This is Loni, one of my characters. She is also from my story The Wars of Lamias. She is a tipsy mage who was abandoned by her colony (of other mages) because she couldn't cast powerfull magic. They deserted her and she went in search of meaning. Loni was forced to learn how to forage and scrounge which she would never have to do in her rich race of mages. She always blamed herself and conidered herself a failure for not being able to cast any magic. She soon found an answer. Upon being attacked by a considerably large Conshi ( A mix between a lion and a wolf) a dragon saved her life. This dragon, sadly, was the only one of her race that could not speak, but none the less she took Loni under her wing (heehee.. no pun intended!) and protected Loni from 'many dangers toils and snares'. Soon after, Morgan found Loni. They became friends instantly, and Loni and Drake (the dragon) joined Morgan's group.
