Ballygally's younger cousin, and someone he struggles to understand. He was once at odds with Hewie's lackadaisical nature, but it took being lost overseas for many seasons for Bally to finally loosen up and match Hewie's stride. He's determined to utilize Hewie's odd battle strategies as a teaching point for Gale, but that's only if Hewie is willing to cooperate.
Hewie is Svaneholm's little champion. Hewie may be lost in his way, but should he return to his family, his father will greet him with open arms. He has a hard time viewing Hewie as anything but an infant, though, and sometimes cherishes the days gone by.
Samael was introduced to Susano through the likes of Thor and Zagreus. His persistent and positive attitude eventually helps lift Susano out of a self-isolating funk, and causes his reinvention process to begin...
While not quite as enamored with Samael as Thor, Zagreus does find his positivity just as uplifting. They're of the same opinion that, at some level, at the very least, mortalfolk, in spite of their flaws, are worth examining, worth redeeming, and worth saving.
One of Anansi's oldest friends is Samael. When the convergence first began, Anansi scoured the globe in search of knowledge and truth. Eventually, his exploration and discoveries brought him and Sam together. Over the course of an eon, they've maintained their connection, and have enjoyed each other's company.
