Name: Daniel Sparr
Nickname: Dan or Danny
Age: fairy equivalent of 22
Height: 3 feet, 5 inches
Clothing: loose black tunic, black leggings, black leather boots, belt and sheath, occasionally a mask to hide his face
Appearance: dark brown (almost black) hair that is slightly overgrown, blue eyes, tall for a fairy, slight but strong, light skin with a bit of a tan, long scar that runs across his back from his right shoulder to his left hip
Personality: Dan is quiet and unassuming, and doesn’t look like much, but he possesses many extraordinary talents. He does not bend his personality to make people like him –- Dan is himself, and he knows that some people may like him and some may not, and is okay with that. He doesn’t care much what others think of him, just as long as he knows the truth about who he is. His most defining character trait is quiet honesty.
Talents/Skills: Dan is the fastest fairy in the force, but not very good with a gun. He prefers using a sakabato (reverse-blade sword) to injure, not kill. Because of his poor aim which usually ends up in harmed fairies instead of humans, the fairy commanders allowed Dan to battle with his sword, of which he is a master. Dan uses a fencing method all his own, which earns him the awe and grudging respect of many of his friends and enemies. Because of his speed, he can actually deflect bullets with his blade and perform complicated combat katas while fighting. Aside from his sword, Dan also studied goju ryu (the “hard and soft” dragon method), a form of human martial arts that he advertises with his dragon-fang necklace.
Items/Weapons: sakabato sword belted to hip, throwing knives in each boot, a leather necklace with a dragon fang
Bio: Not much is known about Dan’s childhood, or even about his family. He was found curled in a crater in a disused magma chute near Haven City, badly injured. He was brought to Taillte for treatment, seventeen years old, by which time he could already do combat flawlessly. No one knows where he learned his self-defense or fencing methods.
Name: Melodi Truman
Height: 5 feet, 8 inches
Clothing: men’s pants, tunic, jacket, thick-soled boots
Appearance: Because Melodi is an albino, she has very pale skin, lank hair that is so blonde it looks white, and pinkish eyes that make her look a bit crazed in bright light. She is very in-shape, but not particularly strong or anything.
Personality: Melodi is a big klutz, and due to her constant reading she has an extensive vocabulary. She is very antisocial and does not have good people skills –- her mouth moves when she thinks, and many people avoid her because they think she is rude and obnoxious. She has almost no friends.
Talents/Skills: Melodi is an archer, but has severe “aim swings.” She is either a killer sharpshooter or a blatant arrow-waster. Never in between. Her greatest skill is stealth. She has no problem being quiet because she gets so much practice in her everyday life. Melodi is also a master at keeping still. She knows that sometimes, even when an enemy is looking right at you, most of the time they cannot see you unless you move. Keeping absolutely still and silent is her specialty.
Items/Weapons: recurve bow, full quiver, small and very old sketchbook that once belonged to her father
Bio: Melodi grew up in England, the youngest of three children. Her mother was a vain, beautiful woman, and her father was a quiet scientist. Melodi’s mother hated her from birth because she was an albino. Her father favored her above his other children because she was so smart. Melodi was taunted by her two older siblings, both of whom were healthy and beautiful, and by the children who went to school with her. Her parents fought about her regularly, and finally her mother took her first two children and left. Melodi never saw any of them again.
Her father taught Melodi about science, and also told her a secret: he was studying the cause of a disease without a cure. If he found the cure, he would become famous and they would have more money. But in the course of his research, her father died, infected with the very disease he had been studying. Melodi was sixteen and orphaned. That was when she offered her intelligence to the warriors, who tossed her into training as an archer and put her in the front lines of battle. How she survived this long is a mystery.
