(Left to right: Senna, Kalli, Joo-eun, Robert, Jibril)
Senna- 21, 5’1”, white, American, lesbian. Her parents weren’t technically entirely human! She is the main character of our fine tale. She’s the type of person who has very strong ideals and sort of freaks out and turns to extreme cynicism when their ideals fail them. Which is pretty much exactly the case at the beginning of the story. She is failing out of college (English major), just coming out of a huge breakup with her girlfriend of six years, and is basically on the verge of wanting to die because she has no sense of direction or purpose. She’s very analytical and thoughtful but has trouble seeing the positive side of things. Does Not Believe In Magic™. Unfortunately for her, she is sort of a medium.
Kalli- 23, 5’3”, Indian American, lesbian. Full name is Kaleeswari, but when she was in school she got tired of people fucking up the pronunciation, so she just went by her nickname. Has a music degree and works as a flute player. A little shy, but friendly. Her family is really important to her, which caused some problems with her high school girlfriend, who was putting a lot of pressure on her to come out at the time. She still hasn’t come out, though. She’s a motherly type, likes to take care of people, good listener, frets a lot. Wind magic.
Joo-eun, 28, 5’7”, Korean American, I’m tentatively calling her straight but I don’t think she’d turn down the right lady. Works as a freelance massage therapist. Very independent, to the point where she ran away from home at 16 because she found it too stifling. She’s the type of person who flourishes in new and unfamiliar situations, and she’s very adaptable. Has very strong opinions, and has convictions such that she rarely gets angry over debates. Water magic.
Robert- 27, 5’10”, El Salvadorian American, straight. High school Geology/Earth Science teacher. Can be sort of old-fashioned and conservative, but he’s not completely backwards. Feels strongly about his position as a leader and a role model, especially towards children. He and Joo-eun butt heads a lot, but while she seems to enjoy it, he always ends up getting flustered and frustrated by their arguments. Earth magic.
Jibril- ???, 5’11”, ????????????!?!?!. Jibril isn’t human, and has no gender anyone can immediately discern. Appears entirely in Senna’s dreams and visions, where ze enjoys playing with the decor and taking fashion cues from deep within her subconscious. Super perky, almost always positive, very proactive. Basically Senna’s complete opposite. Ze communicates with Senna to help her guide the mages and clue them in on supernatural goings-on.
As always, questions about anyone are always welcome as they help me figure stuff out and solidify details. :D
