Tanith Low from Skulduggery Pleasant

Tanith Low is a Hidden Blade magic user skilled in combat, stealth, walking on walls (and sitting on ceilings), and swordsmanship. She’s an ally of Skulduggery Pleasant and the honorary big sister of Pleasant’s apprentice, Valkyrie Cain. It is, in fact, Tanith, who first inspired Valkyrie to pick her name after casually using the phrase “raising Cain” (making trouble).

Valkyrie Cain from Skulduggery Pleasant

Valkyrie Cain is Skulduggery Pleasant‘s young protege in elemental magic. Born Stephanie Edgley to a fairly average Irish family, she took on a new name inspired by the phrase “raising Cain” (making trouble). She accompanies her mentor throughout an ongoing series of adventures (chronicled faithfully by the incomparable author Derek Landy), spanning her early adolescence through adulthood. Her costume is specially made by a magical tailor who designed it to be highly durable and protective — a necessity in Valkyrie’s field.

Skulduggery Pleasant

Skulduggery Pleasant is a living skeleton with an arsenal of elemental magical powers up his sleeve. How exactly he got to be this way remains a mystery, especially to his apprentice Valkyrie Cain, but there’s enough trust between this dynamic duo to embark on an ongoing series of supernatural adventures. Vampires, inflatable soldiers, and even a close friend’s evil alter ego are hardly obstacles to this powerful sorcerer.
