Name: Megaera Lyonesse Course: Developmental Biomagic Species: Human /GateRanking: Tiger's Eye () Blood Group: B Likes: Chocolate Romance: Single ([evidence]), but see below for developments.
Plot: Some kind of hinted-at romance going on but, more recently, got locked in the basement of her department overnight at the start of term and watched a /Phoenix hatching. This phoenix (called /Daedalus) seems to be very attached to /Megaera.
Interaction with other characters: Big crush on /Yozhik. He feels the same. Much of their interaction (in the strip, anyway) is based around him talking to her about her magic. Then there was the whole /SnowBall plot - see below the SpoilerSpace below. Are they (finally) a couple as of , or not?
Hmmm, but there's a point. What happens when Sha'am needs to feed? Do phoenixes (is there a plural of phoenix?) glomp? I suspect not...
It could be fun to watch one try, although possibly not from the point of view of the target... - Kazuhiko
SunKitten? Is the name a reference to something? Not only can I _never_ spell it right but I've just realised I'm not even sure how you are supposed to pronounce it! :) - Kazuhiko
Assuming you mean her first name, it's the name of one of the three Furies of Greek mythos. I actually named her Machaera, originally, but changed the name because I like 'Megaera' better. The first name was from a book called The Colours in the Steel, or similar. The girl in the book, Machaera, was a side character - a slightly clumsy student who was more adept at magic than she knew (this isn't a spoiler for PhoenixFeathers). I liked the character and did a few designs which are very similar to Meg's current appearance. When I started illustrating the quotes, Megaera fitted into a certain place. PhoenixFeathers grew from the illustrated quotes.
So now you know. Oh, and I personally pronounce it Meg-eye-aira, but I could be wrong. Oneiros would know :) - SunKitten
And now the plot thickens. For it appears that /Yozhik is also a member of the /SnowBallCommittee, who are allowed just one dance each at the start of the ball. He [knows] that /Megaera is going in a cat mask, and tries to dance with her for his one dance, but accidentally picks the [wrong cat-girl]. Who, incidentally, is /Rin. Oops, silly boy. He [apologises] later.
