I like Tempest.
Nate - Snow Elven male, formerly part of the white council but forced to join the expedition to humble him
Jak - Desert Elven male, strong and able to withstand great heat, surprisingly easy going for a gruff guy
Kelly - Forest Elven female, a bit of a nature freak and very powerful with plant magic. Sometimes sees fairies.
Hunter - Veldt Elven male, a "wild" elven who has an animalistic sensibility and can alter his shape to gain animal features.
Diane - Snow Elven female, weird sense of humor, she is both a priestess of Dianathena and having an affair with Dianathena's godly husband? Also sees fairies, but is probably just crazy.
Mike - Half Sea Half Veldt Elven male, part of a long line of sea captains and the hero of 7 lands. Kind of angsty.
Bkhee - Desert Elven female, extremely powerful priestess of antimagic but a little too used to being pampered and getting anyone she wants
Oberon - Cave Elven male, part of a powerful clan of dragon summoners, a potential challenge to the warlord's position, nice guy
Tad - Lava Elven male, a decent fire magic user and a bit of a rabble rouser. Kind of effeminate for a big guy, but some girls like that.
Tempest - Sea Elven female, a "wharf rat", a homeless stowaway who can summon storms and is a bit of a punk.
Gem - Lava Elven female, from a rich family and used to everything going her way, a bit too easy-going to care when it doesn't.
Ygranne - Cave Elven female, a "witch", well-versed in poisons, curses, and talking to the dead. Precocious and a bit nasty.
Dealer - Veldt Elven female, a spunky hero-worshipper who is really good at getting people to get along, at least usually.
Sajero - Forest Elven male, doesn't respect authority or position, only skill at the hunt. Doesn't see fairies, but somewhat wants to.
