-Too many big decisions
no more time to play
Gorrec is the leader
of the scavengers, and accepts all responsibility for them. He was the one
who, one by one, collected them and took care of them, you could even say
he helped to raise them. Especially considering that most of them were no
older than ten at the time.
Gorrec himself was very young when he started his band (though I can't say
what age for sure, Elise hasn't written it down anywhere). That gave him a
great deal of trouble and responsibility at a young age, which explains
why he is such a silent, strong individual.
Gorrec is also fairly intelligent, having travelled areas of Jirale, and
possibly Sail. He knows the terrain he brings his group to very well. He
has certain villages where they have haunts, and set up camp for more
permanent times- especially during tricky weather, and wintertime.
He is closest to Cheng, who is a lot like him in personality, excluding
the fact that she has a bad temper. She looks up to Gorrec as a role
model, and I think she might be his favourite out of the scavengers,
though, maybe he has no favourites. He doesn't seems the type to choose
between his friends...
The last thing Gorrec would ever want to see is one of his friends dying.
- Unchain yourself she said
and tie yourself to me
Yukari, the last of
the jokers. Sometimes I think it is her who should be David's sister, and
not Cheng! They hang around each other more, and tease each other
incessantly- though Yukari might have the advantage there, she's the
brains behind the scavengers, and it shows. Even if she does play the
ditzy girl well.
Yukari speaks all three languages of Jirale (although, thats not really
what the continent is called, I'm betting), meaning she speaks Gemmian,
Jiralien and Sail. Her first language is Gemmian, since that is where she
was born, and she's not too great with Jiralien.
She's been with the scavengers for a long time- she was found by Gorrec
even before Cheng and David. Yukari isn't just smart, but as one of the
scavengers, she's been taught to fight, and can beat Seth in sword combat.
She can probably beat David too.
Yukari seems to like Itchtake more than the other scavengers, probably
because some talkative female company must be hard to find.
One of the most important things about Yukari is, however, her affection
for Seth. They are deeply in love, and have been together for some time,
and even though Seth is seven years older than her, they are a wonderful
couple. Surprisingly, Seth is still a big joker and kinda immature for his
age, but he can also be very caring and considerate, which is why Yukari
is attracted to him.
If Elise does write a prelude to Jirale, I would very much like to find
out more about their relationship.

and every day I thank you love
Hair: Gold blonde
Seth is one of the
three jokers in the scavengers. He's funny in a boyish way, especially
liking slapstick humour and teasing. Of course, normally, he's the one
Seth's been with the scavengers for a long time, even though he was the
last one to be added to their happy little family. He was brought into
their group after he pick-pocketed Gorrec, and then was beat up by Cheng.
Gorrec took pity on the young boy (he was only about 12 at the time), and
brought him into the group, where he became close friends with all of
them, especially David, and ESPECIALLY Yukari, who he is in love with.
It isn't made clear how long he and Yukari have been a couple, but they
are very serious about each other, and they are very cute together.
He is so in love with her, that he would die for her. He cares about
nothing more than he cares about her, and it shows (though I would have
liked to get into their relationship a bit more in the comic). They
constantly tease and poke fun at each other, and with David, the three are
a constant nuisance to the other scavengers, though a loved nuisance.
-But what I'm not allowed to have
I never could refuse
David is a scavenger, and one of 'the
jokers'. The jokers are the three scavenger who play tricks on each other,
and the other scavengers, and they usually lighten the moods by making
stupid jokes. Out of them, David's the one who really disregards a
situation. He'll make jokes about anything that happens.
Adopted around the
age of twelve by Gorrec, David and Cheng-I (his twin sister) were two of
the first scavengers in the group. David fights well, usually using a
machete (not that you see much of it in the comic), although not so well
as his sister.
Before joining the
scavengers, David and Cheng-I prowled the streets, since their parents
were either dead or had kicked them out. David relied heavily on Cheng,
since she was much more serious and street smart. When they became
scavengers, they became more involved in their separate lives, but they
still love each other and take care of each other.
