Good People
His family employed a gardener and his name was Wilfred. Whilst a cantankerous old man he and Belli formed a common bound as both were intelligent and talkative. Wilfred often talked of his extended family.

Darmus (assumed deceased)
Belli was a difficult son so when he expressed an interest in the magical arts his father paid a large sum to Darmus to take his son on as an apprentice. Whilst forced to clean, cook and generally look after Darmus he did also learn. He welcomed a life of toil after a life of idleness. Darmus took up a quest with his old adventuring party the red hand. Before entering the cavern of Yaak he asked Belli to hold onto his fragile goods and look after the camp. Darmus never return nor any of the party. Followers of the red hand took most of the items but the spells books were never taken. And so Belli learnt.

Aunt Hilda
Belli comes from a rich family but that wealth came from the death of Uncle Rupert who gave 5% to Belli’s father who started his business with the inheritance, 5% went to Auntie Gertrude and the rest went to his wife Aunt Hilda. Whilst Aunt Hilda hated most of the family she merely disliked Belli and so they formed a companionship. Aunt Hilda was very intelligent and from wise investments now has a considerable fortune.

Bad People:
Unknown (possibly Tom the thumb or Mad Dave)
Someone mugged and killed Uncle Rupert, Aunt Hilda never found out whom but there are some suspects.

John the bastard
A bully from Belli’s old prep school, Belli thinks their fathers often argued.

Mad Willy
Mad Willy was a mad old man who hung about outside Darmus’s residence. He has twice attacked Belli screaming something about a stone. He was a known bad egg.
