It's November! Which means Iron & Ivy is coming out soon (as well as Nanowrimo, so wishing dedication and free time to all my fellow participants out there). I'll be doing a string of fun little extras this month leading up to the book's release.
The first is a character profile of our leading lady:
Basic Introduction: Maya may be eighteen, but she’s mature for her age after helping to support her family all her life. She's often a practical thinker and strives to consider all her actions before she does them. That down to earth attitude has made her recognize that balancing her own relaxation and interests is important too, when she can manage it. Her first piercings were DIY, her grandmother taught her how to make crazy colors work with her hair, and she sneaks in a warm bath with her favorite music whenever she can.
Family: Grandmother who raised her, Mom like a sister, and her aunt’s family in California she doesn’t talk to much.
Friends: Nico, Nate, Shaquina and Frankie (she did have a group of school friends, but they lost touch).
Job: Server at Nico’s Tavern.
Spicy or Sweet: Bland with a mild kick.
Favorite Color: Violet, electric blue, silver, and/or red (it changes with her hair).
Fruit or Vegetables: Filling vegetables like potatoes and corn.
Cats or Dogs: Either, but cats take less work.
Sailor Scout (Sailor Moon): Sailor Mars or Sailor Jupiter.
Hogwarts house: Hufflepuff.
DnD Alignment: Neutral Good.
Element: Earth, rocky with occasional volcanos.
Next week, our leading gentleman: Daire, Lord of Ivy.

I hope you enjoyed meeting Maya! Do you have any character introductions of your own? I would love to meet them! Feel free to use the template above to describe them in the comments. :D
Brie Tart writes fantasies in which she draws the mythical from the mundane. She spends the rest of her time dabbling in languages and prepping for her next adventure.
