Blaise Harman - Blaise is one of the lead characters in the third book. She is a witch royal who is described as being a girl who bewitches boys for sport and hates humans. She is a cross-cousin of the Redferns and the cousin although they were raised like sisters of Thea Harman. She has long, dark hair and smoky, grey eyes.
She represents the persona of Maya, the original vampire and daughter of Hecate. Sylvia Weald - Sylvia is one of the characters in Black Dawn. She is dating Maggie Neely's brother, whom she changes into a shapeshifter. She sides with Hunter Redfern and binds Delos's powers before the maiden of witches, Aradia, changes her mind.
She is killed by one of Hunter's guardians seconds after she releases Delos. Gillian Lennox Harman - Gillian is told of her heritage by her dead cousin who comes back as an "Angel". She is a petite girl with short silver-blonde hair and violet eyes. She is a distant cousin of Thea and Blaise as well as the Redferns. She has a human soulmate, David Blackburn, with whom she joins Circle Daybreak.
Gillian is descended for the lost Harman twins, Elspeth and Emmeth. She is also prophesied to be the Witch Child. She spends most of the book denying that she is a witch, but eventually accepts her fate. As the Witch Child, she was supposed to marry the Prince of the Shapeshifters, but she refused.
Poppy North - Poppy was a lost witch along with her twin brother, Phillip North, and dying of pancreatic cancer before her best friend, James, turns her into a vampire. James figures out that she is a witch when she dreams of Ash before they even meet, develops an extremely strong telepathic ability, and screams to James while inside her dream about Ash. When she screams in her dream, three people hear it: James, Phillip, and her dad.
Poppy has curly red hair and emerald green eyes. Phillip North - Phillip is the twin brother of Poppy North. He is extremely straitlaced and responsible. He opposes Poppy and James's relationship, because of James's reputation with girls. When he learns about his real heritage, he chooses to live as a human, though he does keep in contact with Poppy and knows about the other Night World creatures.
Phillip is tall, smart, and athletic, with blond hair and green eyes. Gary Fargeon "Angel" - Not much is known about Gary because he died when he was seventeen in a car accident.

He wants to rejoin the world of the living and develops a dangerous plan. In the end, Gary's soul finally rests in peace with a little help from his cousin Gillian.
A werewolf is a type of shapeshifter. As no main characters in any of the novels have been werewolves Lupe Acevedo in Soulmate was only half-werewolf and she was a minor character; and there was barely anything known about Jeremy Lovett from Daughters of Darkness , less is known about this species than others. In Night World , werewolves sometimes called 'wolves or just wolves can transform from human to wolf and vice versa at will. In Daughters of Darkness , werewolves are described as wolves that take human form, rather than the reverse.
This means that they have animal instincts and urges, even in human form. This is all contrary to modern werewolf lore, in which a werewolf is basically a normal person but undergoes an involuntary transformation. Though it is not stated explicitly, it appears that, like vampires, werewolves can be born as such and can also be made.
Unlike vampires, werewolves must kill every time they feed because they need to consume organs. Thus, Night World law states that werewolves can kill and eat only animals.
In the Night World, werewolves are treated as second-class citizens and are the victims of prejudice and racism. As in modern werewolf lore, Night World werewolves are harmed by silver. The symbol for werewolves is a black foxglove. They are described by other members of the Night World such as James as having low intelligence levels.
Jeremy Lovett - Jeremy is seen in the second book Daughter of Darkness and is best friends with Mary-Lynette Carter, the protagonist of the book. Mary-Lynette thinks of him as a vulnerable boy since he doesn't have anyone to live with.
However, this is not entirely true. He is a territorial werewolf who doesn't obey Night World law and kills his uncle as well as a hiker in the woods. He fell in love with Mary-Lynette and tried to turn her into a werewolf.
When Ash Redfern attempted to stop him, Jeremy attacked. Mary-Lynette killed Jeremy to save her soulmate Ash's life.
Jeremy's unusual behavior while in werewolf form is why the local creek is named "Mad Dog Creek". Lupe Acevedo - Lupe is different from any other werewolf described and seen in the series. She is smart and one of Thierry's most trusted agents.
She is half-human, half-werewolf. Thierry saved her. She in turn saves Hannah when she is attacked by other werewolves in the sixth book Soulmate.

She has silvery-brown hair with yellow eyes. Shapeshifters appear later in the series; no main character is a shapeshifter until the ninth book, Witchlight. Before that, only allusions to shapeshifters are made, usually in the context of a Night Person explaining the Night World to a human and listing the Night World species. In Witchlight , the protagonist, Keller, is a shapeshifter.
She has the ability to change into the form of a panther at will. Some history about shapeshifters is given in Witchlight. Shapeshifters had control of the world long before witches and vampires. Their leaders were known as "Dragons", beings that could change into the form of any animal as long as they have had physical contact to that animal normally shapeshifters can change into only one pre-determined animal form.

To kill a dragon you must remove its horns. The more horns it has, the more powerful it is. The witches rose to power and put the dragons to sleep, except for the youngest one, the dragon princess, who was only 4 at the time.
The witches left her awake and raised her, carefully watching over her. All of the ruling house of shapeshifters are descended from her. The descendants of the ruling house have the ability to choose what animal they will become, but this choice is permanent.
In the early books of the series, werewolves and shapeshifters are described as separate groups or races of the Night World. For example, in Daughters of Darkness , Night World is described as comprising vampires, "witches and werewolves and shapeshifters, too". In Witchlight , when Keller tells the history of shapeshifters, she lists felines, bears, eagles, and wolves as groups or clans within the shapeshifter race. However, in Witchlight there is no real mention of Keller feeding or abiding by the rules for werewolves described in Daughters of Darkness.
The symbol for shapeshifters is a black lily. The type differs, for example tigers use tiger lilies.
She prefers being called by her last name as her first name means "demon". She is strong and secretive and she never shows her inner feelings to anyone. She is half shapeshifter, half human, and can turn into a panther. She prefers to work hard and repay Circle Daybreak for raising her after she was abandoned.
When she was discovered as a baby, she was in human form, but with a panther's ears and tail. Keller has long, black hair with silvery-grey eyes and is the only shapeshifter that has taken a main role in the series. On the author's website, we learn that she is Rashel Jordan's fraternal twin.
He is gentle, loving, and caring, like Iliana, and isn't a fighter, but he does try his best when Keller is about to get killed by a dragon. He was supposed to marry Iliana, but when Iliana realizes that Galen is Keller's soulmate, she tells them that their love is something no one could ever interfere with. He has golden hair with green-golden eyes. As a Prince, he gets to choose his animal shape and becomes a leopard at the end of the book to save Keller.
Miles Neely - Miles is a made shapeshifter who can turn into a falcon and is the older brother of Maggie Neely. He got turned into a shapeshifter by his girlfriend, Sylvia Weald, a witch. He and Maggie bear a strong resemblance to each other.
He has brown eyes and auburn hair. While the series is largely supernaturally-centered, humans do play a major role both as supporting characters and occasionally main characters or antagonists.
Humans - or Homo sapiens Latin: Humans have a main role as some of the protagonists in the series. Due in part both to their status as the dominant species as well as their largely adverse affects on the Earth, the Night World has endeavored to keep their existence a secret from humanity. The approach of the Apocalypse is due to the Night World's attempts at enslaving mankind.
While humans innately possess little to no paranormal attributes, they still possess undying souls subject to the Soulmate Principle as well as possibly being reincarnated over the span of centuries or more. These reborn humans are referred to as Old Souls within the Night World. Because of their relative impotence in relation to the predatory prowess of supernatural creatures, humans are a preferred food source for werewolves and vampires.
Humans are also able to be converted into made vampires through a blood exchange and conceive children with a witch. She is the older sister of Mark Carter, becomes a blood sister with the Redfern girls, and is the soulmate of Ash Redfern.
Mary-Lynnette is an astronomy lover who spends her time star-watching at night and is more of a night person than a day person. She is curious about everything and admires Nancy Drew , often wondering what she would do in her situation.
She is nicknamed Mare and is very protective of Mark, feeling responsible for him. She often displays an ironic sense of humor, is very strong, and talks to herself a lot.
Even though she and Ash are soulmates, she doesn't follow him, but tells him to fix his past mistakes then come back. Mary-Lynnette has long brown hair with blue eyes. When she first meets Ash, she can't stop kicking him in the shins, which is her way of suppressing the urge to kiss him, so everyone thinks she has gone mad. He is very shy and doesn't like to mix with others, but when he sees Jade for the first time, he falls in love.
With Jade's help, he convinces the other two Redfern sisters not to kill him and Mary-Lynette. He has brown hair with blue eyes.
Eric Ross - Eric is one of the lead characters in Spellbinder and is a gentle boy whom everyone likes.
He is shy and timid, yet he is one of the most popular boys in his school, with his sandy-colored hair and grey flecked-green eyes. He becomes Blaise's next target when she and Thea Harman move to town because he isn't bewitched by her and he falls in love with Thea.
His and Thea's love risks her expulsion from the Night World as she breaks a very strong law that could end not only their lives but everyone else's. David Blackburn - David is one of the lead characters in Dark Angel.
Night World No. 1: Secret Vampire; Daughters of Darkness; Spellbinder (Paperback)

David has brown hair with brown eyes and has tan skin. He reveals he loves Gillian when they go to a party after he hears of an affair between his longtime girlfriend, Tanya, and another boy. Rashel Jordan - Rashel, also known as "The Cat" by vampires, is the most feared vampire hunter in the record of Night World. She uses the phrase "This Kitten Has Claws" when killing vampires, in memory of her mother, who used to call her "kitten," and makes a mark on her victim's forehead resembling a cat's claws.
She is the protagonist of The Chosen. When she was five, her four-year-old friend, Timmy, was kidnapped and changed into a vampire and her mother was killed by Hunter. This is the main reason she becomes a vampire hunter which leads her to meet her cold-hearted soulmate, Quinn, whom she originally wants to kill. She later hunts only "bad vampires," and she and Quinn are known as the best fighters when they join Circle Daybreak. On the author's website, it is revealed that she is in fact half-shapeshifter and is the twin sister of Raksha Keller.
Rashel has long black hair which is tied back, and piercing green eyes. Hannah Snow - Hannah is the protagonist of Soulmate and an Old Soul who has been reincarnated since the Stone Age when she first saw her soulmate Thierry. Thierry was known as Theorn at that time, while she was known as Hana of the Three Rivers.
In each of her past lives, Hannah is killed by the first vampire, Maya Redfern, due to her loving Thierry. She has a birth mark on her right cheek which is a psychic brand from the time Thierry accidentally killed her , long blonde hair, and grey eyes. She is a sweet girl and is known as the Lady of Circle Daybreak.
In one of the short stories in the author's website, it is said that she has gone off to fight in the apocalypse. She and Morgead regularly challenge each other for leadership of the gang, and Jez believes—naturally enough—that the handsome, dark-haired vampire hates her. But suddenly the world changes for Jez.
She discovers that she has no right to the Night World, because one of her parents was human. Now Jez has turned into a vampire huntress, and one with a special job: find one of the four Wild Powers who can fight off the Apocalypse, the end of the world.
To do so, though, she must challenge her dearest enemy once again for the leadership—knowing that she has only half-vampire Powers. The chase leads her to discover an entire community of human slaves ruled by vampires in the hollow of a Washington mountain. There also, she finds Delos, the second of the Wild Powers, the vampire ruler of this kingdom where she is a slave—and her soulmate. Her modern clothes cause the other slaves to hail her as a messiah come to bring them freedom.
Can even level-headed Maggie deal with her arrogant soulmate and an entire kingdom to be freed? Night World: Witchlight, Pocket Books Keller is a seventeen-year-old shapeshifter, a panther, who goes by her last name only. Keller does find Iliana, and much more, as well: a dragon in the shape of a human, and her own liege lord Galen. So, she learns: dragons walk the Earth again, even if in disguise. And Iliana is as far from a serious Wild Power as Keller can imagine.
