Jake is six feet tall with dark-brown hair and deep-brown eyes. In book one, he's sixteen years old, but you wouldn't believe it if you met him!
Jake is more than skilled with a sword. Coming from a farm near Randrothal, he's a bit of an anomaly with how handy he is in a fight. He puts his talents to good use protecting his brother and fighting for his friends.
Louie is five foot six and growing. At the start of the Steel and Magic series, he's fourteen years old, but turns fifteen by the end of the second book.
Louie has haystack, dirty-blond hair that frequently stands on end with blue magic running through it. His green eyes are as mischievous as they come; aside from Troy's perhaps. Not to mention, he's quite the adept; a master with his elemental magic.
Cassie of Maldra
Cassie has long, wavy brown hair, blue eyes, and a nboble's stubborn chin. Now sixteen years old, she's a lady of Maldra; but she doesn't let that hold her back.
Cassie is handy with a sword, having trained with her brother and his friends from a young age. To avoid spoilers, you'll have to read until the end of book one to discover what other skills this passionate lady has!
Paul of Maldra
Paul's a male version of his sister, Cassie, with thick, wavy, umber hair and blue eyes. However, he's six foot two and is quite the nineteen-year-old protege. Everyone in Maldra and the surrounding areas knows that Paul can win in a one-on-one fight. Every time.
What's more; Paul has magic. He's a powerful adept, having been protected from the necrom long enough to learn how to defend himself and those he loves.
Louie's trouble-maker status has got nothing on Troy's. If this tall, six-foot-four, lanky blond man isn't laughing, then something must be very wrong.
Troy and Shane are Paul's best friends. Troy is as esteemed as a commoner could be in Maldra's court. The only things stopping him from being the best swordsman in Southern Elabrium are his attention span and temper.
Shane of Hadlen
Standing at six feet with black hair and hazel eyes, Shane is the steady one of the lot. Having been raised the heir of fief Hadlen, he's used to ignoring taunts and gossip.
Shane catlike grace and patience complement everything he does from swordplay to relationships. He and Troy are Paul's best mates, having befriended the lord when he was young.

A steel wrist cuff of such magnificence that. The patterns cast into the metal are intricate, weaving above and below decorative knots and twists. Two ruby’s blaze in the light. The image of a serpent head rises from the tangled design, with the rubies in the place of eyes.
It’s a small glass orb, much like a marble, that fills with warm, glowing fire when there are spirits around.
