Eastown, Cornwilla’s home village. She is well-known there and not liked that much. For all she tries to make things better with her inventions, things usually turn out worse. Arton is the mayer, and far too old to be dealing with Cornwilla’s stuff.
I don’t know if I revealed this in the story, or maybe I just changed my mind afterwards, but Cornwilla is also adopted. I think I might have her as not knowing she was adopted. She was just left in the village one day and the mayor took her in. I think that Cornwilla does have some notion that she’s adopted just because there’s no mother figure.
No, Tenna is not a mother figure. Tenna is just the secretary. She might care for Cornwilla, but it’s not in a familial way. In a sense, Cornwilla sort of has been raised by a village with no one setting clear boundaries for her.
Looking back over my notes, I didn’t have that many characters from murt. There were only two momoth characters that really interacted with Cornwilla. The first is the province guide Reting.
Reting is a cheerful guy that plays a flute. I wanted someone upbeat and who doesn’t let a bad situation get the best of him.
He is sort of abused by Cornwilla, but they do become friends over the course of the story. Reting also counts as the guide for Murt. He’s like the previous guides. Later on, we see that Milly has no guide, or rather, Milly was sort of invited and given a way to go.
The other character is Kowee. She’s the reason everything is happening. Her rank is a Top-Level Preceptor. As you can imagine, there would be lower ranked preceptors. But basically, she’s among the smartest people in Murt, at least when it comes to magic and research.
Still, thought Kowee might have caused a problem, she’s somewhat reasonable about it. And being a reasonable person, she would have stopped it. That’s why I made a new problem in the last part for a final action scene. It also made Cornwilla the clear hero of the story this time.
There were a few other momoth characters such as the shrine caretakers. I enjoyed writing them, actually.
That’s all for characters. Next time, I’ll talk about the animals of Murt!
