--Kerouac (II)

Garin

Gdeon

The son of Shilree and the Ralchar-doppelganger, he was given into the custody of Rhynwa and Maxwell Silverhammer and travelled for several months with the Sewer Tour. He showed strange powers and an accelerated rate of growth, due to the fact that he was actually the incarnation of the dragon avatar. Upon learning his true nature, he left Ataniel to learn to understand his position in the world.
--Who's Who V1

Other than the fact that I named him Kyv, I prefer not to talk about this.
--Shilree

Gehenna, King

--Who's Who V1

Gem of Dimensions

After the Gem of Souls was deactivated by Lilith, it was turned into the Gem of Dimensions somehow by Luthien the Dead, who used its necromantic energy to power the undead Shilree B. The pulging jewel from the Dead's timeline remains in the still-existing Shilree B's eyesocket.
--Who's Who V2

Gem of Souls

The soul-trapping artifact that was once used to contain the Ti'Ar'Na, later Trillarillia. After Lilith removed and destroyed Trill's soul, the gem's soul-stealing powers were ruined. It has since gotten imbued with some kind of necromantic energies and is known as the Gem of Dimensions.

--Flicker

--Shilree

Gila

A distant planet populated by beholders, illithids, and all manner of reptilian creatures.
--Who's Who V2

Deceased Gnartriech

A renegade giant who worked with the Web to mastermind the assassination attempt of Queen Elena.
--Who's Who V1

Gnartriech was an evil giant troublemaker. Janther killed him.
--Threnody

He turned evil when he opened a Big + Tall Men's store in Edimon and couldn't understand why he got no business. How dumb is this guy? He once saw a sign that read "Wet Floor" and sure enough, he did.
--Schneider

Killed in combat.
--Hillary Sturoster, filing clerk of Annwyn

Godmaker Rings, the

Ancient artifacts with the power to elevate mortals to godhood, the Godmaker rings imbued their wearers with divine power a bit at a time through healing magics triggered by damage to the wearer, up to and including full resurrection. They were also very stylized; the one worn by Khyrisse (which ultimately, after a good half-dozen deaths and a lot of collateral damage, did render her fully divine) turned her skin to alabaster and her color scheme to white, burgundy, and black.
--Who's Who V2

I don't know who made these, nor how many of them are still in existence, if any; Eric seems to have gotten his from Magnate, several decades ago. They put you through hell in an effort to see if you have what it takes to be a deity. The worst part about these rings is that you aren't allowed to know what's happening to you until it's all over. Then (if you haven't become a whimpering pile of jelly, of course), you can either become a god, or you can find some other hapless fool and do the same hideous thing to them that someone did to you.
Bitter? No, why do you ask?
--Khyrisse

And the ironic thing is, it upset her even more when she had to stop being a god.
--Flicker

Deceased Good Blue Fairy

I personally feel that the addition of the phrase "fairy-nailing wacko" to the general lexicon does not balance out the fact that I now have to do my own dishes.
--Clint the Enchanter

Well, at least now we know how many nails it takes to hold a fairy up on a Trade gate.
--Shilree

Very funny, Shilree. Let's see how many nails it takes to hold a Diari illusionist up on the back of a moving Trade Carriage.
--Khyrisse

Actually, the phrase "fairy nailin' wacko" can be used as an adjective as well as a noun. Ex:
Gwen: I tellya, people are starting to act mighty strange.
Tim: How strange are we talking about?
Gwen: They've just gone fairy-nailin' wacko!
--Stuart Jones, noted linguist

Excuse me. I do NOT use the phrase "fairy-nailing wacko". In fact, I rather resent it.
--Gwenllian, half-fey Uncrucified Hero

Died during the Madness.
--Hillary Sturoster, filing clerk of Arawn

Gordon Cole

Noyarc's supervisor in the LSRIC.
--Who's Who V1

Good heavens, why is this guy shouting? I don't want to be within 20 miles of a chat between him and Quell.
--Schneider

Gordon Farstalker ap Luthien

Luthien and Rhynwa's son. In the alternate future, he grew up to be a bard--but the alternate future sucked.
--Threnody

Gordon is a very bright, inquisitive, charming boy. (I think he's a lot like Luthien was as a child, but don't tell him I said so. *grin*) "Stalker" will probably grow up to be a bard in this timeline, too--he has a perfectly wonderful voice.
--Khyrisse

Deceased Gordon Tweedy

Gordon Tweedy was Lian's husband before she became the Sunfighter. Tragically, her psychic block included him, and he followed her around sadly for a couple of months trying to persuade her that he really was her husband until she was killed. Gordon himself was murdered shortly thereafter.
--from the Chronicles of the Sunfighter

Murdered.
--Hillary Sturoster, filing clerk of Annwyn

Grace Averdale

Chief of Police in New Trade. Her husband, Cal, is a glassworker. Grace is a distant cousin of Jarth's, with a broad Javinian face, dark curly hair, and an easy gait.
--Who's Who V2

Graceland

Grayson Mer

She was a planeblazer. She and the last Ebreth Tor escaped to Limbo together when they were good. I don't know what happened to the new Grayson. A Death Slaad attacked us and we were separated.
--Ebreth Tor

Great Barren, the

The cracked-earth desert north of Cynystra but south of Shikintu, surrounding the Doomrift, where the Monster Nations known as the Doomlands are. (Click here for a map.)
--from the Reference Almanac of Ataniel, 813

Great Diarian Wall, the

The wall was started centuries ago as part of the Diari "Exodus Inward". Originally the wall was planned to surround both Eastern and Western Diari. However, I guess Eastern Diaria decided that the Westerners weren't pure enough, so they left us out and let us get taken over by Cynystra. Let me tell you, someone is going to pay.
--Shilree

Grendel

Noncorporeal divine spirit of focused aggression, often invoked by Khyrisse, worshipped by Kingfisher.
--Who's Who V2

Greymalkin

Grimthane Darkcloak

I should have known something was up with him. What kind of name is "Grimthane Darkcloak"? What's his girl friend's name, Carolyrrya Hawkwing?
--Ebreth Tor

Grisham
