(Oh yeah, and I could NOT find any actress who looked anything like Ember, so I made my own using the Mary Kay virtual makeover. Soo...don't guess on her. :P If you want, you could say actresses who you think look like Ember. )
Hail is a young warrior who is trying to redeem himself from his dark past. He is cold, brooding, and is becoming increasingly distant. He does not trust much, himself least of all. As his brother begins to find out more about Hail's past, Hail begins to work harder to redeem himself.
Ember is an orphan brat turned hero, but she pretty much ditches that last part when she decides to try and find answers from her own past. She is stubborn, headstrong, and fiery. She struggles to find her place in the world, and to try and become sufficient guidance and family to her little sister.
Valin is the "new kid," the "rookie" in the government of the Pull. He (quite literally) had to scratch his way to the top. He has managed to keep his deadly record a secret and he hides behind a facade of charm and eloquent justice. Deep inside though, he holds a grudge against the Leverage and he has no intention of letting them save Holdinus.
Snow is finally fulfilling her destiny, but part of her is telling her it is to late to earn forgiveness with anyone, including Elethor. It certainly does not help when her travelling companion begins to become disgusted with her past actions. Snow is outwardly composed and calm, but she also still retains her old sneaky and manipulative abilities.
Klina is the little sister of Ember. She has spent most of her life tossed from place to place. When she first met her new sister, she was inspired by her fiery spirit and bravery, but Klina soon realizes that Ember is a far cry from the perfect sister. Klina is both spunky and serious, and she really wants the world to be peaceful again so they can settle to a normal life.
Rime is the younger brother of Hail. He can be a tad demanding and whiny, but he really wants to be like his older brother. Hail is often disgusted with Rime's lack of seemingly lack of fortitude and courage...but perhaps he will discover that maybe Rime is not the cowardly one...
Of all the Leverage, Flake prides herself on being the only one to have maturity and a "decent" background. She tends to look at the world, and herself, with rose colored spectacles. But when Flake realizes that maybe she is not so perfect, in fact, that she might have caused the most damage of all of them, she begins to see the world a little differently.
Dray is an ever-mysterious and cocky enigma that touches paths with Ember, Hail, and Valin. He is often underestimated...and no one is really sure who he is or he works for. The only person more mysterious than him is his older brother, Jess. But that's another story. ;)
