Happy Birthday Gray!

So I know these biographies were meant to be bite-sized peeks behind the curtain, all to give you a glimpse at how I see my characters. They’ve all been turning into essays, which wasn’t the plan–not that I dislike the amount I’ve written, or felt forced to write that much. Once I get started on a character, I tend to just take it out on the empty space in front of me and fill it with as much information about said character as possible. It’s nice not to have any restraints in that regard, buuuut I’d very much like it if we could return to the original purpose of these mini-bios: that they actually be miniature. Otherwise, I’ll never get to writing Taurus

With that being said, today is Gray Osborne’s birthday! Read on for some info about them.

Basic Info:

Age in Aquarius: 26
Height: 5’6 | Weight: 125 lbs.
Hair: long straight raven black with bangs
Eyes: pewter/bluish dull grey
Human Race: British | Species: Demon
Hailing Planet: Zulwini (Uranus)
Ability: elemental sorcery; umbramancy
Rank: none
Specialties: quick reaction time, mastery of their power, sharpshooter, sarcasm
Best friends: Emily Todd, Zarina Attar, & Gwendolyn Reed
Soul mate: Emily Todd

Three facts about Gray:

  1. Though they were born and raised in the Paris Colony, Gray’s parents are from London, UK. The colony there was overrun by bandits years earlier.
  2. Gray knows four languages: English, French, Spanish, and sarcasm. They can be sarcastic in the other three tongues.
  3. They say they run on the three C’s: caffeine, cannabis, and Cobain. Gray also reads murder mysteries.

My thoughts on Gray:

Gray Osborne is definitely, 100%, without a doubt, a tsundere.


In all seriousness, maybe you’ve started noticing something about the Zulwini Tribe and their abilities? Gray is an exceptional person, and their role–along with the other elemental sorcerers–will become clear in time.

Gray has the ability to call upon and manipulate shadows, and they’ve learned to use their power well. They are also an amazing shot thanks to their 20/20 vision. With the right training, they could probably be a sniper.

This nonbinary demon spends their free time messing with Gwen, challenging Rin to games, and snuggling with Emily. They fell in love with her almost instantly, though they refused to admit it–even after the pair had bonded. It took Emily’s sweet nature and endless patience to pull Gray out of their shell. Their primary love language is physical touch, with words of affirmation and quality time tied for second.

Gray couldn’t care less about angel-demon beef, and they’re excited to see where their travels will take them… So long as Emily is safe.

Taurus is going to be hard on all of us.

For those of you who don’t know, Gray is a supporting character in my trilogy Saturn Rising, which is the first installment of The Chronicles of Life & Death. The first book, Aquarius, is available now on Amazon as an e-book and paperback. You can even read it all for free with Kindle Unlimited! Learn more here.

Smoke tinted by a fluorescent rainbow flows from the bottom-left of the photo to the top-right, the only color against a black backdrop. Overlaid are the words, "Want updates on the latest blogs? Follow Natasha Penn on social media!" Further down are neon-esque icons of Twitter and Reddit next to the username "nattypenn," and beneath that is the logo for instagram in the same style with the username "nattypennwastaken."
