UNDERGROUND NPCs:The White Huntress
Meriel is known by most under the title of The White Huntress. Born Half Human and Half Elf, her unique heritage has drawn some limited scrutiny among other elf kind however Meriel has little contact with other members of that side of her culture. Although loosely connected to the KoTL and considered a 2nd lieutenant within their ranks, Meriel is not a resident of the Labyrinth or the Goblin city and as such her relationship with the KoTL is one of subjective participation.
Meriel is the recognized guardian of the the Enchanted Forest which presses up against the western boarder of the Labyrinth near the fire marsh (Domain of the Fire Gang or Wild Bunch) and the Bog of Eternal Stench.
Meriel's only concern is the protection of the Enchanted Forest and the rights of the people and creatures who live there. She cares nothing for the castle or the Labyrinth beyond its ability to negatively affect the inner workings of her domain and, as a result, has a tolerable relationship with Jareth and his subjects. Some speculation has suggested that perhaps Meriel was fathered by the Goblin King and it has been suggested that is the reason the White Huntress governs the Enchanted forest.
Whatever the case it should be noted that the Enchanted Forest is largely considered to be the home of vagabonds, criminals, and other magically inclined folk who have somehow managed to make life in the harsh forest and marsh lands workable. All in all, it is a highly dangerous place to travel in. Particularly if you are without the advantages of magic or other defenses. There are also quite a few wayward magicians, archaic wizard types, and even a few domestic witches. These magically inclined humans (races are often mixed in this sense) mostly don't like to meddle in the greater workings of the near by Kingdom. However some have been known to help or hinder travelers who come to them for information and aid.
Throughout the Underground there are many other patches of forest and other wild area's like the wilds near the Labyrinth. All of them seem to be connected and sometimes people who get lost within the wilds might find themselves unintentionally transported to some other land entirely. Magical folk such as Meriel seem to understand how this works better than others do and can use it to travel great distances in very short periods of time.
Meriel also keeps close tabs on the Wild Bunch who regularly cause disruptions within the forest and ill will between the outer wilds and the Goblin Kingdom.The Lord and Lady of Einde Street
No one knows exactly where they came from in the present sense although its said that Lord and Lady Claiborne's official family land holdings exist somewhere in the north of Scotland and are indeed quite legitimate if far from well known. What is known is that the couple is very reclusive. What isn't known is that they're not so much reclusive as hardly ever at home. In one way or another the Claiborne's are an example of a family who quite literally lives in two worlds. While they seem to have a more than opulent little castle in the British countryside, that castle seems to move quite regularly to different and usually scenic points in the Underground.
While they certainly look human enough their life blood is mingled and rooted decidedly in the world of Fairy.Iliad
Iliad is the unfortunate daughter of Lord and Lady Claiborne. Like her parents she is irrevocably connected the world of Fairy although she's not particularly happy about the fact. Especially due to a rather unfortunate characteristic inherited by a certain relative. As long as Iliad can keep her temper in check she can pass quite easily as a normal person. Sadly temperance is not the woman's strong point.
