Celtia - Former personal assistant to Queen Emma of Deiga. Celtia has seen Queens come and go, and her only wish is that she not live to see another Queen of hers buried.

Christine - Jonathan's house maid. She was born and raised in Amber, interviewed by Katherine, and hired by Terrell. She can read and write in Thari.

Claudio - Consort of Queen Maeve of LeDorne, in fact, ruler of LeDorne. An ambitious businessman who is rapidly taking economic control of LeDorne, it is Claudio's intent to use his financial network to eventually control Mordentia and Baylesport...for starters.
Elliott - Head of House Feldane. Lord Elliott resides in the Feldane mandor house in the Eastern Marches and seldom has anything to do with the political situation in Amber, preferring to send a representative to the Noble Council.

Gillian - Wife of Aelric, former Arnok barmaid.
Helena - Head of House Redwyn. As it is only a minor house, Baroness Helena at present does not have a seat on the Noble Council. Her current goal is to secure such a position and to make her house a major house in Amber City.
Isabelle - Widow of Gérard Nathaniel, lady of House Redwyn. Isabelle is a kind woman, and was fiercely protective of her husband while he lived. Though Nathan was mayor of Amber City, in truth, all important decisions were sent to her.
Jane Elisabeth Rhodes - A Golden Circle noblewoman who married Caine and bore him two children: Meridian and Emma. She supposedly died giving birth to Emma, but was later recovered by Meridian. Other than that, nothing is known of her, save that Emma inherits her looks from her mother.
Jennifer of LeDorne - Niece to Queen Maeve, wife of Lord Faust. For the most part, Jennifer is much like any other noblewoman in the Golden Circle. She is well-mannered, educated, and strong-willed. She has been a part of the Court of Amber for roughly twelve years, and has gained a reputation for honesty and integrity. She is well-loved in the Court of Newcastle. (Trump)
Justin Smythe - Younger adopted brother of Robert Marcellus, still unmarried. He is approximately two years younger than Robert.
Kieran - Head of House Karm. Though the majority of House Karm lives in Corilaine, Duke Kieran has taken up quarters in Amber City and is a vocal presence on the Noble Council. With Rhiannon's ascension, House Karm became much more willing to associate with Amber and its royal family. Following her death, Kieran has taken to supporting the co-regents, but not necessarily the birthright of Crown Princess Lenore.
Laoric - Lord of House Thessala, Duke of Mordentia. As the hereditary ruler of Mordentia, Laoric was little affected by the Abyss War, though he is grateful for Amber's intervention in the surrounding territories. His biggest priority right now is the establishment of alternate trade routes so that he can break LeDorne's monopoly on his exports.
Lara - Wife of Robert Marcellus for five years. She and Robert are currently expecting their fourth child. She is a petite beauty with blonde hair and blue eyes, but she has no trouble keeping her husband in line. Like many of her family, she has a slight heart condition and her doctor has her on a special diet.
Maeve - Lady of House LeDorne, Queen of LeDorne. A figurehead controlled by her husband's relatives, Maeve is the only living descendent of Mishel LeDorne, who founded House LeDorne. Her husband, Claudio, has used his marriage to extend his power as a businessman, and is rapidly taking economic control over much of LeDorne.
Marta - Dressmaker in Amber City. For over forty years Marta oversaw the tailoring of most of the royal family, and to this day she still oversees the work. Though she is too old to do the work herself, as her hands are arthritic, her daughter Melanie follows her instructions carefully, and because of this, they have retained the patronage of the royal family.
Melanie - Daughter of Marta, a dressmaker in Amber City.
Morgana - Lady of House Cezare, ruler of Ghenesh. Morgana took over the governing of Ghenesh after the death of her husband Dmitri. Though she is only a member of House Cezare by marriage, the people of Ghenesh have accepted her rule with little complaint.
Nayda - Prime minister of Begma. Childhood acquaintance of Emma.
Renton - Personal servant to Seth. A werehound of Shaenan's creation, Renton's loyalty has always been unwavering. At present, Renton cares for Seth and lives with him in Amber City.
Rilga - Former wife of Oberon, mother of Caine, Gérard and Julian, grandmother of Emma, Meridian, Aelric, Robert Marcellus, Kaedric, etc. Since her return to Amber, Rilga seems to have focused her attention on Aelric, and is often seen in his company and that of his wife Gillian. When her role in Gillian's kidnapping was discovered, she was petrified by Faust using the Pattern. She is currently locked away in a cellar in the basement of Newcastle. (Trump)
Sebastian - Ruler of Corilaine, not recognized by any noble house. Lord Sebastian took over after Derrick's disappearance during the Abyss War and has governed Corilaine since. There is some rumor that Derrick still lives and that Sebastian is taking orders from him.
Thérese Smythe - Adoptive mother of Robert Marcellus. An herbalist and healer of note within the city.
Timeus - Baron of Sento, head of House Sento. An austere, older man who has survived since the time of the Patternfall War, in which he fought as a young man, Timeus is a careful and cautious man. Were it not for Amber's military aid, Sento would still be under the yoke of Chaosian domination, and for this he was very loyal to Queen Rhiannon. At the same time, he is distrustful of the royal family of Amber, for he knows how quickly power can change hands. With Rhiannon's death, he has taken to supporting Lenore's claim to the throne, and backs Meredith as regent. He is distrustful of the fact that Lenore is to be raised in House Sawall, however.
Vialle - Blind wife of Random, a Lady of Rebma, friend to Llewella and Moire. She served as advisor to Queen Branwen before Branwen's murder.
Vincent - Lord of Baylesport, Head of House Bayle. Lord Vincent is the son of Vinta Bayle, who died in childbirth towards the beginning of the Abyss War. There are rumors that he is the son of Prince Caine, who was his mother's lover prior to that War, but his appearance is such that few place much faith in the rumors, as he has blonde hair and brown eyes.
William - Infant son of King Nathaniel of Deiga and Emma of Amber, he will inherit the crown of Deiga when he comes of age.
