The only person he could rely on was his childhood friend, Stacie, but she became too caught up in her revenge to give him any attention. Feeling completely alone after his older brother was killed, Andy turned inward to seek out the murderers himself. He was almost killed, suddenly caught up in a gang war. Only then did Stacie come to save him. Through all those traumatic experiences, Andy knew he could never return to being a simple teenager.

Only, death wasn't the end for Edward. All the innocent people he murdered wanted revenge, a cry The Female Judge couldn't ignore. She cursed Edward to help people instead of harming them: by grasping their hands with his and filling their souls with a healing hope. In exchange, Edward would feel what they felt in the moment he grasped their hands. Not knowing if he was alive, or how long he'd be cursed, Edward begrudgingly commenced his mission. However, the things he experienced began to change his outlook on life. Maybe living wasn't as pointless as he thought.

Prince Vartan ruled the ancient superpower nation of Vitalonia 6,000 years ago. Through Mystic Art lore, he was considered the embodiment of love. In fact, Mystic Artists believed that he gave romantic love the color red and created the other colors of roses the world knew to date. But fact-based history considered nothing to be true of him except that he lived and that his nation was mysteriously destroyed. The truth was, that the prince's innocence and naivete did cause the entire nation to be destroyed overnight. He and his lover Imogen died, though she placed his soul into a ruby rose and catapulted the rose into The Void for safekeeping. That way, he could be reborn and his memories returned to him in the future, for the great evil that had destroyed their land would certainly return to try to kill again. In the present, Niles found a ruby rose that he picked up. Though he changed into Prince Vartan, his memories didn't return to him immediately. And when they did, the poor choices he made so long ago guilt Niles greatly. He grieves the eternal loss of Imogen and his devastating foolishness. If Niles can't reconcile both of his lives, he won't be able to stop that evil from 6,000 years ago. But even after peace is restored, who is Prince Vartan to anyone in the modern world?

Stacie's hot temper and professional shooting skills made her a force to reckon with. When she was young, her father encouraged her to pursue what she liked. He taught her to shoot and hired a matador to teach her to use a bull whip. As a young teenager, Stacie's father divorced her mother, ran for mayor and won, and then sent her off to a female boarding school. To say the least, Stacie immediately escaped that jail. Angry that her father split up with her mother, she goes to confront him, only to accidentally hear that he's involved in Mystic Artist human trafficking. Overwhelmed, Stacie decided that only complete destruction of his illicit business and utter public humiliation would suffice to cool her horror and rage. Stacie ended up applying her pent-up anger and rebellious streak to find all her father's business dirt and utterly destroy him. Though Stacie's heart was in the right place, her mission gave her tunnel vision. She almost lost her childhood friend Andy, literally and as a friend, when she ignored his grief over his older brother's death. Stacie cast her vengeful mission aside just in time, barely locating him before he was about to be killed. Though things ultimately worked out for her and her father was tossed in jail, Stacie didn't give up her mask. She merely turned her rage onto other criminals.

Angry, spiteful, hateful, sarcastic, sly, determined, uncaring, stubborn, weary
Valin walked around for the longest time with a massive chip on his shoulder. Born in 1767, cursed with immortality like his mother, Augusta, he pretended to dislike everyone and everything.

He eventually took on his mother's mission and found The White Prince. But finishing all of that didn't soften Valin's angry, jealous attitude. He hated Prince Vartan, a person his mother never stopped talking of. Her obvious love of such a stupid person caused Valin to feel like less of a son to her than the prince. Valin only helped his mother so he could get away from everything. Or so he told himself. Once their curse ends, though, Valin finds he isn't sure what to do with himself, and that his contrary disposition won't serve him any longer. Now he must find his own way.

Francois was a successful musketeer in the 1620s, much to his brother Jacques' envy. He was also the elder brother in a family of Mystic Artists.

Shirina supports her brother and tries to stay out of mischief, though she suffers from typical stubbornness that, oft and again, causes her to become an easy target for evil people that wish to harm Erik and his friends. After Erik's musketeer identity was publicly revealed, her life got even harder. But despite this, Shirina was determined to do the best she could. Her attitude continually becomes more and more an encouragement for Erik and a surprise to those around her.

Nate is Erik's best friend. At first more of a bully and a pest, the fashion-loving boy surprised Erik with his fortitude, kindness, and support. Two times (so far), he'd been wounded on Erik's behalf, or because of his friendship with Erik. Despite what he went through, Nate matured considerably, surprising Erik by his transformation from a more shallow-type, superficial friend to a deeply caring, brother-type friend. Nate promised never to betray or leave Erik, no matter what would happen. When Valin attacked Elaine on stage during the Winter Wonderland festival, Nate dove in to protect her, suffering a scar that ran down his face. But the scar being of no consequence to him, he continued to show solid optimism and trust for Erik.
