Have I really not done a character in THREE WEEKS?!?!?!?!!!
i guess not…. What with all the Christmas and New Year’s stuff going on, working my way up to a hundred pages in my Introspections novel (now called Pestilence for the indefinite future), putting mashups on SoundCloud, and just feeling the effects of Heromachine-lack-of-focus-itis, who can blame me?
Quick note: I entered Himmler into the Party contest (because he’s a member of the Nazi PARTY, get it?)
Tonight’s character is another supporting player that I mentioned in a past character bio, this time from the bio of Linda Norgood, my Elemental Witch of Water. It’s Locasta, former ruler of Atlantis and Linda’s mother. Locasta’s twin sister is coming soon.

Name: Locasta
Race: Atlantean
Birthplace: Atlantis
Abilities: Trilingual (English/Irish/Atlantean), High lung capacity, High tolerance of pressure changes, Skilled diplomat, swimmer, and warrior, Former Atlantean royalty.
Bio: Locasta was once the ruler of the lost underwater city of Atlantis, until the day she met and fell in love with a human naval officer named Timothy Norgood, who had an almost Atlantean tolerance for the treacherous nature of the open sea. In stature and character, he was her equal, and they remained equals and partners in life until the day he died in service to his country.
By that time, she had already given birth to their daughter, Linda. Her depression compounded by grief over her husband’s death, Locasta deemed herself unfit to rule and abdicated the throne to her sister (morally not the best choice for interim queen, but the only choice available to her under Atlantean law). Locasta made a new home on the Irish mainland and raised her daughter in peace, eventually discovering Linda’s Tonntan abilities and training her how to understand and respect the water she controlled.
Fearing she would lose the throne to not one but two generations (even though only half Atlantean, Linda could also legally take the throne in the event of her mother’s and aunt’s deaths), Locasta’s twin sister Jocasta hired a young Lasair assassin to kill Locasta and Linda on the day Linda came to legal age.
Linda bore witness to her mother’s murder and used her powers to escape, living to plot her revenge against Theodora Kindle.
