Happy Birthday Chris!

Chris was one of the first teleporters I ever created. He’s based off a friend I had in high school. I hung out with “outcasts”; goths, punks, skaters, stoners, anime nerds… That’s who I based many of my first characters off of.

Who’s Who: Scout of the Sonora Pounce

Scout is on both the baseball and basketball teams at AOA. She’s a point forward for the Magic Striders and relief pitcher for the Heavenly Devils.

Happy Birthday Caleb!

The court has learned that Caleb dresses according to the gender identity that they’re most aligned with; on days when they’re feeling more feminine, Julian calls them Caley. They prefer gender neutral pronouns since their identity flips so often.

Happy Birthday Aria!

The big sister that everyone wants. Sweet, kind-hearted, positive, open-minded, talented, intelligent, and beautiful. Her only downfall is that she can be a bit spacey–otherwise, she always has her friends’ backs.

Happy Birthday Isaac!

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.

Happy Birthday Celia!

While one of the few without an ability, Celia can hold her own against both bandits and ability-wielding spirits. She and Dianora train the coven in capoeira and jiu-jitsu, allowing them to hone their physical prowess.

Happy Birthday Adrian!

Adrian is one of the oldest characters I’ve had–meaning his character has been around since the story was first conceptualized. He’s gone through many changes: he used to be a teenager at the time of the story, he used to be Brazilian-American, he used to be downright crazy. He was created with an old friend in mind, so I literally based him off of how that friend would act in class when he came up against others in our friend group.

Happy Birthday Kaylee!

Kaylee was moved to six different homes over the next decade before she finally settled onto a farm with the warm and welcoming embrace of an elderly couple. The were patient with her, coaxed her out of her shell and cared for her as if she were their own daughter. Over time, the teenager even began speaking to them, though she still remained quiet whenever scouts came around to trade food for goods. Shortly before her nineteenth birthday, Kaylee met Aria.
