Character List & Glossary

With a host of characters in this epic adventure series (more than a hundred), it can be difficult to keep track of who is who and what their role is in the story. To helpREVISED - final Dragon-Called Legend logoF keep everything straight, it was necessary to create a list of the characters, pronunciations where necessary, who they are and their relationships. There’s even a downloadable PDF file with this information. You can click to bring up a PDF file of the list that you can download and print out if you want to keep it nearby. The list can also be found in the back of each of the books in the series. At the end of the list will be a few additional bits of information such as the Heraldry of the main kingdoms and the significance of the Priests’ and Clerics’ different colored robes.

As a little bonus, you can find greater detail (physical and personality characteristics and other information) on a few of the more important characters by clicking on this link. Details on more characters will be added as time allows.

Glossary

Ainglean: The Burning Lady’s Wardens in the physical world. Oversees/assists those agents, sent by the Burning Lady, to carry out her mission (e.g. Haldis, Clerics, others).

Daevian: A vilest of creatures from the Shadows. They can exist in the physical world of Athule and summon other demons from the Shadows. A primary agent of the Dark Lord, the Olcas Mogwai.

Haldis:  Shield (a Knight) of the Goddess. The Goddess’ Weapons.

il-fennore: The Spirit realm of the Burning Lady where Spirits go when the Goddess’ essence leaves a body (human, Elf, other). It is also the name of the magic that is created by reaching into the Goddess’ world and utilizing the Spirit creatures to manipulate objects in the physical world.

Mind-Bridge: A Mind-bridge conveys actual words, but even more than that. Along with the words are images and emotions, far clearer than a Spirit-link, that add meaning. At the extreme, a few beings can use the Mind-bridge to actually influence the thoughts of another being, though it requires a lot of energy and can only be done with certain people—generally ones who are already inclined to be swayed.

Protector: Warrior that is sworn, to the Burning Lady, to protect a specific Being.

Sending: This is what it is called when someone sends images, words, etc. across a Mind-bridge or impressions across a Spirit-link.

Sensitives: A Sensitive is sensitive when connections are made to the il fennore, and also when a Sending is made.  The Sensitive can feel the connections and in the case of a Spirit-link or Mind-bridge, those involved in the connection. So a Sensitive could tell when a particular Elf was in a Spirit-link with a specific Hukka. The Sensitive can feel the emotions and to a certain degree what someone is thinking, by inference, but can’t read someone’s mind.  Sensitives can Spirit-link their thoughts with another Sensitive, but not share thoughts—sometimes images, but mostly emotions.

Sensing: The ability to feel something about someone—similar to Spirit-link, but more of a passive process. This is what a Sensitive can do, but also a Haldis, Skinshifter, Lor, and a few others.

Shadows: Domain of the Dark Lord, the Great Evil called the Olcas Mogwai. It is where evil Spirits dwell. A viler a Spirit, the deeper it sinks into the Shadows—the most depraved and heinous of these demons exist at the lowest, seventh level, of the Shadows.

Skin-Shifter: Small human form that can change into a Hukka (extremely large wolf-like creature).

Spirit-link: The Spirit-link provides a means for occasionally transmitting images and some feelings to a degree, which our Spirit tries to interpret. With beings like Kata-henis or Borlenders, we fill in much of what is communicated to create words that make sense to us. Think of it as riding along the edge of the il fennore and then talking Spirit-to-Spirit with another intelligent creature that has the native ability to make the connection. Elfs, Hukkas, Kata-henis, and a few other creatures can do this. Only a few humans can and most animals cannot.

VESTMENTS

  • Uul Priest:     (Red robes) Highest ranking of the Shin-il Priesthood. Within the Uuls, ten are named the Gai-Ten, the inner circle of the Master, leader of the Shin-il Way.
  • Jin Priest:     (Black robes) Shin-il Priests one rank below the Uuls.
  • Obeah Priest:     (Yellow robes) Priests from a remote eastern island. Obeah Priests are disdained by other Shin-il Priests because of their use of herbs and other magical forms not of the Spirit World.
  • Acolytes:     (Brown robes) Individuals who serve the Shin-il Priests with hopes of become one someday themselves.
  • Clerics:     (Gray robes) Disciples called by the Goddess / the Burning Lady. Healers and foes of the Shin-il Priests.
