~* Owen *~
The narrator of Witcheskin. Owen is a Welsh trans man who was raised in England, so when he returns to Wales with his mother, Wenda, he feels a bit out of place. He looks back on his life in England with rose-tinted lenses though. In his past, anxiety, depression and struggling through his transition forced him to be dependent on Wenda despite his age, especially when his father inexplicably disappeared one day. Owen wants to be independent, though. He wants a job, a home of his own, to be a free man. He just has no idea if he’ll ever reach his goals or if he’ll ever find someone to love.
~* Maredudd *~
The love interest of Witcheskin. Maredudd had an unusual childhood, passed between several care-givers while his adoptive father, Morcant, was unable to provide the every day normalities of the average family. Born in Iran and raised in Wales, Maredudd considers himself a Welshman through and through. His skills as a Witch enable him to live a comfortable life, but until he meets Owen, it is a rather solitary one, though he’s certain there’s a soul-mate out there just for him. He is a gentle, thoughtful man who always tries to see the best in everyone.
