Born just after the Shadow Lord conquered Deltora, Lief, son of Jarred and Anna, grew up on the streets of Del City, breaking curfew and evading the Grey Guards. All that changed when Lief turned 16 and Jarred told him the incredible history of the heir of Deltora and presented him with the Belt of Deltora. Armed with only a sword and a magic cloak, Lief set out on a quest he never dreamed possible.
After the Grey Guards orphaned Jasmine at the age of seven, the Forests of Silence became her home. Used to living by her wits, she has a very strong connection to trees and animals – especially her constant companions, the raven, Kree, and the small furry Filli. Jasmine decided to join Lief and Barda’s quest after they found the first gem in her forest home.
Throughout Lief’s childhood, Barda secretly acted as his protector, saving Lief from the Grey Guards again and again. Barda was a Palace Guard when the Shadow Lord’s evil plans hatched. He escaped the Palace, and found safety disguised as a beggar, living outside Jarred’s home. Barda would prefer to search for the gems on his own, but he quickly comes to appreciate the aid and companionship of young Lief.
He is a knight-like warrior who is the guardian of the Lilies of Life and the Topaz, which is located in the hilt of his sword. When he engages in combat, he can use telepathy and magic to bend people to his will or mesmerize them.
