Cast of Characters
The Lowe Household
Father of the Lowe clan. He's the one who got the job in Antoinette. He works for Wilhelm.
Mother of the Lowe clan. Came to Antoinette when Kurt, her husband, got a job there. Now owns an antique store downtown but is sometimes confused by the patrons.
Ellie is a sarcastic 12-year-old. She's not pleased with being moved but she's starting to get to know people. Though they're not always who they seem.
Jackson is the youngest of the Lowes. At age four he's not yet in school. Alone among the Lowe's he finds out right away that something unusual is going on. But who listens to a four-year-old?
Key is the Lowe's housecat. He resented moving to Antoinette. However, he is determined to bring down the fairies, Newton and Curry. It's just what a cat does, after all.
Newton is a fairy that lives in the Lowe's home. He enjoys teasing the cat, making fun of people, and occasionally believing his own hype. Partners with Curry, the female fairy in the house.
Curry is the female fairy in the Lowe's home. She's more of a trickster than Newton but also more engaged in the family's world. She also enjoys their nightly battles with Key the cat.
The Lowe's house. The fairies can communicate with it and it can act when it wants to.
Joran, also known as 'Big Yo', is the mayor of Antoinette. He can be a little overhearing at times and doesn't like to hear anyone elses opinion. At least he doesn't consider theirs as important as his.
Another member of Antoinette's ruling class. Very clannish and territorial and follows Joran completely. Hints that things have gone poorly for outsiders in the past.
Wilhelm is Kurt's boss. He's involved in Antoinette City Council and a confident of Joran. Wilhelm has doubts about Antoinette and its ability to move forward without radical change.
Elderly inhabitant of Antoinette. She dislikes Joran and appears to have done so for a long time. But at one time Joran was very sweet on her...an affection she didn't return.
Mother of Will and alpha female of the pack. So alpha that we don't see a whole lot of the alpha male, who may figure it's best to keep his distance. Not always a great mother, she can be hard on Will, which may explain his combative personality.
A neighbor of the Lowe's. He's very paranoid and jumpy. It's clear that something in Antoinette made him that way but the Lowe's aren't sure what it was. Key the cat enjoys bothering him.
Lori runs the local deli. His menu selection is...eccentric...but one has to suppose he knows his customers.
Jayme is the teacher/principal of the school that Ellie attends. It's not that strenuous a job with only six students. So she has time for her other hobbies.
Husband of Principal Jayme Feffer, Richard is an academic sort. Good at knowing the history of the others but not always good at connecting the world with Antoinette. Also spends some of his time as a cat, either at his discretion or when Jayme gets irritated at him.
Will is a classmate of Ellie's. 12 years old he's a bit of a jerk and can be aggressive to the other children. Oh, and he can also turn into a young wolf.
A fellow student at Ellie's school.
Another student at the school. Thinks Antoinette is a boring place to live.
The Bad Guys
The Witch lives out in the woods. She's not nice and scares even Joran. Has some sort of personal grudge against him.
