Ted Kennway

The head of the powerful Kennway family in Hebecil.

  • Ambiguously Evil: While he seems opposed to his son, there's nothing to suggest that he's on anyone's side but his own either.
  • Bigger Bad: Markus is the primary antagonist for Silas and Cicero, but Ted is the head of the Kennways.
  • Evil Old Folks: Supposedly.
  • The Patriarch
  • Pirate

A high ranking member of the Kennway family, in control of a large part of the island nation, planning a rebellion against his father.

  • Faux Affably Evil: Appears rather polite at first when speaking with Silas and Cicero, but then reveals his more malicious side.

  • King Incognito: Of a sort; he's one of the last remaining Allens, who were once the most powerful family in Hebecil but were all executed in a rebellion.

     Iviwapa 

Silas Victarion

An Elven bounty hunter with an intricate past whom Cicero Marius meets in Iviwapa.

  • Anti-Hero / Anti-Villain: Could easily be read as either. He isn't nice, and he'll gladly shoot innocent people if paid the right price; but he was also a loving husband, and is far more practical than his impulsive partner Cicero.
  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: He's very prideful and showy about his marksmanship.
  • Badass Boast: To his crew in Hebecil.
    "You might be a lazy pile of bilge rats now, but by the time I'm through with you, you'll be certified pirates that know when to set sail, when to slit throats, and when to shut up and do what I tell you! I'm from Gildenor, and there...we got navies that would make you lot wet yourselves with blood. And that's exactly what you're going to do if you don't follow my orders to the letter."
  • Badass Creed: "No gods. No masters."
  • Badass Longcoat
  • Berserk Button: Slavery, and being told what to do by a higher authority.
  • Bounty Hunter
  • Break the Haughty: His time in Hebecil sees him suffer defeat and servitude to rival pirates, which sparks his descent into more blatant villainy.
  • The Captain: When he and Cicero go to Hebecil, he begins to assemble a fleet to use against the powerful Kennway pirate family.
  • Cool People Rebel Against Authority: Lives this trope to the fullest.
  • Cynical Mentor: To Cicero, when it comes to bounty hunting.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Cicero enters a tavern to find him expertly shooting a mounted boar's head square between the eyes with a crossbow.
  • Graceful Loser: Accepts his defeat in his duel with Cicero quite well. Averted when he goes to Hebecil and loses terribly to multiple opponents. The trope only seems to apply under honorable conditions.
  • The Gunslinger
  • Interspecies Romance: His wife was human.
  • Jerkass: Very rude to Cicero upon first meeting him, and even after travelling with him for awhile.
    • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: It's hinted multiple times that he's a nicer person that he lets on, but he repeatedly seems drawn into being a murderous and selfish killer.
  • The Lost Lenore: His dead wife, Serana.
  • Mind Rape: Subjected to a slight form of it by Cicero's emotionally charged spell.
  • The Mutiny: Was mutinied against during his old pirating days.
  • Nominal Hero: In his more heroic moments, anyway.
  • Pirate: Was one in his youth, and becomes one again when he and Cicero travel to Hebecil.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: As a pirate captain, he's far more concerned with longterm goals than raiding and pillaging for no reason.
  • Revenge: Seeks it on the Ferrious royal family in Varia for killing Serana.
  • Slave Liberation: An excuse to kill slavers seems to be a big part of why he's a bounty hunter.
  • Villain Protagonist: Could be read as one.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: Ambiguously so.

Feste "the Fool"

The world-weary, and fairly inebriated, Court Jester of Kermulvia's Royal villa. Fed up with the infighting between the various Villas, Feste decides to join Patrick on his journey to Altekrai.
