Krissy is very pale from her family living in the motel for her entire life. She has very wispy, light brown hair that is messier than not. Her eyes are a very pale green. After her father died in an accident, her mother became very withdrawn. Mallory took her under her wing and taught her how to make her own clothes later on in life, and after that her family started to dress better. She also has a brother who was eight years old at the time that Brothers Apart began.

She was the one to pull Walt out of the wreckage and nurse him back to health.

The water sprites of Aeternum live in the lush jungles of that realm, tending the plants to pass the endless time. The great plains and deserts of the realm surround their home, where the air sprites frolic in the skies. Past the plains lies the great volcano that is home to the fire sprites. Earth sprites, of course, live below all the different lands, tunneling in the warm embrace of the earth.

@brothersapart Congrats on your 1 year anniversary! You have so many colorful and interesting characters I just had to draw some! (sorry it’s a little late -.-;) Since there isn’t a lot of art of the other sprites, here’s my interpretation of the four type of sprites, I hope you like it 🙂

Anyway I adore this au sooo much and I hope you have a wonderful second year of BA!

Reincarnation and Rebirth

After Ilyana passed away and was reborn in the fires of the volcano, Elenia was given life. Unlike any other fire sprite before her, Elenia is gifted with the magic of the water sprites, given to her by Nixie during the rebirth cycle. Because of this her coloration and temperment is far different than any other fire sprite. While they are easy to provoke and quick to anger, she mirrors her water sprite sisters, keeping a cool head in any situation.

Noonia, the fire drake that Ilyana loved so much, had taken it upon herself to follow Elenia wherever she goes. If it’s up to Noonia, her best friend will not get herself into trouble alone, no matter what.

Regardless of what the future holds, these two will always be found together, and Elenia will keep that flos vitae of hers safe.

Spritely Facts:

Nixie’s affliction is caused by a dissonance in her mind. On one side, she is forbidden to do anything to stop Ilyana, or any other sprite. Technically, this stands for them as well, they cannot interfere with anything Nixie does. Because Ilyana was already on earth, working towards her own ends, this makes her purpose come first, or ‘primary.’ The bond with Sam was all that prevented Nixie from turning on both boys like the rest of the fire sprites. Surrendering to it – so completely that even her mind was lost to the bond – was all that kept her magic from dissipating.

They may be sprites in name, but a more fitting description would be to call them elementals. Their power was too much to have on the earth, so each of the four were sequestered to Aeternum upon their creation, to wait for when they were needed by either the gods or any mortals to discover their summoning. They do have the ability to leave Aeternum on their own via the portal used in the first story, they simply don’t see any reason to. Probably for the best for all involved, as passions can run high when the different sisters encounter each other.

Another reason they are technically forbidden to interfere with each other… can you imagine the power of a sister squabble if she has the power of a tidal wave or an earthquake at her beck and call? Humans call a fight like that a cat fight, Aeternum sprites call them Armageddon.

One last important note: Aeternum sprites are all female, and call each other ‘sisters,’ regardless of element. They are also asexual, by and large with a few exceptions, and have no desire to seek out intimacy the way humans are drawn to each other. This does not, however, prevent them from seducing a person. This isn’t a form of sexual attraction for them. It is a different style of manipulation, and the sprites are well-versed in the art.

Wonderful artwork of Nixie under her affliction commissioned from Mogadeer (tumblr –
