A washed up but skilled mercenary. In the past he was a lowly foot soldier, but was singled out by the young daughter of a lord who favoured him. Seeing his superior natural skill they decided to let her keep him as her personal guard until she was in her late teens. She gave him the necklace he still wears to this day, a stone ring. Knights from this town were given a silver signet ring when knighted, a title that the lord never allowed Roman to have, so the lord’s daughter fashioned one herself. When the lord’s daughter is killed tragically in an attack, the lord blames Roman and casts him out of the city. With only his reputation as a skilled swordsman and no title he wandered for years, eventually finding his old friend Glasha again and gaining reputation as a mercenary. He is hired to capture General Carmen.
|Role||, Commander, Prisoner|
Carmen, from house Valentine, grew up and trained in Amarinth with Anastasia. Close childhood friends, Carmen was always protective of Anastasia.

An intelligent orcish translator and guide for travelling through Skagen. Crow is very meak, a common trait in 'half-blood' orcs. She's a lot more sociable than Glasha, and her linguistic talents raise a lot of questions. Where did she learn not one, but multiple languages? Crow could doubtlessly work for a legitimate institute or a noble house, but instead prefers to work with mercenaries. Her skills were vital in procuring the means to transport Carmen from Anghor Bay to Whitewood without raising suspicion.

|Role||, Mercenary, Orc|
An orc, and a very old friend of Roman's. Glasha is about as 'full-blooded' as orcs come north side of the sea. Her social skills are lacking at the best of times, but there's few problems which she can't fight, drink, or fuck her way out of, preferably in that order. Glasha and Roman share a mutual respect: Roman respects that Glasha could probably beat a bear in a fair fight, and Glasha respects Roman when he says it's a bad idea.
An informant and a go-between. Trades in knowledge, and is a notorious fence in the shadier markets of Hythe. Due to his lack of allegiances he frequently works alongside sellswords like Roman. Markus is the key organiser of the abduction of Carmen Valentine, after he was contacted by the group's employer.
|Role||, Queen Regnant|
Trained from a young age and showed prodigal skill as one of the most skilled in combat of her family, House of the Sanguine Rose. After the king dies with no heir, and seeing her house and her family's namesake skilled fighters begin to stagnate she decides to take the empty throne for herself.
