Likes: stormy nights, large fires, spending time alone
Hobbies: Dragonfly racing; watching the night sky; teasing Mika about the size of her bottom.
In contrast to her twin Lylita's cheerful demeanour, Lilith is a sullen little thing. A fairy born from shadow itself and joint heir to the fairy throne. However, Lilith is reluctant to become queen, shying away from the limelight. She dislikes the feeling that her destiny was mapped out from her birth and wants to choose her own place in the world, feeling there's more to her life than being queen. As a shadow fairy, Lilith is naturally drawn to bright lights and fire, as well as magic and the mysterious.
Likes: sun bathing, boogying, summer
Deep dark secret: Likes to run round naked in the snow.
Lylita is a little ray of sunshine, although that doesn't mean everything she does is right. She's perky and bright, and eager to inherit the throne and the glory that comes with it. Friend to many fairies, this sunlight fey is loyal with a strong sense of duty. At times she gets a little exasperated with her twin and cannot understand the reasons for her behaviour, but still loves her very much.
Likes: cherries, romantic stories, men
Favourite word: Nipples
Mika is a cherry loving little fey. She's good friends with the twins in spite of regular fights with Lilith. She's cute but rather mischievous at times, and has a knack for getting into trouble. Mika was born from a cherry blossom and around her cherries ripen and taste extra sweet. For as long as she can remember, she has longed for a kind of love she cannot have in the fairy realm.
Name: Aerlene Swift (Lene)
Likes: sword fighting, autumn, challenges
First Kiss: Lysander, age 9
Lene is top of her class and has a strong desire to prove herself. She has startling green eyes and a natural talent with the bow. Her mother, Lydia, was disowned before Lene was born and she never knew her father, but blames him for the sadness she sees in her mother. Like Delaphina she is quite naive, and may come to realise soon that the world isn't as black and white as she thought.
Name: Delaphina Weir (Dee)
Likes: mermaids, helping people, dashing seafaring gentlemen
Random Fact: One of the few people who manages to fall up stairs
Dee is Lene's closest friend. She is training to become a healer and her natural talent with herbs earned her a scholarship to Nonsuch Knight Academy. She comes from a poor and large, yet loving, family and would like to help support them any way she can. Since she was a child, she has been fascinated with the mermaids and worships the god of the water realm. She is occasionally clumsy and usually ditzy but she has a kind heart and is very passionate about what she believes in. Her dream is to become a Lead Healer.
Name: Cyan Fenton
Likes: winning, redheads, cats
Random Fact: Also studies healing
Cyan is one of the final year students at Nonsuch Knight Academy.
Cyan is also one of the top in the school in sword fighting, though as they've been in different classes has never faced Aerlene in a fight before. As he's been very lucky in life he's a cheerful confident person. Almost always with a smile on his lips, Cyan is warm and can be quite cheeky.

Likes: Women, Oceans, Bronze
Though engaged to Sylph, the goddess of air, Neifion is known for his love of beautiful women, and often changes his form to seduce them. When Sylph learnt of his betrayals of her she went to Neifion's sister Serefina for help in preparing a spell to put a stop to his philandering. Serefina, ever the enemy of her brother, deliberately altered the spell so that when Sylph cast it on her fiancé it blinded him. Forced to develop his sight in other ways, Neifion is now said to have the gift of clairvoyance and fortune tellers commonly pray to him, reading the future in pools of water.
Likes: Trees, Songs, Silver
