Although Abraxas has a strong spiritual sense, he questions whether the gods should be regarded as morally superior to mankind merely because they created the universe.

Elektra always has a sweet song on her lips to charm the people she meets. She believes all conflict is best settled by compromise, an attitude that makes her a natural diplomat and peacekeeper. As well as helping to calm the tense military situation in Akatsurai, she would like to play music at the court of the sovereign – a signal honour for a travelling minstrel.

A clever and resourceful survivor, Ithacus suffers from a restless nature that forces him to stay on the move.

His latest ambition is to scale the Kenen Mountains and see if the rumours of silver mines are true.

Kintu believes weapons are for sissies and prefers to fight with his fists. People who have met Kintu describe him as constantly seething with proud anger, perhaps because he was unjustly exiled from his homeland. He has heard about the skilled martial artists of Akatsurai and intends to show them a thing or two.

A quietly competent young man, Panjang has dedicated himself to mastery of the mystic arts through a regime of fasting, meditation, and breathing exercises. He is intrigued by the mysteries of the Black Pagoda in Oni Province, but knows he must train hard before he will be ready to undertake the adventure.

She’s easy to miss, this slip of a girl clad all in black, with her voice like a wisp of silk. Then you miss your hoard of gold or silver too; when you look for Shikibu she’s no longer there. She is determined to obtain the antique golden katana kept in the Imperial Palace in Chambara – and nothing is going to stop her.
