Main Characters


Growing up without a father because of the Witch Burners, Nyneve’s distrust in the Witch Guard alienated her from her classmates. Naturally inquisitive and good at magical theory, Nyneve would be a perfect student if it weren’t for her lackluster magic skills. She just wants to live the life of a quiet academic.


Raised in a loving family with a lot of dogs. He and his family live on the same island as Nyneve, but they work on a farm on the nearby mainland. Batu is naturally empathetic, and, being around when her father died, has always been very kind to Nyneve. It’s a bit of a mystery how he came to be friends with Prill.


Comes from a wealthy clan with anachronistic gender attitudes. Prill has a harsh mother and an ineffectual father who are well-intentioned but ultimately place too much pressure on her. Fiercely loyal to the kingdom, Prill and Nyneve’s wildly opposing views had them butting heads since their first day of school. The star of the class.
