Baba Gurl[]

Vector is a shy boy with glowing yellow eyes and unknown origins. He has powerful magical abilities, but cannot control them and does not entirely understand how they work.[1]

Appearance[]

Vector's scar

Vector has dark, freckled skin and chocolate colored hair. Vector's most notable feature is his glowing, yellow eyes. His irises and pupils are both solid yellow. Along with his eyes, Vector has pointed ears and teeth. It is revealed in chapter one that he also has a rather large scar on his back. It is unclear where it came from, but due to the context of the diologue when it was revealed, it was probably from someone attacking him.

Vector is first shown wearing a white shirt with a gray vest over it. More recently, Vector wears a blue-gray shirt, Arianna's cloak, and boots Arianna bought for him at The Highlands Inn.

Personality[]

Vector is very shy and will often shy away from other people. He's easily scared and is afraid of people being afraid of him. When he's afraid he starts crying and shivering. Usually he'll scream or then go on a long winded rant.

Vector loves to read, and it's implied that he often stays up all night, reading. Reading seems to be his favorite pastime, and he often wonders if other kids enjoy reading as much as he does.

Vector appears to be very smart from living in a bookstore. He often refers back to books he's read, such as remembering what Feron is known for or the difference between something being poisonous and venomous. He also seems to have acute problem solving skills, as he was able to figure out that water was what caused Frankie to go mad and attack.

Background[]

Vector's origins are unknown, even to him. He's able to do magic without a magi gem, but he doesn't know how to control it. Most people, with currently only five known exceptions, will suddenly grow afraid when they see his yellow glowing eyes. Because of this, he shuts himself in and makes an effort to avoid eye contact with people.

Vector was abandoned as a baby, and to this day has no clue who his real parents are, or he was a meteor cast off from the ritual in the prologue. He lived at Petalgrove Books with his guardian, Marion. He didn't go outside or talk to anyone until Arianna took him from his home and turned him in for bounty at the Capitol. Something bad happened in the past that caused Marion angst about what would happen if someone saw him.

At the Capitol he is handed over to the guards to be killed for "high treason", even though he is sure of his innocence. He starts screaming and a hot magic surrounds him. In a sudden surge of magic, he transports both himself and Arianna to a forest in Kardia.

He and Arianna are currently trying to get home with the help of Frankie.

Relationships[]

Arianna[]

Vector and Arianna have a complex relationship. Arianna can be rude to Vector just as she is with most people. She will often taunt Vector, but their relationship is good. Ari has nicknamed Vector "Twitchy" and was one of the few people not scared of Vector

Frankie[]

Frankie is another one of the people not scared of Vector. Frankie really just wants to be friends with him. Despite nearly killing him and Arianna, (chapter 5) Vector seems to trust Frankie.

Marion[]

Marion is very protective of Vector, and Vector loves her as a mother figure. Marion is very upset that Arianna took Vector from her, and Vector is upset that Marion got hurt. Despite being a mother figure, Marion has been shown to be afraid of Vector.

Marina[]

Marina is one of the few characters who is not afraid of Vector when looking into his eyes. She is perfectly willing to help him when she finds him washed up on her island.

Rori[]

Rori is another character that is not scared to look Vector in the eyes.
