The Pennykettles

David Rain

Lucy Pennykettle/Penny

A young girl with an abundance of attitude, Lucy is Elizabeth Pennykettle's daughter and serves as an Annoying Younger Sibling for David to viciously defend. She loves dragons and harbors a wildlife fetish that essentially fuels the plot of The Fire Within. She is stubborn and strong-willed in the face of danger, often dragging David with her into such situations. Lucy has a reputation as a chatterbox with a vivid imagination. In later books, she is angsty and defiant, refusing to believe that David is dead. Her own dragon is Gwendolen, who aids Lucy in her escapades.

Liz (Elizabeth) Pennykettle/Eliza Merriman

Elizabeth Pennykettle is the mother of Lucy Pennykettle, and David Rain's landlady. Liz is a potter, specializing in the creation of clay dragons that come to life. She is the resident Team Mom of the series and if anyone has a problem, you can bet she'll be the one to help them solve it. A Proper Lady, she holds the Morality Chain of many a character and is most probably the kindest person in the Last Dragon Chronicles.

Zanna (Suzanna) Martindale/Rosanna

Zanna Martindale is introduced as a Perky Goth and quickly becomes The Hero's love interest.

Arthur Merriman

Alexa Martindale/Rain

Titular of the series, dragons come in two forms: the 'true' dragons, and the animated sculptures made in their likeness. In the parallel universe of Fireworld they are the firebirds.

'True' Dragons

Extinct for roughly 50000 years, these are the gigantic, magical lizards of old.




  • Boisterous Bruiser
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: When attempting to fight Gwilanna, he tries to make his human host grow wings. It doesn't end well. It ends with a lot of bloody, gory muscles on show.
  • Spirit Advisor: Although he doesn't talk much. Agawin usually just describes his wants or feelings to the reader.




Dragons of Wayward Crescent

Gadzooks (Zookie)







The Ix



Stygg & Griss

  • Ax-Crazy: Stygg. He kills lots of families, just to replenish Grella's sewing supplies. He gets worse after ingesting dilute Ix.
  • Blood Lust: Stygg, after becoming infected by diluted Ix in Gwilanna's blood.
  • Jerkass: After all they did to Grella? You can't read those descriptions and not feel sick for the poor girl.
  • Licking the Blade: Stygg does this after he cuts Gwilanna. This doesn't end well for him...
  • Too Dumb to Live: Stygg.
