The Twins

Even though I call these characters "The Twins" doesn't mean that they are twins or even remotely related. I only call them that because their story revolves around the two of them. They are a yin and yang type of story. Good and evil, black and white, harmony and chaos. They show that there is no such thing as "good and evil" only different points of view.

Mikala

Mikala (or Miki for short) is a member of the Dark species, specifically of the Blue faction. She is on a pilgrimage mission to seek out the Nexus Core and commune with it. Mikala has the outward appearance of a young Kaith, basically a cat eared race from the Pinwheel Galaxy. Because the Pinwheel galaxy is one of the newer galaxies to be explored very little is known of the races there.

She appears as a small child, maybe 7 or 8 years of age and wears a Kimono because "it's comfortable". Her actual age is undefined, as in the Dark Realm her existence is non corporal in nature. Her defining trait would be her blue eyes. Kaith don't have blue eyes though most people wouldn't know that fact. When agitated or angry they turn into a dark bluish hue which is an indication of her true nature. She wields a fan as a magical medium to unlock her true powers. Most of the time she uses it to bash Drumas over the head when he acts up.

She also carries a pocket watch on her at all times. As a member of the Dark species her race has no concept of time. You can imagine the Dark realm as a large white room with no features. Without any markers or objects in motion to designate the passage of time the Dark never developed a means to measure time. The past is the same as the future, the future is the same as the present. As such Mikala sometimes has trouble measuring time in the corporal realm. One time she tried to convince a freighter captain to take a detour to the Andromeda Galaxy from the Pinwheel Galaxy and couldn't understand why a 1500 year detour was such a big issue. The watch was given to her by an "old friend" that she doesn't talk about.

Physical Characteristics: She is a loli cat-girl character. Blue Eyes, Long Black hair, and black ears with a bit of white at the tips. She wears a black Kimono with a Sakura pattern and traditional sandals. She carries a kinchaku-bag in one hand and a fan in another. She carries her pocketwatch attached to her Obi.

Drumas Roe

Drumas Roe is a progeny child from the Ensandean Empire who is enrolled in the League Academy on Tella III in the Milky Way galaxy. He is taking part in a courier mission to the Nexus Core as part of his basic training. Ensandean's are humanoid and don't have much magical affinity. As such despite being in close long term proximity to Mikala he doesn't sense her true nature.

He is 9 years of age with white ashen hair which is his defining physical trait. He is young, and inexperienced, but he doesn't want to be criticized because of his youth. That is why at times he is prone to mistakes when pressured. He is very talented with machines and computers and knows how to handle a weapon if need be. He tried hard to follow the rules and do things by the book.

Physical Characteristics: Short White hair, young boy. He wears a white uniform, with black shoes. Very sharp looking. His uniform bears the badge of the Overseers. He has a jeweled studded sky blue earring on his left ear that serves as a neural interface and communication device.

Basic Summary

The Twins are on an Ensandran transport towards the Nexus Core Worlds when they are attacked by Irindi rebels while docked who were incited by the Dark at the beginning of the Rebellion series. They become caught up in the ensuing conflict. Drumas meets Mikala prior to boarding and helps her recover her fan from some pick pockets. She doesn't want to use her magic in a public space out of fear of drawing unwanted attention to herself.

Drumas tries to speak down to the thieves, citing the local penal code and is about to get his ass kicked when the local police finally arrive. Mikala had used the distraction that Drumas was creating to call over the police to help with the situation. Drumas thinks he is he reason the police came to help. While Mikala took her fan back and ignored him after calling him an idiot.

Afterwords when the transport is raided Mikala saves Drumas after he tries to be "the hero" and unlocks a small portion of her abilities that drives the Irindi pirates into a self induced madness. She forced them to face the manifestations of the dark half of their souls. As a result they ended up stranded on a Unaligned World. Where there are no authorities to appeal to for help. Just as the Galaxy erupts into war.
