Nafi (early 20s) – An only child for most of her life, raised by her single mother, Nafi had a difficult time accepting her new stepfather (Ted) and stepbrother (Sawyer). As she slowly begins to let them in, Sawyer’s untimely death forces her to face her feelings and her past.

Mordo (ageless) – A gruesome, mute, corpse-like representation of Nafi’s grief. A companion that shadows her throughout her journey.

Paka (unknown) – A peculiar forest dwelling creature first introduced to Nafi through Sawyer, during a game of Dungeons & Dragons. Paka appears to Nafi after Sawyer’s death, imploring her to help save his forest home from the “Evil Man.”

Kari (early 50s) – Nafi’s loving mother. Life has not always been easy, but she has done her best to shelter Nafi from those difficulties, perhaps to a fault.

Ted (mid 50s) – Nafi’s stepfather, Sawyer’s father. He and Nafi don’t always see eye-to-eye; a situation exacerbated by his son’s death. Though he has a hard time expressing his feelings, he truly does care for Nafi and Kari.

Brian (mid 20s) – Though it was an accident, Brian’s involvement in Sawyer’s death makes him a villain in Nafi’s eyes. She unwittingly pursues a fictionalized version of Brian, the “Evil Man,” until she finally sees his equally shared grief.

Sawyer (early teens) – Nafi’s stepbrother. Kind-hearted, high-spirited, and geeky. His imaginative storytelling and sudden death are the catalysts for Nafi’s adventure.
