ABOUT

In a list of Sam’s favourite things, one would find Netflix, and her mobile phone, and social media. Sam has never longed for Narnian adventures or to battle it out in Westeros, she’s always been very happy with her feet planted firmly on Earth’s steady ground.

Which is why finding herself on Aosi – a country so far removed from England or even Earth – is such a culture shock for her.

Sam’s motivations for fitting in aren’t as noble as Mikey’s or as genuine as Bree’s – hers are to please Mikey until he goes home with them. The sooner she can get back to Netflix, sixth form and her life in England, the better.

SKILLS

  • Fast on his feet
  • Quick Learner

ABOUT

Unlike Sam, Mikey feels at home the second he sets foot in Aosi. It doesn’t matter that it’s a whole other world he has no attachment to, it’s an adventure – his adventure – and he plans to milk it for all its worth.

He’s fascinated by the architecture, the culture and the languages, especially Inoak, which was spoken by all of Aosi once, before they (for a reason he can’t get anyone to explain to him) took up English as their primary language.

He’s a runner, quick on his feet and fluid with his actions and he’s never happier than when he’s doing parkour.

ABOUT

Law has never managed to find a place she feels like she belongs.

On Earth she grew up in America, to abusive parents, in a town that didn’t like who or what she was in the slightest.

When she was older, her parents moved her to England, where she had to reacclimate to everything bit by bit. She never felt like she fit in anywhere but with Sam and Mikey.

Aosi feels no different.

Everyone around her, even Sam, has a purpose – a reason for being there, for fighting, training and learning.

All Law has is her friends.

ABOUT

For want of another phrase, Bree was a dustbin baby, abandoned before she could ever learn where she came from.

Once she was older she bounced between bad decisions and relationships, finding herself in trouble more and more often as time went by, until finally there was no way out – she had a reputation, there was no way she’d be able to get a fresh start.

Until she ended up in Aosi.

Now she’s in a world without her criminal record, without an ex-boyfriend who wants to hurt her. She’s in a world where she can start over, and she plans to do just that.
