Nesaka was just a poor girl, orphaned by bandits and raised by an innkeeper who only kept her because it meant an unpaid pair of hands. Then her magic began to bloom. She has the ability to walk in dreams, as well as normal magic - but at times, HER dreams decide to walk the waking world, and cannot be defeated until she awakens. Nesaka despaired of ever learning to control her powers, and honestly considered giving up, until she met her soulmate - another dreamwalker. The two met often in dreams, until one day a powerful dream grabbed both of them and became reality (that's were Nesaka found her staff, btw). They escaped the dream, and were rescued by a pair of sorcerers from a school of magic. Now they're learning how to use their magic, and how to keep their pasts from using them. Hmmm. Nesaka will likely become another character that you'll see a lot of in my pictures. I like her and I've got a lot of character sketches of her. I loathe the background in this one - I didn't mean for it to come out so . . . so . . . fractured-looking.
