Castle life is crazy when it comes to being the King and Queen. So King Tyler appointed not only his most loyal of friends but his wife too. The head steward is Lord Tomas Masters and the Lady of Staff is Trilla Masters. She is also the number one Lady in waiting for the Queen.
Tomas – He is a cunning friend that keeps the King on his toes. When he isn’t required amongst the others in court he is off doing his King’s bidding. He does a great job keeping the castle together and keeping all staff happy. He works hand in hand with Demetri on a regular basis. Demetri is the King’s advisor.
Trilla – She is a strong independent woman that always needs to keep busy. Which is great for the Queen because she doesn’t want anything to do with managing the staff. Trilla keeps everyone working and sure supplies are kept maintained. She sees her husband on occasion but they both love what they do and pledged to their Queen and King.
