Between elementary school and junior high, Petra has undergone the most drastic transformation of any of the kids. Where she was once shy to the point of total speechlessness--indeed, paralysis--she is now a witty, talented conversationalist whose outer …
Bob is a pretty cookie-cutter middle school football kid: popular, good-looking, vain, and a little stupid. Only a _little_ stupid, though--his grades are a little better than his poor playground wit might otherwise suggest, and his talent for music might …
Sensitivity and poetry are not two qualities normally associated with a popular kid, but somehow Bill manages to pull it off without getting made fun of. Maybe it's the fact that his twin brother is protective and vaguely terrifying--or maybe it's just …
Since his Awakening, Ethan has been riding on a wave of soaring confidence and popularity. Those who know him well may think that this wave of excitement can't possibly last, and yet it seems to have shown no signs yet of slowing down or crashing.
Emily Burke (MIA)
Having bit off more than she could chew in her rivalry with [[:maggie-stark | Margaret "Maggie" Stark]], Emily found herself in a position of powerlessness which frustrated her to no end. This humiliation culminated at the infamous Talent Show, when her …
Aaron van der Meer
Most people seem to think that Aaron is destined to become a great basketball or football player, but so far he has shown only middling interest in sports. Oh, he plays them, sure--he has to--but mostly he seems to be doing it out of obligation.
It has been revealed that Remainder has been Laverne all along--an Awakened Mage who has somehow acquired a limited capacity for time travel, and has decided to use it to help her friends to Awaken and achieve their destinies.
Little is known about …
Zoia values her privacy.
[[:petra-mendeleeva | Petra Mendeleeva]] is her daughter.
[[:laverne-ward | Laverne Ward]] is her...ward.
Though still young, Athos is a serious up-and-comer both in in the Mysterium and in the Consilium at large. She is widely known as one of the foremost authorities on all things Mastigos, from the Mind Arcanum, to investigations into goetic demons, to the …
Most members of the Consilium have learned to regard Porthos with a healthy degree of caution. It's not that she _means_ to be dangerous; it's just that she gets so _excited_ that the resultant flailing of knees and elbows tends to knock things over. …
Few Mages exemplify the phrase "pillar of the community" as well as Justine. Hard-working, responsible, honest, and just plain _decent_--that's just the kind of reputation Justine has built for herself. She's a staunch, dependable ally--the kind of person …
Poe is an up-and-comer in the cutthroat politics of the Silver Ladder. As such, he is well-versed not only in the manipulation game, but also in the rich political history of the Awakened. Among the Silver Ladder, he is considered a historian and trivia- …
Nobody in the Atlantean Orders really takes the Free Council seriously, which makes Pillbox the perfect Free Council member. Not even his own friends take him with more than a grain of salt.
People sometimes wonder if the lackadaisical, carefree, …
Adaliah is best known for his Matter magic, and particularly his affinity for, and command over, the element of water. Hence the Shadowname: "one who draws water."
An extremely well-respected member of the Awakened community, Adaliah is one of the …
Aramis is the third and most forgettable member of the Cabal that named itself after the Three Musketeers. Though somewhat personable, he keeps to himself and doesn't like to create a stir; this has made him very few enemies, but has also caused him to be …
Valerie Carver (MIA)
Valerie just transferred from a school across town, and became fast friends with the group. She even offered to teach them to break dance.
Unfortunately no one learned to break dance.
Instead things ended with both Maggie and Rick suffering from …
When the kids were hatching a plot to scare the crap out of Emily Burke, Marion was totally on board. She took the plan perhaps a little bit too far--roughing Emily up, in the process--but to this day she keeps the video recording of the prank dutifully …
It's hard to imagine making an enemy of Richter without doing something extremely wrong--and thus easy to see why he's had such success moving up the political chain. He is the first Councillor in a long time, perhaps ever, to be placed on the Consilium's …
Kris showed up at the school around the same time Emily Burke and Valerie Carver began attending. He was seen accompanying their group pretty much all the time, and it was initially assumed that he was simply one of their lackeys.
However, after some …
Ever heard the phrase, "Handsome Devil"?
Months back, when the Doomsday Clock assaulted the Perfected Adept Temple, Joule was one of the few Adepts who escaped alive. The Temple sent her on a revenge quest--alone, and without any prospect of back-up--to return the favor. And she did.
Rumors abound about Sutton. They say that he deals in dark things: forbidden Artifacts, unholy ritual components...even people's souls, and Mages' soulstones. They say he has friends in the Seers of the Throne. They say he has fingers in every pie, that …
Ask most any other mage or anyone who knows about magi about Tiamat and they'll have a story - often negative. For instance, Poe will inform you of the time she was in the middle of the New York Consilium, and in broad view of Sleepers, she stepped out of …
Dorian is the only Mage in the Consilium who publicly claims membership in the secretive Order of the Guardians of the Veil. As far as anyone knows, he is the leader of the local Guardians--then again, as far as anyone knows, he is the _only_ Guardian. …
The kids were shocked when, upon seeing the Hierarch for the first time, they found a man who had an identical face to the villain they'd previously met known as Bryan Badman. This Mage was responsible for a deal with the Doomsday Clock which resulted in …
