Running from the bitterness of barely remembered nostalgia for the old ways, whatever those were, Fero cloaks himself in new wilderness of his land, wandering and learning.

Hella Varal is a human fighter from the magicless island of Ordena, the land spared from the Erasure, or so they say. She grew up with simple means but her role as a hired hand and conveyor lead her to gain respect and the attention of the government of Ordena, the reason for her frequent visits to Velas. Armed with a beautiful, mysterious sword, a lack of patience, and wariness of her people, Hella is a useful but unpredictable companion.
Lem King is an orc bard, born and raised in The New Archives, a vast orc city carved into the side of a mountain. The archivists, and Lem, prize collection and categorization of histories and objects and whistled songs; the Archives resemble a warehouse or museum more than a city. Recent events, however, have led Lem to flee the archives, clutching an old violin, and he's arrived in Velas looking for adventure and excitement and (perhaps) somewhere to hide.
Throndir, the Elfish Ranger, hails from the secluded settlement of Auniq deep within the Mark of Erasure. After seeing something he was never meant to, Throndir fled the only home he had ever known and began to rebuild his life in Velas. Alongside his loyal dog, Kodiak, Throndir’s sharpened survival skills has earned him a spot on the team, but his naïve nature and clouded past leave more questions than answers about what’s in it for him.
Aria Joie is a pop idol turned smuggler who started her career on The People's JoyPark Planet Presented by EarthHome Entertainment, a planet-wide amusement park dedicated to the memory of Earth and the celebration of OriCon. After years of performing propaganda with her rigger back up dancer, The Regent's Brilliance, Aria set her sights beyond JoyPark and started touring across the Golden Branch. Seeing more of galaxy lead to a different understanding of it, leading to a shift in music style then a loss of corporate backing and the need for a new way to make ends meet. Aria still performs but doesn't quite fill stadiums anymore, and that's fine--her charm and Brilliance's might are better off serving The Chime.

AuDy (short for Automated Dynamics) is a sentient robot originally programmed to land and park vehicles in parking garages designed to hold thousands. AuDy doesn't know or understand how they gained sentience but as soon as it happened, they left their job as a valet and their link to any network behind for good. AuDy now pilots The Kingdom Come which might seem similar to being a valet but it's amazing what a difference feeling the engine's resistance as you grip the controls with your own triple-jointed pressure sensors makes.
