The Story's Characters

The story has many characters. The following list represents a selection of the key characters (more of them and further details can be found in the book’s VISUAL GLOSSARY).

John McCalvin

He is an ordinary young Deaf Londoner who inadvertently becomes “The One” to use the power of the Talisman of Signs to enable the survival of Deaf people, sign language and the secret mystical place: all at war with Milan.

Ricard Cox

John’s mysterious Deaf accomplice who has immense strength and is highly skilled in martial arts. He also has a “personal issue” with his foe, Redlips.

Eliz’ba

The High Prophetess of the secret mystical place that is at war with Milan. She provides valuable interpretations of the prophecies she receives from a god-like entity.

Redlips

The notorious 6’ 4” super-sexy female villain who, like Ricard Cox, has immense strength and is highly skilled in martial arts. Her “personal interest” in Ricard is highlighted by her chillingly unnerving smiles. A woman not to be messed with!

Skin and Chub

The “Laurel and Hardy” villains accompanying Redlips. Whilst they carry out their work with ruthless commitment, they can also be quite comical in their own way.

Mary Rose Owens

The world’s oldest living woman whose age is beyond comprehension, but the fate and survival of Deaf people, sign language and the secret mystical place rests on her hanging onto her remaining life to deliver a message...

Antonio

A young and seemingly innocent 19thC Italian with a unique gift that will lead him to the dark and obsessive world from which he plans to seal the fates of Deaf people, sign language and the secret mystical place.
