The Innocent Mage and Awakened Mage
Asher of RestharvenA young Olken fisherman from the village of Restharven and the focus of the first book. Tired of getting pushed around by his six older brothers, Asher vows that he will get rich, buy a larger boat and live a peaceful life fishing with his father. To that end, he plans to work in the capital city of Dorana for a year. However, he finds little luck in finding a job once in Dorana, until a chance encounter with Prince Gar nets him a job at the palace stables. Little does Asher know that his coming to Dorana is watched by the Circle, a clandestine group of Olken mages. Turns out that Asher is the 'Innocent Mage', who is prophesised to save Lur from the End of Days. Asher works with Matt, the stable master, and gradually adjusts to city life. He is eventually elevated to the position of Assistant Olken Administrator by Gar.
The Royal Family of Lur
Prince Gar:The first-born child of the Doranen royal family. He was born without magic, meaning that he could not take over his father's Weather Working duties and thus could not be the heir to the throne. He was set aside in favour of his sister Fane and given administrative duties to perform as the Olken Administrator. A scholarly and compassionate young man, he seeks to better understand the Olken and improve Doranen-Olken relations. To that end, he hires Asher as his assistant. He is temporarily granted magic through a spell cast by Morg, who intends to use him as a pawn.
King Borne:The king and the Weather Worker of Lur. As the Weather Worker, he controls the weather in many parts of Lur (places further away from Dorana, like Restharven, are unaffected by Weather Working) and is responsible for maintaining Barl's Wall. The constant strain of Weather Working is taking its toll on Borne, however. He is in ill health for much of The Awakened Mage.
Fane:The second-born child of the Doranen royal family and the Weather Worker-in-waiting. She was conceived after it was discovered that Gar had no magic (which was unusual, since the royal family is usually only permitted one child). She is considered a prodigy, having enough raw power to supposedly rival Barl herself. Since she is the Weather Worker-in-waiting, she spends much of her time studying and practicing magic.
Queen Dana:The queen of Lur and mother of Fane and Gar. An elegant and humorous woman, she is usually the voice of reason in her family.
Matt (Matthias):The head of the palace stables and a member of the Circle. Matt befriends Asher after the latter is hired on as a stablehand.
