    The Triplets/Demigods 

About them all:
  • Freudian Trio:
    • Trigg — Hedonistic, emotional and impulsive: Id.
    • Dimyne — Calm, down-to-earth and flexible: Ego
    • Briskir — By-the-book, uptight and the most logical: Superego. (To the point he's even an atheist despite his Divine Parentage.)

Dimyne, aka. Dina Pedersen in Oslo.
Affiliation: The Guild
Age: 13
Godly powers: Super Strength, Super Speed and athletic. Has no need for air, so she can survive under water. Can also create earthquakes.
Dimyne is the oldest of the demigods. She is responsible, the mature, and the one often take the lead if needed. Before she went to Tiladnen, Dimyne was clever in school, but modest, and her only friends were her siblings. In Tiladnen on the other hand Dimyne has found her proper place, and with the guild member Askil is it her taking the tough decisions.

When the demigods got to know that their mother, god Maèl was dead, it was Dimyne who took the heardest. Fighting the syndicate is for Dimyne an important way to honor their mother's memory.

  • Bully Hunter: subverted, she is bullied herself, and doesn't really do anything when her siblings are, they're used to it.
  • Team Mom: being the most mature of the triplets.

Briskir, aka. Balder Pedersen in Oslo.
Affiliation: The Guild
Age: 13
Godly powers: Super Sight, does not have to sleep, but has prophetic dreams when sleeping.
Briskir is the middle child of the three demigods. He is a quiet and gentle guy, yet very inteligent and reflected. Briskir believe in reason, and peaceful solutions rather than violent conflict. The devine powers he inherited from Maèl, also bears evidence of this, as Briskir not have any powers that are suitable to fight. Though that, is he skilled with the sword

Briskir settled immediately at ease with life Tiladnen, and was probably relieved to not continue his teenage life in Oslo. He is the demigod's Tiladnen expert, and knows pretty much everything of the islands and the many races that exist there.

  • Awesome, but Impractical: his no need for sleep or prophetic dreams depends on how one see it. If he sleeps he'll know what'll happen in the future, but if he stays awake he can guard the group when they sleep.
  • Badass Normal: he can't fight with his powers, but is still badass with the sword.
  • Hypocrite: according to Trigg, he does not like the fact that Trigg likes Eld, but is blushing around Rasp a lot.
  • Likes Older Women: clearly has a crush on Rasp in the 3rd book. His sisters likes older men, and their father was in love with one of the godesses that created Tiladnen, so one can easily say it's genetic.

Trigg, aka. Thea Pedersen in Oslo.
Affiliation: The Guild
Age: 13
Godly powers: makes fire, and bleeds poison.
Trigg is the youngest of the demigods. She is stubborn, willful and and was a real problem child. At Nordseter middle school she often fell into trouble and fights, and there is little doubt that Triggs dangerous god powers reflects the rebellious mind her. She was also the one who opposed going to Tiladnen and it took a long time before Trigg finally accepted and embraced her new life.

Trigg has a very special look, with bright red hair and porcelain-like face, which makes her from day one was easy to recognize for the syndicate. Despite this - and the many teenager "problems" - Trigg is willing face dangers and can be extremely brave.

    The Guild 
The Guild (Trysfelderne in Norwegian) is a resistance group fighting to prevent the alliance from taking over Tiladnen. In addition, sometimes other tiladnese choose to help the guild. Here you will find information about the guild and several of their allies:

And the alliance knows who he is, and becauce of that he cannot move freely on Tiladnen, in danger of being killed by the alliance's people or their allies.

Ramne have seen with my own eyes the horrors of the alliance is able to. Yet he knows that the world is not black and white, and eyes still hope for many of the alliance's members - he would like them to see what is right and choose to leave the alliance, before he and the guild must fight against them. At the same time he knows when words are no longer enough, and must be replaced with action.

Askil Amirill

Askil is Ramne's right hand. He is in his 20s, idealistic and ready to battle. Meanwhile Askil wise and prudent, also a good backup leader for the guild when Ramne is out on unknown assignments. Askil's parents are dead, and it is believed that Ramne is the closest he has a father.

It is his family castle is the guild headquarters. The castle, is located atop a hill in Oden on Møyland, which represents the wealth that once existed in the Amirill family. Askil's ancestors owned slaves and was very rich, and this status has gotten great respect from the alliance - which is why they have never suspected Askil's to have a role in the guild.

  • Vague Age: one only know that he is in his 20s, hopefully younger or else is Dimyne's crush on him kinda squick.

Rasp Fande
Rasp is one of the devils that occasionally pops up among the guild. She is like most devils, lively, playful and unpredictable, but also know (sometimes) the difference between right and wrong, and she always grabs the opportunity to sabotage the alliance.

Rasp is actually a half-devil - her father is a devil, and her mother is human. Yet it's the devil in Rasp who mostly wins out, in spite of that she has grown up in her human family in Våll on Møyland.

Like other devils Rasp is immortal. Because of her childish and playful nature is difficult to estimate how old she is - especially because Rasp rarely reveals it.


Drekjild is an avid young guild member and is particularly keen to fight for devil rights. She has close friendships to several devils, which is very unusual - but Drekjild has a history with the devils (which is told about in Rasp's story).

Drekjild's family died in a fire at Åshíld and Drekjild has since switched staying with the devils or with the guild. She is a loyal friend and is one of the most important members of the guild.

The cat Leon is coming from a cat colony on Ysar. Leon is the son of the colony's head, the big male cat Durum. Despite the fact that he is the boss's son is not Leon very respected in the colony, for a cat, is he both a bit too fat and too lazy.

Leon has originally orange stripes, but he is also a chameleon cat. This means that he can change color by the environment, which is a powerful ability to have when alliance steps up its pursuit of the cat colonies. Leon is, like most cats, very wary of all people - especially because of the alliance's rampage.

Despite his skepticism people have Leon learned to befriend them when Briskir saves his life in the 2nd book.


Udun is a young female faun, and one of the few fauns that sometimes helps the guild. She is sweet, shy and subdued but still very sharp - and she has faun-intuition, which gives her an added advantage in most situations.

The alliance(Or Forbundet in Norwegian) is the name of the powerful organization that attempts to control Tiladnen. The alliance is primarily concerned that humans should be the only intelligent race on Tiladnen - and they would thereby destroy all other races, the devils, the wolves, the cats and the fauns to name a few.

In addition, the alliance obessed with the Tiladnese gods, and often use the gods - and especially divine queen Céndel - as a pretext in their attempt to "purge" Tiladnen. Because the association is so concerned about the gods, is therefore the demigods of particular interest to them, and wants more than anything to get the demigods to fight on the alliance's side - if necessary, by force.
