Long: Moriya, Prince of Amber, son of Shizumaru and Rimururu, shown within his quarters in the Keep of the Five Worlds, the Golden Tree visible outside his window.

Long: One of the youngest and shyest of the Princesses of Amber, the daughter of Nagisa is caught here in an embarrased moment, having just been complimented on the spread of punch, cookies, and elemental cupcakes she has prepared for the Summer Festival picnic. Her emblem is a ladle and spatula, crossed over a skillet.
Long: In one of those twists that catch parents and families off-guard, Shinobu Minor ended up having one of those 'growth spurts' that caused her to spend 40 years in House Aesir of Chaos in a few days, growing up among the Valkyrie and killing frost giants, like the one pictured behind her in this image. Her emblem has changed, revealing her doubled heritage as both Chaosian and Amberite, daughter of the houses of Rebma and Ember.

Long: Jacqueline, daughter of Shaft and Kasumi, sits on her bed in Castle Amber, surrounded by plushies and photos of her parents as she experiments with a magical spell. Her emblem, oddly appropriate given the circumstances, is a combined comedy/tragedy mask.

His emblem is an open book with a rolled up explorer's whip behind it.
Long: Mitsune Butler, sexy shapeshifter of Amber and younger daughter of Travis the Librarian and Yumi the Court Arbiter of Etiquette, smiling smugly as she stands in a orange-trimmed green Cathayan dress with a tiger print upon it, holding a fox-head mask and a silver coin in her hands while a furry fox-tail peeks out from behind her dress.
