Haydn: Also known as Shadow Von Wolfsbane, Haydn is the wolf-captain of Nagaria, and the main antagonist for the first novel in this trilogy. He’s the son of a legendary general Erabrus Von Wolfsbane, and brother of the huntress/assassin Ivanna. Growing up as the elder brother, Haydn was expected to take the crown one day, and he trained ruthlessly to become strong enough to rule his war-loving country with respect and power. However, he has a soft side for his sister and despite the fact that she doesn’t seem to return his love, he’ll do anything to keep her safe. When his father goes under deep cover to infiltrate a rebel base and steal their plans to defeat the evil empire that Nagaria is allied with, Haydn assumes control of the country and leads it on a rampage against the rebels and personally against the MC of the novel, Kirin. However, he later has a redemption arc after his best friend/guard turns out to be a spy for the rebels themselves and tries to kill him, forcing Haydn to fight back, but Haydn cannot bring himself to kill his friend. His guard then attempts to stab him, but his father steps in and dispatches his ex-guard. Shamed as a coward, Haydn begins to question if what they are doing is right after this circumstance, and eventually when he fails to capture Kirin and his gang he’s thrown in jail by the Emperor himself only to be later reluctantly rescued by Kirin and his gang. Eventually, he comes around and becomes a valuable ally in fighting against the Emperor and later on in life he becomes a famous peace-keeper and kind ruler for his war-torn nation.
Jax: Jax is half-elf, in a world where elves are despised and basically considered “pure evil” because of a mass genocide led by elves about 20 years before the story starts. Jax’s mother was an elf in hiding, but as elves have feline-like eyes and reflexes, they have to take a drug that dilates their pupils and slows their reactions to a normal human’s speed. Jax’s father was a nobleman who fell in love with his mother(who was a maid in his manor) and later when their child was born he saw the boy’s feline-like eyes and realized the woman he loved was actually an elf. Enraged and betrayed, he chased her off his grounds threatening to kill her or turn her into the gov’t. His mother and him fled to Eastrim(basically the eastern continent) and lived on the streets until later she died of illness. A gang leader named Torma found 2-year-old Jax wandering around and took him in after realizing he was part elf, training him to be an assassin and tool for her criminal empire. As the years went on, he became somewhat notorious among outlaws and made Torma’s gang quite rich and powerful. But Torma craved power, and eventually after a while Jax began to realize what he was doing wasn’t right, and asked Torma if he could “buy his freedom/leave”, which she refused. She then sent him on a mission to destroy an entire noble family who’d killed one of her best men, but he couldn’t justify killing everyone so he refused and Torma tried to kill him. Jax managed to escape and was wandering for a while, trying to figure out what to do with his life and what to do with his sudden want fix his past mistakes, when a man hires him to track down his missing friend. He finds the friend, who turns out to by Vyrn, and Kirin with her. They decide to recruit him as part of their team.
Vyrn: Vyrn is a descendant of a once proud and ancient sea-faring people who were mostly nomadic in nature and who traveled around Eastrim on ships. When the Emperor took over Eastrim, he killed off most of the nobles of these people(including Vyrn’s family). Her mother raised her up to one day take back their empire, and Vyrn grew up learning to fight and sail before she could walk. However, she was not a fighter by nature and didn’t want to rule a nation. She and her butler/guard/friend ran away when she was 17, and then she became a bit of a rogue, causing trouble and starting fights. When she gets picked up by the Emperor’s guards and thrown in prison, Jax is the one who rescues her and Kirin from prison. She then joins Kirin and helps convince Jax to join them, because she wants to try and figure out what she can do to help since she feels obligated to help them defeat the Emperor for her mother’s sake, since her mother died not too long ago after she ran away. She struggles with anger and asking others for help, and it gets the gang into trouble more than once. She even faces off against Haydn once after a huge fight between him and Kirin, and nearly kills him but is stopped by Jax. Later on, she manages to let go of some of her anger and becomes a healer, and also one of the main helping forces in Haydn’s redemption arc.
All of these characters are from the same book, if you didn’t notice. XD
