Happy Birthday to Heather & Holly!

Heather was definitely the sister who was met with more trouble, whether she realized it at the time or not. She was very naïve as a child, following older kids in hopes of fitting in. Holly had to come to her rescue far too often, forcing her to cross paths with kids twice her size.

Happy Birthday Rin!

As another of the elemental sorcerers of the Zulwini Tribe, Rina can manipulate plants and earth to an extent. They can move existing earth and flora, and they can will certain species of plants to grow. They have kept a few potted vegetables–and Gray’s special “herbs”–alive on the camper since their recruitment. They are especially skilled at summoning vines and thorns.

Happy Birthday Gray!

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.

Happy Birthday Keke!

The two are close in age but the younger sister had a knack for mischief, leading Keke to learn how to negotiate with others from a young age in exchange for their silence regarding Raine’s transgressions. Her antics normally consisted of minor pranks, trespassing, and sneaking off with someone’s girlfriend, so there were times when Markeisha had to forego her diplomacy and let her fists do the talking.

Happy Birthday, Summer & Winter!

A school was eventually put in place, and the Wolfes tried to enroll their daughters so that they could engage socially with others their age instead of traveling with their parents. They received word after two weeks that their daughters had gotten into fights with the other students–especially Summer, who was prone to biting. This forced their mother and father to attempt to homeschool the twins when they were not hunting or going on scouting runs.

Happy Birthday Mike!

Mike continues making armor for his colleagues, and even making extra to trade to colonists for essential supplies. This had made him the court’s leading negotiator, both in bartering goods and in dire straits. His improvisation skills are top tier, as he can adapt to almost any situation.

Happy Birthday Trent!

Even though he was a late addition to the cause, Trent was not influenced to bully Jeremy by James. He simply saw the psychic as too different from him to vibe with, and kept his distance based on that. Also, whether he realized it or not, Jerr had added to his own isolation by giving off an aura that made the younger courtsmen believe that he despised them; in reality, Jeremy and Trent are very similar, and would probably learn a lot from one another, as well as grow together as friends.

Happy Birthday Hunter!

I honestly love the idea of the teenage members of the court thinking they can keep a secret like this from the elders. And, yeah, Gio is technically a teenager, but he also remembers over a hundred of his past lives where he lived (in some cases) well into his sixties. It makes him weirdly mature for nineteen, which makes his random moments of youthful behavior seem out of place.

Happy Birthday, Wes!

No matter how hard I try, I can’t imagine Wesley being bad at anything. He seems like the kind of person who listens carefully to instructions and takes, “do it right the first time,” to heart. He’s undefeated in combat practice, and has only lost in weapons combat to Owen. He took to Jeremy’s mental exercises easily, and was the first to successfully call out to the psychic. I suppose if there’s one thing he’s bad at, it’s saying no to others.
