Class: Grand Templar
Personality: Trace is usually friendly, shy, and a little naive. However, his personality changes drastically whenever he recalls past memories.
Trace was born into a poor family of farmers, but his talents in magic were quickly recognized and at a young age he was recruited into the Templar. He rose through the ranks and eventually took over the organization as Grand Templar following the death of his first wife. He quickly became known as a tyrant, feared by Humans and Keidran alike. His incredible power allowed him to dominate all those who opposed him.
However, his memories were stolen from him, along with his deep-seeded hatred for Keidran. He now travels alongside Flora, a Keidran he befriended in ignorance to the ways he once thought of them. However, his memories are slowly returning, and with them a knowledge of a past he'd rather have remain forgotten.
Flora of the Rainforest Tiger Tribe
Species: Tiger Keidran
Languages: Keidran, Human
Personality: Flora is outgoing and strong-willed, but also a romantic. Since childhood her dreams have been of finding a "true love."
Flora was born in the southern rainforests of her tribe. However, at the age of three her home was attacked by slave traders. Her parents were killed and she was sold into slavery. Flora was lucky enough to be purchased by a friendly human family, who treated her more like a daughter then a slave. Thus, Flora recalls her days of slavery with an unusual fondness. She has no memory of the day her tribe was attacked.
Flora eventually was allowed by her human family to return to her people. Due of her knowledge of human nature and language, she was chosen to be a representative of the Tiger Clan and a marriage was arranged between her and a prince of the Wolf Clan. The arrangement fell through, though, when her caravan was attacked. She was saved from the human attackers by Trace, who had just recently lost his memories.
Class: Banished Warrior
Species: Eastern Basitin
Personality: Keith acts serious or indifferent most of the time. However, deep down he's really caring and protective.
Keith was born on the Basidian Islands, a large landmass located near the mainland. His father was a General of the military. His mother was a soldier, just like all Basitins, but she sheltered him from military life for much of his childhood. Like all Basitins, he did eventually join the military at 8 years of age, late for most Basitins. Keith was blamed for his parents death at the age of 13 and banished from the islands. He was ordered not to return until he brought back the Grand Templar.

Natani of the Border Forest Tribe
Class: Magi Brother Assassin
Species: Wolf Keidran

Natani was forced to live homeless with her brother after her parents and tribe were destroyed by human Templars. She eventually disguised herself as a male and, along with her brother, joined an assassins guild to make ends meet. Due to an accident during an assassination mission, Natani became magically and permanently linked to her brother, and much of her brother's male personality overpowered her own. Though she realizes her body is female, she has convinced herself she is really male.
Natani has never had a formal education and is thus illiterate. She cannot write in any language, and can only speak Keidran. She can only understand a few human words. Thus, Natani will often find herself left in the dark during conversations between species.
Species: Human / Keidran
Personality: In Human form, Raine is a shy and slightly naive young girl. However, due to lack of experience as a Keidran, Raine can sometimes lose herself to the wild nature of her other form.
Raine is the daughter of the former Grand Templar. She was born under unusual and unnatural circumstances, and as a result possesses unpredictable magical power. The wild nature of her magic causes her to experience physical transformations between Keidran and Human forms. These transformations are usually kept in check by artifacts enchanted to suppress her magic.

But as Raine matures, her bestial side becomes increasingly restless from years of suppression.

Kathrin "Spots" Vaughan
Species: Mixed Breed Keidran
Personality: Kathrin has a happy-go-lucky personality. She is a bit naive about most things, having been sheltered as a slave all her life.
Kathrin was selectively bred from several generations of Keidran slaves in order to be more physically appealing to humans.

Class: Tavern Maid
Personality: Karen is outgoing and excited; she hates being bored and will go out of her way to make things interesting.

The curse backfired, however, when Karen decided she loved the ears and wanted to keep them.
