If you have not read through the archive yet the  following information contains spoilers! (content updated as story progresses).


Kay_castThe Dreamer/”Kay” The Bone Doll
As a Bone doll she has spent centuries as a servant for fauni wizards and witches. She constantly struggles with the loss of her humanity, her hatred of all things magic, and general distrust of everyone around her. After being forced to “befriend” the fauni child, Trystan, Kay starts to wonder if their is more to her life than just dreaming of revenge (and mysterious blue strangers).
Her alter dream ego is a masked woman trying to search out any trace of her human past.

Trystan Wicker
The unfortunate daughter of the Wicker family. It is speculated that her undeveloped skills in magic are a result of a long time childhood illness which often leaves her weak and fatigued. This has cost her an apprenticeship and acceptance in the eyes of the very strict and formal Fauni society. Her greatest wish is to be a normal fauni child.

marriwen_Merrick_wicker_castMariwen and Merrick Wicker
Though often referred to as the “twins” they are in fact triplets (Trystan being the 3rd and mostly forgotten sibling). Ambitious, competitive, and academically inclined, they are leagues above their other classmates and have worked hard to gain reputation and notoriety within their own temple (difficult given the low status of their family name). A common strength among Fauni twins, their powers are at their best potential when they work together as a team. Their number one goal in life is to be the greatest at everything ever (and make sure everyone knows it!).


Lady Wicker
Trystan’s Mother. A descendant of the Bricken House and native citizen to White Wall City.  Many years ago there was quite a scandal when she left town only to return married to a mysterious man from the north. She now sequesters herself to her residence; rarely leaving. Talk around town is she can no longer endure the pressures of high society.


FatherWicker_Cast“Oldman” Wicker
Trystan’s loving yet overprotective Father. A master herbalists and Apothecary, he has spent years wandering the wilds and back roads collecting samples and recipes to further his art. A relative newcomer to White Wall City, he is looked upon by most residences as an eccentric hermit.


Horace Bricken
Trystan’s Uncle and Owner of the once respected Oribel’s tradeshop. He sometimes allows Trystan to “help” around his shop in order to not begrudge his Sister, Lady Wicker.


Blair Bricken
Trystan’s cousin. Pfffft…



Real name unknown. Bone doll servant to the last few generations of the Bricken Family and the unofficial tradeshop mascot. Its presence gives Horace and Blair the genuine creeps. It was banished for a time to the basement but after an incessant amount of wailing it was returned to the front of the shop where it now keeps a mostly silent watch over the main counter.
Most recently Phinny was handed down to Mariwen and Merrick to aide in their studies.


The Unmasked Dreamer/Perrane
A mysterious dream traveler who claims to be immortal and has a strange attraction to Kay. He serves Inquisitor to an unnamed wizard.


An astral being that takes the form of an owl. It appears in Kays dreams again and again eventually crossing over into real life as a ghost like presence. The dreamer is not quite sure why it follows her around but it has become something of a companion and protector.

    So. Just caught up an hour ago. I REALLY like that little bone doll/dreamer. I look forward to reading more and I only regret that this only comes out once a week.

  • Esmeralda Anistasia

    I just finished reading all that there is to read. I love the story and the art, and I am DEFINITELY coming back to read more. I NEED MORE.

  • Ebs

    Fascinating story! My husband and I look forwards to your work! Thanks for sharing your creation.

    The Owl spirit shoulc be named Plato… Like Disney’s Sword in the Stone Aristotle.

    • Guesticus

      Ooo yes, that would be a grand name (and could work even if the Owl turns out to be female ;) )

  • Ford

    I JUST discovered you, and I immediately love you. Congratulations on the new family member; I very selfishly hope that the pressures and extra time required of a sprout won’t rob me of my infatuation with your story, and art. Please keep it coming so I can see how this all ends, and how your next story begins. You’re magically awesome.

    1 question: is phinny a male or female? I can’t tell

  • Answerer

    I believe Phinny is Male, the shape of the eyes and head make me think so, but I have no idea.

    • Lyra

      I realize am a couple of months late to the question but I was under the impression that Phinny was female because of the the Dreamer calling it a witch and using cow’ as an insult, something i have herd only directed at women.

          Thanks for your response!
          …Okay now i have to ask, can you say what species Phinny is? from the description of bone dolls being smaller versions of their former selves it does not sound like she was all fauni to begin with.

          • Phinny

            Phinny isss not horrible dumb fauni person!

  • Luna Bass

    This is an awesome story! I was hooked from the first page! But it’s such a shame that this only updates a page at a time…I feel as though it would be more fulfilling if it updated once a month, with four pages.

      Hello there,
      I know some readers check in every few weeks to get a bulk of updates. If you need a reminder to come back than id recommend a comic reader like “Comic Rocket” or Ink Outbreak”.
