Here are a few of Brey's childhood friends from Merchants Nest.
From left to right we have :
Turve, a bob tailed fox and escaped
slave, originally a dancer and part of a nomadic troupe.
Marmalade, human, Named for her
ginger hair and the fact she was found in a fish crate near the
docks as a toddler, like a kitten. She's one of several strays Turve and Erix found and raised.
Erix, a guinea pig and nephew of
a baker, a generous baker, with a soft spot for large eyed waifs
Seln a very young marsupia, also
a foundling and a natural acrobat. She still waits for her parents to return to the city.
Turve and Erix are probably an item. I'll redraw this picture in future.
