Lena Duchannes played by Alice Englert
Lena is the focal point of the story, a 15-year-old Duchannes who comes from a long line of Casters, powerful supernatural beings who can wield magic. At the age of 16, a Caster is claimed by the Light or Dark side of their powers and is forever aligned with that path. Lena’s mother was claimed by the Dark so she’s terrified that her impending birthday will bring her the same fate. A newcomer to Gaitlin, she’s not welcomed by the town except for Ethan Wate, who’s been subconsciously dreaming about her before her arrival. The two are attracted to one another but separated by their very different worlds.
