Seth Zurec is the leader of Tribe Zurec and Lillian’s father. Since he took on the job no one wanted, he’s visibly stressed all the time, and often ignores his daughter. Now that capaemen are attacking again, he has even more to worry about, and all he wants is to keep his daughter and his tribe safe. However, that is going to get harder and harder as the series progresses.

Jamie the Outcast
A remarkably skilled woman who came from far away. She introduces herself by flying in on her tamed animal, an acera, and saving some hunters of Zurec. She takes on Lillian and Mary as pupils of sorts, and eventually grows attached to them. But in doing so her dark past may come to surface, something not even her brother knows. Something no one must ever know. She would do anything to protect that secret.

Albert the Outcast
A mysterious boy who flew in with his sister Jamie and saved the hunters from certain death. He’s very awkward and geeky, yet he bares a grisly scar on his left eye. Lillian and Mary always wonder where he got if from, but he doesn’t seem to want to talk about his past.
