Every time we begin a Magic: The Gathering adventure in a new fantasy world, we try to populate it with interesting and original heroes and villians to make the new mythos come alive and bubble with energy. Today we take a look at some of the creative characters we've come up with for the Lorwyn world, which is likewise the setting for the upcoming Morningtide expansion.

Kithkin: Gaddock Teeg

Gaddock Teek is a Kithkin humanist, satirist, lecturer and writer. Teeg is most noted for his famous novels as well as his quotations. During his lifetime, Teeg has been friends with warlords, artists, leading artificers and Lorwynian royalty. Teeg enjoys immense public popularity, and his keen wit and incisive satire earned him praise from both critics and peers.

Merfolk: Sygg, River Guide

Sygg is the frontman and long-suffering manager of the Merrow Lanes. Whereas Sygg is a happy, perky and somewhat avuncular character elsewhere, on the Lanes he tries to keep control of the varied, outrageous, kinetic merfolk characters (and his temper), as well as keep the non-merfolk guests happy and secure.

Goblins: Wort, Boggart Auntie

Wort is a Goblin auntie who attracted realm-wide attention for her extended demonstration at a camp outside a Gilt-Leaf ranch garnering her both support and criticism. Two years later, Wort officially ended her involvement on the political front lines, saying, "I am going to go home and be a mother to my surviving younglings and try to regain some of what I have lost."

Giants: Brion Stoutarm

Brion Stoutarm, commonly referred to by his surname, is the best friend and former roommate to the giant Kiel. He can frequently be seen engaging Kiel in childishly competitive games. Stoutarm is normally the victor of these games, and he enjoys rubbing it in Kiel's face. He normally does this by making Kiel say "I'm your biatch" after Kiel loses.
