CHARACTER BIO'S

Meara is a Neimidh woman who is skilled with a spear. She has curly honey brown hair and lightly tanned skin. Although one of Shiovra’s warriors, Meara prefers to roam about and even has a band of fighters loyal to her. She is generally good-natured and has the ability to set Daire straight. She doesn’t speak of her past, not how she got so many men to follow under her orders. Meara controls the element of air.

Mahon is Shiovra’s elder brother and of the Túath clan. He is described as having light brown hair and blue eyes. A quiet and reserved man, he would rather make weapons than serve his role as one of Tara’s ruling clan members. He cares about his sister deeply and blames himself for letting her leave Tara and train to be a High Priestess.

Réalta Dubh is not only Shiovra’s aunt, but also her mentor and mother figure. She is one of the Túath clan and has mahogany hair. Her eyes are highly unusual, with the left green and the right blue. Réalta trained Shiovra as a priestess on the small island of Rúnda after the initial attack on Tara that killed Shiovra’s mother. She is a stern woman who believes completely that she can save her clan and will do whatever necessary, no matter the cost.

Ceallach Neáll is one of the Fomorii clan, although not misshapen like most of them. He is tall and slim with long, silvery-white hair and ice-blue eyes with slit pupils. Ceallach once served as Réalta’s guardian and later became her lover and fathered Daire. He doesn’t speak to much and is often seen as hard and cold. He holds strong contempt for his elder brother after the death of their sister.
