Characters
At the back of The Eagle's Wing  is a list of the characters, but somehow only the first page of the list ever made it into print. Here therefore is a complete listing of the characters from The Eagle's Wing and The Hour of the Fox, including some who are mentioned in the text but haven't appeared (yet).

“White”, “Green”, “Blue” and “Red” refer to the four factions in the Western Senate:

The Whites are supporters of the Maximian Dynasty, and are strong among the military and the adherents of the state religion of Sol.
The Greens are the “peace party” led by Ogilo, with supporters among the nobility of the Province and the merchants of Trebenna.
The Blues are the party of the old aristocracy and common people of the City, and of adherents of the “Lesser Worship” of the Slave.
The Reds are the “war party” led by the Placidi and associated with the great landowners of Sybaris and the south; they have links to the Eastern Empire, and are adherents of the “Greater Worship” of the Slave.
