ZK:

Full Name: Unknown

Species: Cursed Human

Hair: Blonde hair that tousles over unto his ears and forehead almost covering his ears.

Eyes: Sparkling emeralds

Characteristics: His eyes are honest and solemn, thin flaxen eyebrows exaggerate his solemn look. He has pale peach skin. He has a mysterious yet tender way of speaking to people and animals. He has a well-built body and a long scar on his left arm. He moves solidly and quickly whether fighting or walking. His smile is short and assuring.

Personality/Background: He and his family were originally cave dwellers. After living in the cave for seven years they find a cave dwarf. The cave dwarf cursed his family because they found him. The curse was made so that they always had to have the cave's stone walls to give them strength to stay alive. His family decided it was best to leave the caves after this incident. They tried many things and finally they found out that the cave walls could be carved into bricks and they would still give them life. It took seven more years to carve enough bricks from the cave to make a small castle; they called it “Zelfurca”. While carving the cave into bricks they found a half human cave sprite which they let become a part of their family. Finally after three more years the castle was finished. They lived happily for four more years and his parents found out that the stone were weakening in their power supply. They figured out that they had to give it actual human lives to keep it going because when they carved from the walls of the cave it limited its power. His parents sacrificed themselves to the stone walls of the castle so that they could give their son, ZK more time to live. First his father sacrificed himself when he was seven and then his mother when he was eleven. His mother and father left Miles, the cave sprite that was part human, to take care of their son. They showed him how to transfer life supply to ZK from the walls and everything else about their curse. Miles took care of ZK, whose full real name was taken by the cave dwarf when he was a baby, and ZK lived fairly happily with Miles. Sometimes he misses his parents and he talks to the walls of the castle wondering if his parents can hear him.
He is usually very quiet, but he likes to talk to people he knows well. He hates mirrors because when he was young he once looked in a mirror and because of his strange aura of power he shares with the stone walls of the castle the mirror broke; he decided he never wanted to look in a mirror again. He has a hard time showing his true feelings toward anyone and he tries to change the subject whenever someone tries to ask him how he feels. He often goes outside the castle grounds alone and without telling Miles to see if he can find people in trouble. That is the way he copes with his curse and life by helping people who are in danger or who just need a hand. He especially likes it went there is fighting involved and he can use his sword, “The Onyx”. It is called that because of its strange way of changing from white to black or black to white at different times when ZK uses it.

Attire: He wears a cream-colored, long-sleeved shirt with the cuffs rolled back twice above his elbow. He also wears some black-colored slacks made from the veins from the giant leaves of the black veil tree, the third most unique tree of the forest of Neva. His pants can keep his legs dry and also warm or cool depending on his needs. It also can absorb shock in his legs so that he can jump from about a three hundred foot cliff without hurting himself much if he lands on his feet. He has a black pearl about the size of a woman’s eye on a chain around his neck. His mother gave it to him when he was baby because it was passed down from generation to generation on her mother’s side. He likes to think that his mother’s eye was as shiny as the pearl she gave to him.

Minna:

Full name: Minna Day Dorsis

Species: Human

Hair: She has Auburn hair that comes down to her shoulders. She often wears a part of it in a tiny braid on one or the other side of her face. She ties the braid off with a metal clip that she begged to be made from her father’s armor.

Eyes: Glossy Hazel

Characteristics: Her eyes have a look of adventurous spirit in them. Her dark brown eyebrows that she kneads up and down sometimes give her a determined look. Her slightly tanned and scratch marked skin shows that she has traveled a lot outside in the sun and has been through a few battles or trials on her pathway. She usually keeps a big smile on her face, but sometimes she gets discouraged and she makes herself fade into the background so that no one notices her let-down. She runs smoothly and at an even pace so as to keep her strength going for as long as needed. She is lithe and can fit into most tight spaces. She could skinny up a tree as high as seven yards long in a few moments depending on the width and texture of the tree. She can jump fairly high too.

Personality/Background: Minna’s father was a famous swordsman and warrior, known for putting his self out to save his comrades. She was very proud of her father and she loved him very much. She loved to hear his gruff voice speak about distant lands and battles he had seen every night before she went to bed. One day her father went off to battle and he didn’t come back for the longest time. After a long time past a person came on horseback and gave her mother a letter. Her father was dead. The next day her father’s armor and belongings were brought to her and her mother. She took a part of the armor and the next time she went to town she asked the blacksmith there to make it into a clip for her hair so that she could always have a part of him with her. She worked hard and finally the blacksmith gave in. He made the clip for her. When she put the clip in her hair she vowed that she would become a great warrior like her father and protect people from harm whenever she could. From that day on she protected people wherever she found them in need of protecting.
Minna is very spirited and adventurous, but she has a quiet side. When she is at home, she plays the part of a gentlewoman except wear a long dress which her mother greatly disapproves of. She does everything a proper young lady would do; Sewing, cooking cleaning, minding her manners, being a good hostess, shopping for her mother, doing work in the garden, making hats, medicines, and food to sell, and taking care of the animals. She likes to keep this world of hers secret is possible and tells nobody about it, she just lets them find out on their own. Sometimes sprites would come to them and ask to do work for food. Minna never turned them away because she felt sorry for them. Her mother was kind of scared of sprites because of the rumors that if they got you alone they tear you to shreds with their claws and eat you. Minna knew this was possible so she made sure that she always hid a dagger under her skirts. Sometimes the sprites would attack her and she would easily defeat them. If they begged for mercy she would let them go, but made a mark on their wrists to tell their sprite friends that she was not to be messed with. When she was gone from her home and traveling through fields and forest she would keep a look out for sprites, people, and even helpless. When she found one she immediately pounced on the enemies and would hold them off until the people left. Then she would jump off the enemy and see if they would stay and fight her or leave. Practically all the time they would choose to fight her. She smiled extra wide when they chose to fight because she loved a challenge. She would bring out her father’s sword, “The Sky Warrior” and she would fight them until she defeated them or they ran off in fear. Her first move on any of her enemies was for the wrists; she always marks them with a circle with a diagonal slash down middle of it before she slays them. She loves to cook and read and often thinks about the day when she lives up to her father’s name. She trains everyday and works with the “The Sky warrior” so that she can become better with it. She also trains with a bow arrow and she can use that as a weapon too. She likes to feel in charge and often bosses around animal sprites that are twelve years and up, when their parents live them with her; though she never tells them to do something wrong or something that she couldn’t do when she was their age. She doesn’t want to be friends with anyone with a normal life in fear that if she became friends with anyone like that they would make her feel obliged to be with them and make her stay away from her roaming and battles.

Attire: She wears very durable skirts made from a special fabric that a friendly silkworm sprite makes for her. She dyes the fabric a dark color so that if she is in the dark she can’t be seen easy. For the top she wears a wrap-around blouse also made from the fabric of silkworm sprite. She wraps the shirt around her body tightly once she gets her arms through the sleeves and then she ties it off with the belt for her father’s sword and a belt made from the hide of a boar sprite just in case one of the belts break. She also has a string attached to the neck of the blouse so she can tie it there too.

Miles:

Full name: Winhu Miles Atche

Hair: He has Salt and Pepper hair that is parted on the side and combed flat

Eyes: Laughing golden eyes

Species: Part human and part cave sprite

Characteristics: Miles has laughing eyes and black bushy eyebrows that are in semi circles to make him look sillier. He has very tan skin. Sometimes he can use his powers as a cave sprite to light up the dark or play illusions on people though he doesn’t use his powers often because he likes acting like a simple human. He usually wears a comical grin on his face and he can make other kooky expressions to make people laugh. He is slightly smaller than an average human and he walks slowly and prudently because he likes to observe everything with each step. Children usually like him because of his funny, quiet way of talking, walking, and doing things.

Personality/Background: Miles was born with a cave sprite for a father and human for a mother. They lived a happily for a long time just inside the cave so his mother could live comfortably. He had many relatives and they all stayed together even if they had differences. His family was considered an inside outsider because of his human mother and her children; that means that they treated them politely when his father was around, but they snubbed them out when his father was gone. Miles, his brothers and sisters had to be very careful when they explored the cave by themselves so as not to get ambushed by flying rocks being thrown by full-blooded cave sprite children. His mother also had to fend for her self. She had to gather her own food because none of the men or woman sprites would help her. She also had to teach Miles and his sisters and brothers school by her self too because the people who held schooling meetings for the cave sprite children wouldn’t let her children in. It was hard for Miles, but he always stayed happy and grinning. Since he was the oldest it was his job to protect everybody and keep them happy and well as best as he could. He did too at least to the best of his ability. He lived mostly happy with the rest of the cave sprites; he was sad when his parents died of old age and one of his little sisters from a sickness, he was proud when two of his brothers became successful in a business, wondering what business the rest of his siblings would choose to follow, and hoping one day people will overlook his relation of human blood and his family. One day a catastrophe happened inside the cave; the cave was threatening to collapse! In the hullabaloo of running to get out of the cave to save themselves Miles was separated from the rest of his cave sprite relatives. He tried to find them, but they were completely gone and he didn’t know where. He tried not to let it bother him, but he was lonely and sad without his family. He wondered if his siblings thought he died in the cave, which so happened didn’t collapse. He made himself grin and bear it and he lived inside the cave alone. Then ZK’s parents came and they invited him into their family. He was happy to live with someone even though he was about thirty years old and was definitely able to live alone by sprite and human standards. He helped them carve the blocks from the cave with his cave sprite powers after he found out about their curse and promised not to tell a soul about it. He lived happily inside the castle with Master ZK (that’s what he calls him) and his parents. He thought of it as a sort of replacement of the family he did lose even if he wouldn’t forget him. He liked making ZK happy and helping to transfer life supply from the castle walls into ZK and his parents, especially ZK because ZK didn’t like to lay on the transferring table with his shirt off. He then sadly took the responsibility of taking care of ZK when his parents decided to sacrifice themselves for ZK’s sake.

Miles is quiet, funny, and respectful. He sometimes plays tricks on Master ZK to get him to laugh. He likes to tease Master ZK, but he does it reverently. Sometimes Miles wishes ZK wouldn’t leave so often because he feels lonely inside of Zelfurca castle without anyone around. After getting everything done that is needed he goes outside and see the animals around him; ZK and the animals are the only ones who don’t care if he is a half-blooded human cave sprite or not. Sometimes he might see a sprite family past by on their way to spring to have a swim or something. When he does he thinks of his family and wonders what happened to siblings since he wasn’t there to protect and help them. Then he goes inside to grab a book and comes back out to read and wait for ZK. He eats outside too and when he finishes a book he just gets another one and another one until ZK is back. He often wishes for an indifferent companion during ZK’s long absences so he didn’t feel so lonely.

Attire: He wears a brown-colored vest and a white long-sleeved shirt. He wears the same black-colored pants as ZK; in fact he even made it his self, working patiently and diligently every night to make the fabric and then sew the clothes together making about seven pairs for his self and Master ZK; every once in awhile Miles will make more fabric from the veins of the giant leaves of the black veil tree in the forest of Neva. Miles wears a blue cap with a yellow crescent moon on it that was giving to him by his mother; it was big then, but it fits him just right, now.

Calson:

Full name: Calson of the forest of Neva

Species: German Shepherd dog

Eyes: Twinkling ebony eyes

Hair: Fur markings natural to a German shepherd

Characteristics: His eyes show loyalty to people he likes and annoyance to people he doesn’t. His dog tail wags up and down instead of side to side which makes him unique to the forest of Neva. His teeth stay white no matter how much or what he eats and one of his paw’s pads and nails are all pink instead of black like the rest. He walks straight and leisurely taking his own sweet time unless otherwise necessary.

Personality/Background: He was born in the valley of Neva right under the roots of the Angus Tree, the fifth most unique tree in the valley of Neva. His siblings died after a few days and he was the only one who lived. He didn’t have a father, but he loved his mother very much. His mother would feed him the fruit of the Angus tree when he was old enough; it had a bitter, brittle texture to it, but he ate it and he became strong and courageous with continuous meals of the fruit. He began to get use to its taste and sometimes if he was lucky it tasted a bit sweet. His mother ate the fruit too and she became strong and clever. The Angus tree protected her inhabitants from strange sprites looking for food and natural phenomenon like fires and earthquakes. In return Calson’s mother stayed there to live forever in the roots of the tree. One day Calson was old enough to leave and explore the forest. His mother gave him a string with a special orchid on it. She said it would allow him to travel outside of the forest. She said if he lost it he would immediately transport him back to Angus Tree and he would have to wait for Angus tree to grow another one for him. He went out and followed along the river of Neva sometimes going out of the forest and going in the mountains or forests of the human world. Just doing nothing and letting himself just follow the river for no purpose. He would help animals along the way and fight some sprites who wanted to eat him and get his fur. He just drifted here and there in hopes of a purpose.
Calson longs to have someone to stand by, trust, protect, and love. His heart knew that was the purpose that the Queen of Neva gave to him. He doesn’t know it yet though and he tries to help out smaller animals that can’t really defend themselves against the sprites that also lived in the forest. He likes to help animals and even sprite children who are lost or in trouble, often giving them rides on his back if they’re tired afterwards. He travels around the forest looking for a purpose; something to fill the emptiness in him. He is a good guy though he hides it pretty well by acting as if he was just there and he thought he should save you just in case there is another hungrier thing out there that needs live food. He comes back to his mom once in awhile to see how she is doing and to bring her gifts from his travels. He feels happy when he is around her and he knows she is protected and happy inside the little furrow in the roots of the tree.

Attire: He has a silver earring in his left ear because he once saw some humans that passed by the Angus tree and one of them had an earring and he decided he wanted one too. He always wears the orchid on the string around his neck so that he can go outside the forest if he wanted. If he loses it he goes back to Angus tree to be with his mom and wait for a new orchid to grow. He carries a little sling around his neck that he carries around so that if he finds some cool treasures on his journeys he can carry them with him until he goes back to his mom.

Kalla:

Full name: Kalla Aylex

Species: Fox Sprite

Eyes: Red

Hair: Short orange hair

Personality/background: Kalla's parents died when she was young so she lived with her pack's village elder. When the elder died he had no children and since Kalla was like a daughter to him she became the princess of the pack. One day when she was trying to let her mind loose for all the duties of the fox sprite's princess, she ran into the fox sprite enemies of her tribe. All she had to defend herself was her claws, strength, and whatever else was around her. She was against four fox sprites with spears and her energy quickly gave out by doging all the attacks. When she fell to the ground, to tired to fight anymore she was prepared to meet her death bravely, but then her hero came, ZK. ZK taught the fox sprites a lesson and gave Kalla a special medicidal potion that would help her recover from her injuries and wounds quickly. Kalla was just about to ask him his name when he just vanished. Since she was a fox sprite she found his scent and followed it to Zelfurca Castle. She then vowed that she would love and follow her divine hero to the end of her days.
Kalla has a temper, but she manages to control it except when someone tells her that she can't do something because she is a girl. She loves ZK very much and becomes jealous of Minna when she finds out about her. She kind of stalks ZK and when he isn't looking she steals the stuff he leaves around campfires he makes for rest at ngith because she likes his smell. She likes to walk at night to clear her mind of the day's activities and to forget her princess duties to her tribe. She hopes to marry ZK one day, but after many tries to remove her competition and many years of getting over ZK she decides she doesn't care for ZK anymore and looks for a fox, wolf, or even a certain dog to become her lover.

Attire: She wears the hide of a wild boar that she slew with her own hands as a skirt and a blouse that was made from the threads of a fireweed worm's silk. She wears a necklace of red apple pearls that her father gave her mother and her mother gave to her before she died; she treasures it with all her heart.
