Lee Featherston
Kellan Featherston's English father. His mind is going fast and arthritis has stricken him from the plow and the shepherd's crook. But he is a warm-hearted soul who is filled with regret for not doing better by his family in terms of wealth. He understands that Darina doesn't love him the way he wishes she did, and feels guilt about their arranged marriage years ago. He has early signs of Alzheimer's, though the disease wasn't officially recognized/named as such in this time period until 1902.

Darina Featherston
Kellan Featherston's Irish mother. She does much of the farm work now that Lee is in poor health. She's cold and strict from frustration and fatigue, but would do anything for her family. She married very young, in an arrangement she had no part in, but she has grown to love Lee in her own way, though she doesn't feel particularly romantic about it.

Nedeljko Muzuran
A Croatian native, Nedeljko Muzuran has had a complicated and mysterious upbringing. He, along with his sister Zorica, fled to Bosnia to live with distant cousins after some family tragedy that left them orphaned. It is rumoured that their name is derived from mažuran, the Bosnian word for marjoram, and was therefore an alias they both adopted to avoid recognition, or perhaps persecution.

During his early middle age, Nedeljko met and married an Italian duchess, Elena Flava, who he travelled to Italy with, along with Zorica. The family continued to mingle among the elite, seemingly having left their checkered past behind permanently. He and Elena had three daughters. Violetta, the eldest, married a Dutch Baron, Nikola Van Kampen, and lived in Holland with him until the Duchess died, upon which she moved back to Italy.

Zorica also married into nobility; to the English Baron Colin Cragg. Their daughter, Senka, was not close with her mother's side, but they visited her when she married into the Madswitte family. Upon the day of their wedding, Van Kampen went missing on the grounds, but his body was never found. Today, they have moved in with the Madswittes indefinitely.

Lord Muzuran is unkempt, unfiltered, and unhinged by many accounts. Some say he is naught but a harmless old man, but his off-putting demeanour does not garner him many friends. What has caused this drastic change? After all, he did rise from a forgettable working class Croatian to the husband of an Italian Duchess. He truly loves his daughters, though struggles to relate to them as their single remaining parent.

Yakova Muzuran
The baby of the Muzurans, and the most quiet. Yakova found their invitation here thoughtful, and looks favourably on Kelvin's new family. She is enchanted by the English moorland, and often takes rides on her horse to explore, even though she abhors the mud. She is intent on making friends with Julienne, but might feel something a bit more for her brother René.

Oksana "Baba Yaga" Ivanov
The eldest sister, some say it was she who began the cult, and that she is indeed the real Baba Yaga of legend, who fled from Russia to Europe after the townspeople were to burn her house on hen's legs to the ground. She has never talked in detail about her past, but dutifully acts as mother and grandmother to all, despite the menace of her nickname's sake.

Prudence "Morgana" Timms
Once the wife of a wealthy white merchant, until his death nearly two decades ago. Some say she was displaced and shunned from her home after he died, which was why she sought a better life for herself among the sisters, along with her son Dembe, who is an honorary male member. They only recently reunited after he passed through Madsmoor on business as a carpenter and house builder. He decided to stay with her and help the Sisters with their business and construction of their new home in Menka's Bog.

Aureliano Sandoval
Childhood friend of Émil Salazar and Gerónimo Valdez, who he met in Mexico. Their friendship grew over many stops to Mexico on his father's Spanish trading boat, under which Émil's estranged father was also employed. Aureliano helped Émil stow away on the ship, and they both lived in Spain for a brief time as teenagers before Émil moved to France. Aureliano later inherited his father's company as an adult, and on one stop several years ago on a trade with Eastern Canada, he found Meril Benbow and Jericho Levert on the dock. They begged him give them passage to Europe, and he obliged. While on the trip, he and Jericho had a brief affair. He has now found himself in Yorkshire, where he decided to vacation after his last trade in Kingston upon Hull. He has no idea that Émil, Meril, and Jericho now live here.

Valery Valdez
Sister of Gerónimo, friend of Aureliano and Émil. The four had many childhood adventures together, but eventually lost contact when the three men went off to Spain with her father's shipping company. Open to why she has come to Madsmoor, is she also a sailor/trader? Has she come to visit her brother who has come on holiday?
America Ferrera
I am looking for an assistant, I have two ideas in mind but they are just ideas and open to anything just about!

Jack Kelly
Jack is a childhood friend of Pony and has seen a gentler side that is only still revealed to him. They have laughs together and he spends all of his time helping him while trying to help keep him out of jail and try to get him to give up this life for the straight and narrow.
Hugh Grant
Or perhaps

Karen McBride
Karen is Pony's younger sister grew up with him and knew what he went through, even if she didn't agree the way he went about it. They are close and so it only made sense she left when he did. She tries to keep her brother from ending up in jail and is trying to get him to stop this way of life. She wants to live a normal life as well but would never be able to if she is worrying about Pony.

Emmeline Glass Vanhoy
Thomasina Glass's sister, who she grew up with in America, the children of carnival performers. The two came to England with Haruka Tachibana with the intent of touring their independent travelling show. But Emmeline gave up the nomadic tradition when she married a wealthy Dutch-Englishman named Cameron Vanhoy when she was twenty-five years old. Since then, she has not seen her sister. It is only now that she's come searching for her after Cameron died of consumption last year.
Sonequa Martin-Green
The Meijer family earned their last name on account of Zechariah’s father. A mayor in Bohemia (today called the Czech Republic), the patriarch of the family had high ambitions for his sons and stern expectations of his daughters.

Raised traditionally Jewish, most Meijers probably feel uncomfortable if they skip Shabbat – but beyond that, their level of observance is open.

Currently, Zechariah has 1 elder brother (with the brother being 2nd born), 2 older sisters, 1 younger sister (born after him, the 4th born), and 3 younger brothers.

Face claims are suggestions rather than set in stone – it is also possible there may be some bastards, known or unknown (of any race).

Ruth Meijer
Ruth is the firstborn, and her mother’s favorite. At her age she has most likely married and had children, though alternatively she might be widowed. Ruth herself has a lot of free time and vacations frequently to visit her siblings and extended family. Her relationship with their father is likely cordial, but strained, given how much control he had over all her major life decisions (what hobbies to partake in, who to marry, etc.). Boisterous and extroverted, Ruth would be known to German circles as a singer, harp player, or for some other musical aptitude that puts her up front.
Grete Forst

Chaim Meijer
Being the firstborn son, he has had a lot of expectations to carry. Probably in regular correspondence with Zechariah, who is sympathetic but hey – better Chaim then him! Went to a Bohemian academy, possibly furthering education in Germany. May or may not be married.
Adam Brody

Penina Meijer
Bookish and reserved, Penina would have married a library given the chance. She took the next best thing and married a gentleman of leisure who prefers traveling to staying home. Unfortunately for her, the husband occasionally drags her along on a trip – possibly to ‘ghost hunt’ in Moorland!
Olga Taussky-Todd

Nesah Meijer
Zechariah’s younger sister. He balked at the loss of attention with her birth. Whenever their father bemoans his sons falling short of his expectations, their mother is fond of saying “they take after you” whether it is true or not. They learned piano together, and Zechariah writes her frequently. Whether Nesah is an ‘old maid’ or married is currently open.
Alla Nazimova

Menachem Meijer
Old enough to feel like a challenge, Menachem probably got bullied by Zechariah and friends. Zechariah went to England specifically because Menachem had planned to study closer to home. There is some sibling rivalry here.
John Francis Daley

Noah Meijer
Young enough to consistently be in a different ‘age group’ than Zechariah, he might have benefited from him defending the family honor by making the lives of mean kids picking on Noah unpleasant. That aside, Zech probably mainly found him annoying as kids. Does Noah look up to him? Does he want to get one over him? I could see a one-sided rivalry playing out here.
George Gerschwin

Uriel Meijer
The only child to have had the home to himself for any extensive period of time, his mother probably tried a little harder to shove this one out of the nest so she could turn his bedroom into a sewing room. What with his eldest brother being well out of school by the time it was his turn to choose, he may or may not have caught the tail-end of Zechariah’s education if he was intent on following. Doing so would have been extra incentive for Zech to eventually catch a carriage to the middle of fucking nowhere.
