A Fragile Immortality
A listing of the secondary characters of the tale, but without the support whether aligned or opposed to the protagonists of the tale, the story is nothing.
Temporary Note: I’m going to cross list characters here, with links over to the NPC tracker due to the headache of the tags not working across fields.

However, his criminal contacts have given the Court a wealth of shadowy places to run and hide when the “heat” comes down.|
|Francis Nichols||Francis is more at home with his trees of the park, then among the people and is rarely seen. Occasionally, he informs the Freehold of stuff coming from the woods.|

|Simon the Hermit||A fairest who lives in the edges of the hedge exclusively, he has some power, some understanding of that area in-between if you can find his lucidity.|
