Hannah has just moved away from her town where witch hunting is getting out of control and gone to live near her cousin's. She's quite reserved, having previously experienced bullying at her old school but is fortunately getting her confidence back slowly but surely. She can be quite immature, normally teasing her cousin, Ashley, in front of his friends (to put him down a peg or two) and very frank. She's learning to speak her mind again and is ready to protest and rebel against the Witch Hunts thanks to Connor's influence. She has the same impulsiveness to jump straight into rebelling without thinking of the consequences.
Anarchist in the making. There are years of anger boiling up there and Connor's about to finally blow. He hates the government, he hates discrimination, and he thinks he's the guy to stand up and start a fight. He's opinionated as hell - there's not really a topic that he doesn't have an opinion of. He's quite the open character. What you see is what you get... apart from the witch thing but that's due to change. He's loud, confident, and he thinks he can turn the law around. If I had to have an image of Connor it would probably be a cross between Sid Vicious and Christian Slater in Heathers.
Theresa 'Tess' Denver
Theresa is probably the quietest character of the trio even though she mainly leads the circles. While Hannah and Connor are ready to bring their own anarchy Tess is in the background, warning and warning them. But she can have a sharp tongue if necessary. Seriously... don't piss her off too much. If you're not going to listen to her she'll make sure you do. It's honestly for your own good. She's dealing with her own discrimination, fed up at school about the gossip and attitude towards her. Really, she's just looking forward to the day where she can get the hell out and go off to university very far away. She's tempted to rebel but her step-uncle's parishioners give her hope that there are better ways to start standing up and she has supporters.
Bullied like Hannah, Ashley thought the best defence was fitting in more and he's done so. He's happier with more friends and a better social life. So of course he's the one who's abilities just mess up all the time. If he hasn't bothered trying to control his gifts then they're just going to go haywire on him. So he's always alert, paranoid, and worrying to point where his nails must be chewed off. He's absolutely worried sick of being found out and killed. Naturally he's freaking out all the time when Hannah moves to town and gets to know Connor more. They're only going to cause trouble for him.
And those are my new playthings. :) I'm looking forward to writing their story.
