Characters of Sharra's Exile

More than thirty characters are involved in Sharra's. But in fact, only few characters are precisely described and play a really important role in the novel (main characters). Other characters are also very important as many events won't happen without them (important characters). But they are not as precisely described as the main characters. We don't know many things about they thoughts and feelings for instance. Finally, a lot of less important characters (other characters) appear in the novel. This classification is a bit personal and arbitrary.
  • Main characters:
    • Lew Alton: hero of the novel, perhaps the most important character. He is the narrator of one chapter out of two.
    • Regis Hastur: second hero of the novel.
  • Important characters:
    • Diotima Ridenow: Young woman of the Ridenow familly, Lew's wife.
    • Callina Lindir-Aillard: former Arilinn Keeper, she is now the attendant of Ashara.
    • Danilo Syrtis: Regis Hastur's closest friend (they are sworn brothers) and bodyguard. Keeper of Ardais.
    • Robert Raimon Kadarin: main instigator of Sharra's awakening. A very important character in the whole Darkover "recent" history.
    • Thyra Darriell: Kadarin's "wife". Nearly as important as him.
    • Beltran Aldaran: Lew Alton's "cousin". Main instigator of Sharra's awakening with Kadarin.
    • Dyan Ardais: heir of Ardais domain. He is really important in this novel as a "technical" character, but not as precisely described as in the Heritage of Hastur.
    • Kennard Alton: Lewis Alton's father. He is quite important at the beginning of this novel.
    • Ashara: very old (almost legendary) keeper of the Comyn Castle tower, presumably the oldest tower on Darkover.
