Iona, a 14-year-old fashionista from Los Angeles, is wrapped up in reality and
struggles to understand a world of magic.
Flynn is a 16-year-old taxi driver from Dingle Bay Ireland. Iona is shocked to discover that
Flynn is " a mischievous teen with curious eyes, a pointy chin and lips that curl into a
permanent laugh line. His blonde hair is as shocked to be on his head as I am in his car."
Gita is Mistress at Arms for the Fairy World. Strong and intimidating, Gita does not take
kindly to people who ignore orders or what is best for the Fairy World.
Iona's first meeting with Gita: "I hear her footsteps walking around me, assessing me as a
threat. She keeps herself out of my eye line. 'How did you break past the crystal
defenses,' the female voice says, sharking around me."
HAVOK, GOBLIN KING OF MUCK, NUCK AND LUCK
Havok speaks in rhyme and pursues Iona throughout the Human and Fairy Worlds.
Upon their first confrontation, Iona sizes Havok up. "I notice his craggy skin stretches over
his pumpkin cheeks, large sunken eyes and a bobble head that are too big for his wiry,
10-inch body. He’s the creature from the stone wall!"
All of these original characters belong to Iona Fay and were created and taken from the book. Su Jen Buchheim is the talented artist who drew each of these wonderful characters.
