The Blood & Magic World
The beginning of the series starts six years after the Awakening. This is ultimately when paranormals of all shapes, sizes, and species decided that they were coming out of the closet. They were the top of the food chain and they wanted you to know it.
After the Awakening, the economy crashed, the government systems fell, and wars ensued. Now, years later. No one body is in control but they are all vying for it.
Aria Naveed is our main character. Aria is a pyrokinetic mercenary who has the strong urge to put her neck on the line for those too weak to defend themselves. She’s hidden her pyrokinetic abilities her entire life for fear that she’d be manipulated and turned into someone else’s weapon, or experimented on to find out what makes her tick. She is impulsive and at times can be brash but she fights for what she believes in and never takes no for an answer.
James Shields is Aria’s best friend and happens to be a wolf shifter. He is the acting Hunter for the Pacific Northwest Pack which is to say that it is his responsibility to take down shifters who go rogue. He resides outside of the Pack’s heriarchy because you never know who is at risk of going rogue. It could be your mother, brother, or even your Alpha.
Declan Valkenaar is the Alpha of the Pacific Northwest Pack. His animal form is a white Tiger. He has nearly white-blonde hair and emerald eyes that take on a metallic quality when his tiger decides to make an appearance. Declan always puts the Pack’s needs first and will do and use whatever and whoever he needs to, to ensure his Pack’s survival.
Mike Sanborn is a fatherly figure for Aria. He owns Sanborn Place, Aria’s place of work, and took her in two years prior to the start of Cursed by Fire, when she had no where else to go. Mike is married to Marion Sanborn.
Melody is a Harpy, no last name because well, Harpies don’t need them She is a quick witted woman with an addiction to aggravating her attractive neighbor Ryan. Her are Aria are casual friends and neighbors, sharing the same apartment complex.
Inarus Hawkins is a Psyker like Aria, only his ability is telekinetics. He can move objects with his mind as well as teleport himself and others. Him and Aria have a rocky relationship. As a member of PsyShade, his motivations and beliefs align with those who view paranormals as abominations.
