Are you going to read an Enemy chapter for Twig? Here are voice samples from the characters we’ve met so far. I care an awful lot about consistency, so I expect new readers’ character expression to match the ones that have already been released.

Characters are listed approximately in order of appearance.

The Lambs

Sylvester, our “hero.” Nasal enough to be a little annoying, but not in a way that makes listeners want to turn off the podcast. Sounds like an adult speaking with a child’s voice. Cocky.

No sample. Just listen to any non-interlude episode.

Jamie, his best friend. Shy and gentle, and a little effeminate. Tries to keep from getting into fights and to keep the others from fighting.

Jamie – from arc 5 chapter 4

Helen, a femme fatale in training. A chirpy voice with an audible smile. Sounds like she will grow up to be Marylin Monroe, but in the meantime she’s just tickled pink to dissassemble your ribcage.

Helen – from arc 5 chapter 4

Lillian, a good doctor. A young girl with a high-pitched voice. I imagine she sounds like a ten-year-old Kristen Chenoweth.

Lillian – from arc 3 chapter 2

Gordon, the golden boy. A masculine voice, but still a child. Sounds the most like an adult even though he isn’t one. Would grow up to be Chris Evans.

Gordon – from arc 6 chapter 1

Mary, a girl who likes knives. A low-voiced female child. Unsure of herself unless she’s exercising her true talent, which is fighting.

Mary – from arc 4 chapter 1

Ashton, a little boy who doesn’t understand people very well but can manipulate their emotions.

No sample. Listen to arc 7 chapter x – enemy.

Duncan, a young man trying to become a professor.

First voice appearance in arc 10 chapter 3. See also arc 11 chapter x – lamb.

Evette, the Lamb who never was.

Evette – from arc 14 chapter 8


The Duke, a powerful noble.

The Duke – from arc 6 chapter 10

The Infante, an even more powerful noble.

The Baron and the Twins, a sadistic family of nobles.
