"Mirror Mirror": Non-Player Characters
Eric: King of Amber, Eric rules with a heavy hand, and some
say, a heavy heart. Even with Corwin banished back into shadow and
presumed dead, and Bleys under constant watch, the crown seems to sit
uneasily on his brow, and he brooks no dissention, either from his
siblings or the denizens of Amber.
Deirdre: Thought lost to the Abyss, until she returned to Amber
months after Patternfall, broken, bleeding and silent. Even now she
rarely speaks, except in support of her brother's rule. She stands at his
side as enforcer and confidant, the only one of his siblings that Eric
appears to trust.
Bleys: Upon his return to Amber some years after Eric's
ascension to the throne, Bleys spent seven years imprisoned by Eric's
command for his role in Corwin's failed coup. Released only after
Gerard's dogged campaign for his freedom, Bleys has settled in a quiet
corner of the city, and is under the constant watch of Eric's agents, and
not allowed to leave the environs of the city.
Random: After Oberon's funeral, Random returned to Rebma. But
he suddenly returned to Amber one day and never left again, not even to go
below the sea. He spends most of his time carousing in the city. There
is no love lost between him and Eric, and like Bleys, Eric's agents keep a
close eye on his every move.
Fiona: Fiona seems content with the status quo, as long as Eric
leaves her to her own devices. She avoids all contact with Bleys, but has
been known to speak in his defense, even to Eric. It says a great deal
about their relationship that she can do so without any apparent fear of
Gerard: Gerard maintains the Navy for Eric, though out of
loyalty to Amber, and not his brother. He is the only one of the siblings
who openly associates with Bleys. He has suffered for this, but in his
stalwart way refuses to stop.
Mirelle: Quiet, fragile Mirelle, who nursed Deirdre after her
return to Amber, is seemingly devoted to her older sister, and acts as a
lady-in-waiting to her. She avoids Eric though, who sees her as weak and
useless, and taunts her cruelly.
Caine: Caine is a quiet in Amber, as Eric is holding his
daughter hostage, both as punishment for his betrayal, and as insurance
against any other action.
Lewella: Lewella is a rare sight in Amber, only coming above
the ocean for matters of state between the two realms.
Elspeth: Mirelle's daughter, the youngest of the cousins, at
seven. No one knows who her father is.
Devon: Fourteen year old Devon is the son of Random and Vialle.
He has been fostered to Eric by Queen Moins, some assume to spite Random,
for abandoning Devon and Vialle.
