Lady Quella of House Goldstone, the Right Hand of the emperor’s daughter and the MC’s cousin.
The common folks call her the champion of the common, while the nobles think of her as nothing more than a gentle and naive little girl that is trying to fix something that doesn’t need fixing.
Quella uses her great wealth to fund massive charities across the city and build an orphanage for the large numbers of children on the streets with no place to call home.
Not only does she uses her massive funds for the betterment of the common, but she is also a vocal supporter of their right. A thought that gets an eye roll from most of the nobles. Yet, like-minded individuals are joining her cause.
She will like a supportive of a kind MC while standing against a cruel one.
Lady Farissa of House Astilaa: House Astilaa is one of the strongest houses in the northern regions of the empire, bannermen to House Makarov. Farissa is the younger sister of Count Ouwdel.
Farissa is a smart and cunning woman. Her fashion and massive parties are known throughout the empire. She rules her brother’s county while he spends most of his time at the brothels, making her the true power in the county. A countess with the title of a lady.
She is an extremely ambitious woman that looks to strengthen her position. Having her as a partner will mean having an intelligent and powerful woman by your side and having access to the berserkers and their unbreakable shield wall.
Can she even be trusted?
Lady Gossa of House Noorga, known as the Blood Queen of Noorga.
Gossa is an unstable, sadistic, and cruel woman, even by her house standards. She suffers from the Noogren madness that plagues her entire family.
She sees and hears the world differently from others.
Unlike her mad mother, Gossa is good at hiding her true self, but when her mind tells her to do something, she has to do it no matter what.
Nobody knows what she will be like as a partner, but having her support will mean having access to her dutchy and the Black Guard of her house.
Sultana Layla of House Morved: The sultan’s favorite child.
Layla is a strong-willed and free woman that likes to do what she wants. She hates anyone who tries to control her.
She likes riding horses and hunting, and also learned how to fight from a young age and prefers fighting using a spear.
She will be a supportive and strong partner that will stand with the MC no matter what happens.
Having her support will mean having access to the sultan’s massive resources and the empire’s formidable army, maybe even war elephants.
Lady Kela of House Stefield: Your friend and companion. She was sent to serve you in exchange for you to find her a good marriage offer and to secure the alliance between your grandfather and her house.
She can sometimes be a little bit controlling over her brother’s actions: Everything he does angers her.
As a fifth-born, most see no future for her but to marry into a minor nobility. But Kela always strives for perfection and will never rest until she achieves her goals.
King Vlad of the Kindom of Avridia.
Betrayed by his uncle, King Vlad is forced to run away from his kingdom with his mother and some forces loyal to him.
He crossed the empire border seeking the support of The Vorlen Empire to reclaim his throne.
Unfortunately for him, Emperor Karl is yet to grant him an audience, so Vlad sets his eyes on his heirs. He will do everything in his power to reclaim his throne, no matter what.
The Dark Lord
The Dark Lord’s apprentice.
Nothing is known about the spymaster’s origin or even his name.
He was a slave from the Far East before your grandmother bought him from a slaver and gave him to the Dark lord to train due to his skill in watching and hearing what he shouldn’t
The Emperor shall appoint him to the role after the death of the current spymaster.
Lord Feroy of House Noorga. The crown prince and Gossa’s older brother.
Like his family, the Noorgen plague haunts him every day. He’s in a constant battle with his other self, the other Feroy that wants to control him.
Yet Feroy still remains strong, but for how long? Which one of them will win in the end?
Lord Odoof House Stefield: Your friend and companion. He was sent to serve you and to secure the alliance between your grandfather and his house.
Odo wants to be your bodyguard in hopes of raising in status. Unlike his twin sister, Odo is chill and outgoing. He doesn’t care about what others think of him.
Prince Karif of House Morved: The sultan’s second child.
Advangerer, fighter, mercenary, and explorer, Karif had the most freedom among his siblings leading him to follow his dream of exploring the world.
From the Far East to the Deep North, Karif wants to experience and explore everything the world has to offer.

This is my MC Valerie and her wolf, Hati. She is more combat orriented (Im lying she got cheat mode on)
Another MC fresh out the oven! Name’s Isobel, she’s a sweet and playful girl. Doesn’t care about the throne because It’s too much of a bother (sorry Mother). She would totally go after Odo IF Catalina wouldn’t have to marry Feroy, so as things stand she’ll have to suck it up for her sister and let Alara have Odo.
