Odessa Grenadé

Odessa was raised mostly by her doting father in Absalom where her father was a world renowned blacksmith. Growing up she lived a pretty charmed life. It wasn’t until she hit her teens that things went sideways. A sudden tragedy caused Odessa to flee her home and leave her old life behind. From there she made her way to a brothel where she worked for quite some time before leaving to find her own way in the world.

Odessa is first and foremost very blunt, followed closely by her fearless nature. Those combined, she often gets herself into trouble. Due to a gun misfire as a small child Odessa is Deaf in her left ear, as a result she was given a magical teddy bear named Jim as a service animal. With her cotton candy pink hair and her adorable companion it may be hard to take her seriously, but you’d be foolish not to.

Book 2 Bonds:

Pippa

The transformation that Pippa is going through is going to require support. I don’t pretend to understand what is happening as magic is something I know so little about, but I do know she will need a friend. So while Abraxas and Menet can offer advice and training I can offer her a hand to hold, and a safe escape should she need it.

I feel like there’s a side to Pippa I haven’t seen yet, but got a glimpse of her the other night in the tavern. The more I hear about the followers of Calistria the more I realize Pippa and I might have more in common than I thought. She puts on a proper front, but I’d love to see her let hair down for a minute and just have fun without formalities holding her back.

 Menet

My heart skips a beat when I think of Menet. Her kind eyes and strong arms make me feel safe, but when she said she thinks she’s was falling in love with me it scared me to my core. We’ve known each other for such a short period of time. Is it even possible for something so big to happen so fast? I worry about what the others will think and what could come of this. But I’m willing to try if she is.

I’ve been so focused on Menet but I feel like I don’t know anything about her. If we are going to be… something together… I should probably know more about her than superficial observations. I will not let her strong arms distract me from actually getting to know her. It’s about time I stop being so shallow and actually learn something about her.

What a mess I’ve made with Menet. The world is falling down around us and I keep finding myself thinking about what could be with someone I barely know. Her words “I hope you’ll give us a chance” echo in my head when I look at her. But she is coming to terms with the gravity of the situation we have fallen into and has so much on her plate. The last thing I need to do is add anything more. I do not have the skills to help me navigate the intricacy of what has happened between us. But I still can’t help but wonder what would happen if I was honest with myself… and with her.

 Abraxas

The platonic intamacy of sharing a bed with Abraxas has saved me from myself more times that I care to admit. He has become a silent rock for me to brace myself against that keep my nightmares at bay. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to repay the gift of peace he’s given me, but I shall try.

When Pikel showed up I was taken aback but enthralled by the sexual tension. From what Pikel alluded to Abraxas is an animal in more ways than one. So if I see an opportunity, I will be sure to throw Abraxas to the bears so to speak *wink*.  

 Myself

I am truly the champion of making things more complicated than necessary. From spitefully sleeping with a stranger, to yelling at Menet and then telling her how I feel, to waking up the next day to hid under the bed, and then lying to Pippa and Abraxas through omission… things have taken a turn. But Cayden trusts me and has put me on probation. In his honor I will cope with this stress in healthier ways and drink to celebrate when the stress is over. And you know… when we save the world.

After years of living inside an impenetrable shell that kept everyone at arms length I have begun to see cracks along the surface that let small truths slip through. Cayden has brought me to people who might give me the courage to live out in the light. Perhaps I can trust them with the truths that wreck my mind when I close my eyes. Maybe I don’t have to carry all this alone.

Book 1 Bonds:

  • Pipa seems to get into a lot of trouble, I need to watch her back at all times
  • Pipa’s heart is kind and true, I admire her drive to help others
  • Abraxas seems to struggle in almost any social situation, I will fix that somehow
  • Abraxas despite his struggle he is an ally that I can rely on
  • Pippa and I have grown close over the last several months, I believe I can trust her and I hope she can trust me. We both seem to of suffered substantial loss and heartbreak at too young an age. Knowing this, I want her to be able to confide her troubles in me and mine to her. Together perhaps we can begin to heal.
  • I am so completely out of my element. From the snow on the ground to a culture I do not understand, this is clearly not my expertise. As much as I hate to admit it, Pippa’s suggestion to follow Abraxas makes sense. I will do my best to swallow my pride and be the best I can be.
  • I’ve made baby steps towards opening up and trusting my companions just as Cayden has commanded me, but I can’t seem to get over the larger hurdles. If I am ever going to have this divine curse lifted I will either need to embrace this forced honesty or convert to a new God. Wherein the latter isn’t really an option. Oh Cayden, why have you betrayed me so?
