The Shepherd’s Crown Persons – Chronologic

I thought some of the other Discworld books had a long list of persons, but I think The Shepherd’s Crown list of persons takes the cake. This is the chronological list. You’ll find the same in alphabetical order here.

Daniel Aching – Ancestor of Tiffany who found the Shepherd’s Crown.

Tiffany Aching – Young, but very adept and mature witch, who always seems to be confronting winter.

Five Discworld novels chronicle her adventures:
