9 is a good number. Is that too many? *** *** ***
*Handel’s name was “George” at first because the human couple couldn’t tell her sex and they defaulted to male, same way people often do with birds.
*Tewarius is a bit of a workaholic and doesn’t have much of a life beyond work. Part of the reason is he is terrified of living a life like Sornal, taking money to be stared at for being different. This is part of how they met. Tewarius found his whole shtick bordering on physically painful to see roll into town, so he tried to strike up conversation with him and see if he could help him out of that life.
*Among spell book nerds like Trip, Atlas is a minor celebrity. Since these nerds are an extremely obscure community, that isn’t saying a lot, but Atlas has been an extremely prolific spell writer, and his books stand out for being full of bizarre and often acerbic footnotes and commentary, which only gets worse when he’s writing other spell writer’s books, which often contain under the radar digs at whoever wrote the spell he’s annotating.
*Peter used to live in an apartment before he grew out of scale with it, and found he couldn’t afford a bigger place.
*Enka told Seekali she was a woman so she wouldn’t find out later the best man at her wedding had been a lady and freak out. She got to be best man anyway.
*Calvin Weaver, the beekeeper that knows the Amber Rust, Blood Gold and Sun Glass Melliferian hives, started it simply by being very friendly with the foragers. This got him a good reputation that quickly grew until they trusted him to exchange favors for their honey, which he sells as a specialty item along side his regular honey that he gets from his own normal bees.
*Cecil isn’t a magic user himself, but he made discoveries that allowed him to create a more streamlined way to convert magic into sugar, and he uses that money to do his research without having to get grants.
*142857SG-AR used to be a singer, but the incident that required the arm transplants that make her look so mismatched and patchwork is also the incident that damaged her voice box, so her voice is now rough and delicate, so it wears out quickly. She still sings anyway.
*Calvin gives the Melliferians a lot of varied things at their request, but one of the most common things he gets them is candy. They mostly prefer the candies that are mostly sugar and little else, like hard candy, gummy candy, jelly beans etc., They don’t actually like chocolate, which Calvin has always found really weird.
