Guide to the
W&W Mailing List
Many of the mailing list members (or "listians") have created their own
characters to inhabit the world of Wizards and Warriors. Sometimes, the
list members write their messages and speak in chats as if they were the
characters. Other times, they simply use the characters in fanfiction stories.
These new characters range from the dramatic to the downright silly, but all are
Below is a list that describes many of the various listian-created
characters. If you'd like to learn more about some of these characters, contact
the listian responsible for the creation of the character in question. The
appropriate listian will be listed in the character's entry.
Always ask permission before using someone else's character in a story.
(Characters are in alphabetical order based on first name.)
Queen Anna Winslow de Lio (Anna
M.C.) - the owner/manager of the Wild Rose Tavern, and also queen of a
magical extra-dimensional realm. Anna gained her title after marrying the
dashing (but short) King Antoine de Lio. Though Anna never dreamed that she'd
marry a cat who was transformed into a human, she's found Antoine to be a good
husband. Despite becoming royalty, Anna still finds time to run the tavern and
is still the friendly, well-liked woman she's always been. Anna is a rarity in
that she is the only known Winslow sister that can't cook.
King Antoine de Lio (Mo TCO)
- A cat that was transformed into a human by the mysterious magic-user, Mo.
Antoine now rules as king of Mo's otherworldly realm. An expert fencer and
master of social graces, Antoine makes quite a grand impression on people,
despite his rather short stature.
Callisto Blackpool (Galen
Blackpool) - it turns out that Xena's arch enemy is the illegitimate
daughter of Saris Blackpool. Years ago, Saris visited the village of Cirra where
Callisto's mother lived. When he left, he was unaware she was pregnant. When
Callisto was still a girl, a band of marauders led by Xena burned Cirra to the
ground (against Xena's orders, it should be pointed out), killing the only
family Callisto knew and destroying her sanity. Callisto has made one fixation
after another the focus of her life. First it was vengeance against Xena, then
when she found that to be unsatisfying she became fixated on self-destruction.
Upon learning the truth about her heritage, Callisto's latest fixation is on her
siblings. She pictures them as her loving family, a replacement for what she
lost years ago. Since she hasn't gone on any homicidal rampages since 'getting
her family back' - nobody seems eager to point out that the Blackpools are not
the ideal family that she believes them to be.
Commander Coo (Galen Blackpool)
- a militant pigeon with a revolutionary spirit. Coo founded and organized the
Pigeon Liberation Front (PLF) to protect the welfare of pigeons across Aperans.
His motivation to found such an organization was due to a number of trained
carrier pigeons meeting their demise at the hands of various individuals. Coo
personally organized the "air strike" against Dirk Blackpool (unfortunatey
hitting Geoffrey Blackpool instead). Still, the incident did demonstrate the
effectiveness of the PLF's air force. No one who wittnessed the attack has been
able to forget the terrifying cries (well, coos) of "Death from above!" Nor can
anyone forget the stench of the pigeons' organic bombardment.
Ebbe Liu (Galen Blackpool)
- a master martial artist and former bounty hunter. He eventually grew sickened
by the violence of his life and turned away from combat to become a fisherman.
Ebbe first met Galen Blackpool and Miko in his homeland years ago. He was
instantly drawn to Miko, but knew she was in love with Galen. Recently, he came
to Aperans after learning Miko's life was in danger. After helping her avoid a
tragic end, Ebbe decided to stay in Aperans. He now acts as one of Galen
Blackpool's most trusted advisors. Now that Miko has resolved her feelings for
Galen, she and Ebbe have started to grow closer.
Gabrielle (Ash) - the
heroic bard. Gabrielle is Xena's best friend and valiant ally. Gabrielle's poems
and stories have become widely read throughout Aperans, and she has many devoted
Prince Galen Blackpool (Galen
Blackpool) - the youngest Blackpool. Galen ran away from home when he
was 12, unhappy with his harsh father and eldest brother. Determined to prove
himself as a great warrior, he ended up in the far east where he became a master
swordsman and martial artist. Recently he returned to Aperans with his faithful
servant, Miko. Galen is becoming known as the 'white sheep' of the Blackpool
family, though he still is mistrusted by some because of his name. He and Xena
have a grudging respect for each other - though most would not mistake them for
friends or even cordial acquaintances. He has managed become good friends with
Xena's sidekick Gabrielle. Galen has claimed his own Karteian province,
Thornwood, and rules there from Castle Bryer.
Ian (Galen Blackpool) - a
loyal servant of Prince Galen. Ian is a native of Thornwood and takes great
pride in serving his province's new ruler. Naturally very intelligent, Ian
nontheless feels he is not taken seriously by many due to his youhtful
appearance. Though of average height, he appears to most to be several years
younger than his actual age of 20 summers.
Kiri Winslow (Kiri)-
the co-owner/co-manager of the Wild Rose Tavern. Kiri has always been a wizard
in the kitchen, but recently she became a real magic user. Off on an adventure
that involved Mo, Kiri gained the ability to cast spells. She is now a
wizardling, and in training to develop her power fully. Kiri has long had her
eye on Geoffrey Blackpool, but whether they can form a lasting relationship has
yet to be seen.
Miko (Galen Blackpool) -
a highly skilled ninja. Miko came to Aperans in the service of Galen Blackpool.
While always an outstanding servant and good companion, Miko kept secret the
fact that she was in love with Galen. Eventually matters between them got to the
point that Miko confessed her feelings. Though they did not become involved
romantically, Miko remains Galen's closest friend. She currently acts as one of
Galen's most trusted advisors, as does her good friend, Ebbe Liu.
Lady Mo Blackpool (Mo TCO)
- the eldest child of Saris, Mo's birth was illegitimate. Her mother was
apparently some sort of sorceress or magical being from another dimension. While
Mo never had any claim on her father's throne, he did raise her to be a cruel
and evil tyrant. She was feared in her youth when she was known as the marauding
Black Unicorn. She also proved adept at sorcery and was tutored in the art by
Vector. What is known is that she left her home when her brother Dirk was 10
years old. When she was next seen in Aperans, Mo was the ruler of an
extra-dimensional kingdom. She has since given up her rulership of this magical
place, but continues to reside there. Mo is truly an enigma and her actions are
often confusing. Whether she is just insane or working on some hidden plan is a
Countess Ristil MacCathail (Ristil) - a Karteian noblewoman, Ristil
was a childhood playmate of the Blackpool princes. When she got older, Ristil
went off to sea to seek adventure. She loved being a sailor, but she had to
return to rule her county upon the death of her father and brother. While she
has no hostility toward the southern kingdoms, she takes her oath to Karteia
very seriously. Her main motivation is to serve and protect the people of her
Princess Tamara Tronin (Tamara)
- the younger sister of King Alexander, Tamara was shipped off to boarding
school when her brother took the throne. A spirited young woman, she found
school to be boring and ran away to Camarand. She now spends her time working
part time at the famous Wild Rose Tavern, where she's made many friends. Tamara
has been infatuated with Erik Greystone for years, and he has recently been made
aware of her feelings.
Lady Trisha (Trisha) - one
of the late King Tronin's many ex-wives (not the mother of Alexander and
Tamara). After being cast aside by the King for an even younger woman, Trisha
wound up in Karteia where she became involved with Dirk Blackpool. Back then,
Dirk was not yet a heartless tyrant, but still their relationship did not work
out. Trisha still has a soft spot for Dirk, a fact the he sometimes exploits to
Usagi Claire (Usagi)-
the bunny girl. Usagi is a native of Monigold and a humanoid rabbit. While she
is a young and very friendly girl, no one has ever doubted Usagi's bravery.
After all, her father is a general and head of the Claire Hare clan, and she
does control a pack of the dreaded tracking Chihuahuas.
Princess Xena Greystone (Xena)
- the twin sister of Justin, Xena is a true warrior princess. She was separated
from her family at a very young age and grew up unaware of her heritage. As a
young woman, she started down a dark path, becoming a feared warlord as she
traveled the world. Eventually she turned back to the light and became a great
hero. Not that long ago, Xena learned she was actually a Greystone and returned
to Aperans with her sidekick and good friend, Gabrielle. [Note that this
character is not identical to the Xena of the TV series. She has not had every
adventure and experience of the TV character, so don't assume you know her
history just because you've seen the show. Also, there are some differences in
appearance. The list Xena has two tone hair color: blonde as Erik in front, dark
as Justin in back (she claims it's natural, but only her hairdresser knows for
sure). Also, her trusty steed, Argo is a horse of a different color.] Like her
twin, Justin, Xena has voluntarily given up her claim to the throne.
Zakiyah (Lesley) - a
mysterious dancer from another land, Zakiyah lets most people think of her as a
gypsy entertainer. However she also seems to have some secret from her past
