“A young man sat there writing. Chestnut hair over his shoulders; eyes like deep water under evening sky. A thin, strong-jawed face, a straight nose, a generous mouth.”

“Once or twice I looked up and found his eyes on me, and what was in them filled me with joy and sorrow both at once. Sometimes I watched him without his being aware of it. I found myself memorizing his features, the strong jaw, the straight nose, the chestnut hair, pleasing even in its current salt-crusted, unkempt state, the deep lake-blue eyes, like those of a sage in an old tale . . . And when he looked up and saw me watching, he smiled.”

Erip and Wid

Erip and Wid:

“Welcome, lad,” Erip said with a gap-toothed grin. “You like games?”
A nod.
“You’ve come to the right place, then”, said Wid, stroking his white beard.

“Bald-headed Erip and hawk-nosed Wid welcomed questions, though not the ones Boichan would not answer.”

Bran’s Men

The Band of The Painted Man:

“With difficulty, I tore my gaze away to where Gull and Dog and Snake were standing mute amongst a group of other men. Their garb was motley, in tune with Eamonn’s description: a shaggy pelt here, feathers there, chain links, leather patches, straps and buckles, silver collars and armlets, and a not inconsiderable display of well-muscled flesh in various shades.”

“As he spoke, there came through the bushes a number of men, men with strange, exotic markings on the skin of their faces and limbs and bodies, men clad in outlandish garb made from wolfskins and feathers and metal, with helms that gave them the semblance of Otherworld creatures, half human, half beast.”
