In Seanan McGuire's Incryptid series, there are the Aeslin mice, who believe the Price/Healy men are their gods, and the women are their Priestesses. They give them all names (like the Arboreal Priestess (which I think is Verity), the Precise Priestess (Antimony), and the God of Chosen Isolation (Artie, maybe?)

The problem is, it's hard to keep track of all of these. What are all the known names of the Priestesses and Gods, and which character do they match up with?


I'm still reading through the short stories, so I may update this in the future, but I decided to do a full family tree with the names as far as I could sort them out. I need to collect all of the reference info, but let me know if I got anything wrong or missed anything important!

  • @Hamlet Anyone can edit, so they can add in things as they come across it. Also, as per this blog post, it's supposed to be used rarely. Also, there's not that many books/stories - I'm most of the way through them now, so it's going to be finished sooner rather than later. – Ash Jun 24 '17 at 19:55
  • So far this is good for books 1-3, and the free short stories from her site. Still have to go through any of the anthology-only or Patreon stories, but there's not a lot of those, and books 3-6. Shouldn't take me too much longer. – Ash Jun 24 '17 at 20:11
  • OK, sounds good. One other suggestion: have you thought about adding page numbers to this? (so someone could double check your work, or so if someone was interested in a particular character they could go back and read more, etc.) – user111 Jun 24 '17 at 20:40
  • @Hamlet that's hard when you're doing a lot of the reading on e-devices that don't have consistent paging. And most of the time, these are just offhand references to characters - the Aeslin mice use them in place of names, so it's generally referring to teh characters currently active in and around the story. – Ash Jun 24 '17 at 20:44
