Belgariad Fancast- Drasnia
In the far reaches of the North, the nation of Drasnia stretches from the fens to the mountains of Gar Og Nadrak. Too cold for agriculture, the Drasnians cultivated a different skill- spying. In the capital city even the spies have spies, and little Drasnian birds keep their masters informed of everything, from Mallorea to Cherek to Riva.
King Rhodar (Mark Addy) was a portly man with taste for fine food and a head for strategy. He keeps Anheg in check, but excersizes no such authority over his nephew, Kheldar, or his lovely little wife, Porenn. Rhodar organizes the portage of the Cherek fleet, and lays out the plans for each battle fought between Good and Evil.
Porenn (Yvonne Strahovski), Queen Mother of Drasnia, is forced to take over the rule of her nation after the loss of her husband. Though smile and seemingly gentle, Porenn has the hard and cunning heart of a Drasnian, and uses her deceptively kind exterior to her advantage.
Prince Kheldar (Adrien Brody), the Guide, codename Silk, is a slippery little man with a big nose and an even bigger appetite for winning. One of the richest men in the entire world, he sees money as a way to keep score, and changes his face the way other men change clothes. Each of his characters is a fully realized personality, and each personality comes with his own wealth and his own enemies. It is Kheldar who guides Belgarath and Belgarion as they go on their question to meet the dread god Torak at the Temple of Night.
Margravine Liselle (Beth Riesgraf), also known as Velvet, also known as Huntress, is the premier spy in the whole of Drasnia, a sweet face with a wicked sense of humor. Velvet befriends the snake Zilth and seduces Prince Kheldar with her dimples and lightning fast wit. Companion to her Imperial Highness the Princess Ce’Nedra, Velvet finds herself dropped in the middle of an infamous company, and holds her ground. She never lets anything get between her and her desires.
