CHARACTER LIST

(in order of appearance)

FROM THE KINGDOM OF DAYN


        The Troubadour

            A musician and storyteller, and our guide through this musical tale.


        Zoe

            A girl who wants merely to be a princess.  And to meet a dragon.

            And to be a rockstar.  Just like any other girl, given half a chance.


        Zoe’s Caretakers

            Alan and Lana have helped raise Zoe ever since her parents died.


        The King

            Zoe’s father.  Before he died, he and Zoe would dress up for tea parties,

            go on outdoor adventures, and build marvelous contraptions and machines.


        The Queen

            Zoe’s mother.  Before she died, she introduced Zoe to literature and art,

            and taught her science and history and mathematics.


        The Villagers

            Simple, hard-working peasants.  Not very educated, but loyal and strong.



FROM THE KINGDOM OF GWYN


        Prince Philip

            A boy with little experience but great ambitions.  Resolutely self-assured,

            as any boy his age would be, except for when it comes to dealing with girls.



FROM THE KINGDOM OF WARYN


        The Dragon

            The Dragon loves his job, which lately consists largely of wreaking havoc.


        The Witch

            Spurned her whole life for her looks, the Witch has risen to power as the

            Queen of Waryn.  Her ambition, however, spurs her to reach for more.
