IN THE WAKING - JAMES "Jimmy" DEVLIN
James Devlin, Jimmy to friends, is currently wasting his 20's in the employ of a major New York insurance company. Working data entry, Jimmy spends his days under Damocles's sword of obsolescence.
When Jimmy doesn't go home from his dead-end job to his shitty apartment, he's either spending time at the local retirement home
(court-appointed community service for some legal
trouble he got into) or he's engaged in the one thing that gives him an escape from his miserable fucking life: music. Jimmy is something of a musical prodigy, a talent that he's all but pissing away as a member of a cover band, The Arms of Morpheus
. Caitlin and Jimmy are very similar people. Both derive heady sexual energy from performing rock & roll, typically leading to post-performance casual sex. Caitlin's talented fingers typically play the keyboards, but she takes vocals to rock out to classics by such giants as Joan Jett, Sheena Easton, Annie Lennox, and Lady Gaga. Jimmy pines for Caitlin more than he would like to admit, relishing their time together. As Jimmy has been known to say, "that girl is sex on a stick!"
JOAQUIN DE LA ROSA. Joaquin is very proud of his heritage. He sees himself as a "Latin Lover" that's a few ab crunches away from being the next Antonio Banderas. Joaquin might actually have a lot going for him, if he could lay off of the cannabis. He's typically too stoned to do much other than work as a short-order cook at the local 24-hour greasy spoon (a waste of his culinary talents; he could easily be a professional sous-chef). His bandmates insist that he be at least mostly sober for performances, which is when Joaquin's non-culinary skills shine. His guitar work (typically bass, though occasionally he "trades up") is nearly on par with Jimmy's, and he has the perfect voice for covering 80's rock bands like Guns 'N' Roses, Poison, Mötley Crüe, etc.ALAN KILROY
. Alan is the soft-spoken drummer of Arms of Morpheus. He drives a cargo van to haul the band's equipment around. He and Joaquin are best friends. He doesn't get high nearly as often as his friend, nor does he do anything to get his friend off the wacky-weed. He is the only member of the band who doesn't sing. He aspires to make a name for himself as a drummer by combining drumming with his secret passion: beatboxing.IN THE DREAMING - DOBHAILEIN
Dobhailein is an adventuring wizard, the son of the famous wizard Merlin and an Unseelie witch.
Raised by three faery godmothers, Dobhailein has led an interesting
life, and he will gladly regale anyone willing to listen with a tale. Dobhailein, more colloquially known as "Devlin," is currently in service to High King Nuada, having accepted the duty of escorting Lady Adrasteia on a perilous quest.
As a wizard with Sidhe blood, Dobhailein is able to change his shape at will into most any bird or beast, fish or fowl. He is capable of working certain spells, but in combat he primarily relies on his quarterstaff or dagger (or the previously mentioned theriomorphing) He also carries a faery flute, with which he has been known to evoke a strong emotional response.
