About the Secondary Unexpected Inspiration Characters

These are the secondary/minor characters in the Unexpected Inspiration series. You can meet the main characters here.

Camille is a priestess with magic that summons and controls elementals. She was sent away from her home temple, the Sanctuary of Light in Montglace, with an order not to return until a specific task was completed. Almost a decade later she has not lost the determination to see this through, just as she retained the frustration with the partner she was assigned. Camille is highly judgmental, arrogant, and career-focused to the point where one goal is all that drives her life. She sees the task she was assigned as one simple yet long-delayed step towards proving herself and gaining recognition, and blames Rosalie for the time they’ve wasted in leaving it unfulfilled. She’s determined to become the high priestess of her Sanctuary and will do whatever it takes to obtain this goal– including belittling, threatening, and using the woman who is her only ally in a place far from their home. | Moodboard / Pinterest Board |

Feren Cole loves styling himself into a tragic victim. As one of the few unmagical Artisans, he has always felt like he deserved more than life gave him despite having everything handed to him and roads of opportunity available at every turn. He was once Adair and Nina’s sentinel-intended, but he felt he wasn’t good enough at it and dropped out of this role. He’s currently studying as a scholar with no real career goal in mind while working at his girlfriend’s restaurant as a waiter and delivery boy – when he can be bothered to show up. If an easy road to recognition and leisure presents itself, he’s going to jump on it with no questions asked. He’s always seeking to improve his lot in life with the minimum amount of effort on his part. | Moodboard / Pinterest Board |

Sapphire is Etri’s former mentor and thieving partner, as well as one of his closest friends. She’s currently the leader of the carnival troupe in Silveridge, the capital city of Concordia, and coordinates the city's performers. This is about as effective as herding cats. When Sapphire isn't sorting out who's performing at which venue and breaking up arguments about costumes, she can be found in her other organizational role with the troupe. Many of the performers are also thieves who return stolen art back to the artists who created it and it's up to Sapphire to keep track of what each reverse-thief is doing so that they don't cross paths or get caught. Sapphire excels at this administrative role, being calm, competent, and experienced, while at the same time her strong desire to take care of the people she considers family makes them intensely loyal. Keeping her carnies safe always comes before anything else and there's nothing her troupe wouldn't do for her in return. | Moodboard / Pinterest Board |

Talan is equal parts cheerful and peculiar, with almost a lethal case of curiosity. He’s something of a magpie who collects various bits of everything in a personal quest to discover its purpose. He has a tenuous grasp on the concept of possessions and tends to think of anything that isn’t currently being worn or carried or nailed down as fair game. How can it be thievery when the person clearly doesn’t want it anymore? He’s Firedrake’s boyfriend, at least for a little while, and Dray’s malfunctioning moral compass hasn’t exactly been the best influence in Talan’s life. Relatively new to Concordia in particular and civilization in general, Talan struggles with things like laws, idioms, and telling other people apart. He’s determined to learn these things, though, and wants more than anything to fit in. | Moodboard / Pinterest Board |

Ametrine Travellarri is a quiet and timid runaway who finds himself fostered with the carnival troupe in Concordia's capital city. There he meets Firedrake who had also been a runaway from Galanvoth. Firedrake takes Ametrine under their wing and when they introduce him to their friends, Ametrine soon discovers that these new people care more about him than his family ever did. When Adair asks him if he wants to be adopted, he doesn't really understand why they want him, but agrees without hesitation. The way Ametrine sees it, five people who love him is far more like a family than two traditional parents who didn't. | Moodboard / Pinterest Board |

Nina Pare is a chef with culinary magic who owns her own restaurant. As much of an honor as it was to have it passed to her when the old owner retired, she was really given this opportunity too early. This isn't to say that she's not a capable chef and businesswoman, more that Feren keeps messing things up for her and it would have been better if she'd had the chance to break up with him first. Every time she tries to do this, some disaster happens, and this gets pushed to her backburner. Feren has already scared off half of the employees with his perpetual bad attitude while simultaneously refusing to do the work he should be doing as her muse-intended. Between dealing with Feren’s drama, still being in the “experimenting with magic" stage of her career, and trying to run a busy restaurant, she hasn't had a moment's peace in months, let alone been able to travel to try new cuisine. Someone give this poor, overworked girl a vacation.

Wysta Larkspur is the lead healer of Blythe, Etri, and Sol's carnival troupe. She was Blythe's main instructor and mentor and taught Blythe most of what she knows about healing magic and medicine. Wysta is a former Protectorate and her shaved head is a sign of giving up the life of a guard. Specific braids designate status as a Protectorate and it’s a ritual to cut off the braid when you pick a different path in life. Usually a former Protectorate will let their hair grow back, but Wysta keeps her head shaved as a personal-- and practical, considering her profession-- style choice. While Wysta is efficient and sensible, contrasting with the flightier personalities of the carnies she calls family, she possesses both a great sense of humor and a friendly bedside manner. There are very few people Blythe admires and respects, so it says a lot that she holds Wysta in the highest regard and trusts her with information she doesn't give anyone else.
