Sparrow is extremely childish and spoiled, but rarely is how she appears on the surface. She is loud and obnoxious but despite seeming so outgoing she is extremely guarded. She often makes insensitive comments and looks down on other people. Lost in her own universe (which revolves around her), she cares little for anybody except for her adopted brother, Alister.


Roles and Relationships

  • Alister is her adopted brother.
    • She is in secretly love with him (Edmund is the only one who she's told, though San has hinted at knowing).
  • Currently sleeping with San, but is not in a relationship with him.
  • Has difficulty maintaining friendships and typically sabotages them.
  • Previously had a short relationship with Edmund, though it's unclear whether or not she ever truly had feelings for him.
  • In the Bandit's Landing storyline, she is still Alister's (adopted) sister and has had a past relationship with San.

    • She's extremely jealous of Alister's friendship with Edmund and has tried several times to drive them apart, with no success.

History

Bandit's Landing
Sparrow's family was very rich, and she had an extremely spoiled childhood. Her father was a high cleric and spent most of his time away from home, traveling to survey churches scattered throughout neighboring cities and nations. Her mother was of very poor health (but hid her condition from her daughter) and was killed by a mugger when Sparrow was very young. Sparrow had been walking home with her mother from church and her mother stopped to rest while Sparrow ran ahead, and when she came back she found her mother dead. After his wife's death, Sparrow's father became obsessed with his work and spent even less time at home, leaving Sparrow under the care of her nannies and other hired help. When she was twelve years old her father came home with Alister, and Sparrow was elated to have a new little brother (even though she treated him more like a new toy). As they grew older she developed feelings for Alister, keeping them secret until she eventually confessed how she felt. Unfortunately he didn't take the confession well, and left. Sparrow became angry with herself and decided she needed a completely new life, so she left her home and became a druid.

Beneath the Midnight Sun
Sparrow's history in the separate storyline is not specified, but it is similar to her history in the Bandit's Landing storyline. Her mother still died when Sparrow was young, and Alister is still her adopted brother. While Alister was going to med school she stayed close by, calling him all the time to stay close to him. After Edmund visited with Alister for the holidays one year she started getting closer to Edmund, starting an unstable relationship with him to create distance between him and Alister. When her meddling proved fruitless, she moved to Canada without notice, calling Alister a couple of weeks later immensely depressed in a successful attempt to convince him to drop everything to be with her. With Edmund more or less out of the picture, she was satisfied until Alister started having more problems with his anxiety and panic attacks, so she decided they would move back to the states for a change of scenery.
