Alumni of the Blackyard
The PCs were not the only ones to grow up under Grandmother Black's watchful eye. There were others who were special, as well, filled with potential.
- Renal Davis, a heroic mortal, is an ambitious and talented man, despite his affable and easy-going exterior. Having impressed his superiors in the Guild, he has recently been posted in Celeren to supervise Guild operations in the V'neef satrapy of Daku.
- Kamini, the Lady Between, a Moonshadow Caste Abyssal is a beautiful woman, vulnerable and aristocratic by turns. She is the reincarnation of White Turns Black, of the First Fifty, and while her friends do not yet understand the details of her tragedy, they do know that she is in need of their help. She serves the Deathlord, Walker in Shadows.
- Jasper and Amber, heroic mortals, are twin brother and sister who have opened a small thaumaturgical shop in the Nightwatch District of Nexus. Though their magic is of a mortal sort, they are particularly skilled practitioners of their arts. They cultivate a somewhat alien, mystical image, and are eerily affectionate of each other. Recent events have implied that the twins might be something significantly more, or less, than purely mortal.
- Peili, daughter of Shalriya, Daimyo of Masks, is a God-Blooded courtesan to the elite of Nexus. Supernaturally beautiful, she has a knack for reflecting precisely what is desired of her.
- Manu, a Full-Moon Lunar, was a refugee from the Hundred Kingdoms. Filled with a boisterous, indefatigable cheer, he is the only one of the Blackyard gang to accompany the PCs on their adventures. The PCs do not yet know that he is the deposed prince of one of the Hundred Kingdoms, though he has admitted that he remembers that, in the First Age, he was the brother of Raksi, the Queen of Fangs.
- Ysa Auru, a heroic mortal, is a daughter of the Marukani Horse Kingdoms. Wild and strong, Ysa is a smiling, willful young woman with an eye for what she wants and the courage to take it. She has recently learned that, in the inheritance traditions of her people, she is to be chief of one of the horse tribes. At present, she is not particularly pleased with this responsibility, though she has accepted it.
- Nellens Aphat (deceased), a Patrician of the Realm, was shocked and confused when he failed to Exalt. Ever arrogant, though never one of the Blackyard's elite, Aphat set himself against the PCs and their friends when, after Grandmother Black's death, he attempted to seize control of the land under Nellens' auspices. In a tragic accident related to the conflict, Aphat was killed. It remains to be seen what consequence this will have with regards to Nellens and our heroes.
- Crow the Boy (Published WW material), an Eclipse Caste Solar, did not quite grow up in the Blackyard but was a frequent visitor. Sneaking in across rooftops and through gaps in the fence, she formed a close bond with the children of the Blackyard. They are as close to a family as she has, albeit in a different way from the child gang she now runs. After recent events, Crow has become custodian of the Manse under the Blackyard called the Garden of Promise.
