Squirt is a young orphan and pickpocket whom Khazarkhan has taken under his wing. He is teaching him kung fu, forgotten lore, and pervasive cynicism. Takuro has also taken an interest in him, and tries to teach him morality and righteousness to counteract Khazarkhan.

The Bloody Mouse
Takuro's previous incarnation, an ambitious and powerful priest.

Song of Greeting

A Sorceress whose name has been struck from the records of history

Resplendent Something-or-Other
One of the First Age Sidereals that lead the attack against the remains of the Circle Weave in the Bridal Manse, perishing in the resulting explosion caused by the lead daiklave turning on its mistress. His hungry ghost took up residence in a dark mirror of the manse deep underground, where he built up an army of spectres to take on the Solars if they ever returned. Both his mental faculties and his army, as well as his memory of his own name, proved woefully lacking.

Glides-with-Hope is a Lunar exalted who was Takuro's wife in his previous incarnation. She turns into a giant snake, but that didn't help her stop the Usurpation from killing Takuro's former incarnation, who, at the time, was having an affair with his Dragon-Blooded Lieutenant, Praedakesh Surit.

Praedakesh Surit
Earth-aspected lieutenant of Takuro's previous incarnation, and his lover who was responsible for locking up his tomb and leaving clues to help him find it in this life.

Breath of Frozen Tears

Ilse's lieutenant and second-in-command in battle.

"Just Natanya to my friends, Natanya, daughter of Share, back home, Natanya of Sootwind in the surrounding area, Natanya Trouble-Maker to my colleagues, and Natanya Shit-Stirrer behind my back." Perky young Chosen of Journeys with a penchant for exploring ruins and digging up ancient artifacts of power. Has a thing for Khazarkhan and no fashion sense.

In more detail: She's an obnoxiously perky young Chosen of Journeys whose hobbies include archaeology and dangerous sorcery. She can't stop poking at things that look interesting until they explode, and is possibly one of the least subtle Sidereals ever. She routinely fires off overkill charms and blows the budget for her operations, although she is fairly effective at cleaning up the sorts of messes others would rather not deal with. She's also a horrible twink, relying on "creative" interpretations of effects, such as strapping masts and sails to a warstrider so she can use Sail charms on it. She's afforded a fair amount of independence because no one wants to have her as an underling, and she never fills out the paperwork correctly. She's wholeheartedly Gold Faction, mostly because Solars are so cool (and flashy). She also has the worst fashion sense ever, routinely combining all sorts of clashing articles of clothing from different regions. She particularly likes excessively pointy shoes, and keeps an emergency pair on the shelf behind her untidy and seldom-visited desk.

Pensive Reflection
Easily flustered Chosen of Battles who hates field work, preferring to plan the course of wars from his desk in Yu-Shan. Has a thing for popping out of mirrors and other shiny surfaces.

Vengeful Thunder
Half-crazy self-aware warstrider that wants to bring back its master to wreak havoc on the Terrestrials who slew him. In an effort to keep it from summoning the Unconquered Sun to help, Khazarkhan swore to help it find its master, in the hopes that said master could talk it down. Unfortunately, its master turned out to be Lyta. Khazarkhan broke his Eclipse-sealed oath and disassembled Vengeful Thunder, which now resides on a shelf nursing one heck of a grievance.

Mal Desirus
A great a terrible warrior of the late First Age who wielded Vengeful Thunder.

God of Exaltation, he takes pride in his work and is one of the more honest gods in Yu-Shan. He is partial to Solars.

A fanatical warrior of the present age who bears Mal Desirus's Exaltation and wishes to exterminate or convert all Dragon-Blooded.

Sidereal acquaintance of Natanya's. He has had dealing with Lyta, in an attempt to control her.

Wind Stalker
A Twilight circlemate of Mal Desirus who was obsessed with building gigantic weapons, including Vengeful Thunder and the "Army-Cleaving Daiklave". His Exaltation now serves the Mask of Winters as an Abyssal.

Red-headed captain of the Grandfather's Pride, one of the fastest ships in the West (due to her good relations with air and water spirits).

Stinky Beak

Water-Aspected Immaculate who attacked the Circle and was captured, but later escaped employing Water Dragon trickery. She was the rebellious daughter of an important house who committed criminal acts bad enough to make her family foist her onto the Immaculate Order.

Earth-Aspected Immaculate who attacked the Circle and was captured. Devout scion of a major house who joined the order to work at making the world a better place.

Fire-Aspected Immaculate who attacked the Circle and was slain. Third son of a lesser line, he joined the order because there was not much in the way of a future for him elsewhere. He and Larad may have been breaking the vow of chastity together...
