Description Edit


An extra playing a Demon (set-photo).

The series follow Siran Askald (played by Scott Wilson) and Thragh Boondor (played by Kevin Templar), two brave fellows with a death sentence which they can avoid by joining the Snake Warriors of Ophidia, an elite corps that fights an ancient and menacing evil.

In contrary to the books, the television series is - for budgetary reasons - almost entirely set in one country, Cerdan, a kingdom in the fictional "Half-World" created by Goodwin. Though not precisely located in historical time, the setting has a Medieval feel to to, mixed with obvious fantastic elements.

Production Edit

Lovilago Film started production the fourth and final book was published, made possible by Goodwin's full cooperation. Goodwin acted as a producer, though in reality he was only involved to a certain extent, allowing the people behind the show the necessary creative freedom.

The producers were able to cast some notable Lovian actors, among them the great Sofia Lilland, soap actor James J.K. Wilson and Dujardin sister Suzanna in one of her early roles.
