It will not be cross-listed in the other pages.
Adam - Son of Prince Brand and Queen Emma of Amber. When the Abyss War began, Adam created a neutral territory from his Shadow Avignon. It was there that Florimel and many others found sanctuary during the war. Although he is King of Avignon, he does not choose to rule his peers, and is therefore respected by those who dwell in Avignon.
Aelric - Check the players page.
Brand - Check the players page.
Caine - Recovered by his daughter Emma, Caine served as advisor to Queen Rhiannon until a few short weeks prior to her death. At that time, he disappeared and has not been heard from since. Some of the family know the truth; that he was injured and is currently recuperating in Shadow.
Celia of Sawall - Lost in Shadow her whole life, the orphan daughter of Clitus Sawall was told only enough to survive and remain hidden. Now that she is at last among family, Celia must reconcile her fear of being used with her longing for a place she can discover the truth of her heritage. Along with the rest of House Sawall, she has taken up residence in Amber City.
Celia-Marie Marcellus - Daughter of Robert Marcellus. Named after his birth mother, she's a beautiful little girl, a veritable reflection of her mother, with pale blonde hair and soft blue eyes. She has her father wrapped absolutely around her finger. Celia-Marie recently had the misfortune to run across a book of magic, and successfully cast a spell which led her to meet Seth, and granted her the ability to see ghosts, a power that continues to torment her.
Cerridwen - Queen of Tir-na Nog'th, youngest daughter of Queen Emma and Gawain of Amber. Cerridwen was always a mystic, and in the course of her magical research she recovered the city of Tir-na Nog'th and became its queen. An enigmatic and unfriendly woman, she incurred the wrath of Katrina who wounded her terribly. Katrina's return and acceptance in Amber, following right on the heels of Cerridwen's being passed over for the throne, left her rather embittered toward those who rule in Amber. Her unsuccessful attempt to seek revenge resulted in her being regressed to her childhood again, her body changed and her memories of her later years erased. Is this a second chance for her? That remains to be seen. (Trump)
Derrick - Son of Prince Delwin of Amber and Sarah Chanicut. For a time, Derrick cooperated with the enemies of Amber, in order to revenge himself upon Sand. After her death, he was not heard from again. He is believed to have retired to his home Shadow of Corilaine, though a few have seen him in passing in Amber City.
Emily - Daughter of Gawain and Katrina, Emily served as the nanny to Prince Gérard Nathaniel and Princesses Rhiannon, Branwen and Cerridwen, and is the reason Gérard Nathaniel has functional intelligence. Over the course of many years, she slowly and carefully opened pathways in his mind that enabled him to function like a normal, if dim, person. After the conclusion of the Abyss War, she served as co-regent with Brand and Jacob. Currently she still oversees security within Newcastle, serving as second-in-command to Katrina. She also spends a great deal of time with Meredith, as the two have become lovers, though this is not widely known. (Trump)
Faust - Youngest son of Princess Fiona of Amber and Mandor Sawall. Faust remained in Amber following the Abyss War and became the official Historian of Amber. His connection to Fiona also caused him to be viewed as a holy man by those who live in Amber City, and he reluctantly took the title of High Priest of the Unicorn. After Rhiannon's death, he also took on the job of co-Regent for Lenore, along with his sister Meredith. Now newly married to a young noblewoman named Jennifer of LeDorne, Faust appears eager to leave his old duties behind and begin a new life with her. (Trump)
Fiona - Former Avatar of the Pattern. By finishing the repair of the Pattern, begun by Oberon and continued by Meredith, Fiona became the living embodiment of the Pattern...to many, but a myth...a woman who became a goddess. As she replaced Meredith, she too was eventually replaced by Blethius, who forever forbade her access to the power of the Pattern again. She currently resides in House Sawall, by virtue of her marriage to Mandor.
Gawain [ Sean Frost ] - Son of Princess Llewella of Amber and Rebma, President of Arcana, Gawain returned after the Abyss war to find that one of his daughters had assumed the throne of Rebma, and that all those he cared for in Rebma had long passed on. Leaving Amber behind and taking control of the Realms of Magic, he found for himself new goals and new challenges. Following the death of his daughter Branwen, he returned to briefly assume control of the Rebman throne, until its population was absorbed by Thule. Accused by Faust of the murders of Bleys and King Nathaniel of Deiga, Gawain countered that the murder of Bleys was on Emma's orders, and so he could not be held accountable. And since Nathaniel had already renounced his title as King, he could no longer be considered a peer of Gawain (who was still considered King of Rebma), and what he chose to do with the man who stole his wife was his own business. Acknowledging that his logic was impeccable, but that his actions were still unpardonable, Faust declared that it would be in the best interest of Gawain's own physical well-being that he never return to Amber. So far, Gawain has obeyed. (Trump)
Jacob - Check the players page.
Julian - Lord of Arden. Following the conclusion of the Abyss War, Arden was separated from Amber. When the connection was re-established, Julian learned that Brand had been restored and ruled in Amber. Only after Brand's death did Julian seek to re-establish ties with Amber. It is said that Julian has married and has three sons. Only one of these, Kaedric, is known to Amber.
Kaedric - Youngest son of Julian. Nothing else is known of him at present.
Katrina [ Jarrod Van Kirk ] - Granddaughter of Prince Benedict and daughter of Prince Bleys of Amber, Commander of the armies of Amber. Few in Amber have displayed a history more rife with treachery than Katrina Barimen, and yet when she came close to achieving her greatest dream, the destruction of her cousin Shaenan, she instead chose to obey the orders of Amber and recall her troops. She resides in Newcastle now, and if her failure to eliminate the Emperor of Chaos troubles her, it certainly doesn't show in her bemused smile. (Trump)
Linnea of Helgram - A young woman of House Helgram who earned the ire of her Duchess and of the Abyssal Lord Edgar, Linnea sought temporary asylum with House Sawall. Now that Edgar is dead, and Dara maimed, it remains to be seen whether she will extend her stay in Amber. She is friend to Lord Merlin. (Trump)
Lylesberg - Prince, heir apparent to the Kashfan throne, son of Jasra and Prince Brand of Amber, supposedly slain by Katrina at the Primal Pattern. Lylesberg was 'rescued' by Lucier, and later recovered by Adam. He resides in Avignon with his brother.
Marcus Marcellus - Youngest son of Robert Marcellus. A delicate boy, taking more after his mother. Marcus has light blonde hair and pale blue eyes with an almost milky appearance to them. He was born blind due to problems during delivery. After continual migraine headaches began to endanger the boy's health, Robert Marcellus took him to see the doctors at Cabra, who revealed that his the headaches were being caused by his vision returning. They suspected the boy of having a potential for shapeshifting, but this was proven incorrect. Something from his father's side of the family had given him an accelerated healing factor...
Meredith [ Wendi Strang-Frost ] - The daughter of Princess Fiona of Amber and Mandor Sawall emerged from madness and misery with her head unbowed; she is stronger than any suspected, but is she needed? With her brother Faust grown to adulthood and Fiona beyond her reach, Meredith found herself wondering about her place in Amber. And though love has given her some motivation in life, the crippling injuries she once received have taught her a painful lesson in caution. It is these lessons which have made her an effective ruler, now that she has assumed the role of Regent of Amber. (Trump)
Meridian S.J. Walker - Son of Prince Caine of Amber, brother to Queen Emma. Meridian stayed for a time in Amber, but found life there quite unsatisfying. His sister's ambitions and the petty rivalries of his family impressed him not at all, and so he returned to his home Shadow Mellisondra, vowing to have nothing more to do with his wretched family. Unfortunately for him, this did not protect him. A few individuals have learned the fate that he suffered at Cerridwen's hands, becoming a ghost that haunts Arcana. Even now he strives to regain his life.
Merlin - Son of Prince Corwin and Dara Helgram Sawall, twin brother to Emperor Shaenan of Chaos, Merlin was raised in Chaos, and formally adopted into House Sawall. Merlin eventually came into conflict with his mother and fled into Shadow, where Dara eventually found him and the two fought. When Fiona turned him over to Emma, Merlin's tongue had been cut out with Greyswandir, and his beloved Gilva had been slain. After the conclusion of the Abyss War and the beginning of the Restoration, Merlin left for Begma where he lived in seclusion until moving to Amber City to become a part of the new House Sawall. There are those who wonder what his involvement may have been in the recent maiming of his mother, wherein her tongue was removed by an invisible garrote...
Michael Marcellus - Oldest son of Robert Marcellus. He takes after his father in appearance, with dark hair and eyes, but certainly not in demeanor. Michael is a quiet and serious boy.
Miranda Sawall - Check the players page.
Mirelle - Youngest daughter of Oberon by Paulette. Mirelle was believed to have died on the Pattern long before Patternfall and was known only to Random. It was later revealed that Mirelle was, in fact, alive and had allied herself with the Sufferers' Guild. She was captured by Benedict, Katrina and Sand, and turned to stone. Weeks later, another Mirelle returned, one who lacked the other Mirelle's insanity, and she took up residence in Amber as a physician. She was later secretly killed and replaced by a third clone of Mirelle, one who shared the original's insanity. It is this Mirelle who resided with Gawain in Arcana for a time, hatching plots with him while occasionally visiting her "friends" in Amber. When her involvement in the death of King Nathaniel of Deiga was discovered, she was petrified by Faust using the Pattern. She is currently locked away in a cellar in the basement of Newcastle. (Trump)
Random - The youngest son of Oberon. Random lived in Rebma with his wife Vialle, where the two of them served as advisors to Queen Branwen until her untimely death. When the population of Rebma was absorbed by Thule, they fled and escaped the devastation. Their current whereabouts are unknown. Random sent a letter to Meredith and Faust explaining that they were okay, but would rather keep hidden from the enemies of Amber.
Robert Marcellus - Check the players page.
Selena of Sawall - Duplicate of Melanie Chanicut created by the Reflective Fan, she shares all of Melanie's memories up until the point of her creation. Rather than attempt to kill each other, the two decided to occupy opposite poles of reality, both to avoid confusion and the possibility of interfering with each other. Since both could not continue using the name of Melanie, the duplicate took the name of Selena, after their mother. She has recently moved to Amber where she petitioned for entrance to House Sawall. (Trump)
Seth - Check the players page.
Thule - The illegitimate son of Queen Branwen of Rebma, and the spitting image of Gawain in both looks and temperament, he was initially known to none but Cerridwen and Gawain. After killing his mother while disguised as Gawain, in an unsuccessful attempt to frame his grandfather for the murder, he recovered some of the wasps left behind by Wesker and reanimated them. They attacked him and infected him, but unfortunately, his psyche was greater than Wesker's, so he took over the resultant body...and eventually all of Rebma. He was last seen near Arcana, trying to make life difficult for Gawain.
William - Infant son of Emma and Nathaniel, heir to the throne of Deiga.
