Likes: Adventure, climbing

Dislikes: Boredom

Pozu is a bizarre child of indeterminable gender who wears a powerful scarf. Nobody, including seemingly Pozu, knows what country Pozu came from. Pozu seems highly oblivious and doesn't often listen to others, though whether this is all just an act or Pozu is just awkward, nobody can say.

Pozu's scarf seems to have a mind of its own and is capable of moving without Pozu's help. It's extremely swift and surprisingly powerful in combat for an article of clothing. The scarf sometimes makes gestures that reflect Pozu's mood, in place of Pozu's actual arms.

He seems to value bugs more than he does people.

Beirand has invented a musical device called the “bug whistle” that he can use to summon and command various insects. Although he's not too strong on his own, when controlling swarms of bugs, he's a force to be reckoned with. Beirand is very intelligent, but his knowledge is mostly limited to his field of study.

Ghiro is exceptionally strong, able to use both his large build and his intimidating horns to his advantage in battle. Ghiro, like all members of the Horned Clan, has an ability to enter into a state he refers to as “Pure Rage”. In this form, Ghiro’s horns and muscles grow and he becomes even stronger, at the cost of being unable to distinguish friend and foe and becoming very weak for a time after his Pure Rage state wears off.
