This series contains Loads and Loads of Characters, and so this list is nowhere near complete. Instead it tries to lists the most important characters. Please note that there are tropes and characters that do not show up until books three and four, which have not yet been released in English.

     Tungdil Goldhand

Tungdil is a dwarf adopted by The Archmage Lot-Ionan, who longs for adventure. When tasked to journey to the dwarven king to be a pawn in his plan he manages to find his own way and starts his quest to save the world for the first time.

  • An Axe to Grind
  • The Blacksmith: Like most dwarves he enjoys smithing.
  • The Chosen One: Subverted with the fact that he is only candidate for king because it is a part of the king's gambit.
  • Genius Bruiser: Due to being adopted by Lot-Ionan he is very smart, and Boïndil teaches him to kick ass later.
  • Good Is Not Nice: In book four.
  • The Hero: In the first two books. In the later books this role shifts to Boïndil, together with the point of view.
  • Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: Only occasionally, but he was raised by scholar mages. He does know enough to generally tailor his language to the circumstance, though.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Several throughout the series, especially between books three and four.

He and his brother are first ordered to guard Tungdil, but this slowly blossoms into a life-long relationship as they accompany him on his quests.


Boïndil's twin brother and the only one able to cool him down. Is much calmer than Boïndil but still an amazing fighter.

An actor they pick up along the way who constantly brags about his acting ability. Turns out he really is as good as he clams.

     Andokai The Tempestuous
An Archmage and servant of a balance god. She is appropriately morally grey.


Andokai's massive armoured companion.

  • Bodyguarding a Badass: Played with. Andokai is certainly capable of taking care of herself, but in times this dangerous, even she requires backup. In fact, he saves the entire group more than once.
  • Divine Parentage: Is straight up said to be the son of Andokai's god.
  • Humanoid Abomination: He sure isn't human.
  • Tin Tyrant: Is completely obscured by his armour, and is massive to boot.


Lot-Ionan is one of the realm's Archmages. He adopted Tungdil and is like a father to him.

The big bad of book 1. He was originally an Archmage, but he let the evil of the Perished Land take over his mind.

An alf who is helping to lead the charge against Girdlegaard.
