The Page is concentrated on the paper. She have a good friend in the dragon because he is helping her. They seems to do things together.

The Knight look like he is day dreaming and seems to be easily distracted. There are a lot of watery symbol on him. Maybe he is like a fish in the water, gliding though the events.

The King seems to be some one with values and principles. There are things that seems important like friendship. He is patting the lizard-dragon as if asking for support and companionship.
