Lady Andrade

The head of all Sunrunners and Rohan's aunt. She marries Rohan to Sioned to try to give her family a magical advantage over the other princes and kickstarts a movement to give birth to princes with magic rather than keeping magic and royal lines separate.

  • Fifty Gambit Pileup: She makes gambits all around, and usually they work. Until Sioned kills her.

Princess Pandsala

Roelstra's second daughter. She is exiled from Princemarch after trying to derail Ianthe's plot to ruin Palila and is discovered to have Sunrunner powers. After Roelstra's death, she is made Princess-Regent of Princemarch until Pol is old enough to rule.

Princess Naydra

Lady Kiele

Lady of Waes and one of Roelstra's daughters.

Lady Chiana

Roelstra's fourteenth daughter, and the reason for Palila's death. Roelstra named her after the old word for 'treachery', after finding out about his daughter and mistress's scheme to replace her with a boy baby. She was possibly switched at birth with Masul.

  • Switched at Birth: Possibly with Masul. He is killed before the matter is resolved.
  • Spoiled Brat: In Dragon Prince.

Roelstra's possible son, Switched at Birth with Chiana in the Fifty Gambit Pileup on the day of his birth.

Princess Lallante

Roelstra's wife, and mother of four of his children.

  • Defector from Decadence: She was really a pure-blooded Sorceress who used her marriage with Roelstra to escape her controlling peers. Ianthe, Pandsala, and Naydra inherited her powers.
  • Posthumous Character: She's long dead by the time of the series.

Lady Palila

    Other Royalty 

Prince Miyon of Cunaxa

  • Jerkass: He sees himself as superior to everyone and doesn't hesitate to show it.
  • Smug Snake
  • Zero Percent Approval Gambit: He's deliberately a jerkass to his child, Meiglan, to make Pol feel sympathy for her. It works, but it also makes Meiglan refuse to help him.

Lady Meiglan

One of Miyon's many illegitimate children, she is part of the Cunaxan diplomatic party to the Desert.

  • Heroic Bastard: Despite being used as a Honey Trap, Meiglan is a kind but timid girl.
  • Honey Trap: Intended to be one for Pol. It succeeds, but she uses him to escape her father rather than to help him.
  • Mysterious Waif: Invoked to be used to seduce Pol.
  • Wounded Gazelle Gambit: Miyon is deliberately cruel to her to appeal to Pol's sense of honour and pity. It works, though Meiglan really is that timid and shy.


  • Red Right Hand: Sorcerers will not get seasick on water, while Sunrunners do.


A sorceress determined to dethrone Lady Andrade and Rohan and become queen of all the kingdoms.

  • Big Bad: After Roelstra dies, she takes over this role.
  • Determinator: Works magic despite being imprisoned with steel, which shreds a magic user's soul, and being in heavy withdrawal.
  • Red Right Hand: Her eyes usually stay the same colour when she shapeshifts.
  • Shapeshifting Seducer: Seduces Pol disguised as Meiglan.
  • Vain Sorceress: She often uses spells to conceal her true age and appearance.


Ianthe's oldest son, and Roelstra's heir presumptive until his assumed death.


Ianthe's second son.


Ianthe's third son.

  • Bastard Bastard
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Hollis is able to kill him because of the power augmentation the Drannath he addicted her to gave her.
  • Manipulative Bastard: He does an excellent job as the mole and would have succeeded in all his goals had Pandsala not recognized him at the last second.
  • The Mole: Sent to infiltrate the Sunrunners and steal back the Star Scroll on Sorceries.
  • Poisonous Friend: To Hollis.
  • The Starscream: Intends to usurp Mireva with the knowledge in the Star Scroll. He dies before he can put this plan into action.
