In Northenden

Sir Osark, Lord of Northenden
Osark Undraden is a retired knight, and it's visible in his build. Though he has now developed a little paunch, he is a sturdy, muscular man and stands taller than almost anyone in the village. He has curly, large, slightly reddish hair and a full beard and light blue eyes.
His past is obscure; it seems he did little more than serve his own lord dutifully and uneventfully. Now he is about 40 and has been in command of Northenden for eight years. He was dispatched after the previous lord died, heirless, of consumption. He is a bachelor, and the last remaining member of the Undraden clan. He is fair toward the villagers, though not particularly kind. He plainly sees himself as belonging to a rather separate world. Though recently, he has warmed up to the commoners a bit more as he has little other source of company.

Marya, daughter of the miller, Rimley.
DECEASED (complications from childbirth). She served as a maid in the Manor house. Rumoured to be having explicit relations with the lord of the manor. She is the mother of THE BABY!!, or was since she is now dead. But really, she still is.

Gurt, manor stablehand
DECEASED (decapitated by the hand of justice). A softspoken, diligent fellow who has stolen a horse and a baby and seems to have gotten himself rather in over his head. He competed with Lord Osark for Marya's affections.

Amnesty Owen, Georgie's mum, healer
Looking at Amnesty, it's easy to see where his red hair comes from. She is kind hearted, but somewhat set in her ways, and usually stays in her small hut on the outskirts of town. She recently earned Osark's good favour by looking after Marya while she was dying.

Normand, George's father
DECEASED (killed by Taelda). A former mercenary who settled down. Now he is badly crippled after an accident in a storm and plagued by all manner of fevers and depressive swings.

Jeb, the Blacksmith
An ill tempered, big man, heavily muscled and full of beard. He is very good at what he does though, and charges medium high, but justified prices. He is known to spend a lot of time at the tavern.

Anna, a young lass

Father Rameus, the Priest
He takes religion seriously, but is a kind man. The village children enjoy playing in the orchard near the chapel.

Rothmar, the tavernkeeper
A relatively outgoing man, not local though, he arrived in the village fourteen years ago to set up the "Blundering Widget". He has a wife and one son.

Jodrin, the beadle
The closest the village has to a police force.

Klybe, the reeve
Lives in the manor with Sir Osark, and is in charge of the running of the household, and the farms.

DECEASED (Spear through the chest. First casualty of Taelda raiding party.) Rolan's father. In charge of maintaining the woodlands around Northenden.

Abroad

Hired by Osark to solve the Taelda Problem.

Sir Hargalen, of Eichel

Simulus, sagely priest
A man of the cloth (relgious, not tapestritical) who is a man of great wisdom. His particular area of specialization is the Corani empire that existed on Harn hundreds of years ago. He is the librarian at Caleme Abbey, near Tashal.

Aldrazul, old wacky dude.
DECEASED (speared, stabbed and beheaded by Rolan). Aldrazul was a rather perverse old man who seemed fond of associating with barbarians, dismembering people from all walks of life, and baby-stealing.

Feniri, Taelda chieftain.
DECEASED (beheaded by Sir Osark Undraden, pummelled by Tal). A large brute of a man who came to power in the Taelda camp by deposing the old leader who he saw as weak for falling under Aldrazul's sway. He wouldn't take no guff from nobody, and then he died.
