Oxer is a ditzy but kindhearted kid who travels back and forth from the country to the city to attend university. She majors in professional journalism and has a minor in Spanish / Portuguese studies. She writes for both Elias and Valkyrie, two characters that are featured in her novel slated to hit shelves at some point in 2018. Tea, art, horses, cats, playing her musical instruments, and obviously writing are some of her favorite things!
Wysteria, the other half of Saligiare, is a writer, artist, and violist who has no idea what she’s going to major in. She writes for Phoenix and Hana, who will hopefully have their own novel someday. Outside of writing, she likes cats, flowers, and suffering through classical sonatas.
Elias Crane Blackmore / Age 21 / Meteorite Control and Summoning
Elias is a redheaded heart breaker who can flirt like Eros himself and has the looks to match. He is very much so attracted to other men and is not afraid to show it (Hana would appreciate it if he would keep his eyes off of her brother). Silver-tounged and a talented negotiator, he is not above manipulating his foes to get what he or his team needs. That said, he tries his hardest to be “gentlemanly” and seems to at least have morals, thus appearing to be one giant walking contradiction. He is never seen with his hair unbraided or without a ruby bolo tie around his neck.
Valkyrie “Valk” Amethyst Faucher / Age 19 / Aura manipulation
Valkyrie is a self-dubbed “professional nervous wreck.” For reasons unknown to anyone but herself she is often seen having crying fits or randomly shaking. Despite this and her perpetual stutter, her observations about the world tend to be quite snarky and she swears like a sailor. She originally found Phoenix and Hana after her skin began to glow with mysterious runes, a feature that persists to this day. She is never without her cloaks, which she makes herself and have a variety of colors and patterns. Many things will set Valkyrie off into a nervous meltdown, including but not limited to yelling and the removal of her hood. She loves spending time with her cats and writing poetry.
Phoenix “Nick” Jasper Thourne / Age 20 / Life Energy Manipulation
The group’s certified teddy bear and a professional giver of hugs, Phoenix spends most of his time trying to help everyone else. As a result, he’s always some degree of exhausted. His “golden retriever reincarnated” personality led him to run off in the middle of the night to help Valkyrie, pursued by his (slightly overprotective, non-biological) sister Hana.
Hana Anjali Izumi / Age 19 / Delayed Pain Response
Hana proudly owns her title as the ultimate older sister figure and tank extraordinaire. She likes hair dye, solves most of her problems by punching them, and has an affinity for strange metaphors. She and Phoenix use the buddy system for just about everything, so when he ran off to help a glowing girl at some stranger’s house, she had little choice but to follow suit.
