I started off wanting to give you something different to look at in this post and, well… I went down a bit of a “rabbit hole.”

This was meant to be a character profile on the Zaragarian Emperor Tikhon. (He is a main character in Rada and the Zaragarians are the bad guys Isaura and her friends flee from in Altaica ) I ended up creating a family tree, probably giving myself a nightmare for future book! Will I have to find stories for all these folks? Some I’m sure will pop up in Rada’s sequel. So, it’s kind of family tree / world building / …. I don’t know what. 😊


I hope you find it interesting. I’ve made annotations.
