The first actual character I made up for one of my non-published novels. His name is Sean Maul. He's from a different bloodline than humans, he is, in my story, a Cala. Cala are people (by my definition) who are born from a different blood line and have animal characteristics. They also weild the power to do almost ANYTHING at will, which is why their race could faulter to instinction at almost any war if they were battling against eachother.
