Prijani Kamaba - 24 - Prijani was extremely confused and more than a little jealous that Azer was selected to deliver the Girespol instead of her. As the greatest warrior the village had seen in 50 years she thought she was the obvious choice. She was somewhat mollified when she was selected to be the first of Azer's companions and guardians on the quest.
Nhok Rhuole - 40 - Nhok is known for both his skill as great healer and his massive size due to standing head and shoulders over the majority of people of his village. As a young man Nhok watched over the village children, including Azer and Prijani. Having watched them grow up he volunteers himself to accompany them as the second guardian.
Ulzea - 19 - A deserter from Tailesid, a village on the back side of Alz'Turen, who was vocal about Tailesid's leader being crazed for wanting to seize the girespol from Azer. She is initially mistrusted by Azer and the group because of her dark demeanor but is eventually accepted as a friend and companion.
Alz'Turen - A little over 3000 - The Great Dragon Tortoise. Alz'Turen is one of the 11 remaining Goliaths, and is the oldest of the Ancient Three including Vezlorik "Guardian of the sky" and Kelezugame "Sentinel of the Oceans". Alz'Turen is one of the cornerstones in the war against the Demigols. The Runes on his shell create a protective shield against destructive forces, these runes protect him but are primarily to protect the humans that live on his shell. Alz'Turen also possesses the magic ability to constantly absorb the energies of the world which upon completion manifests itself as a girespol. The flames he spits are said to eat the earth, burn the very sky and, boil the waters. Alz'Turen is also known for his great wisdom and reason, and is often sought out by other goliaths for his insight.
On the world of Egaigea giant beings roam and maintain order. These beings are known as the "Goliaths". Massive creatures that share symbiotic relationships with the humans that live on them, the Goliaths possess power worthy of their size. The humans take it upon themselves to maintain the ancient magics that protect the Goliath they live on, while the Goliath protects its humans from the "demigols" a new generation of minor goliaths that seek to destroy the Goliath's of old and take their place as the apex of power on Egaigea.
Alz'Turen the Great Dragon Tortoise, is the oldest and most powerful of the remaining Goliaths. But as the war with the demigols continues, his strength is waning and his options for survival are either a stasis known as a "Great Sleep" or for his humans to finish the "Girespol" a orb of great magic and energy collected on his shell, and to deliver it to his head to be consumed.
Azer Rorai is the human selected to undertake the "Odyssey" and deliver the girespol to Alz'Turen. With war erupting both on the shell and among Goliaths, the Odyssey is only thing standing between destruction and salvation.
