared to the abilities of a full-fledged mage.

Due to her own shortcomings in magic and from what she’s read from her books, she’s become convinced that magic is fading from the world, and it may even disappear within her lifetime.

Despite what’s been shown so far, blue fur is almost unheard of in Sai-vay, and what causes it is unknown.


Bernin Memeelis

Species: Domestic (Sarladar)

Gender: Male

Age: 15

Bernin is the only one of his siblings that can successfully use magic, and excels at making fire.

In addition to being the “strongest” of his siblings, he’s known for being extremely stubborn and independent, even if relying on someone else is the smart thing to do.

While he generally doesn’t like being around people and can be hotheaded, he rarely resorts to physical violence, and enjoys silent company.

Despite his exceptional skill with fire, he is never satisfied with his own strength, and constantly works to reach his own ridiculous expectations.


Cole Memeelis ch 1

Cole Memeelis

Species: Domestic (Sarladar)

Gender: Male

Age: 15

Cole is the most content of his siblings, and least driven to learn magic. Unlike his siblings, he enjoys being in the company of others, and will go out of his way to help other people.

While he’d rather stay home and keep things the way they are, he understands that his brother and sister need him, and that if they stay, Flint will only get worse.

Cole is a bit notorious for socializing with Flint occasionally, but other than that he is well liked by Lupa’s pack and his family.

He is also a bit full of himself , and loves telling stories of successful hunts or achievements (occasionally stretching the truth).


Flint Memeelis ch 1

“Flint”

Species: Unknown

Gender: Male

Age: 34

Flint is the “father” of Ember, Bernin and Cole. While it’s assumed he’s the same species as his “children”, his devotion to the dark god have twisted his mind and body into something else entirely.

Flint is obsessed with gathering strength for his god, and is willing to sacrifice everything in his name. He spends a lot of time by himself, usually staying inside as long as the sun is up. He feels very strongly about his opinions, and refuses to take the views of others into consideration (his views often conflict with Ember’s, leading to conflict).

 Flint considers Bernin the strongest and most competent of his children, and looks to his god to strengthen Ember and Cole.


Lupa

Species: Grey Wolf (Rougi)

Gender: Female

Age: 32

Lupa is the demon in charge of raising Keine, Echo, Ariah and Loki. She doesn’t get along well with Flint, so she stays in the woods, moves around a lot and hunts whatever her pack can catch.

Unlike Flint, Lupa lets her children move at their own pace, and isn’t worried about if they will become demons or not.

Lupa isn’t very strict, but when she makes a decision, she doesn’t mind using violence to enforce it.

Not much is known about her past, how she knows Flint, or how her and Flint got the children, just that she had something to do with the destruction of the town Flint’s family currently resides in.

Lupa possesses a pendant with an unusually strong enchantment, but it’s uncertain whether it serves any purpose other than preserving a family heirloom.


Keine Ayna ch 1

Keine

Species: Grey Wolf (Rougi)

Gender: Male

Age: 14

Keine is Lupa’s son, and part of her pack that lives deep in Briarwood. He enjoys goofing around while Lupa isn’t around, and tends to sneak off with one or two of his clan mates to play freely.

Keine is constantly trying to outdo Echo’s hunting and fighting skills, but the age gap makes it extremely difficult.


Echo Cenra ch 1

Echo Cenra

Species: Dusk Wolf (Quelladar)

Gender: Male

Age: 17

Echo is the last surviving member of the Cenra bloodline, who were some of the first to break away from the dark god and form the quelladar race. Being the oldest, Echo helped Lupa hunt and provide for the younger members of their pack, and Echo has come to see them as younger siblings.

Echo acts mature despite his youth, and if he disagrees with someone he quickly lets them know that they are wrong, even if it’s Lupa he’s talking to.

Along with Flint and Lupa, Echo was there when the town around Flint’s house was destroyed. Despite Ember’s prying, Echo refuses to talk about it.


Ariah Fataia ch 1

Ariah

Species: Timber Wolf (Learim)

Gender: Female

Age: 12

Ariah is the youngest member of Lupa’s pack, and is gifted in nature magic. She likes being around people, and fantasizes about meeting new people in the towns outside Briarwood. Ariah is particularly fond of Ember, since she knows a lot about the outside world, and is the only other girl she knows that is close to her age.

When Lupa’s pack visits Flint’s home, Ariah usually spends her time with the largest group of people, trying to make the most of their time together.

With her nature magic, Ariah can make plants grow at an incredible rate, and can bend them to her will. She also has the ability to heal, but like the rest of her magic, she still isn’t good at controlling it.


Loki Asar ch 1

Loki

Species: Red Wolf (Renid)

Gender: Male

Age: 13

Loki is the lowest member of Lupa’s pack. He’s usually chasing bugs, playing with Keine, or competing with someone in a task he isn’t too good at.

Even though he isn’t too skilled, he enjoys testing himself, and rarely considers his shortcomings.

When Loki was younger he broke a tooth. If someone asks about it, he uses the opportunity to “practice his story telling”.
