I covered Rowan’s terrible relationship track record a while back, so let’s see how Birch and his fiancée are doing.
Birch is Ceannic-born, but of Getsunese descent; “Baker” is a Getsunese last name. Annie, short for Anise, is Ceannic (specifically, Aibreán).
We’ll have a storyline about their wedding…at some point. Lots of other stuff has to go down first.
Magic in the Leif & Thorn universe interacts heavily with spirits, who range from “majestic and imposing” to “tiny and adorable.” (Lookit that tough little Cthulhu-type guy at the top.)
Water and fire spirits appear to grow right out of their respective elements. Nature spirits are more inclined to have stuff growing on them.
(These aren’t the only varieties. For instance, Holly’s major connection is with star spirits, not shown.)
