Characters

Believe it or not but in this section I’ll make an overview of all the characters featuring in my book. Starting of with the two main characters Martin and Cithea.

Cithea

Cithea is something else. A misfit amongst misfits. She was taken by the magical inquisition while she was still a little girl. Nowadays she barely remembers her parents, but will never forget the look on her mom’s face when she went away and gave her the amulet.

Magicians are outcasts of society and Cithea has a power totally different from anyone else. Every now and then she sets things on fire by accident and since her powers started to awaken she’s been dreaming about the same place every single night. Her vision like dreams make her use magic in a restricted way, setting of her magical seal.

This inability to control her power during her sleep is what frightens her the most. Being unable to control yourself makes you, per definition, a danger to the outside world. Fearing she’ll be stuck in the magical academy for the rest of her life she turns to her mentor Ohrad for guidance. What they unravel will transfer her entire being.

At school she goes by fairly unnoticed. She doesn’t care what she looks like or what others think of her. Having only a few friends, of which Noeresj is her best, she mainly focusses about getting out of what she considers a prison in disguise. She studies hard and is eager to learn, being amongst the best students of her age, which doesn’t contribute to her popularity.

The one time she does take care of herself it becomes clear she’s a rough diamond. Suddenly the boys are interested in her, but she leaves them be. If she wasn’t good enough before then they’re not good enough now.

Martin

Martin is one of the main characters.┬áHe’s just an average Joe, slightly tall with dark hair and blue eyes. Not a sportsman, but loves to be around his friends and family. His great passion is driving a motorcycle. So after middleschool that was what he first wanted to pursue. Living with some close friends in a student apartment he works a full time job in order to pay for his bachelor lifestile. He works hard, but not for saving. Martin lives in the now and tries to make the most of it. Since he’s still young and trying to find his place in a fast moving world, he doesn’t always cope well but manages nevertheless.

Upon arriving in Orion he’s confused and unwilling to accept the situation, although he survives the first few days pretty well. When he gets confronted with the reality of his bizarre situation he first tries to make sence of it using the knowledge he has. Knowledge from a world he’s no longer at. Getting to know Mythas he fiends himself a weird friend, a valuable one at that since he knows the way for him to get back home.

His magical potential makes him a great asset for Mythas, although he needs a lot of work. Not even being able to grasp the basics at first, his mentor has to use unorthodox means to get his young disciple to his full potential. Not being taken by the magical inquisition when he was a boy, means he doesn’t carry the seal to keep him in check.
