SATYRS and MAENADS
The satyrs and maenads work as servants in the castle. On the Feast of
Sevens they escort single folks to watch the Night of Shooting Stars.
They are usually quite tame, but occasionally they get out of control.
On the Feast of Nines they drink “Nines’ Wines,” a mixture of grape and ivy juice.
The fauns work aboard the ships in Larkwood. They row the boats, or man the tillers.
The Yeomen stand guard in the castle. We don’t know much about them.
There is a picture of a Yeoman standing guard in the Royal Court Room.
Except for that, all we know is that they are very patient, if a bit dimwitted.
The Centaurs are half man and half horse. Not much is known about them.
They like to play polo in a field known as the Bowling Green.
The Wanderers go from village to village, pulling their little red wagons.
They keep warm at night by making beds of old newsletters.
The Wanderers ask the folks of Larkwood for morsels. When they have been given some morsels, they can have a picnic, “on this day of days.”
They celebrate Thanksgiving together. They wear scarves discarded by the Queen.
THE STRANGER FROM KNOTTY GLEN
The Stranger from Knotty Glen is a regular in the Peanut Gallery.
He also likes to sit in the corner of taverns, drinking nut-brown cider.
He frequents taverns such as The Swan Dive and The Hart’s Leap.
We don’t know for sure, but some folks say he is a spy for the Roots.
FAIRIES OF FAIRE SPRING
During the Feast of the Snow Flowers (“The Threes”) the Fairies of Faire Spring come out at night and sprinkle baskets of colors onto the white flowers that have popped up through the snow. Larkwood begins to look like a bright kaleidoscope of colors.
One night Livingstone Lion goes up into the mountains, near the source of the River of Time. There, a rainbow-colored elf challenges him. The Lion will have to make sure no rainbow-colored elves get into Larkwood.
