They are a musical group formed by the "lost" group of Carpathian children. They travel like old-fashioned minstrels or troubadours, from town to town, city to city, never employing outside musicians or technicians and always performing only their own songs. If anyone notices their not aging, they pose as their own ancestors.
*NOTE: This is classified as a character only because the band members are rarely apart. However, each band member has their own personality, and their own stories (with the exception of Barack and Syndil), and so they each have their own page.*
Barack: guitar player; can play almost any instrument
Darius: group coordinator and Desari's bodyguard
Dayan: lead guitar player, writer and composer of their songs
Desari: lead singer
Syndil: keyboard player and drummer; can play almost any instrument

Dark Celebration: The band is visiting the Carpathian Mountains for the Christmas party and perform for the crowd.
Dark Blood: The band is in the Carpathian Mountains still. Darius welcomes Gary into the family with Gregori, and all of the band members enjoy an improptu party that was started by Zev and Branislava.
