The Characters

Click on the character heads below to learn more

Oliver Gryffon

Oliver is a handsome and troubled boy, whose life has been surrounded by misfortune and strange rumour. He’s quiet (some might say brooding) but not because he’s shy. Oliver has always felt a little bit set-apart from everyone else – never feeling like he belongs – and his “problems” just reinforce that separation. People tend to think of him as strange – or even cursed.

Celia Mei

At first glance Celia may appear to be a beautiful, sweet, 12-year-old whose biggest concerns are with makeup and clothes. In reality, however, she’s a proud, strong-willed, intelligent and extremely talented young lady (and more than a little bit spoiled). Celia has an almost preternatural way with words. She is incredibly persuasive, and almost always gets her own way.

Eugene Donalds

Eugene is a self-proclaimed uber-nerd. He is quirky, quick-witted, inquisitive, and has a constant smirk that seems to say he’s always about to tell another joke. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of all things sci-fi and fantasy – whether it’s books, movies, TV, games or comics. He is very suspicious of authority figures, and is prone to believe in wild conspiracy theories.

Arthur Weirdwood

Known and loved the world-over for his many enchanting storybooks, wind-up toys and strange inventions, Arthur Weirdwood is nonetheless a mysterious, reclusive and incredibly eccentric man surrounded in rumour. Ever since the strange disappearance of his young apprentice William Booke, he’s withdrawn more and more from the world.

Ms. Brimley

Ms. Brimley is the well-meaning, if not slightly annoying host for the children during their visit to Weirdwood Manor. She is somewhat flighty and while friendly to the kids, she does treat them much younger than they actually are. She is very excited to be at Weirdwood Manor, but doesn’t seem to really notice the mysterious things that happen.

Tinsworth

Walter Tinsworth, the loyal, intelligent and very capable automaton-valet of Arthur Weirdwood, is the pragmatic balance to Arthur’s eccentricity. A wise and tactful automaton, he is a loyal servant capably organizing Arthur’s life, and fixing any awkward situations he may stumble into. Arthur and Tinsworth are the closest of friends and most trusted conspirators.
