Now, I'll be introducing the characters for Fan-Tasi (Fantasy.) 
And if you weren't here for the last character reveal, I'll remind you!

And what is the setting of this game of D&D? Glad you asked!
The lands of Bookia is under attack! The Genres (the rulers of their respective domains) have summoned the best of the best to fight the evil rival empire of Technologia whose people are dedicated to eradicating and turning obsolete the wonderful land of Bookia. But as the Genres don't mix well, these fighters are a motley group of healers, warriors, and wizards.

And now...for the main event.

The introduction of the first set of characters! I'll be dividing the team up into genres and introducing them one by one.

She broke free of her chains and went on the run. She stumbled into Lifeblood and fell in love with the mayor’s son. The boy was killed, though, in a battle against spies of Technologia and she went on a rampage. When Fan-Tasi searched for more representatives, Adelina volunteered, vowing revenge.
