Immortals After Dark: Character Descriptions
Click on headings for Glossary of Beings
Myst the Coveted: Nicknamed Mysty the Vampire Layer. Considered the most beautiful Valkyrie, green-eyed Myst is part fierce warrior, part beguiling seductress who can "make you want her even as she’s killing you." She has devoted her life to protecting an ancient, powerful talisman, and to fighting the Horde.
Daniela the Ice Maiden: Born of an Ice Fey mother, beautiful, elven Danii has freezing skin that can only be touched by one of her kind. Yet because her mother attempted to assassinate their king, Danii is hunted by them. She has been untouched for centuries.
Kaderin the Cold Hearted: A delicate, vulnerable, yet chilling assassin, Kaderin is the most prolific vampire killer the Valkyrie have ever known. Because of Kaderin's mercy to a vampire a millennium ago, both of her full-blood sisters (born with her as triplets) were murdered. She begged for oblivion from the sorrow and guilt, and some mysterious entity deadened her sorrow—accidentally extinguishing all of her emotions. Once known as Kaderin the Kind Hearted, she now represents the Valkyrie and the Furies in the Talisman's Hie.
Emmaline Troy: AKA: Emma the Lamb or Emma the Timid. Half-vampire, half-Valkyrie, she is exceedingly young at seventy years old and has been overprotected by her Valkyrie aunts and sheltered from the world. She fears developing blood lust like Horde vampires and has never drunk from another being.
Nïx the Ever-Knowing: AKA: Nucking Futs Nïx. The first born Valkyrie, or proto-Valkyrie as she deemed herself, raven-haired Nïx is rarely lucid and has a diabolical sense of humor. She is a soothsayer (she prefers predeterminationally-abled) who sees the future more clearly than the present, and is thought by many to be attempting to steer the outcome of the Accession.
Found in: Playing Easy to Get, A Hunger Like No Other, No Rest for the Wicked, Wicked Deeds on a Winter's Night, Dark Desires After Dusk, Kiss of a Demon King, Deep Kiss of Winter, Pleasure of a Dark Prince, Demon from the Dark, Dreams of a Dark Warrior.
Lucia the Huntress: Never far from her bow, Lucia is as mysterious as her background. Cursed to feel indescribable pain whenever she misses a shot, she has become the world's most skilled archer. She is best friends with Regin the Radiant. Garreth, brother to the werewolf king, desires her from afar, trailing her and protecting her.
Regin the Radiant: Her mother's people, The Radiant Ones, were exterminated by vampires, and Regin lives for retribution. Despite this, she has evolved into a wit and prankster, quick to laugh and striving to be the world's most immature immortal. Her kisses are as drugging and addictive as the most powerful mystical narcotics. It's rumored that centuries ago, she kissed Aidan the Fierce, a human berserker, and he's since been reincarnated at least four times, unknowingly defying death to seek her again and again. Yet always when he unconsciously returns for her, history repeats itself, and just when Aidan remembers who he was and what Regin meant to him, he is killed trying to win her.
Cara the Fair: Twin sister to Furie, who along with her is part Fury. Her purpose in life is to secretly protect a noble line of humans, watching over them as a guardian angel. One problem--the oldest son of the new generation is a thrill seeker and extreme sports enthusiast who runs Cara ragged as she races around the globe to keep him safe. She has begun to suspect he knows about her, and is trying to draw her out.
Furie: Fifty years ago, Furie, the violent Valkyrie queen, disappeared after seeking to kill the vampire Horde king. Now she is rumored to be trapped at the bottom of the ocean for the last fifty years. Her existence is to drown, only to have her immortality revive her. If the rumor is true, then she has died over four million times. If she rises, no vampire will be safe from her wrath.
Holly the Bright: AKA Holly Ashwin, PhD candidate in computational cryptography. A half-human daughter of a Valkyrie, she was struck by lightning to become a full-fledged Valkyrie. She suffers from obsessive compulsive tendencies and is the Vessel for this Accession.
Lachlain MacRieve: The king and ruthless leader of the Lykae. He was imprisoned by the Horde for nearly two centuries in a pit of fire that could never quite kill him.
Bowen MacRieve: Cousin to Lachlain and Garreth, Bowe lost his fey mate over one hundred and eighty years ago and has done nothing since then but search for a way to bring her back to him. He enters the Talismans Hie seeking a prize that could allow him to prevent her death--he will do anything to win.
Garreth MacRieve: Loyal brother to Lachlain, Garreth is the prince of the Lykae, and held Lachlain's throne for over a century. Desires Lucia, but can never tell her.
Uilleam and Munro: Twin Lykae warriors, AKA: Hot and Hotter. Ages ago, a clan seer predicted Munro's mate would be a harridan. Loyal soldiers to King Lachlain.
Nikolai Wroth: AKA: the Overlord. A brutal Estonian warlord who died three hundred years ago in the Great Northern War. He was turned into a vampire by King Kristoff to head his Forbearer army.
Sebastian Wroth: A master strategist and harsh commanding officer who fought alongside his three brothers in the Great Northern War. Sebastian was turned into a vampire against his will by Nikolai and Murdoch.
Murdoch Wroth: Second eldest of the Wroth brothers, Murdoch has been a merciless warrior since he was old enough to go to battle. As a human, he was also a renowned rake. His motto that he'd never met a woman he couldn't seduce is about to be proved false.
Conrad Wroth: Youngest of the four Wroth brothers, Conrad is a Fallen vampire and master assassin who clings to the last of his sanity.
King Kristoff: AKA: The Gravewalker. The leader of the Forbearer army and rightful king of vampires. After his crown was stolen, Kristoff stalked the battlefields of antiquity seeking the strongest, most valiant human warriors as they died, earning him the name of Gravewalker. He offered eternal life in exchange for eternal fealty to him and his growing army and plans to reclaim his kingdom.
Lothaire the Enemy of Old: A cunning and opportunistic Horde vampire, whose motives are as mysterious as his background.
Rydstrom Woede: AKA: King Rydstrom III. Deposed ruler of Rothkalina, the kingdom of the rage demons. The rare rage demon who worships logic, and rarely loses his temper or his control.
Cadeon Woede: AKA: Cadeon the Kingmaker. A brutal mercenary who specializes in usurping thrones, but can never reclaim his brother's. Cade acts as a self-appointed guard for Rydstrom. The two brothers rarely separate and are collectively called The Woede.
Mariketa the Awaited: Daughter of a fey druidess and a warlock of questionable repute, she is a young mystical mercenary. Even before her birth, she was predicted to be the Awaited One, the most powerful born to the House of Witches in centuries—but four years ago, it was also predicted that a male from the Lore would recognize her as his own and claim her. He would lock her away, guarding her with a ferocity that no magicks could defeat, thus robbing the House of her powers.
Ever since the prediction, she’s been forced to cloak and disguise herself every time she sets foot outside of her home.
Carrow: AKA: Carrow the Incarcerated. Best friend to Mariketa the Awaited, Carrow hails from the warrior class of witches and is skilled in love spells.

Melanthe the potential Queen of Persuasions: Sister to Sabine. Born with the ability to push people to do her bidding, forcing them to obey any command she utters.
