History: From a young age, Rautu preferred being alone. He enjoyed skulking about the temple and the surrounding gardens so much that at a young age he was named Den Asaan, chief infiltrator, and was taken to be trained by Danuvhu. He was given the name Rautu, He Who is without Fear, when during a Mhalaankha match between him and Otenothi a hangaara attacked. He killed it with his bare hands, earning him the title of Den Endari. Though Rautu had great fame and esteem on Sanhedhran due to his many achievements and his rivalry with Otenohi, he could not secure a woman for Khopra. Though all Amghari with the title of Den are exempt from the ritual, he would perform it at least once in order to gain on Otenohi's hundreds. Otenohi found him a partner, but his ethnaa accidentally surfaced during the ritual after the woman's ceaseless provocation. The woman confessed to her having provoked his rage, and though Rautu was acquitted his crime, the damage was already done. He was given the name Ethnaahi, He Who is Wrathful, by the women of the settlements and was no longer approached for Khopra or any other ritual. Rautu resigned himself to the comfort of his brothers and vowed never to be with another Haanta woman again. He remained alone with them until war took him to Thellis, and when he returned home to find Leraa missing, he returned to the south. He had convinced his leader Tsinonaahi to send him to the Northern Continent under the guise of searching for a new route into Thellis capital, but during his hunt to uncover Leraa's whereabouts, he was captured. He was to be taken to Thellis capital as a prisoner of war when he escaped and ventured southward in search of his stolen items and reports. He found them in the Amene barracks where he met Boudicca and vowed to help her end the Galleisian War if she kept him in good food and good company. Their efforts to save her nation were successful, and after some trials on both sides, Rautu secured Frewyn as an ally and Boudicca as a mate.

History: Alasdair grew up in the Diras Castle keep with his brother Allande, his grandfather Dorrin, and his mentor Bryeison. His parents, Draeden and Brighel, died just after he was born, leaving him in his grandfather's care. He was first educated in the keep by Dorrin and Bryeison, and when he was old enough, Dorrin sent him to Tyfferim to attend school, to learn humility from the yeomanry and labourers of the kingdom. He learned music and is a proficient fiddler and composer. He played music with his grandfather every evening until King Dorrin grew ill and begged Alasdair to take his place on the throne. He said that he would, but his brother Allande used the advantages of age and education to take the kingship from him. Angry and distraught at his brother's tyranny against their people, Alasdair joined the armed forces, left his music and his mare Maeve, a gift from his grandfather, in hopes of finding a way to help his people without openly defying Allande. He spent a month at Karnwyl Prison as a guard, and was moved to the Tyfferim regiment where he was reunited with Boudicca. They trained together under Commanders Dobhin and Vyrdin  and were given their own regiments to command when they were made captains. After their victory over their adversaries and the death of Alasdair's brother, Alasdair took his rightful place as king and has ruled Frewyn ever since.

Parents: Tarhontaa and his first mate 
Likes: Animals, spending time with his brothers, beating Rautu at Mhanghaanas
Dislikes: Being parted from his Anonnaa, his Odaibha
Fears: Never being allowed to return home again
History: Obhantaa was born a little different from most in the Haanta settlements. The Themari who cared for him quickly saw that he was unable to learn with the rest of the Mivaari and tried having various teachers attempt to assist with his basic instruction. After many years of trying to discover his Mivaala, he was given the name Obhaanta, He Who is without a Mind, left to live in the temple and scramble into any education he could get. He earned the name Leraa, He Who is Gentle, by befriending the temple garden keeper Anjhali and caring for all the small creatures that lived in and around the temple grounds. After war broke out between the Haanta and Thellis, Leraa happened to meet Otenohi, who was unwell at the time and being made to live in the temple. Leraa and Otenohi quickly became friends, and through Otenohi's guidance and attention, Leraa finally began to develop his abilities. He soon discovered that he had the Endaari Sotaa, the Hunter's Gift, and learned how to speak to and understand animals. Through Otenohi, Leraa met Rautu and Unghaahi, and through Rautu, he met Khaasta, his pet hangaara. Rautu, Otenohi, and Unghaahi took care of Leraa, taught him the way of the Amghari, and were petitioning for his installation in Otenohi's regiment when a misfortune occurred and Leraa was exiled.His disappearance prompted Rautu to travel southward in quest of him.   

Name: Otenohi (He who is weak)

Fears: Never finding Leraa or his Traala
History: Dhenidha was the first of the four brothers to be born just after the new Hakriyaa took command of the forces on Mhavaledhran, Ghaasta, and Sanhedhran. He was called the Tempest  due to his constant fussing and screaming while being nursed in the Ankhimarron. When his brother Dhenidha was born, however, he became quiet when holding him and marched about with his brother in his arms as often as the Ankhimari would allow. Dhirghena and Dhenidha did everything together: they went to the temple at the same time, shared the same room, learned the same subjects, and were nigh inseparable until the day that Dhenidha was named Den Amhadhri and was removed from the temple to learn his art in isolation. Inconsolable, Dhirghena turned to Rautu for comfort until they were both named as Amghari and granted their own Odaibha. He would escape from his lessons to search for his brother, and years later found him to be the supreme commander Unghaahi. They were reunited and placed in the same regiment where Dhirghena earned the name Otenohi, He Who is Weak, by challenging Unghaahi to Hophsaas and losing every time. He began his healthy rivalry with Rautu and earned himself the title of Khopra master due to his extreme luck in procuring women for the sacred Haanta ritual. After seeing Otenohi's brilliance with tactical machinations, Unghaahi petitioned for his Mivaala to be changed. He was given a second Mivaala of Herhukhsenri, the interrogator for the Haanta armed forces, and though the vicious side of his character did well for the position, Unghaahi felt that the title was still not right. When war again came to their settlements, Otenohi was placed in the temple where he met Leraa. After Leraa's disappearance, Otenohi was forbidden from searching for him and was forced to stay on Sanhedhran while Unghaahi and Rautu went searching for their brother. It was then that he met Ashta Hira, the woman whom he wanted to ask to be his Ataas Traala. They were discovered, Ashta Hira was exiled, and Otenohi was imprisoned on Mhavhaledhran where he waits for his brothers to return and appeal for his release.  

Name: Unghaahi (He who is feared)
Birth name: Dhenidha (the mountain) 
Age (book 1): 50
Occupation: Den Amhadhri (Supereme commander)
Race: giant
Nationality: Sanhedhran
Parents: Tesekha and his Traala
Likes: Teaching Hophsaas, Phoraas, being with his brothers, being alone with Kai Linaa
Dislikes: Seeing others being harmed or treated with unkindness
Fears: Being inadequate in the eyes of his superiors
History: Dhenidha was named for his immense size and strength. After having grown up in the temple beside Rautu and Otenohi, he was granted the Mivaala of Den Amhadhri and taken to be trained in isolation by an Odaibha. He learned Hophsaas through matches with Bhaaldhena, learned kaatas, was given his Hophsaastas to fight with, and was eventually made a Hophsaas teacher and master. When he was reunited with his brother, he saw how poorly Otenohi had been treated during their separation. Though Otenohi was mischievous, Unghaahi felt that he did not warrant half the punishments he had received. He felt that a more attentive approach would have helped Otenohi correct his conduct instead of excluding him and promoting others who were less gifted. After Otenohi was disallowed from attending his own Amghari ceremony, Unghaahi vowed to be his teacher in private and made a weapon for him from a khapaalibhaati reed. Together they trained, Otenohi constantly larking his brother, and Unghaahi constantly thwarting his attempts. After seeing his brother's incomparable genius on the field, Unghaahi felt that Otenohi was named incorrectly. He then petitioned the Den Themari for a second assessment. Otenohi was granted another Mivaala, but Unghaahi felt that it was chosen in haste. When he suggested that the position was wrong, he was forbidden from petitioning again by the Hakiryaa Tsinonaahi, Unghaahi's immediate superior. The more Unghaahi did to further the interests and talents of his brothers, the more Tsinohaahi disliked and distrusted him, and when the appeal to have Leraa made Amghari came, Tsinonaahi dismissed it and called for Leraa's exile. His distress at losing his brother, of keeping them all together, and of being made to command his army away from the settlements only added to Unghaahi's true fear: never finding a Traala. Both Tsinonaahi and Unghaahi's Odaibha had connived to make Unghaahi the most feared creature of the settlements. He was bred for war, and though they could not break his gentle and benevolent spirit, they could ruin his reputation. After his ethnaa had surfaced and he succeeded in accidentally destroying the entire southern shore, Tsinohaahi named him He Who is Feared and planted the idea of Unghaahi being a monstrous and uncontrollable beast in everyone's mind. His men respected him, but the women of the settlements would no longer near him. He was often left with Rautu for company when Otenohi would go to the temple in the evenings, and though happy to be with his brother, Unghaahi suffered from a heavy heart and unfulfilled desire until he returned to Sanhedhran after his battle at Thellis and found Kai Linaa.

In search of a new life, she petitions the Den Asaan for passage to the Haanta lands, as no one without permission from a high-ranking Haanta is allowed entrance. She arrives safely on Sanhedhran and is welcomed by their collective with open arms. She is granted the title of Kai Linaa, the Life Giver, and is asked to go around the Amghari giving water and food to anyone who asks. There on the southern shores, she meets Unghaahi, and is quickly impressed by his manner, his appearance, and his numerous achievements. The fall in love and Unghaahi claims Kai Linaa as his traala only to have their attachment threatened by the revelation of her past. Though the accusations of her being a dark mage cannot be proven, she is removed from the Haanta lands and sent to live in Frewyn, where she is welcomed as Unghaahi's mate with highest commendation. She is given a place in the castle keep and discovers her abilities at illustration, while she continues to learn the secrets of her tumultuous past.

They became friends, and after Leraa was entreated to return the cat to her natural habitat, he stumbled upon her again while walking with Rautu near the northern jungles.

As the only Lucentian family in Amene, however, Teague grew up with few playmates and clung to his parents, who educated him and taught him everything he needed to know about his Lucentian heritage. When trade routes with Gallei opened and fortune came, Teague's parents bought their home and had Teague's two siblings, Fionnora and Ennan. Teague, then much older, gave up his position at his father's side to care for his brother and sister, and he enjoyed his new position until war came to Frewyn. Their parents were amongst the first casualties of the initial invasions, and the closure of trade in the west destroyed the family business. Teague was forced to sell their home and steal food in order to survive, and he was able to shelter and protect the wellbeing of his young siblings until the Royal Guard caught him stealing, landing him a cell in Karnwyl Prison and placing his brother and sister at the mercy of a Church in Amene. Once the king discovers why Teague was placed in prison, he is immediately exonerated and given a position in the king's service to help him rebuild everything he has lost. Teague quickly proves himself, and after he is reunited with his siblings, he petitions to create a spy network in Frewyn.
