Added DiffLines:

* BloodKnight: Baelan. He's frustrated with the lack of battles worth fighting in Greystone Valley and wants to open up the valley's access to other worlds specifically so he can build new armies and spend the rest of his life in battle.

Added DiffLines:

* KidHero: Sarah especially, but Kay as well.

Added DiffLines:

* TheLoad: Kay, to an extent. His spells get Sarah into more trouble than not, although he does come in handy from time to time.
