Adam is almost the quintessential Cytherean angel: he’s a transgender male, he’s gay, he had a rather sheltered upbringing in the Rock Springs colony–an area south of Jackson that saw frequent bandit activity–and he’s crafty. His skills lie more in sewing, photography, crafting, and styling than in fighting–however, he learned how to conceal himself, how to track, how to trap and hunt, and how to defend himself in hopeless situations.
If I were to describe Alice’s style as 2000s goth, then Gin’s would be emo-punk.

Isaac is the more reserved of the Callahan brothers, and the more creative one in terms of food. Noah sees cooking and baking as a fun little hobby that doubles as a chore, while Isaac sees all culinary tasks as passion projects. He collects recipe books and culinary magazines, and he’s the undefeated Monopoly champion. Fun fact: Monopoly is the game that Amira, Zarina, and the Burns twins are trying to play at the beginning of Aquarius. They play the game in teams of two because they found a used version of the game that had lost the instructions, so they’ve made up several rules as they played.
