The big day is here.

Character Files: LEO THE SENTRY

NAME: Leo The Sentry

HOME: Mont Petit Pierre (Unfortunately for him)Leo

BACKGROUND: Leo the Sentry has a problem. He can’t stand his job. His dream is to travel and see the world — not stand outside the town’s fortress wall for 12 hours a day keeping watch. Can you imagine a more boring job? But Leo is about to learn to be careful what you wish for because sometimes dreams come true. Frighteningly true!

SPECIAL POWERS: Leo has the power to stand still for 12 hours keeping watch without ever going to the bathroom, eating, or napping. While he doesn’t like to do this, he is quite good at it.




NAME: The River King and Prince Fishface

HOME: Mad River

BACKGROUND: Deep in the wilderness, past the Forest of Death, but before you reach Giant’s Peak is the Mad River. Many a man and woman have tried to cross the Mad River, only to be swept away in its brutal currents. Mad River is the home to the River King, his son Prince Fishface, the fearsome Barry the Barracuda, and other creatures. Claudette and her friends fought the River King the first time they met, but that conflict is just water under the bridge, and they’re all pals now. But if you ever meet him, remember the River King’s favorite food is pickled herring. You better bring him some.

SPECIAL POWERS: The River King has dominion over all the rivers. (Not the sea – the seas are controlled by his first ex-wife the Sea Hag, but that’s another story for another time). The King can change his shape using water from his river. Prince Fishface has the power to make his fish scales incredibly shiny. In the right light, he can glimmer.

Character Files: ZUBAIR

NAME: Zubair

HOME: Mont Petit Pierrezubair leap

BACKGROUND: Zubair is a great warrior and a skilled blacksmith-in-training. There’s a long story about how he first met Augustine the Blacksmith. Zubair was fleeing his home kingdom (that’s another long story) when he came upon Augustine’s battered body just after he had lost a great battle against Azra the Dragon. Zubair carried Augustine for two days all the way back to Mont Petit Pierre, thus saving Augustine’s life. Zubair thinks of Augustine, Claudette, and Gaston as family. The feeling is mutual.

SPECIAL POWERS: Zubair is the greatest warrior in the Seven Kingdoms. But he doesn’t go around bragging about it. Zubair knows it and his mentor, Augustine, knows it, and that’s good enough for him.
