If Ever Two Were One...

8. Cast of Characters

As this story is so heavy with OCs - male and female - I am including this list of characters. It may be added to as time goes on, but for the moment I believe this covers everyone.


Edrys - a woman of Rohan; OC

Gárulf - a Rider of Rohan; LotR canon (sort of)

Théodred - son and heir to Théoden; LotR canon

Éomer - sister-son to Théoden; LotR canon

Bearn - eldest brother of Edrys; OC

Ardith - wife of Bearn; OC

name - eldest son of Bearn and Ardith; OC

Æthelwulf - 2nd eldest brother of Edrys; OC

Odelyn - wife of Æthelwulf; OC

Ædre - daughter of Æthelwulf and Odelyn, niece of Edrys; OC

Hilderinc - 3rd eldest brother of Edrys; OC

Clænnis - wife of Hilderinc; OC

Éadwine - brother of Edrys, twin brother of Rodor; OC

Willa - wife of Éadwine; OC

Rodor - brother of Edrys, twin brother of Éadwine; OC

Elswyth - wife of Rodor; OC

Mearwyn - daughter of Rodor and Elswyth; OC

Drefan - youngest of Edrys's brothers; OC

Rheda - wife of Drefan; OC

Acennan - Gárulf's squire; OC

Aldhelm - father of Gárulf; OC

Ealhere - father of Edrys; OC

Ansithe - mother of Edrys; OC

Galmod - maternal grandfather of Edrys; LotR canon

Grima - son of Galmod, counsellor to Théoden; LotR canon

Ceorl - young man of the Westfold; OC

Cwengyth - first wife of Ealhere; mother of the six brothers of Edrys; OC

Ealdian - a man of the Westfold; Ardith and Odelyn’s elder brother; OC

Gethwyne - Aldhelm's wife and Garulf's mother; *note: she is related to Eomund, Éomer and Eowyn’s father OC

Heregyth - Gárulf’s older sister (she’s five years older). She wed Alduulf, a man with extensive holdings in the Eastfold. They live in Aldburg with their three sons *not yet named

Nightwing (modernization of the OE Nihtfiðere literally Niht - night; fiðere - wing) - Edrys’ black mare

Canrinth - Gárulf's grey horse. *note: I've borrowed the name from Mary Stewart's Merlin series, where it is the name given to Arthur's horse. She cites it as Cetic in origin, meaning "white phantom". I fell in love with the name and hope I have sufficient reason to suppose it not totally inconsistent with Rohirric naming conventions.
