Characters

  • Tom is the main protagonist of the series; a hero and the only son of the legendary Taladon Swift, a Knight of Avantia. Tom inherited his great courage and valour from his father who disappeared mysteriously when he was a baby, leaving him to be brought up by his uncle and aunt in the village of Errinel. At the start of the first series of novels the King of Avantia, King Hugo, invites Tom to embark on a quest to free the kingdom from the evil curses placed upon the Beasts that protect it. With his trusted companion, Elenna, Tom travels across Avantia, guided by a magic map. Accompanied by Storm, a jet-black stallion and a faithful wolf named Silver, the two of them face the biggest adventures of their lives. Together they set out to defeat the evil wizard Malvel and free the kingdom. In every Beast Quest book published to date, Tom declares his specific mission by proclaiming his catchphrase "While there's blood in my veins!"
  • Elenna is Tom's best friend. She is strong and courageous and able to think quickly under pressure. After her parents died in a fire, Elenna was sent to live with his mean-spirited uncle and aunt, where Silver was her only friend. Armed with a bow and a quiver of arrows, Elenna is an expert archer and ably assists Tom on his quest. Elenna is the target of most of the unfortunate events in Beast Quest. Elenna turns against Tom in the Combat Arena in the book "Mortaxe the Skeleton Warrior." They were both bitten by the Avantia hounds in the book "Ravira Ruler of the Underworld," but Elenna still helps Tom to fight off Ravira and save the other people, including his own father, Taldon. Some people say that Elenna has romantic thoughts for Tom. Elenna has saved Tom's life as many times as he has saved hers. She must face her greatest fear, fire, in "Hellion the Firey Foe." Her arrows never miss and Elenna is always ready to help Tom on a new Quest.
  • Storm is Tom's trusty steed on his Beast Quests. He is a black stallion with an arrow shaped white mark on his forehead. He is brave and fast, and understands exactly what Tom needs him to do. He slows down at the slightest pull on his reins and speeds up the second Tom touches his sides with his heels. He was given to Tom by King Hugo of Avantia, so as to help him on his Quests.
  • Silver is Elenna's wolf friend. Having found him injured during a hunting trip, Elenna nursed him back to health and they've been best friends ever since. Silver is as fast as the wind and able to cover large distances easily and quickly. He has an excellent sense of smell and can sniff out danger from afar.
  • Aduro (sometimes known as Aduro the Good) is a powerful wizard who serves King Hugo of Avantia. He was once captured by Malvel the Dark Wizard and rescued by Tom. He also provides Tom with a map of the Forbidden Land, which constantly pinpoints the location of all the Beasts hidden in the Forbidden Land. He also underwent a magical transformation cast onto him by Malvel: this turned him into a savage man known as Aduro the Bad. The spell was later lifted when Tom defeated Arax the Soul Stealer. Avantia's parallel land, Tavania, also has a good wizard, called Oradu (an anagram of Aduro). He was also bewitched by the pirate king in series 9 as he was too old and could not defend himself from the magic of the pirate king.
  • Malvel the Dark Wizard is the main antagonist of the Beast Quest series. He encounters Tom many times and continuously casts spells which summon various powerful Beasts, as well as enchanting many Beasts with various objects. Aduro notes that his power grows weak after being repelled three times.He was then captured by Tom.
  • King Hugo is the king of Avantia. He sets Tom on his quests to free the Beasts and save the kingdom.
  • Velmal is the Dark wizard of Gwildor. Tom finds out that Velmal has his mother under a spell. Velmal is an anagram of Malvel. Velmal was killed by Freya (Tom's mother) in Book 36 (Vespick the Wasp Queen) by getting cut right through the waist.
  • Marc is Aduro's apprentice. Like Aduro, Marc is able to send images of himself to help Tom in Series 6 (The World Of Chaos). Unfortunately, in The Lost World (Series 7). Malvel kills Marc with an evil spell which drains away his magic then kills him.
  • Taladon is Tom's father and also the Master of the Beasts. He was kidnapped by Malvel when Tom was born. He returns as a ghost in Series 4, and asks Tom to find all six pieces of the Amulet of Avantia so he could take physical form again.
  • Freya is Tom's mother and also the Mistress of the Beasts. When Tom and elenna travel to Gwildor in Series 5, Tom finds out that she is his mother and Velmal is controlling her. She gets kidnapped and brought to Kayonia in Series 6 and in Series 7 she believes the Tavanian counterpart of Taladon (Dalaton) is Tavania's Master of the Beasts. She gets kidnapped again in Series 8 along with Silver.
  • Sanpao the Pirate King is the main antagonist of Series 8. He sends the various Beasts to kill Tom, and tear Avantia's capital city apart.

Petra is Malvel's apprentice. She appeared in Mortaxe the skeleton Warrior and the ninth series as an antagonist. She also appeared in Raksha the Mirror Demon as her mother, Kapra, had awakened the beast.

Lands

The fictional world of Beast Quest is divided between several kingdoms.

  • Avantia is the setting of events occurring within Series 1, 2, 4, 8 and 10 of the Beast Quest novels. Frequently attacked by the wizard Malvel, Avantia is segregated into both inhabited and uninhabited geography with areas such as the Forbidden Land located beyond a dividing wall. Avantia has good Beasts, that protect the land, called Ferno, Sepron, Arcta,, Tagus, Nanook, and Epos. The Forbidden Land is in Avantia but is cut off by a giant wall because it is haunted by Ghost Beasts. It is the place that Tom ventures to in Series 4 to fight Nixa, Equinus, Rashouk, Luna, Blaze and Stealth (Stealth and Blaze are the only Beasts fought outside the Forbidden Land).
  • Gorgonia is the kingdom ruled by Malvel in series three. He rules from a castle located in the Western City. Gorgonia is a dark, ruined kingdom where the native population is kept to a low standard of living by the dictator. During the events of the books there existed an organized underground rebellion opposed to Malvel's rule. Gorgonia was haunted by six Beasts, each of which possessed a Magic Jewel.
  • Gwildor is Avantia's twin land. It was introduced in series five. Like Avantia, Gwildor has six good Beasts. It is also home to the Mistress of the Beasts, Freya, later revealed to be Tom's mother. Gwildor was terrorised by Velmal, the "parallel" wizard of Malvel. It has guardians called Krabb, Hawkite, Rokk, Koldo, Trema and Amictus.
  • Kayonia is another kingdom terrorised by Velmal in series six. He created six evil Beasts and turned the people of Kayonia against their warrior queen, Romaine.
  • Tavania is a kingdom parallel to Avantia, seen in series seven. Malvel the Dark Wizard has taken over this planet, and sent six Beasts to exile in this kingdom, namely Convol, Hellion, Krestor, Madara, Ellik and Carnivora. It is also the main kingdom of series eight, where Freya and Silver are trapped.
  • Seraph is a mysterious realm in series 9 which has the Eternal Flame that Malvel tries to use to take over all the kingdoms and is patrolled by six evil beasts called Ursus the Clawed roar, Minos the Demon Bull, Koraka the Winged Assassin, Silver the Wild Terror, Spikefin the Water King and Torpix the Twisting Serpent. Silver the Wild Terror patrolled only in one book then he is free.

Items

  • Tom's Shield has been given six magical tokens from the Beasts in gratitude from freeing them in Series 1. They are: Ferno's scale , Sepron's tooth, Arcta's eagle feather, Tagus' horseshoe fragment, Nanook's bell and Epos's talon.
  • The Golden Armour has six magical pieces—the helmet is shaped like an eagle's head, and allows people to see in far away places, the chainmail gives people more courage, the breastplate gives people extra physical strength, the leg armour gives people the ability to run really fast, the gauntlets give people extra skills with a sword and the boots make people able to jump really high.
  • The Magic Belt has six jewels that give Tom an extra ability. The red ruby makes him able to communicate with good Beasts, the green emerald heals broken bones, the blue sapphire gives people perfect memories, the white diamond enables people to split with their shadow, the orange amber gives people sharper battle skills and the purple amethyst can create a portal to avantia.
  • The Amulet of Avantia has six pieces guarded by the ghost Beasts. It restores Taladon, Tom's father, to life, although it takes the

abilities of the Golden Armour from Tom for Taladon's use, as the armour's rightful owner is Taladon.

  • The Cup of Life is a magical item that Malvel tried to use to bring his powers back. Tom later uses it to bring Elenna back to life after being infected with poison.
  • Freya's items - a pearl, a ring, a pair of gloves, scales, a mirror and a telescope have abilities that Tom uses to free the good Beasts of Gwildor. The pearl let people breathe underwater, the ring lets people blend into the background when standing still, the gloves can stick to surroundings because they are made of spider webs, the scales let people keep their balance on ice, the mirror burns holes using sunlight and the telescope can see camouflaged things.
  • The Potion Ingredients guarded by Velmal's Beasts can make a potion that cures Freya's poison that Velmal gives her. They are the Black Cactus, the Jade Ring, the Red Jewel, the Vines, the White Flower and the Wasp Sting.
  • Oradu has six materials he uses for magic that Malvel stole when he took over Tavania. They are his robe, his hat, his staff, his falcon, his cauldron and his spell book. Each one makes him stronger for the fight with Malvel in series seven.
  • Pirate Tokens - Tom acquires an item from every Beast he defeats: Balisk's Claw, to use as a vicous boomberang. Koron's Fang, to paralyze his foes. Hecton's Trident enables him to cling to mountains. Torno's scale, which gives off heat. The Eye of Kronus, to see the future and a Bone Star from Bloodboar's armour, to use as a shrukin.
  • Aduro's tokens are given to Tom and Elanna to help them in series nine. They are a small harp to play which will subdue Ursus with its music. A jewled harness. Jade whistle shaped like a eagle. A phial with a potion in it to turn Silver back to normal. A chainmal. And a knife that can pierce Torphix's armour.

He lurks among the caves of Avantia, swooping down on his victims and smothering them with his wings. Also, using his whip, he can steal someone's soul, and create an evil version of that person from their soul, like when Tom had his soul turned into evil Nemico, and Aduro's transformation into Aduro The Bad…

4. Kragos and Kildor - the Two-Headed Demon: This two-headed demon is doubly terrifying – it can split in two for a dual attack!

9. Grashkor the Beast Guard [5] Tom's best friend, Elenna, has been kidnapped by evil Malvel! Grashkor the Beast Guard is holding her prisoner in his dark prison - the Chamber of Pain! Can Tom rescue her from Grashkor's deadly clutches? (Out January 5,2012)



Note: There are 9 bumper editions and 10 series (sets). There are less bumper editions because the fourth series does not have a bumper edition. However Sephir the Storm Monster is a flip over book that is sometimes thought to be series 5's bumper edition with Kragos & Kildor being series 4's.

One-offs

1. Sephir the Storm Monster: Once a generation, a battle takes place for the Book of Worlds. The Book contains all the secrets of Avantia, and must never fall into the hands of evil Wizard Malvel. Tom takes up the challenge, but Malvel doesn’t play fair... First he sends a fearsome Super-Beast, and then a whirling tornado that destroys everything in its path – Sephir the Storm Monster!
