Bitter and irratable, Audriel almost never smiles and certainly isn't the one to see the bright side of things. When he's not grousing, and even when he is, he is a skilled outdoorsman and marksman. His keen elfin senses give the group an advantage in most situations, and his tendency to see things in black and white is also, on occasion, useful in social situations.

Jerome is best described as a man at peace with the world. Nothing seems to ruffle his feathers, least of all mornings. His cheery mood and pacifistic nature would make him a perfect candidate for the group peacemaker, a role he is often left to fill, but he actually serves as the group leader and the others readily follow his direction.

Kevlin prefers not to get worked up over things, but he doesn't always succeed. Like most men, he also prefers using his sword to solve his problems, but usually refrains for Jerome's sake. His interests are usually Jerome's, and so he reliably serves as Jerome's spokesman in situations where Jerome's soft face and manner would work against him.

Sultry one moment, and stoic the next, it would seem Eloise doesn't need a reason to do anything other than she feels like it. One thing, however, is clear, and that is that she likes to laugh, especially when it is more appropriate to cry. While the others aren't often thrilled with her, she's always the most willing to do the necessary unpleasant work, and so they tolerate her presence.

Than's the sort that stands out, but he's accomplished at hiding in plain sight. He is calm, deliberate, and authoritative in his manner, provoking very specific reactions in those around him. As for what he's doing or thinking, he'll tell you if he wants you to know and, otherwise, you'll never know for sure. While generally domineering, he seems to have something of a compassionate streak.

Than's loyal companion, Bashirah helps guide the drow across the surface and also hunts for him. She is self- contained and spends more time away from him than with him. She isn't an attention seeker either and is adept at amusing herself.

Time seems to have made Candoleshio rougher around the edges, rather than smoothed  down. However, you are far more likely to snag on him than he is to snag on you. He rarely denies himself his pleasures, some of which are sadistic.

Like most leaf dragons, Austrealeus is even-tempered and calculated. On the small side as far as dragons go, especially males, he's survived on guile and has reached the three hundred year mark of formidability. In addition to shipping routes, it is his presence that has caused the trails through the Truent Mountains fall into disrepair.
