Cast

 

Major Characters:

 

 

Mary Walker

 

Mary Walker

 

Also known as: Snowflake, The Voidchild

Current status: “Passing through” Victoria

About: Mary Walker is the main protagonist of Voidchild. A mysterious young woman linked to a potentially catastrophic mystical entity. She finds herself caught up in the affairs of Victoria as she passes through. Before she knows it, she’s tangled up in the city’s many dark intrigues.

 

 

Abraham Bekker

 

Also known as: Abe

Current status: Agent of the Paranormal Investigation Unit

About: Abraham Bekker is an agent working for the P.I.U ( the Parnormal Investigation Unit). His poor presentation and hygiene belie a dedicated professional. He quickly takes an interest in Mary as they cross paths during a mutual investigation and offers her to come work with him.

 

 

Nelson Movian

 

Also known as: "The Silver Owl"

Current Status: Director of Galileo Mercantile

About: A mysterious businessman who runs the largest trading company in Victoria. His dealings are manifold and his true motive obfuscated. He is member of a clandestine organisation, hitherto only referred to as "The Order". But is he really one to settle into such a hierarchy? In any case, The Voidchild's recent appearance in Victoria seems to have caught his attention.

 


Amir

 

Also known as: No other known aliases

Current Status: Made contact with The Voidchild

About: Amir's origin is a mystery, but he has shown to possess the same or at least similar power to those of Mary. He also seems to know more about The Voidchild than most. While there are similarities between him and Mary, there are also differences to note (Amir's gleeful personality for one). Amir has so far displayed an accomodating disposition towards our heroine but his true intentions remain unknown.

 


Raheem
 

Also known as: Dad

Current Status: Deceased

About: Raheem found Mary as an infant in the woods outside of his hometown of Kynthale, Kenya, where he'd gone to end his own life after suffering a devastating loss. But finding Mary rekindled his love of life. Taking care of a child is a full-time job, but taking care of a little trouble magnet like Mary doubly so. And while it took some time and harsh lessons, Raheem eventually came to grow into the role of a father. Ultimately, making the sacrifice that any real parent worth their name would...

 

 

 

Other important characters (in order of appearance):

 

 

 

Catherine Milton

 



Also known as: Kat

Current Status: Deceased

About: A young mother and, since recently, a widow. Mary stumbled upon her shortly after arriving in Victoria, saving her life while getting dragged into one of the city's many intrigues. Catherine had built a life together with her late husband Roy who it turns out led a sinister double-life. But while Catherine may have appeared oblivious to all the shadowy dealings happening behind her back, she was more aware than anyone around her would have given her credit for.

 

 

Imad

 



Also known as: Uncle Imad

Current Status: Living with his wife Alile in their hometown of Kynthale, Kenya.

About: Best friend with Mary's father Raheem since childhood. Imad is a father of his own and supported Raheem as he raised Mary. He's also shown a curious inclination towards the supernatural (as a hobby mind you). Imad did the best he could to look after Mary after Raheem passed away and was instrumental in helping her move past the trauma of her father's death.

 

 

 

Supernatural beings and other antagonists (in order of appearance)

 

 

 

Swan

 

Also known as: No other known aliases

Current Status: Movian's First Lieutenant

About: After the death of his predecessor, Swan was promoted to Movian’s top lieutenant. A chance he jumped at. He has had several run-ins with Mary since she arrived in Victoria, each one having ended painfully for him and the cohorts he leads. Luckily for him, Swan and his fellow henchmen have displayed a surprising resistance to injury. Almost like a blessing of some sort...

 


Jack

 



Also known as: "What on earth is that!?"

Current Status: Disassembled

About: Whatever Jack was before he was turned into a inanimate skeletal monster pet by Movian is unclear. Whatever the case may be, Movian took to calling this creature ”Jack” and used him to handle troublesome opposition. Mary learned first-hand about Jack’s monstrous strength and resilience after a close encounter with the beast.

 


Maman Ama

 



Also known as: "The Spirit of Motherly Love"

Current Status: Unknown, last seen in underground Victoria

About: Maman Ama is the literal embodiment of the concept of motherly love. Her desires are singular; to care for unloved children. She's displayed use of a mysterious suggestive power that she refers to as ”The Mother’s Authority”. While single minded, this spirit is not unreasonable. Much to our heroine’s relief.

 

 

???

 



Also known as: ???

Current Status: ???

About: These mysterious beings suddenly appeared one fateful night in Mary’s hometown of Kynthale, tasked with ending her life. Who sent them and for what reason is currently unknown. Their destructive capabilities, however, are not. Their fiery magicks nearly reduced all of Kynthale to ash. That is, until they were stopped in their tracks by an even more destructive force…

 

 

The Spirit of The Void

 

The Spirit of The Void

Also known as: "The one that is everything where everything is nothing"

Current Status: Contained within The Void

About: Like others of its kin, The Spirit of The Void is single-minded in its desires. Its only yearning being the eradication of all existence. Fortunatly for us, the spirit is unable to leave The Void itself to carry out this wish. Unfortunately for us, it found a way to circumvent this hindrance by creating The Voidchild to serve as its harbinger of destruction. Outside of that, very little is known about this spirit. Not even its true form. If it even has one...

 

More to come!
