Hello! The Messenger is of course the Bazaar. The Phoenix is an untroubled star, busy at the melodramas of the High Wilderness.. The Owls are the Masters; the Dragons, the enforcement-emanations of Law; the Ravens, the lesser incarnates of the Liberation in the days before there was war in Heaven. Time is (as Aulus Gellius knew) the father of Truth, but is also of course in turn the child of Law. I’ve probably missed a couple, but I don’t have the text to hand, and it was a very broad question. 🙂
Hello there, I’d like you to publish the answer (after all, it’s quite cool), although I believe you’ve missed the Hunter (which is understandable, since it’s only mentioned here:
“The Dragons who bring the Messenger to justice are seven in number. One carries Time gored on a horn. Another has the Hunter carelessly slung over one huge shoulder”).
I did! As well as the Nimbus, and the Mountain. But you have the major characters.
