Everyone from Ceannis who isn't covered under Thorn, Knights, Thorn's family, Mages, or Historical.

Ceannic Government

The civilians who administer the knights. See also government mages.

Olive Romarin

Appearances: Olive Romarin

President of Ceannis. Everybody’s boss. Has led the country through dealing with multiple nationwide crises, and also two Kolpovision wins.

Might seem overly chirpy and easily distracted, but has well honed instincts and a wealth of experience from being a long-runner.

  • Ethnicity: Getsunese
  • Age (first appearance, this incarnation): 25
  • Age at election (this incarnation): 20
  • Likes: Pie, dismantling the legacies of her political rivals, being underestimated
  • Dislikes: Kudzu, not getting to finish her pie

Woman in Black

Appearances: Woman in Black

Who? I don’t remember anyone like that in this comic.

Although someone who's impossible to remember could be a particularly effective agent in the Secret Order of Monster Hunters.

And isn't it odd that Delphinum so rarely has a partner?

The WiB's unmemorability covers all her personal information, and all the details of any encounter with her, in-person as well as over calls or video chats. People will simply remember a version of the scene that didn't include her. Details that would reveal a continuity error are vague and confused; actual photos or videos will come out blurry and scrambled.

If she needs to convey some information long-term, it's easier to remember when it's written or text-based. Except for, again, personal information, which people won't be able to grasp even when they're staring at the words.

Kale Romarin

Appearances: Kale Romarin

Translator. Cranky and sarcastic. Prefers to be left alone. Killed some people, under circumstances he doesn't like to talk about.

He has a soulbond with his dog, Niamh, to help with hallucinations; and government-mandated therapy to help with everything else. Not really optimistic that he deserves a redemption arc, but he's at least doing the work.

Kale's apartment is on the first floor of Thorn's building, and as circumstances keep throwing them together, he's been making friends with Thorn in spite of himself.

  • Ethnicity: Aibreán
  • Age (first appearance): 32
  • Likes: Sunglasses, long sleeves, his dog, Thorn
  • Dislikes: Crushing on people who are taken, feeling helpless, general human interaction

  • Ethnicity: Feabhric
  • Age (first appearance): 24

Agent D10

Appearances: Agent D10

Talented secret agent, who has a frenemy-type rivalry with Agent Delphinium. Genderqueer (they), married, prone to boasting about their husband Hermosa as much as their own skills – which include acting, knife-wielding, and contact juggling. Their sister is Sir Pascentia, and their wallet name is Dexippus “Dexie” Zikos.

Has a specialty for cases that involve dark mages. Wears half-moon glasses, dapper vests, and makeup/jewelry/fancier clothes when off-duty (or undercover).

Annie Persil

Appearances: Annie Persil

Gem miner, don’cha know. “Annie” is short for Anise. Engaged to, and then married to, Birch Persil.

Friendly, polite, enjoys long winters and deep-fried foods, talks in a fantasy-Midwestern accent. She’s one of the calmest and most-stable people on her team…although it might not be a good thing that she doesn’t get angry, even when she probably should.

There’s no single consistent design for her tattoos (upper left arm + left hip), because they shift and bloom throughout the day.

Hedge & Grassie

Appearances: Hedge Dubois and Grassie Amande

Legendary comediennes. Happily married, eventually with two adopted children. They're both still alive (though very old) when Thorn kills the dragon – they send him flowers in the hospital.

Got their start as the stars of an early crystal-broadcast sitcom, where they play fictionalized versions of themselves. (See Hedge and Grassie for their co-stars, and other characters on the show.) Later, did a “Grassie for President” special.

Hedge is Iuilic. She goes by a stage name; her obviously-Iuilic birth name, which Grassie uses, is Nance Grusadrevo. Plays the straight-woman to Grassie's comedy. Usually wears dapper suits, and is frequently seen carrying a joint.

Grassie is Aibreán. Spends most of her free time studying scripts, because her lines are dense and complicated and always have to be exactly right. Not as dotty in real life as on-screen, though she certainly has her moments. Surprisingly matter-of-fact about meeting a time traveler.

Grassie's right arm and shoulder have burn scarring from a childhood potions accident. She's sensitive about the scars; she never wears backless or sleeveless clothing, and they don't become public knowledge for most of her life. Hedge/Nance knows, and is totally unbothered.
