The Land of Ice Dragon
Names and Places
Abydell – the dead wife of Aric Tamusi and the former Queen of Claymoor Doom. In a last ditch effort to save the Kingdom of Nor Ferry Mire from falling, the king and queen betrothed their daughter, Abydell, to the Crown Prince of Claymoor Doom. Abydell's father, King Silver Raven, died of pneumonia shortly before the royal wedding, and with no son having been born to inherit the throne, when Aric and Abydell wed, the kingdoms merged. Eventually this is what gave Aric the idea to consolidate the kingdoms.
Aric Tamusi – The young King of Claymoor Doom. He ascended to the throne when he was only twelve years old after his father was killed in the uprising of Amberlava in the northern forests. He was betrothed from birth to Abydell Raven, daughter of King Silver Raven, which added an entire kingdom to Claymoor Doom.
Caewyth – Abydell's twin sister who was given away at birth as payment to a sorceress whose talent with herbs and spells helped the Queen of Nor Ferry Mire to become pregnant. In dire need of an heir, the pregnancy resulted in twin girls. The original price, which was never disclosed, was changed to the witch taking away one of the twins. The witch was from the Kingdom of Riven Slade where she spirited the infant. Caewyth was raised by a coven, the original sorceress disappearing shortly thereafter. The coven fell into poverty. The head of the coven knew where Caewyth came from and thinking to blackmail for their silence, traveled to Nor Ferry Mire kingdom only to find it had fallen to the Kingdom of Claymoor Doom. She traveled further on to the Castle of Claymoor Doom and met with Prince Relel who pretended to be his brother, the king. Relel paid the coven off for their silence and had Caewyth moved to Dark Marsh where he began his secret plan to have her impersonate her sister, Queen Abydell.
Cetin gang – A destructive gang of thugs who loved to demolish as much as it loved to pillage. They became adept at flaunting their ability to escape King Aric in every venture. They were also responsible for the beating death of a very dear friend and subject of Aric's and he vowed to see them caught and punished.
Kurk Kuro - (His Grace, Lord) – Duke of the Province of the Moon, he is in love with Liarta.
Diagus Amar - Grew up as half-brother to Joron even though, as it turned out, they were not brothers at all, and was the Crown Prince of Blade Rain. After Oxys died he ascended to the throne and became the King of Blade Rain.
Erora Amar – Queen of Blade Rain, wife to King Oxys Amar. She is mother to both Diagus and Liarta.
Fali - sick daughter of Hawklin
Hawklin – The father who came to Blade Rain for the medicine that would save his young daughter's life, a medicine that was only produced and available in the royal infirmary.
Kinnabe – Prince Joron's valet and trusted companion
Liarta – Grew up as sister to Diagus and half-sister to Joron. She is the daughter of Queen Erora but, as it turns out, it is unclear who her father is. She is in love with the Duke of The Provence of the Moon, a fairly influential province in the kingdom of Blade Rain, which sits on the edge of the Blade Rain, bordering with Thunder Wolf Kingdom. The Province of the Moon is the first line of defense against the crazy king who presides over Thunder Wolf.
Lord VenTorry – He was Oxys' friend, originally from Stone Mire where he was the confidant and close companion of Duke Mormir until the Duke died. Unfortunately, since Erora was making constant visits to Stone Mire, he became obsessed with her. He was insanely jealous of Mormir's and Erora's relationship but he kept Mormir's secret that he was Diagus' real father. When the Duke died a very mysterious death, he had a suspicion Erora may have had a hand in it but said nothing. He moved to Blade Rain, befriending the promiscuous Oxys so he could be close to Erora. But Erora doesn't give him the time of day. Frustrated his advances are snubbed at every turn, VenTorry becomes angry and starts dropping hints to the king about his wife's possible involvement in the long ago death of Mormir. When Oxys comes to that same conclusion, and unfortunately sees, with the help of VenTorry, that his own illness mirrors Mormir's, he has VenTorry pen a letter to the King of Claymoor Doom, asking for assistance. VenTorry decides to use the letter to finally live out his fantasy concerning the queen. Believing the letter will come to nothing since the death was twenty four years ago, he chooses to duplicate the letter and commissioned a young lad to deliver the original to King Tamusi. VenTorry flaunts the fake letter in front of the queen, telling her he will not deliver it if she has sex with him. What he doesn't know is that the queen is determined to keep her secrets, even if she has to murder… again.
