Josh and Zach were on a supply run with their Uncle Jensen when they bumped into the Ninurta Court, led at the time by Owen McMahon. Owen recruited the boys, assuring their uncle that they would be safe under his care. The boys visit their uncle every few months, and now that the court has settled onto permanent territory, Uncle Jensen visits them very often.
Cooper comes off as quiet when you first meet her… Then you get to know her and realize she’s an energetic ball of energy obsessed with tarantulas. Yikes!
Matteo is a strong yet conflicted man. On the one hand, he trusts his son, the sitting prince, to make the right decisions. On the other hand, the council listens to his prophetic sister–and she’s saying they’ll have to make a change soon.
The Council of Elders can be divided into two main groups: Lorenzo, Matteo, Carter, and Cameron on one side, and Desideria, Remiel, Christian, and Aldo on the other. The latter half has been dubbed the “fun side,” even though Christian doesn’t get to vote when the council is coming to a decision.
Outside of his squad, Aldo appears very unapproachable. He’s stern, serious, and very intimidating. However, if you meet him when he’s around Desi, Remi, and Chris Sr., then the man’s all smiles. He loves the latter two as if they were his own brothers, and he adores Desi to pieces. Whenever one of the three visits Aldo at the colonial workshop, the humans are always blown away by the angel’s sudden shift in personality.
Even though he’s the youngest of his siblings, he’s the tallest, the physically strongest, the only male, and the only one to find their soul mate. Cienna is disinterested in fighting or romance, so she doesn’t partake in any competitions. Natalie, on the other hand, loves to challenge her little brother to fights. Even with his superior strength, he has yet to beat her speed, agility, and swordsmanship.
When he isn’t patrolling the border or spending time with his wife and their young baby, Sal teaches the colonial youth how to play team sports and outdoor games. He’s popular with the kids, while Frankie is popular with the ladies.
Cameron is a caring soul who fights for what he believes in and protects the ones he loves. He and Yavar are proud cat dads of most of their neighborhood’s strays. Both men work out rigorously, with Cameron being the go-to firearms instructor for the angels.
Ricky is definitely a fan of old Western movies–particularly spaghetti Westerns. As part of their training, he and Sam have to learn how to make all kinds of weapons and tools. They’ve made daggers for most of the court, Natalie’s broadsword, and have been deliberating on what to make for Tony.
This elder works out like a madman and can deadlift a semi-truck. He has a great sense of humor, and takes Chris Sr.’s and Remiel’s pranks very well–unlike his younger siblings.
