Name: Samantha MiCadden – usually just called Sam
Appearance: Energetic and a bit wild at first take in, has rebellious brown hair and blue slit eyes, the exact height and build of Kite which means other than their hair, they’ve been mistaken for each other in childhood. Sam is the more eager, self-indulgent, bouncy personality naturally and much of this rubbed off onto Kite, who in turn calmed Sam down a bit. She likes shiny things and dressing up in skirts and dresses.
Location: Sam grew up in the same care place and first tier as Kite before they were parted and Sam spent the rest of her time in the Cradle where she lives for as far as we know about her. She has unofficial residences in Fvit and on the east coast and Galeez because of her friends in those places. She travels at need, but prefers staying where she’s comfortable.
Work: It’s unknown what Sam wanted to do as a child, but she was picked up by a very old and respected reader in her second tier education where she was educating in the ways of board reading and took to it quite well. When her mentor died, she was shared around a few other apprenticeships and learnt other forms of reading: star gazing, crystals, signs in nature, palm reading, tea reading. She is probably one of the most gifted common readers in Tantus – most with her level of expertise and skill take on the rank of Privileged, but she refused and continues to refuse the offer. It’s assumed she makes a comfortable income, as all class of people come to her for reading, and she funds a lot of the Resistance needs, but previous to that spends a lot of it on herself before realizing other people are more in need than her.
Magic: Reading is a skill and has nothing to do with magic, has only a tiny command of magic that allow her to catch and throw small things close to her: this is only observed when she is crystal reading.
Relationships: Her best and closest friend has always been Kite and they shared a friend group in younger years. Both thrive on social interaction, Sam even more so, and so she’s always been surrounded with friends and gotten on well with all of them. Of her notable relationships is Shendera, which is a bit of a strange friendship for a time, and Gregory who is like a younger cousin to her. The extent of her friendships and connections is shown post TCM3.
Personal: Although not as well read as Kite, Sam makes up for it with street smarts. She picks up and fluently speaks Al’terran, as she does live in the Cradle. She’s born Cattarim 27, 15,875, about a month apart from Kite. She absolutely loves dancing but is not very good at it, or she might have tried to make a career out of it, but her chess skill is better than Kite and on part with Timethy. She likes drinks of all kinds and appreciates when something new is mixed for her.
Personality: Sam is happy and energetic by nature, pulling up the mood of a group and fairly well connected, easy going and laughs at herself. She is a bit of a pleasure seeker and a bit vain, but this does change over time as she gradually discovers that others need her help and she gives up her self-indulgence, but keeps her cheer. She’s well connected but has no interest moving up the class system. Every so often she goes through a bought of depression but usually someone is there to pull her out of it. She’s an asset to any team, a best friend to whoever needs her.
