[Out of Character Note: This character is being far more honest than she would actually be, since in her world it's not safe to be honest about these things.]
Hi, I'm Soira. I'm 12 years old. I grew up in a small town, but just this year I moved to a big city. I guess I'm pretty intelligent. I tend to think things through a lot before I act, sometimes I kind of zone out because I'm thinking so much. My main pasttime is interacting with other kids in my class, though recently I've gotten into trying to solve crimes too.
I have a big secret, though. I have magic. I can read people's minds, and project thoughts or sensations to them, such as making Zora feel like someone hit her with a spitball.
Most people think mages are evil and should be executed. I guess mages do cause a lot of problems, but it's not our fault. Magic sort of makes you use it. If I go too long without messing with someone's head, I start to get twitchy and unsettled, and the urge to do it gets stronger and stronger until I give in. And it seems to be getting worse over time. When I was really little just looking into someone's mind was enough to satisfy me, but now that's pretty much nothing - I need to affect something instead of just looking. It really scares me, because in my old town, I accidentally broke something in one of my classmates and made her go nuts, and my teacher almost figured out what I was doing.
At least I don't have earthquake magic like that one guy I heard about. An earthquake is a lot more noticeable than one kid having weird thoughts.
