THE CLAY BORN OF ARGLETHIUM

 

Ange Tsaed

Born in the village of Kensai, in the land of the Mighty Choasa River. She is the youngest daughter of Noai and Elanai and sister to Tessi. Shunned by her village for her shortened and twisted form, her ancestors are descended from the first tribes of Arglethium. It is her bloodline which makes her sought after by the Custodian Ascendant and Voloc when Arglethium is breached.

Gildas Gol of the Graan

Former warlord and chieftain of the Graan Clans of the Northern Icelands. Gildas reputation as an iron-fisted conqueror, was known across all the middling lands of Arglethium. The youngest Graanar to take the elder chieftain sceptre of the Ice Mother, Gildas abused his gift of strength by ruling with brutality and warmongering.

Kado Kodrax

Heir to the Drax Magisterium and son of Emperor Ko Paidrax. Born into an ancient line of rulers of the lands of Drax. The Draxus believe they were blessed by the breath of the dragon, in the cycles before the elder scrolls recorded time. Kado is not favoured with military prowess or ambition but besieged with addictions and derided by even the lowest subjects of his kingdom and an embarrassment to his father.

Sa-Tuc: Assassin to Emperor Ko

Unworldly in her stealth and precision, Sa-Tuc is the lethal assassin of Emperor Ko Paidrax. Born in the slums of Hosiaan Province, she becomes a valuable teacher and protector to Ange. Who Sa-Tuc is, and the secret of her strength are revealed long with the mystery of the lost prism of Caemeris.

Lord Tias Ranik

Suzerain of the Lands of Matavia. A tyrant by any description with appetites for the perverse and sadistic. He is shrewd enough to maintain his political favour with the wealthy nobles and keep the Matavian people in subjugation. Voloc’s reach is far and wide inside the degenerate heart and mind of the Matavian ruler.

Queen Giandra Ranik

Queen of Matavia. Descendant of the oldest of Matavian families and followers of the Andiaan Flame. She rules with equal force and sadism as Ranik. She seeks all forms of power and feeds on the young to sustain her strength. The arrival of Voloc and the destruction which follows, re-ignites her ambition to become a sorceress of even greater potency.

Queen Nene Des Vries

Ruler of Aeserea. Nene is descended from a long line of compassionate monarchs of Aeserea and Irasia. Nene venerates the forests of her lands and defends her territory against their mortal enemies Matavians and Unstaadt with the ferocity of the Lionness deity. The Aesereans along with the Drax lands hold knowledge and learning in high esteem. They are the chroniclers of history while the Drax are the timekeepers. Drawn into the quest of the prism as her lands are besieged, Nene becomes an unexpected ally to Ange, Gildas and Kado.
