Orion rarely speaks of his past, but is known to have come from a well-to-do, borderline noble family, before having a falling-out with his parents upon his coming of age when he learned that he had a half-sister who had been sent away. Leaving home, he sought her out, finding her just in time to see her be cut down by a pack of goblins who were raiding a village she was attempting to defend. He defeated the goblins' leader (the last one still alive) in single combat and attempted to save her, but she died in his arms.
After that he wandered for a good while from village to village, country to country, always moving on until he reached Town. There he met Maia and became good friends with her, and, adventuring, he met Mirage. Although at first he found her flirting merely cute, he soon began falling for her - and she for him. And, soon after returning from their second adventure together, in which they had expressed their love for each other, they were married...
Orion and Mirage have two daughters, Maia Svietlana and Kismet, the latter having come back in time from the future.
In addition, he has the habit of adopting strays...considering Erin, Willow, and Angie as daughters as well.

Erin Patricia O'Connell STATUS: Heartbroken and in GitP Town.
Race: Human (modified)
Alignment: Chaotic Neutral/Neutral Good
Age: ...depends on how you measure it. Anywhere from 'about a year' to 'about 35'...but is effectively 24.
Hair and Eye Color: Raven black with a white witches lock; unearthly sapphire blue
She usually wears normal adventuring-type clothes and cowboy boots, and usually carries Maia's old staff, a wooden staff with a crecent of metal at its top.
((NOTE: Backstory assumes some knowledge of HALO over on GitP. But it will have little bearing on actions here in the town. The portal trip Swiss-cheesed her memory...))
Erin was created as a result of an accident with a Dup-O-Matic that Bushranger (Pat) was working on. She's very much like him...just gender-bent. Being immediately accosted by Nomlas and Shas, she panicked, creating a random portal away...which has nearly wiped her memory and deposited her here in Town.
She has an assortment of ghostly powers, including ectoblasts, ice powers, flight, and other goodies. Whether or not she really is a ghost, or just a metahuman of sorts, well...
Erin is utterly and completely devoted to Maia, and would do anything, anything at all, for her lover. She is also good friends with Angie, and has admitted to having motherly feelings torwards the younger girl.
At one point recently had her power boosted by her 'brother' Pat. Too much as it turned out. After Maia left after a misunderstanding, her temper kept getting the better of her...until finally her ghost powers burned out...
Now Maia has returned, and after being kidnapped and tortured by Sszinyon Erin's powers have stablised - at a much lower level.
After an unfortunate series of events, Erin has now left Town...

Erin also has ice powers. She can suck the ambient moisture in the air and change it into ice, and manipulate it. She needs to have her hands free in order to do this, but she also has a cold aura can cause the ambient temperature to drop - dramatically at times.
Erin also has a junco familiar, named Tom.
Since she got it from Avatar, it's...different from your average emberizid.

[quote=Artemis]Said dress was, if anyone cared to take a look, a halter-top made in the flowing platinum fabric Amist has decided upon. It was considerably shorter than Krisnda's dress, actually, it was bordering on being called a 'shirt' not a dress. It was low cut in the front and had an open back, and everything from the bustline down to the low waistline was a lacey spiderweb pattern, a very sheer fabric of the same shade as the dress laying in the spaces between the lines.[/quote]
