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
- Main characters:
Alton: hero of the novel, perhaps the most important
character. He is the narrator of one chapter out of two.
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.
Syrtis: Regis Hastur's closest friend (they are sworn
brothers) and bodyguard. Keeper of Ardais.
Raimon Kadarin: main instigator of
Sharra's awakening. A very important character in the whole
Darkover "recent" history.
Darriell: Kadarin's "wife". Nearly as important as
Aldaran: Lew Alton's "cousin". Main instigator of
Sharra's awakening with Kadarin.
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.
Alton: Lewis Alton's father. He is quite important
at the beginning of this novel.
