(Fairy godmother sent on missions to worlds, including earth though her name was changed from Deamadrell).
Fairy Queen (Eileen’s cousin, called Roxannadrell, drell is royal name).
(Ancestor of Queen, Eileen and Witch. Started civil wars. Killed by dragon sent by Council. Gwendolyn set up Council system! Gwendolyn’s actions still have repercussions).
L’Evallier (head elf), Brankaresh (chief wizard) and Rodish (head dwarf), most important Council members. Rodish is Council leader. Thunderock (troll), Nimble (goblin), D’Dathsom (orc) are other named Council members. There are 22 on Council.
Chief Witch (related to Eileen and Queen).
Hanastrew (an earnest fairy trained by Eileen in specialist magic).

Derek Paige (the human Eileen sacrifices everything for).
Jennifer Paige, later Williams (Eileen’s hybrid child). To say she's not best pleased that her mother's unusual background has come to light is an understatement. Jennifer realises at once her mother's odd story has implications for her.
Paul Williams (Jennifer’s husband, detested by Eileen).
Greyfur, Podgy, Redsong and Captain are squirrel, pigeon, robin and blue tit enchanted to talk to Rose, Stanrock and Whespy. This experiment causes problems later for Jennifer. For a start it proves there are magical goings on at Brenebourne and Jennifer would've liked to have been able to deny it all. Pretend it doesn't exist and the problem goes away kind of scenario.
