Despite being the black sheep in her family for certain dragon-like tendencies, Corgwyn is a sharp and self assured elfling. She has spent her youth working in trading posts to learn business/persuasion - and to stay away from her family. She has developed her arcane powers by practicing alone at night. No one knows she has them.
Kept as a mine slave for most of his life, Cronan knows little of the outside world, but he does know rage. It's driven him mad and now that he’s escaped he’ll make someone pay for every lash he suffered.
Kitsuki Kagemusha was the last child of a mild-mannered but gifted male Kitsuki magistrate and a deadly female Miromuto samurai. His mother’s mother (i.e. his maternal grandmother) was a famous warrior and tactician, renowned throughout the Dragon clan for her bravery.
Like his older sister and brother, Kagemusha longed to follow in his grandmother’s footsteps and be a great warrior. Unfortunately, unlike them, he had none of his mother’s talents. Try as he might, Kagemusha was always unsure of his footing, clumsy in his gait and stance, and awkward when wielding a blade.
However, fate did smile on Kagemusha. He may not have inherited any of his mother’s grace or ability with a sword but he did inherit his grandmother’s tactical sense. That, along with the hereditary dogged persistence and keen eye of his father, made him excel as a magistrate.
