The Defenders

The kingdom of Avantia depends on the courage and heart of Tom, his best friend Elenna, and their companions Storm and Silver. Will they prevail over danger and evil? And will you join them on their Quest?


Born in the village of Errinel, Tom is the only son of the legendary Taladon the Swift. Tom has inherited great courage and valour from the father who left him as a baby to be brought up by his uncle and aunt.

The king of Avantia invites Tom to embark on a quest to free the kingdom from the evil curses placed upon the beasts that protect it. With his trusted companion, Elenna, Tom travels across Avantia, guided by a magic map.

Accompanied by Storm, a jet-black stallion and a faithful wolf named Silver, the two of them face the biggest adventures of their lives.

Together they set out to defeat the evil wizard Malvel and free the Kingdom of Avantia. Does Tom have what it takes? While there’s blood in his veins, he’s determined to find out.


Elenna is Tom’s trusted companion. She is strong and courageous and able to think quickly under pressure.

After her parents died in a fire, Elenna was sent to live with her mean-spirited uncle and aunt, where Silver was her only friend.

Armed with a bow and quiver of arrows, Elenna is an expert archer and ably assists Tom on his Beast Quest.


Storm is Tom’s trusty steed on his Beast Quest. He is a jet-black stallion with a white mark shaped like an arrowhead between his eyes.

He is brave and fast, and understands exactly what Tom needs him to do. He slows down at the slightest pull on his reins and speeds up the second Tom touches his sides with his heels.


Silver is Elenna’s wolf friend. Having found him injured during a hunting trip, Elenna nursed him back to health and they’ve been best friends ever since.

Silver is as fast as the wind and able to cover large distances quickly and easily. He has an excellent sense of smell and can sniff out danger from afar.
