Main Characters


Rose Quartz
Age: 18
Race: Mixed human/elven
Kingdom: Anscomb: Hallvardur
She is the oldest of all her siblings and cousins. Thus, Rose Quartz takes her role as a leader for her family and her kingdom very seriously. She thrives being in social situations often as the center of attention, but will share the spotlight in an instant. She likes to organize, almost too much, and uncannily remembers the smaller details about the people around her. When she’s not running around the castle, she’s digging in her garden.
Sindri
Age: 20
Race: Mixed human/Dvergar
Kingdom: Below the Mountains: Dvergar Caverns
A knight lost in the caverns with no memory of his past. His actions show him to be a brave man, yet, Rose Quartz’s appearance stirs memories awake.

Rose Quartz’s Sisters


Amethyst
Age: 16
Race: Mixed human/elven
Kingdom: Anscomb: Hallvardur
Amethyst is the second oldest and was considered the “spare” until their brother, Jasper, came along. She’s perfectly fine with that as she would rather die than be the center of attention. Prefers books, particularly on magic and the Ancients, but really will read anything. Can seem standoffish, but will open up to share her knowledge when asked.
cast-pearl Pearl
Age: 8
Race: Mixed human/elven
Kingdom: Anscomb: Hallvardur
The youngest girl of their generation, Pearl, with her twin Dar, were an unexpected joy and thus a bit spoiled. Quiet and a creative thinker, she’s constantly sketching out another idea or three. The twins are rarely parted from each other. Since they are a little younger than the others they keep to their own company.

Their Cousins: Lake District


Abalone
Age: 15 (almost 16!)
Race: Mixed human
Kingdom: Anscomb: Lake District
The third oldest girl, Abalone is romantic and dramatic. Convinced her way is right, usually she has to try and fail before admitting defeat. She used to romp around with her older brother, but recently has begun to dress like a lady. Even if she doesn’t always act like one yet.
Ruby
Age: 13
Race: Mixed human
Kingdom: Anscomb: Lake District
Twin to Jade, Ruby is more outgoing and athletic. Horses are her passion in life leaving little thought to anyone or anything else. She’d be off in her own little world if it wasn’t for Jade. Despite their opposing natures, their patience and love of animals ties these two strongly together.
Jade
Age: 13
Race: Mixed human
Kingdom: Anscomb: Lake District
Twin to Ruby, she was sickly early in life resulting in more indoor pursuits. She enjoys learning about the healing arts after being miraculously healed herself.

Peridot
Age: 12
Race: Mixed human
Kingdom: Anscomb: Lake District
Abalone’s youngest sibling, Peridot is in constant competition with her twin Garnett and cousin Jasper. The three of them get into considerable trouble daring each other to go farther and do more. Yet, their last adventure left her pretty shaken. She’s tired of being the “baby” of her family.

Carnelian

Creatures

Night Gryphon

Dawn Gryphon

Similar to their counterparts, the night gryphons, the dawn gryphons are a dual-natured creature as well. However, they are happiest in their spectral forms and very rarely shift to a physical form. They are friendly and extroverted and like to become companions to some of the larger creatures in the Dvergar Caverns.

Rock Troll

Kingdom: Below the Mountains: Dvergar Caverns 
Somewhere between a troll and a giant, the rock troll is naturally aligned with the Earth magics. They fled Below to the Dvergar Kingdom during the Mage Wars and do not go Above often. While they are outwardly stoic, they do have a friendly disposition. This rock troll guards the gate from the Copper Hall to the Silver Hall.
