The protagonist of The Thanatos Trilogy, Natylia must go from pampered nineteen-year-old to Queen of her kingdom almost overnight. Her success — or failure — could decide the fate of Araenna.

-The Thanatos Trilogy is drafted off a manuscript I wrote when I was 15. Natylia is from that manuscript.
-In her original iteration Natylia was Natealya.
-Originally, she had a pet unicorn named Charity, who she could communicate with telepathically.
-She was initially meant to be blonde and tall.
-Since everything else moved hyper fast in the original draft, Natylia was also set to be pregnant by the end of the second book—a book that I started but never finished, and a scene that will inevitably be cut. (Sorry guys xD)
-Her love interest has always been the same.
-Nat has always loved to ride horses.
-Much like her mother and sister in Imber, Natylia used to love fancy gowns and elaborate jewelry. (Though still to a lesser degree than them.) As I got older, she changed quite a bit; and adopted my preference for boots as the most comfortable shoes ever. :P

-Jyn was an accidental character. He was not in the original draft of Imber, back when it was still third person.
-Jyn walked fully formed into a dream and would not leave.
-The affinity he has for blueberry muffins was again, unplanned. Jyn has a life of his own.
-Jyn decided to go by his abbreviated name when he got frustrated with the way humans pronounced his Elvish one.
-Natylia's original bodyguard was stated as a terrible fighter. I removed him because at that point, the position seemed useless. And in walked Jyn, who is a combat master.

Court Enchantress of Thrais by title, Meryn serves more as an aid to the palace healers than anything else. As a close friend of Natylia's she's privy to information generally considered above her station.

-Meryn was in the 15-year-old original draft, but her character underwent dramatic changes for The Thanatos Trilogy.
-Originally, Meryn's name was Lauralyn.
-Her first iteration had no specific powers or abilities, but she was still a healer.
-She was originally intended to be brunette.
-The cottage she has in palace grounds is pretty much the same.
-Her affinity for baking isn't new either.

The most talented blacksmith in Thrais, and possibly all of Araenna, Camion was initially hired only as a trainer for Natylia. When they inevitably became friends, Camion found himself swept up into the politics of the kingdom.

-Camion is from that original, 15-year-old draft.
-Camion's name was almost changed multiple times, but I could not shake "Camion". So it stayed.
-Camion has always been a blacksmith, but originally he was also a prince.
-I wrote a chapter from Camion's perspective because originally Imber was going to rotate between him and Natylia. I nixed the idea, but I still have a full chapter where he meets her officially for the first time and he um. He has some thoughts. Maybe I'll clean it up someday and release it as a freebie. ;)
-In his original iteration, Camion still lived with his father until he met Natylia. (Who, in that manuscript, had him move into the palace within five minutes of meeting her. Oops. When you ship it so hard . . . xD )
-Character personality wise, Camion is exactly the same as he was all those years ago.
