Characters

of The Shadow War Saga

Every great story has great heroes and villains. However, every great hero will have a journey...and every great villain is not simply evil.

All the characters of The Shadow War Saga have gray areas. The heroes are flawed, and the villains are sympathetic. Keriya Nameless has grown up an outcast and yearns for acceptance, but before she can save the world, she has to figure out what exactly she's fighting for.

Many people help her as she grows into the person she was meant to be, and many try to stand in her way. You can learn about them here!
