Florian von Piers: As a teacher and father figure, Wilhelm looks up to Florian with the highest admiration and respect. Though they did not properly meet or know one another very well upon Schmidt's hiring to the Black Company, they grew closer as the activity of their compatriots dwindled and the group all but died out. After the events of the Blight were put to rest, at least for now, Florian offered the young Anhalder quarter and opportunity to work as a squire. Wilhelm hopes one day to garner the same amount of prowess and acclaim as his mentor.

Gael von Dugald: The reason he is more than an poor street urchin in the first place, Gael gave Schmidt a chance to prove his worth and join up with the Black Company. There is very little the boy wouldn't do for this man.

Caerwyn Hawklight: At first meeting, Wilhelm though the boy from the Talon Isles as purely competition. After their initial duel, he grew fond of his comrade, who he now owes his very life to. Though the gap in their ages is small, Schmidt views him like an older brother.

Catherine: The southern-born girl was of very little interest to Schmidt at first meeting, though she came readily into his good graces and he now views the woman of Caerwyn's fondly. They have shared a few good laughs and drinks in their time.


Johanna Fischer: In Linlea, Schmidt found that the girl would often take route to avoid the obnoxiously proud presence that he oftentimes brings. In a petty attempt at bullying his countrywoman, he would give her discomfort by outright claiming her to be his love in public, berating Johanna for her shy nature. As time went on their back and forth came to a peak, wherein Wilhelm let his anger get the best of him and struck Johanna. After this event she revealed unto him a life changing secret; but even this did not stay his anger. He struck her once again, and only after did he seethe with enough regret to try and change his outright nasty and abusive attitude. The girl is now a romantic interest of his, though current and past events prevent him from making any significant advances on her. He is beginning to trust the girl, and hopes they will spend more time together.


Sigmund von Hallon: Though Schmidt is but a small fish compared to the Kronprinz, the boy is loyal to his country and its heirs.

'Yosef' Seeker: Another Anhalder that the boy happened upon in his time residing on Linlea, a barely older Ranger who spends his time with the Kanes. Wilhelm thinks him to have a sharp wit, but has absolutely no trust for his countryman due to his circle of associates.

Virnaak: A Moor that Schmidt learned to tolerate. Though they were certainly not friends, Schmidt found that their similarly crude humor could sway the pair to stand each other for a time. He has not seen the pearly-white toothed vagrant in some time.

Reynard of the Storm: The teenager knighted by the famed Brennard Westmay is seen as a loose-cannon and humorous fellow, one to whom Schmidt would make use of a blade next to any day. Schmidt saved the boy from potential imprisonment and execution in Linistel, leaving the two on good terms.


Guinevere: Sister to Lord Gael, the boy owes her a degree of courtesy, though she does not hold him in such a neighborly regard.

Jocasta Vita: A strange girl who seems to be pugnacious toward Schmidt. For now, the young Anhalder will not be party. He sees no need to escalate the situation.

Otto von Gottfried: Another adolescent from his home region, Oren, Wilhelm only wishes he wouldn't waste his potential under such distasteful banners.

Kitrana Dawnriver: A Dame who he's to one day see in single combat, as he does not have respect for her ability as a warrior. Otherwise, he does not mind her barside company, but has no special interest in her.


Aleksei: From different sources, Schmidt has learned this man to be of a faction he has no love for, and offers the wasteman good riddance in his graves. Wilhelm wishes he could have delivered the finishing blow, but duly notes him as a worthy opponent.

The Kanes: Distrust and dismay. He sees the family as a collective of disloyal and self-serving people, and pities those around them.

The Varyns: From what he has learned in speaking with his confidants, he does not wish ill for or feel alienated by Raalvara nor James, but does not think them to be in the most stable state of mind.





Oskar: An older boy who tried his best to keep Schmidt's head on straight, but was a victim of hubris himself. Oskar assisted the younger brother-in-arms in learning commonspeak, wielding blades, and general life lessons. He hoped they would face many-a-battle in the same column. Now he only has a vague and fond memory of their short-cut time.
