Darcy Saga Characters

The number of characters who inhabit the pages of the Darcy Saga began with a large amount (Thank you, Jane Austen) and the count has continued to increase due to my own inventing of new characters. This page is a helpful list of the central players in my novels, with dates and places of residence noted for further enlightenment. Each novel has a separate list with new characters introduced within that novel.

All dates are based on the time I have set for The Darcy Saga, which revolves around the November 28, 1816 wedding date for Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet.


To visualize each character as I do, visit my extensive Darcy Saga Image Gallery.
