William & Penrose Na'Melorra

The twins Na'Melorra were the source of much grief for Théo as children, stemming from a fierce rivalry between him and Penrose over Molly’s friendship. Their fights were frequent and often imbalanced, with Pen trumping Théo in age and size, but the tension faded over time after Molly moved away and Pen stopped growing.

Now 18, Will and Pen help their parents run their shop. The Na'Melorras are clothiers by trade, the knack for which William inherited the lion’s share, but Pen has a head for numbers and helps with the business side of things.

Due to the secluded nature of the valley, the latest trends in fashion always arrive months past their prime, so the family has had little luck doing business outside of Rivervale. Trade with Lakeside is very lucrative, however, as they can offer stylish clothes for less than it would cost to import in fabrics better suited to the valley’s climate. They also have a major client in Molly’s aunt, Dame Bellefleur, whose wardrobe is comprised almost entirely of bespoke garments made by William.

Will and Pen’s grandparents immigrated from a country that is almost as much jungle as it is desert. Their parents had an arranged marriage, but are fairly nontraditional themselves and don’t expect their children to do the same. While William prefers modern fashions, Pen dresses for comfort and prefers the loose, draping clothes of her grandparents’ homeland.

They own a tawny dwarf cat named Daisy.

Dame Vera Bellefleur

Dame Bellefleur is the older sister of Molly’s mother, Vivian Millbrooke. Like all Bellefleurs, the Dame has a natural talent for magic, and has harnessed that talent for her career. While her younger sister became an arcane apothecary, Vera took the unconventional (and lucrative) approach of employing alchemy to enhance perfumes and other high end toiletries.

Although she was born and raised in the cultured metropolis of Delta City, she currently lives in the small valley village where Molly & Théo grew up, and there are few in the town who understand why.

Rufus Laforge

In spite of his valley home’s bleak and gloomy atmosphere, Rufus is about as cheerful and good natured as he is barrel chested and broad shouldered. Since most skilled tradesmen leave the valley for greener pastures as soon as they’re of age, this hardy blacksmith is never short on work and takes pride in supplying the southern settlements with most of their tools and weapons.

As the only living parent, he’s taught Théo everything he can, but has no idea where his son’s natural affinity for mechanical tinkering came from.

Edited Rufus’ face to look a bit less like one of my friends #oops
