Main Characters


Drianna Snarevine
Name pronunciation: Dree-ah-nah
Age: 24
Occupation: Fugitive Recovery Agent
Rank: Captain
Drianna is the captain and owner of the Shrike. She's well aware of its perceived shortcomings but it has great sentimental value to her and it's served her well. She's very focused on her career, so being stranded on Keverynn threw her for a loop. She doesn't deal well with inaction. She always needs to be doing something. She's a pessimist and an extrovert and can be a bit narrow-sighted at times. Strategy is something she's quite good with though she's prefer to bash her way through her problems.

She has an addiction to a prohibited substance known as Dreamsticks. Made by wrapping a blend of cured herbs in a long, thin roll of brown paper, these are highly addictive and can have mild hallucinogenic effects. The best and most expensive ones are made with fire cured herbs while the cheapest are air cured. Use of these is highly frowned on by the Central Medical Board (CMB) as studies have proved that long term use has been linked to serious health problems. The Agency strictly prohibits use of this drug by any of its members though this policy is difficult to enforce; the herbs used are largely innocuous on their own and it’s only in this particular combination that they become dangerous. The standard forms of drug screening won’t pick up on it. If an Agent is caught using dream sticks, they will be fired. If the infraction is severe enough there may be a fine or even jail time involved. She's aware of this and yet continues to use them. She's done so from the age of 17.


Ashrinn Chimekin
Name pronunciation:
Age: 22
Occupation: Fugitive Recovery Agent
Rank: Agent
Ashrinn Chimekin is the newest member of the Shrike's crew. She's good friends with its pilot, Jiyandi Littlereed. At the beginning of 'Path of the Warrior', she's 22 years old. She's a Fugitive Recovery Agent. She specializes in biology, a field she doesn't get to utilize at all on Keverynn.

She has a soft spot for people who are being or have been picked on by others. Her heart and her emotions are her biggest vulnerability. She’s an optimist but is somewhat introverted. She believes in people but doesn't want to get hurt. She tends to have fairly low self esteem and doesn't consider herself to be attractive at all. By Atharian standards, she's roughly average in appearance and height.

She enjoys Lirriro stew with thick gravy and biscuits. She dislikes rainbow fish as she finds the taste to be far too bland.

Ashrinn is very sensitive to magic, something that never came up on Atharia.

Asharos Sigilkeeper
Name pronunciation: ah-shaa-ross
Age: 23
Occupation: Cultist
Rank: High Priest
He's the High Priest of the cult of Atraxia, a religious practice that is outlawed on his home world of Atharia. He's a powerful sorcerer and his power has only increased since his arrival on Keverynn.

Not a great deal is known about Asharos or his life before founding the cult of Atraxia. His family were ranchers, raising Ade'darans, which are small, long haired sheep-like animals with cloven hooves and white or brown coats. He was born during Eshkator, Atharia's hot, dry season. In the tradition of his family, he was born on the ranch (called Thren'aril) rather than in the nearby city of Sinti’arebed. It's not known if he has any siblings and he doesn't speak about his old home.

He formed the cult in his teenage years, though it didn't gain any sort of following until his mid twenties. At that point, it caught the attention of the authorities and the Agency was contracted to take them out.


Ophalia Truesonne
Name pronunciation: oh-fa-lee-ah
Age: 23
Occupation: Cultist
Rank: priestess

She's 22 years old. Before arriving on Keverynn she had a bit of a chubbier physique. The change to her physical activity level and diet played a huge role in her gaining some muscle tone. She's trimmed down a bit.

She enjoys classical literature and modern music. She's a pessimist and an extrovert. Her eyes were brown before coming to Keverynn. She now considers her purple eyes to be her best feature.
