Set in Amber: Example characters with comments

Connor, shape-changer and ranger

Connor was descended from the first people to be touched by the Jaguar God, and his mother had come to Arden generations after that event, so the tales were distorted.

Alean, magical minstrel

Alean held a secret in his bloodline that made it politically inexpedient to kill him. The King of Amber feared what his family knew.
