Jakov Isriel, the amnesiac true king. He has to fight to get his throne back, which is quite a fun process, actually.
Sonakali is the Throne Warden, one of the few remaining in the bands of the Kali. She is a shape-shifter, a magical being that can take the form of a unicorn or a human at will. She mostly chooses to take the shape of a young woman, for various reasons.
Jadira al-Salidin is my heroine! She's a spunky Princess turned Gypsy, turned Princess, turned homeless vagrant. Quite an interesting girl, as you can tell. She is a Yahafin, a group of people something like Arabians. They live in the vast deserts of Kadrah.
This is Tomas Jolend, who is a "bad guy" in the beginning, but really isn't so bad once you get to know him. He's actually quite pleasant. And as you can see from this set, he and Jakov have a bit of a rivalry. Since it's rather small here, here's what it says:
(Tomas is first, Jakov second)
"Well, don't blame me. It's not my fault my forefathers stole from you'rs."
"I wouldn't be so sure about that, Jolend."
"Really, Isriel? Well, let me make it clearer for you. It was seven hundred years ago, and you're only jealous."
"Really? How so?"
"Oh, I don't know. Because your girlfriend likes me better than you?"
"Just man up and admit you've lost, Isriel."
"That...that...shut up. Just shut up. I'm your king, anyway."
"Whatever you say, my liege."
I don't know if I'm going to actually be able to utilize this conversation. But I hope I will. Because it is brilliant, if I do say so myself.
So there you are! My NaNo characters--at least, the good ones. :))
