A Refresher from
Book One of Odriel’s Heirs


Yanaa: The magical energy used by the Heirs, magi, and other magical beings of Okarria. Typically thought to be gifted by Odriel or Idriel.

The Lost: Evil corpses reanimated by a necromancer’s dark yanaa.

Heirs: Guardians of Okarria blessed by Odriel with magical gifts to defeat Idriel and his army of the Lost. Their powers are typically inherited by their eldest children.

Dalteek: The mounts of the Heirs, graced with legendary stamina, winding antlers, and lion-like manes.

Dracour: With the sinuous four-legged body of a dragon, the scaly torso of a man, and a set of murderous horns, the Dracour are the fiercest warriors in the land. The Dracour helped to train Kaia as a girl.


Kaia Dashul: The Dragon Heir with the power of fire.

Klaus Thane: The Shadow Heir with the power of invisibility.

Odriel: The beneficent spirit guide of Okarria. Odriel guides souls from life to death and gifted the original Heirs with their powers.

Jago: An Heir raised as one of the Lost, and killed by Kaia.

Lord Conrad: A noble who (through his son) raised an undead army to (allegedly) try to defeat Idriel’s army of the dead. Killed by Kaia.

Mogens: A sadistic, bounty-hunting mercenary who killed Kaia and Klaus’ grandparents and was responsible for the death of Kaia’s father. Though Kaia killed Mogens, he is blessed by Idriel with an unnatural life as the undead. Obsessed with killing the Heirs.
