Quick, partial spoiler bios of the characters. Facts that might not otherwise appear in the story. Sketches of them to be included where relevant. Today we’re looking at the two main male protagonists at the beginning of Tears of the Phoenix. Sypher Hawq and Asuran Stein.
As we continue, we’ll be taking a look at other major characters and some minor ones as well. Just some fun stuff. Along the way, I’ll also be posting some sketches of what the characters look like.
Sypher [Morpheus] Hawq – male
Hun Xue’Er – orange fox
Affiliations: none officially known. Apparently, everyone.
Appearance: Wears long, light brown, stripped down trench coat. Vest and white collar shirt. A scarf on top of that. Prep-school with a trench coat, yes?
Notes: Initial narrator book one. Age 19. Initially possesses Thunder KttT (mask).
Stein’s roommate their first year. A likable person. Exceptionally talented. Perhaps surpassing anyone else we’ll meet in the books. He knows more than he should and kept a journal of that act. He can see the universe as it seeps through his dreams, though he doesn’t always understand what he’s looking at. Probably as much responsible for formation of the Dark Masters as anyone else.
Has romantic feelings towards Stein. Though, he is probably unaware of it himself, that’s how he’s written. Not gay or bisexual. I’d classify him more as willing to sleep with anyone or anything. Not the type to sleep around. Just, open to the idea of sharing. If you think that’s confusing, go read Elfquest.
Enjoys playing the piano. Hates quiet moments to himself, but also hates socializing. Likes to break the rules, only because he’s rather bored and that’s how he entertains himself. Not a criminal in that sense.
