Avvu’s father or "Gaga".
Avvu’s middle-gendered parent, zer kæther or "Lala".
In this yak town, there are many grandmas and many grandpas but there is only one Grandma and Grandpa.
The Lor'Avvu epic tale has had a wide variety of different audiences. The Earth children are Grandma and Grandpa's for their telling of it.
The Fantoosh Tulrat is a magical curmudgeon of testosterone, puppeted by unknown powers and representative of its Kaian-native species, Tulratkind, which is made of sentient rabbit- turtle- troll-like beings with their own culture, language and history. Though the claims emitted from it give a one-sided view of Kaian, its ostensible insight into Lor'Avvu's time keeps the Earth children engaged.
It is said that just by being present, one can radically change a social situation. Putting this to the test are the various eggs of Kaian — not quite characters, but containing sentient beings with individual character, as potential as it may be.
Controlled by a similar mysterious force as the Fantoosh Tulrat, the Squidy Moppet also symbolizes its own sentient culture on Kaian. At least, for the Earth children, this is all they know of that race, the Shuvar, squid-like beings being the dominant lifeform of Kaian's vast oceans (salt water covering nearly nine of ten parts of the planet's surface). The Shuvarkind are characterized by a haughtiness and assumptive character that upsets the Tulrats. The Squidy Moppet and the Fantoosh Tulrat are together an amalgam of their charges' rivalry on Kaian, but a representative of just how widely the story of Lor'Avvu touched all forms of life in their world.
General spirit beings of Kaian. To go into them and all of their roles would take a grimoire of vast proportions. Suffice to say some are good, some are bad and some are neither, depending on whom you ask. Each of them plays a role in Kaian's secret physiognomy, some more important to her than others.
Chama's mother. Since Avvu is close friends with Chama, ze is somewhat familiar with Becka.
One of the milder pests of the spirit world, Wreods are not as powerful as one would imagine a vampiric entity to be, nor are they quite as intelligent as their banter may imply. Powered seemingly by the insults and irritation they communicate by, Wreods may be either magically composed of the trashed thoughts of a living sentient, or embody the surprisingly acid wit of an otherwise ineffectual one.
The Sisterhood of the Fenzarthol consider themselves adoptive daughters of a Goddess who can only be referred to by the inaccurate name Fenzara. If She is referred to by true name, the person who speaks the name will die. The name is kept a closely guarded secret, and carefully coded fragments of it constitute the Sisterhood’s immensely powerful spell book. There is a warrior class of the Sisterhood that goes by a different name.
Sub-Deities of Kaian's Gods. Distinguished by the "œ" character as a reminder of the hierarchy. Their bosses, the Gods of Kaian are a bit like a council of archetypical mostly genderless figures collectively describing the balance of moods and personalities of their planethead, which are also representatives from the Great Council of the Cosmos. They are as dangerous as the very works of nature herself, but perhaps just as forced by circumstance as any other sentient life. Their Sub-Deities are the Gœd powers that manifest on Kaian to do their mystical work. (See the introductory animation for Chapter 1)
Infamous President of Pærth City and vice commander of its army.
Mysterious beings of Trurpland, the islands that divide and stitch together the Western East and the Eastern West — considered "the back of the planet".
A kind of wrath version of a zombie — the lemoform shade restlessly wanders the lands to which it is bound, seeking and stealing away one's thoughts. Due to the emotionally disturbing effects of encountering them, they are best avoided, particularly if one harbors any secrets one would like to keep secret.
The most powerful woman in Pærth City, Doctor Lund serves as active director of intelligence for military application.
A slightly twisted, freethinking slave from Ondo.
Faerie beings with an extra close relationship to the elements, telling their history of Lor'Avvu through props, gadgets and, perhaps, just a few mystical powers.
These vaguely crystalline beings appear to be from a parallel world or system that has growing interactivity with the world of Kaian.
An eccentric artist friend of the family.
Serious and respected "take charge" Anarchist. Being controversial is his comfort zone.
The AllGods are a mysterious benevolent force above the Gods of Kaian, who must somehow determine Kaian's role in the universe
The Gods are determiners of the fate of the great system of Kaian and surrounding bodies.
