Baleena is a Buddha Bear, so called because of their tendency to sit motionless for hours as they are natural dreamers, though they have a tendency to let their minds wander. Like many of the animal races in Harmonia, they speak and have developed fingers to play instruments. Baleena and her brother Bilby are nine and ten in human years, and while quite a bit more accomplished at ordinary magic than human kids of that age, they are just learning the skills of imaginating, shapeshifting and traveling through the Etherium.
They are really quite extraordinary at finding herbs in the forest for Selena so she often sends them on expeditions. Because of their ability to remain motionless, they can hide from danger almost indefinitely. Like all Buddha Bears, they love to dance. Baleena studies bass with Dando and she can hold her own in any jam.Close
Ariel is made of light. The density and color of her body can change depending on her mood. She sleeps in rays of light which also serve to nourish her.
She sings, plays the guitar, harp or any stringed instrument, and in fact, can shapeshift herself into any instrument.
Her primary special power is the ability to vanish instantly and become light, therefore she can travel freely in the Etherium. She can cloak opponents in her aura without them even knowing she's there.
As a healer, her specialty is healing the energy body of someone who is ill or wounded.
She and her brother Abu are the guardians of the A, Ab* and A#* Runes.
Gee is about 8 years old in human years. Gee is quite silly and is always flitting around and laughing. A remarkable thing the ghosts can do is merge with solid things including living beings. When they go inside someone it tickles and makes them laugh.
Gee and her brother Goo are made of light. They are not really ghosts like on Earth. They are really Light Beings. There are a number of species of Light Beings on Harmonia and the Ghosts or Ukuku (in Ethra, the native language of Harmonia) are one of them.
Musically, their specialty is song and dance routines which they love. They are also excellent harmony singers for background vocals and choirs.
Flicksie likes to take care of everyone. She is caring and thoughtful. She is also meticulous in whatever she does and Flicks (as her best friend Ariel calls her) can do almost anything. Her house is always clean and her garden well tended. The Guardians often gather at her house for tea or supper since she is an excellent cook.
The making clothes, or anything to do with fabric including sails for ships, is part of the heritage of the Faerie clan. Flicksie makes clothes and embroiders things for everyone. That is, when she is not practicing the violin at which she is brilliant. She is the first chair violinist when the Guardians play classical music. They often perform her compositions.
Flicksie also loves calligraphy and paints watercolors. She is very deft with the art of household magic and has a talent for making amulets and magical symbols.Close
Eve the Elf is quiet and shy. That's why it's kind of surprising that her best friend is Dreena the Dragon who is quite loud and boisterous.
Eve's house is always very neat and her bit of garden perfectly tended. She practices a lot and loves the woods, so she goes there often to play music. She is also very skilled in the gathering and use of medicinaly herbs and a great cook. Her people are from Eledor, the City of the Elves.
Eve inherited her forebears talents for art and jewelry making. She makes things for all the Guardians. She is also an instrument maker and has a shop at the Grand Staff Tree to repair instruments.
Eve is about thirteen in human years.
Dreena is the best drummer out of all the Guardians. Both her and her brother Dando are quite fond of Jazz and Blues music, although both are excellent sight readers when they play in the orchestra.
Dreena loves to chatter and is very superstitious. She collects amulets and is always casting spells which often go awry or don't work altogether. She is not quite diligent in her magical studies and attention to detail. For this reason, Selena does not give her any power that Dreena could cause mayhem with from her random spellcasting.
Dragons are one of the strongest Clans in Harmonia and have a tremendous lore of magic that every child is naturally born with. They must, however study and practice to awaken it. Being eight years old in human years, Dreena is still quite averse to doing 'homework'.
Centaurs are distant cousins of the Roan and share the same ancestral lands on the Plains of Ra. Carina gives off an air of quiet mastery. She is very self confident and disdains from giving anyone 'rides' although she sometimes lets Enor the Elf ride her. Carina and her brother maintain a stoic nature, they love to play music. Carina is a brilliant pianist. She prefers classical music, but can swing almost as well as Dando when they're playing jazz or bluegrass music.
She and her brother Crysandor can run faster than even the Roan. On the Lunarum, the Clans of Centaurs, Roan and the Illimani gather on the plains of Ra.
The Centaurs are excellent archers.
Bilby and his sister Baleena would both rather dream or play than practice. Selena is always after them to do their studies. But they're always up for a jam, where they are constantly trying to out do each other in their solos.
Bilby is very affectionate and friendly. He will jump in your lap even if he doesn't know you. He and his sister don't talk a lot and they say they don't know mindspeak, but Selena suspects otherwise because they spend so much time in dreaming.
The Buddha Bear clan lives in Woodwind forest where they can often be seen dancing in a circle when the moons become full of light.
Abu is an amazing singer and pianist, He is made of light like his sister Ariel. They share many of the same traits such as sleeping and getting nourished in rays of light, changing body densities and color, traveling in the Etherium, and the ability to heal with energy.
Although not formally recognized as the head Guardian, Abu is often put in charge by Selena. He is absolutely responsible to the point of stubbornness and arrogance at times. However he is brilliant, talented, soulful, and is always writing new songs.
In the effort to defeat Oudovdun, his strategies prove to be invaluable.
He is a Guardian of the A, Ab and A# Runes.
Flick is about 10 yrs old in human years. He has a low power rating because he is quite hyperactive and instead of studying, all he likes to is fly as fast as he can, surf, snowboard, play music and eat. He is still young, wild and irresponsible but with a magical charisma that brings everyone to forgive him for not doing chores or helping in the gardens or constantly playing the guitar while hovering over people.
Flick is not that great at archery or anything where he has to practice besides music, surfing or snowboarding. He is fearless and reckless. He once tried to chase down Thron the Black Fire Dragon as the great beast flew overhead, but luckily Thron only warned him with a breath of scorching steam. Flick stayed at his sister Flicksie's house for a month while she healed his singed wings.
Goo is seven in human years. He is a lot like his sister Gee except Goo is always trying to prove he's just as capable and brave as everyone else even though he's young and small. He is therefore always trying to follow Flick around who he idolizes.
Goo is a Light Being, but unlike the Angels, his body doesn't change densities. He does get moody and depressed sometimes wishing he was a solid. He and his sisters are natural dreamers and can travel through the Etherium at will. In fact that is where the Light Beings originate in the first place.
Goo loves to sing and dance. He often imaginates a top hat and cane and does a routine with his sister much to everyone's delight.
Crysandor is taciturn and reserved. He is a perfectionists in his craft of music and fascinated with the more esoteric aspects of the Scrolls of Mur, the ancient magical texts of which the Música Harmónia is just one book.
He and his sister are fearless and are often positioned by Selena at the front and back of any expedition. And they don't mind carrying people's surfboards to the beach!
Crysandor is about 15 in human years.
Enor the Elf is about twelve in human years. He is also quiet but not so shy. Enor is very skilled at woodworking and share the same shop with his his sister Eve. He helps her with instruments, when he's not working on a new table for someone or carving a likeness of Mearali the Goddes of Music. All the Guardians are hand to some degree. Along with playing music, they trade things they've made to the local folk for food and other items. Enor's favorite thing to make are canoes for the Rhythm River.
Like the Centaurs, Enor and his sister are excellent archers.
Dando is nine in human years, but nine year old dragons are quite accomplished. He is the best jazz bass player of the Guardians and he and his sister form an awesome rhythm section.
Unlike his sister, Dando is not that interested in magic. He mostly just wants to eat, sleep, play music and practice flying. Neither he nor his sister can make it all the way to the ground from the top of Grand Staff Tree yet. It is quite common to hear one or another of the Guardians shouting when the dragons roll into them after crash landing. He has by far the loudest laugh of anyone and the loudest snoring. Once, they tried to fit him with a trumpet mute!
