Character Portrait: Simon and Lydia

*WARNING: This post contains mild spoilers for people who haven’t read Vengeance or Retribution yet*

Full Name: Simon and Lydia Carressa

Occupation: Children

Gender: Male & Female

Sexual Orientation: TBD

Hair: Blond (Simon), Black (Lydia)

Eyes: Hazel (Simon), Blue (Lydia)

Height: ~3′ 4″

Weight: ~40 lbs each

Hobbies: Reading, coloring, interpreting the secrets of the universe through a five-year-old’s POV

Background: Lydia and Simon are the fraternal twin children of Max and Val, born about a year after the couple was married in Fiji. Their parents shower them with love, trying to ensure they have the happy childhoods that neither Max nor Val had growing up. They both inherited their father’s genius-level intelligence, their mother’s grit – and their parents’ strange ability.

Beneath the Surface: Though the children are unusually bright, they’ve also been gifted – or cursed – with the ability to see multiple versions of the future at will, which makes them seem even smarter than they actually are. They’re both extremely rare Alpha seers, like Cassandra, and the reason Max and Val were brought together to begin with. As such, Northwalk will do anything to get their hands on these special children.

Weight: 180 lbs

Hobbies: Listening to music, collecting teeth, torturing people

Background: As the son of Northwalk’s ruling matriarch Honora, Julian holds a special place in the top echelon of the organization, along with his sister Claire, as an excellent doer of “odd jobs.”

Beneath the Surface: “Psychopath” is such a strong word; he prefers “mono-emotional.” Unburdened with such useless feelings as compassion and love, he’s able to get a lot done for the organization when the job calls for getting one’s hands dirty.

Character Portrait: Honora

*WARNING: This post contains mild spoilers for people who haven’t read Vengeance or Retribution yet*

Full Name: Honora du Lothgard

Occupation: Leader of Northwalk

Gender: Female

Sexual Orientation: Hetero

Hair: Blond

Eyes: Blue

Height: 5′ 6″

Weight: 135 lbs

Hobbies: Manipulating the stock market and world events, destroying people with her icy glare

Background: Originating from England, Honora has been in charge of the powerful cabal Northwalk for a long time…almost an inhumanly long time. She rules the organization with an iron fist, directing cells across multiple countries in order to keep tight surveillance/control of the world’s seers.

Beneath the Surface: Everything is a means to an end to Honora, and the ends always justify the means. She will do whatever it takes to stay in power, and she’s smart enough to realize her continued reign is dependent on getting her hands on the young Alpha seers before the rival organization Yongjai can.

Height: 5′ 10″

Weight: 170 lbs

Hobbies: Poker, brunching, giving “tough love” advice

Beneath the Surface: While Michael respected Lester Carressa as a shrewd businessman, he also understood that what made Lester a great businessman also made him a terrible father. Out of a strong sense of compassion, Michael always tries to be kind to Max in a way the boy’s father never was. He cares for the Carressa heir like his own son, even if Max doesn’t realize it.

Character Portrait: Cassandra

*WARNING: This post contains mild spoilers for people who haven’t read Vengeance or Retribution yet*

Full Name: Cassandra

Occupation: Seer

Gender: Female

Sexual Orientation: Asexual

Hair: Black

Eyes: Blue

Height: 5′ 6″

Weight: 120 lbs

Hobbies: Endlessly thinking about the future, building strange machines

Background: Where Cassandra came from is a mystery; in fact, it’s not unlikely Cassandra herself doesn’t know. Val has only seen the woman in her visions, and even then Cassandra talks in riddles. She’s connected somehow to the secret and powerful organization known as Northwalk, but does she run it, or is she one of their pawns?

Beneath the Surface: Cassandra is a powerful Alpha Seer: someone who can see the future all the time. But she sees not just one future; she sees all possible futures. The never-ending flood of information has made her connection to reality tenuous, and she’s slowly slipping into insanity.
