Terris is a fledgling mage who, owing to her hometown prejudices, hasn't developed her skills very far. She has self-confidence issues and is a bit of a crank, but she has a soft, squishy heart and is very dependable.

Sai is a member of the world-renowned Travelers' Guild. He fills many roles in the group, including tour guide, body guard, and translator. He's a smart guy, but since he's also kind of an oblivious stooge, nobody takes him very seriously.

Ness is the leader of the Guardians. She's easygoing and laid-back, but this is belied and pretty much negated by her loudness, potty mouth, and liberal use of violence. She's a capable leader, though, and no one can say she doesn't get things done somehow.

Nennutha is Ness's younger sister. She's a firecaster who once worked in a circus troupe. She's very proud of her skills. She can be abrasive and tends to come off as a bit of a know-it-all, but she means well.

Dil grew up with Terris and is sort of an older brother-figure to her. He's extremely taciturn and blunt, and he's not very bright. But he makes up for that by having more common sense than all the rest of the group combined.

Terris' capable little sister, who runs the shop that keeps them fed. Pretty, quick, confident, and has a sunny demeanor that's won over even the hearts of the sisters' prejudiced fellow townspeople. May have just the slightest hint of a mean streak.

Age: 25
Eye Color: Light Brown
Hair Color: Teal
Dil's older sister. Raised Dil mostly on her own after their parents' deaths, and later helped Terris raise Taren after the girls were abandoned by their mother. She's kind, well-meaning, and completely out of her goddamn mind.
