1. Timotheus of the House of BelyiaHigh King of Esidaraq, head of the Royal Family, and respected throughout Quara. He is handsome and charming and thus, popular with the ladies, who already swarm around him because of his title. He likes hunting, singing and dancing, when he can find time away from his kingdom duties to do anything for pleasure.
2. Ariana of the House of BelyiaHigh Queen of Esidaraq and female head of the Royal Family because her mother is dead.

The darling of London society, the man every eligible girl is on the catch for, handsome, courteous, rich, powerful, he has it all. But the man behind the mask doesn't want flattery and a brainless society wife. He wants someone who will love him for himself.

The sister she loves better than life, despite -or because of- the the fact said sister is as different from her as night and day. A skilled horsewoman, she can outride most of her cousins, and would rather be foxhunting than attending a ball. She is definitely one of my top favorite heroines.
(And for those who are wondering, Gemini is NOT going to be one of those feminist, 'proper young woman being independent and wanting a career and a life of her own' kind of story. Cordelia is headstrong but most definitely NOT feminist.)
