Guild Hunter Character Guide

The world in which Nalini Singh’s Guild Hunter is set is complex.  Angels rule over humans and vampires, but the most powerful of them all are the archangels.  Beautiful.  Deadly.  Sometimes cruel.  Always unpredictable.  There are several different groups represented – the archangels, the angels, the vampires, and the Guild Hunters.

- The Cadre of Ten -

In the world of the angels, there are the elite ten.  Archangels of unimaginable power, they rule their territories and those within them with iron control.  The only being strong enough to stop an archangel is another archangel,  and when they clash, the fate of mankind hang in the balance.

Raphael, Archangel of North America                        Elijah, Archangel of South America

Michaela, Archangel of Central Europe                      Zhou Lijuan, Archangel of China

Uram, Archangel of Russia (deceased)                      Titus, Archangel of South Africa

Charisemnon, Archangel of North Africa                   Favashi, Archangel of Persia

Neha, Archangel of India                                         Astaad, Archangel of the Pacific Isles

- Former Cadre Archangels -

Caliane, former Archangel of Sumeria, now rules city of Amanat

Alexander, former Archangel of Persia, in the sleep of the Ancients

Antonicus, Nadiel

- The Seven -

They are called The Seven.  They are the seven extraordinary vampires and angels that have devoted themselves completely to the safety of Archangel Raphael.  They will destroy any threat to him, no matter the cost to themselves…

Dmitri – Vampire                                                            Aodhan – Angel

Illium – Angel                                                                Venom – Vampire

Jason – Angel                                                                Naasir – Vampire

Galen – Angel

- The Legion -

During a Cascade, Archangels experience wild and sometimes uncontrollable shifts in power. Some gain control over animals, some over the elements, but Raphael’s abilities are even more astounding. He called forth from centuries-long sleep a mythic force known as the Legion. They are a repository of vast and unequaled power…and serve Raphael without hesitation. They have slept since the time of the Cascade of Terror, and awake only when the Archangels of Life and Death battle. They have existed since before the dawn of mankind, their purpose to fight against the death that stalks the world.

    This is great! I think it would be good to add the secents of Raphael and the Seven though as it adds to the physical picture of them :)

  2. While I’m reading book 2, I keep thinking maybe I should take notes because I need to list everyone in the Seven. Then I quickly I sigh with much relief. I keep telling myself “I am quite sure K has details in her character guide.” Voila…here it is. These guides are sacred and a life saver. Thank you for them! :-)

    • kaleigha said:

      Thanks Lea. You have no idea how much I appreciate it when someone says they find one of these suckers useful.

  3. You know, I hate it when I go back to my comments and see that I didn’t edit my English well enough. Huge pet peeve of mine. It makes me inwardly cringe. Auto spell correct doesn’t help either. One time I typed “Nalini” and the auto spell changed it to “nailing” and I didn’t notice it time. OMG…..

    YES! I can’t say enough about these guides. I was careful, though, not to read the whole thing because I’m only on book 2, but you are right about all these characters…there are so many and hence, this guide is useful and justified.

    BTW, you know which book comes out tomorrow….annnnnnnd therefore, I shall be glancing at the character guide for that series before beginning that book. :-)

    XOXOXOX!!!! :-)

    • kaleigha said:

      Ha! The pressure! My copy is still in the mail, so you will be way finished Dragon Bound before I get it updated, so you should be spoiler free.

  4. I forget: what does the ‘P’ in “Elena P. Deveraux” stand for?

    • I always wondered that one myself, but I never was able to find out. As far as I remember, it was never stated what exactly the “P” stands for.

    • The P stands for Parker I think, after Jeffrey’s mother, Elena’s grandmother, ps i know your comment was 3 years ago but I thought I’d just let you know! :)

      • Yes, it’s Elieanora Parker Deveraux. Elizabeth Parker was her (unknown) grandmothers (fathers side) name (ref: Archangel’s Legion)

  5. Ooh. A mystery. We’ll keep an eye out for it!

    • Actually, there were a few mysteries. Like I could never find Deacon’s last name – I even emailed Nalini, and her assistant (Ashwini) said that it had not been revealed…as yet.

  6. The information you provide is awesome for budding fanfiction authors. Thank you so much!

  7. how old exactly is Lijuan?

    • It was never specifically said how old Lijuan is – I think it was part of her mystique, just like Calliane.

  8. and also. who are the 4 in the cadre of 10 that can make angel fire?
    How can angel fire be different from the power the that comes out from the 6?
    if angel fire can kill an immortal does that mean that the archangel’s that can’t form angel fire can’t kill other archangel?

    • We know Raphael can, and Uram could. Lijuan could, too. Neha cannot make angelfire, and I don’t think Michaela can either (but that could be just glamor). I don’t know if it went into the rest of the cadre enough to know who has angelfire. While Neha doesn’t have angelfire, her poison is supposedly just as deadly, so maybe each has their own form of protection that can hurt or even kill the other archangels.

    You need to make an update on the Hannah entry. In Archangel’s Storm we find out that Neha also has a consort named Eris, who primarily shows up in the book as being dead. So Hannah wouldn’t have been the only consort until Elana comes around.

    • Thanks, Dianna. I am hoping to get Archangel’s Storm info added soon, but I am way behind getting the guides updated (and Shadow’s Claim is out next week. Ugh). I will make the change, though.

    Kaleigha,

    How is the Guild Hunters and Psy-Changling series? Are they book s on torture or more kicka*s action? Any humor in both series?

    I am almost done with another series and don’t know if I want to start with Nalini’s books or Kresley Coles Immortals after Dark, lol. I have read too many series on tortured characters and need a break from it.

    • Hey Robin…well, that is tricky since you are choosing between my top two favorites of all time. I would say that the Immortals After Dark are not really lighter, but they do have more snark and action and attitude. The Psy/Changelings are very story driven and dramatic, and the Guild Hunter books are a bit darker and more feature more tortured characters. Personally, I don’t think you can go wrong with any of them at all, but for a change of place maybe go Immortals After Dark. Hope you like them!

  11. Hi
    In new to Nalini Singh’s books. Just finished her Psy/Changeling series and loved it. I didn’t know if I wanted to read her Guild Hunter Series but loved her writing so much that I just had to give it a try. OMG!!!! I LOVE IT. I started both series by taking notes until I ran across UR Character Guide. It is WONDERFUL! It is so helpful. Now all I have to do is sit back, relax and read. No more interruptions to jot a note down. Thank you, thank you soooo much for taking the time to make this Guide!!! I hope u will keep adding to it as the series continues!!!

    • kaleigha said:

      Hey Janice…thanks! Yep, I definitely plan on adding the info as they come out. I have a few more, too, if you are interested. There is one for the Psy Changelings, IAD, Elder Races, Breeds…that sort of thing. I find I read so much that keeping track of who’s who is getting to be a pain, and this was the only way I could figure it out.

      • Hi i am reading the guild hunter series again and my mum asked me what the two younger sisters names were so i looked up the series characters names and your link came up thank you so much i am deffinatly bookmarking this on my phone so i can keep up to date and also i found out the next book comes out next month in Australia cant wait to read about elana and raphial again and again

      • Hey Rachel – glad you found what you needed! Thanks for taking the time to drop a line, much appreciated.

  12. I love this! So great if you get confused with all the names and what not. Just curious why Nadiel isn’t among the former Cadre members?
    Great work with this site x

  13. Hello!
    Thanks for this page. Sometimes I feel completely lost in the “who is who” game. That’s when I visit, and look for whoever is a mystery for me.
    I have a question. There are two Augustus in the list. Can we not know, if they are the same?
    Once Augustus was mentioned in Galen’s book, that he followed Galen from Titus court, and the other mention of this name is a friend of Nimra’s (and has a castle of his own).
    In Archangel’s Legion Raphael says, that he will upgrade Augustus (from Titus’s court), and make him one of his most senior angels, like Nazarach. I think, they are one and the same person – cause it wouldn’t make sense, if there would be two Augustus, both of them with much power (and I think anyone, who has a castle has a lot of power).
    Do we have any clue on this question?
    (English is not my native, but I hope, my message made som sense)
    Love from Hungary
    Lyra

    • Hey Lyra…thanks for checking it out! I noticed the dual Augustus listings, and I did think about making them one. But unless I am completely sure, I usually leave them separate until it is for certain. Good catch, though.

  14. Hey,

    Really good list, very detailed. Just thought I should mention you said the archangels Zanaya, Antonicus and Qin on your main list of characters but you didn’t add her to the list of former archangel’s at the top alongside Alexander, Caliane and Nadiel. Just thought I put it out there.

    Thanks for the list :)
    Anna

  15. Hi,
    I love this website. It helps me very much.
    May you allowed me to translate it in German, my mother tongue, because I can’t find such a guide about the persons in German?
    It would be very nice from you.
    Hoping for an answer,
    Jiriso

  16. What a great site! Thank you, I love this series and reading about the characters is super awesome!

  17. Wow this must’ve been a lot of work! Thanks! One thing that’s got me confused though, is that you’ve got Elena listed as the first angel to be made in over 1500 years and I remember Raphael said in the books that she was the first angel to be made in “living memory” so are you just going by Raphael’s memory?

    I only wonder because I havent read the short stories that go with this series so now I’m all worried that I’ve missed something. Was there ever any mention of any other “made” angels in those stories?

    • Thanks! Yep, they do take a while to do, but they are quite fun, actually.

      To be honest, I don’t even remember now about the living memory part, since it was done a while ago. But usually I only take information directly from the source rather than infer, so I probably did read that directly in a story. Not sure which story it came from, though.

  18. I’m gonna make a wild guess about Raphael’s power that he will develop in the future from the legion which according to what you mentioned above… They are a repository of vast and unequaled power and They have existed since before the dawn of mankind… Now tell me what power has existed since before humans? that will be the 4 Fundamental Forces of Nature, Raphael probably already developed The Strong Force which binds neutrons and protons together in the cores of atoms and is a short range force aka his healing powers because our bodies are made of neutrons and protons and then we have Electromagnetic since in the last book he was creating a storm now we have the remaining two Gravity and Weak Force OMG if this theory is correct he will be the most powerful being in the planet

  19. This is awesome. So is the Psy/Changeling one :) good job. Question – are you going to update them for the new books?

    • Thanks! Yep, I do plan on adding the new info…but I have quite a few other guides that I am updating, too. I am just going down the list and adding the new info as I can. Takes a while, but still fun.

  20. Noticed on Caliane you put she’s said to be 100,000 years old, but the books claim that she may be 250,000. Just pointing it out. :3

  21. Hey, great work with the guide! I love this series and with so many characters it is easy to overlook some of the less prominent ones. I was wondering if you could answer one question, do you know if Gwendolyn was married to Jeffrey when he threw Elena out? I don’t think so, but I’m not entirely sure…

    • kaleigha said:

      Thanks! I don’t think it was ever stated, but from the rough timeline of the kids she must’ve been. Elena was disowned around 10 years ago, and Amethyst is 13 or so.
