The diplomats and staff at the Sønheim Embassy in Ceannis.


A group that includes Leif. All working off debts which are currently owned by the Embassy, as signaled by the fact that their last names are replaced with “of Sønheim.”

Fitted with compulsion microchips embedded in the backs of their necks, with the position marked by an Embassy fleurcode. They use Sønheim Sign to communicate unobtrusively.


Katya Appearances: Katya

Housekeeper and general-purpose servant. Stoic, cautious and quiet, she knows a lot more than she lets on. Covers for her fellow servants in rule-bending situations. Would be totally capable of poisoning someone in their sleep.

Katya was raised by adoptive parents. She's a different ethnicity than Leif, and most of the rest of the staff, though it’s hard for southerners to tell. She is also asexual.

  • Age (first appearance): 30
  • Likes: Lizards, peacetime, secrets
  • Dislikes: Overt conflict, allergy-inducing flowers, certain politicians


Elisa Appearances: Elisa

Kitchen attendant and general-purpose servant. Likes romance novels, making photosets with fashion and cute aesthetics, baked goods, and fun memes. She's bi/pan, though she spends more time getting emotionally invested in fictional characters than real-life crushes.

Elisa has two dads. She's a native speaker of Sønheim Sign, as one of her dads is deaf. The other was one of the trapped miners in Landslide Bring Me Down.

  • Age (first appearance): 21


Torsten Appearances: Torsten
