Parca: Onomastics: The Parcae (or a Parca) were the female personifications of destiny to Romans, sometimes called the Fates in modern terms. As the Parcae, they held control over the thread of life of every mortal and immortal as it wound from from birth to death. Likely the Parca appearing in chapter 1 (Dear Ben) was Nona as she is said to have spun the thread of life from her distaff. Character Synopsis: An old woman Able wakes up to. She appears to inhabit a cave that opens to a rocky bay.

Weland: Onomastics: Wayland the Smith is a legendary master blacksmith in Germanic and Norse mythology. In Old English his name is spelled Weland, the same as Wolfe's character in the Knight. Wayland also appears in the Poetic Edda, though the Norse called him Volundr. Character Synopsis: Weland is said to have forged Eterne, the haunted Sword of Grengarm, from a mass of white hot steel.
