My name is Elphyra Woodbriar, and I was born into a lineage of Witches from thousands of years back. The women of my family have always been guardians on the Steppe of Magic--the place where magic and the world collide. We guard over towns and villages, we're found in cities and the country, and each of us is charged with keeping the monsters at bay--using any means needed. Most of us have a few close friends from both humans and Otherkin, and they help us shield the world against the chaos that lurks in the shadows. But sometimes, the monsters get through, and that's where I come in--protecting Starlight Hollow with my magic and my wits. Meanwhile, together with Fancypants--my dragonette--and my circle of friends, I muddle through life, love, and danger, as best as I can.
