The Immortals quartet is the story of Veralidaine Sarrasri (known as Daine), an orphan with an unusual talent: she can speak with animals.
Daine is accompanied on her travels by the black-robe mage Numair Salmalin, a young dragon named Skysong (or Kitten), and her trusty pony Cloud. She is also friends with Onua and the legendary Alanna of Trebond (also known as the Lioness), King Jonathan and Queen Thayet of Tortall, and many animals, immortals, and other humans. Born in a town called Snowsdale in the country of Galla, Daine also travels to many other kingdoms, including Carthak.
Veralidaine Sarrasri - The main character of the quartet, she is a young woman possessing "wild magic," and has the power to speak to, heal, and shape shift into animals. Her father is a minor god. She also appears briefly in the Protector of the Small and Daughter of the Lioness series.
Numair Salmalín - A very tall, very powerful mage with the ability to shape shift. He is Daine's teacher and later a love interest; they are married shortly before the events of Trickster's Choice and have two children.
Onua Chamtong - A trader and horse mistress for the Queen's Riders. She hires Daine as her assistant in Wild Magic. It is revealed that she was physically abused by her husband and left for dead before joining the Riders.
Skysong (A.K.A. Kitten) - A baby dragon whose mother died in the battle at Pirate's Swoop. Skysong was initially dead in the womb before Daine inadvertently healed her, and afterwards Daine becomes her guardian for the rest of the series.
Zekoi- A pygmy marmoset that Daine befriends after saving it from crocodiles in the River Zekoi during the events in Emperor Mage.
Cloud-A pony that Daine has had since before the series started. She is quite stubborn, but is very loyal to Daine. It was partly through her ability to speak with Cloud that Daine learned of her wild magic. She refers to Numair as "Stork Man".
Kaddar- The prince of Carthak, becoming emperor at the end of Emperor Mage. Friend of Daine because he was her guide during her visit to Carthak.
