    If looked in the eye, it would be very clear that Caitlin was earnest, both in what she had said about raising her niece, and about wanting to be able to help. She genuinely cared, and even appeared to understand the difficulties in trusting others. She could empathise with the hesitation in doing so, even at her own age and with all her experiences, Cate still had a hard time herself in being able to rely on others. She didn't push anything though, and simply offered a gentle nod as the girl mentioned that she didn't intend to take the exams. The woman supposed that might be for the best, especially since it seemed the girl had barely turned up to classes this year. "Well, when you're up to it, then I would like to discuss your options for study next year, and what kinds of plans you might have for your future. There's no rush though, take some time to think about what you'd like for yourself, and then maybe we can work out what studies will be best suited to what you want," Caitlin nodded with another warm smile. At least taking another year to study was better than simply deciding to drop out, it would grant Maxine more options for her future, in case she decided that she wanted to go on to further studies. "I agree, we always hold those important to us close to our hearts," The woman nodded gently, her free hand going to the chain she wore, which appeared to have two pendants hanging from it, a violet and a green. Her gaze took on a faraway look for a few moments, before her eyes closed almost thoughtful. She then opened them to look upon Max again and there was a sad tiredness in her gaze, "Still, I was very much alone, fresh out of school, and suddenly the sole carer of my baby niece. I didn't trust anyone, and that meant I missed out on a lot of my youth. It's hard to enjoy being young and carefree when your life revolves around trying to balance work, study, and the wellbeing of a child - not that I'm implying that you're going to be caught in that situation." Cate chuckled softly, "But definitely, enjoy being young while you can, especially if you have others who care about you." The woman nodded lightly, her gaze then shifting to the charms that were dancing in her palm. "You seem like a lovely young woman, from what I've been able to tell so far, Maxine. I would really like to see you live your best life," Caitlin said softly as her bracelet charms seemed to return to their original places and become inanimate once again, before she put the jewellery back on. She then looked to the girl with another small smile, "When you've recovered more then I'd like to talk with you again about your options for gaining independence, and go over any ideas you have about what you would like to do when you finish school, if the latter is something you would be up for talking about anyway. Does that sound alright to you?"

    "Trust is a two way street. Whether between older and younger people, parents and children, siblings, strangers... But because some teachers have not agreed to try and help you learn something before, it doesn't mean that all won't. At least, personally speaking, my stance when I was raising my niece was that as long as she was honest with me then I would try to support her as best as I could. And I try to do the same with students," Caitlin spoke gently as she offered a gentle smile. She knew the feeling all too well, remembered very clearly her own distrust of others in her youth, struggling to do everything herself because she only had herself. It was not an easy life, and she was simply glad that Maxine did seem to have at least a few people that she could apparently rely on, even if she didn't trust teachers. The news that Maxine was being kept back was new to her though, it hadn't been in the girl's recent reports and so she concluded that it must have been a very new piece of information, or perhaps the girl's own prediction of what she expected due to her performance this year? It wasn't often that anyone was really held back in their final year, not unless they were practically a danger to themselves and others because their scores were just that bad. "That's news to me, since it's not been recorded yet that you're staying back a year, but I'll make a note of it later. Who actually told you that, if I might ask?" Caitlin queried with a tilt of her head. It was at least something that she should definitely have been informed about. She was supposed to be able to counsel students, and someone who was being held back definitely warranted a little extra attention, or at least be asked to speak with her about their options for the coming year and how to make things better for themselves. However, she then smiled again and nodded, "Of course I will help you to get your freedom, and be able to stay in your dorm. My job is to assist the students in being able to do the best for themselves, Maxine. I'll help you to organise a part time job so that you can support yourself, and make sure that you have proper representation for your emancipation, and whatever else you need assistance with," She nodded, picking up her notebook a moment to jot down a few more things for herself to remember, not that she ever forgot. "Thank you. And if you do want some help with something in the future, you are always welcome to seek me out. Even if it's not something I know much about, I know a lot of different people, and certainly there would be someone who can," The woman beamed warmly toward Maxine, her smile even brighter as she watched and listened to how she considered the ring. The woman then pulled the sleeve of her blouse from her wrist to show off a small silver charm bracelet with a number of intricate silver charms of all kinds of creatures and figures. Taking it off, she set it on the bed a moment and then tapped the head of one of the charms, and suddenly they all seemed to come to life, detaching from the bracelet and prancing around, dancing or goofing off. "Gifts from family are always important," She murmured gently as she watched the charms, "This was from my brother. He was the only person I had growing up. I didn't trust anyone else. So, when I lost him..." She trailed off as she smiled sadly. "It's why I try to help young people like yourself, Maxine. No one should have to struggle on their own, or feel like they can't trust anyone. I'm happy you have at least a couple of people you can rely on though. But my door will still be open if you ever need another," Looking to the girl again, she offered another gentle nod, before holding her hand out onto the bed for the charms to climb into her palm, carrying the bracelet with them.

    "Actually, making foam is taught in a lot of muggle schools, science projects and all," Caitlin lifted a brow and then shook her head gently, "Students aren't chased for learning something new, it's when someone is very obviously trying to hide something that concerns are raised." She pointed out, "If you had simply asked a teacher if they could help you out then there would have been no cause for concern. Granted, any teacher would be curious as to why you want to learn something as particular as that spell, and rightfully so considering the kinds of trouble once can potentially get into with an invisibility or cloaking spell. It's the job of the staff here to ensure the safety of the students as well as their development, and keep them out of trouble. No one is trying to hinder anyone's learning, we're here to assist with it." The woman inhaled gently, but then she set her notebook on the floor beside her chair and rested her hands on her lap as she listened to Max, offering a nod. "I'm happy to hear that you have an older sister to look out for you, honestly," One of Cate's biggest concerns so far was that Max may have been trying to do everything on her own, and that was no way for a teenager to have to grow up. She relaxed her shoulders as she listened still, and nodded again, "Whatever you would like to do, I'm only happy to assist with. Whether it's contacting your parents for you so that you don't have to speak to them if you don't want to, or if it's gathering all the information that you need to file for emancipation." Caitlin smiled kindly toward the teenager, "My primary concern is for your wellbeing, which... I know is probably a difficult concept considering what I've read from your school records and what you've told me of how your parents view you." No child should be made to feel like their own parents would sell them to a body part collector of all things. "I had, and still have, no intention of reprimanding you for the forgery either," Cate said gently, "So long as we can organise for either a designated guardian who does care enough to be involved in your life and wellbeing, or alternatively emancipation and setting you up to be able to support yourself independently, then no one has to know. You can finish your school year without any issue." The woman watched, could pick up on the cues that the girl had been feeling uneasy, and so had hoped to lessen that somewhat, "And you aren't obligated to tell me everything either, Maxine. I only ask because I see a bright, vibrant young woman who I would like to see do well for herself, despite having been made to feel the way your parents have done to you. You deserve better, and if there's a way I can help with that, then my door's always open." She knew what it was like, to rely on oneself, to feel like only maybe one or two people even cared that you were alive, she'd wrapped herself in her own cocoon as a teenager as well, and still did somewhat. "I'm sorry if I've made you uncomfortable in any way, too. I guess you just remind me a little of myself at your age," A genuine apology was offered to the girl, with a soft half chuckle, before her gaze fell on the girl's hands and something that glinted from one of her fingers. Tilting her head curiously, she realised that she could feel magic coming off of it, and not just any kind. It was Fae. How curious, "That's pretty," She smiled gently as she pointed it out and then looked back to Max, "A gift?"
  4. Path of the Ancients: The First Step

    Caitlin Sullivan
    It had taken a little time to settle back into life after her return, even if it hadn't felt like any time had passed for her. Time had certainly changed a few things here, some of which she was still trying to catch up on. But now that she was back at work and Aisling was going to Tally after some tutoring from her mother on a few basics that she needed to know, Caitlin had finally been able to sit down and work out the process by which she would need to tackle some of the larger objectives that she'd already had before she went missing. Among those was being able to sit and talk to Dylan about all that had happened, which she had decided she would do today while she waited for Alex to come for the healing he required. As it stood, there were seemingly some wizards who already had a vendetta against the Sorceraic families - though perhaps more specifically Adele and her brood - but there were also others out there. Cate and Cassandra still had those who wanted them hunted down, and they didn't even know the extent of the women's genealogy either. And it would help Dylan to better protect them if he did know, the last thing anyone wanted was mistakes that could make things worse due to lack of communication. Having filled a teapot and got a few cups and some freshly baked cookies on a platter, the woman set it on the coffee table in her living room to pour herself a cup while she waited. The front door was open, which would be easily seen through the screen door, as was the door to the backyard, so that the cool spring breeze could flow through the house. Cate took a sip of her drink before setting her cup down and relaxing on the sofa. Perhaps she should have been concerned about telling Dylan too much, but her concern wasn't so much about him knowing, because she didn't believe he would ever harm her. But more that she didn't want to be a larger burden than she may already be. Especially with he having a brother here now that he was looking out for. Yet another thing that Caitlin had missed with her disappearance. She sighed softly, waiting for the knock at the door that would inevitably come, before calling out easily. "Door's open! I'm in the living room!"

    "A spell that can make a person there, but not there..." Caitlin's brows rose as she considered the teenager and why she would need that kind of spell or charm, though currently it seemed like it was more about trying to sneak around, which could potentially get her into a lot of trouble with the school. The woman inhaled deeply, before breathing out slow as she thought about this. "Why did you want to test something like that specifically? It's not a standard spell that's taught at this age. And definitely raises a lot of questions," She watched Max a moment, and the girl's reaction to her knowledge of the signature being falsified. The news of her being kicked out, however, instantly caused the woman's back to straighten as she opened her notebook and began writing something down. "But you are not eighteen yet, and if they have already basically kicked you out... including removing all your belongings from their house and abandoning responsibility over you, then they are breaking the law, Maxine. They can receive a fine, and jail time for that," Cate explained as she wrote, "Until you are eighteen, they either have to maintain responsibility over you, or sign the care of you over to a responsible adult." The woman finished taking the notes, which involved potentially calling Child Protective Services, and looked up at the girl. "And it's not about what I would find in your room if I checked there, it's about seeing what happened in there for myself," The woman explained in a way, "That's why I'm asking you to be honest with me, because it will be much better on you to do so. You're nearing the end of school, the last thing I want is for you to be suspended, but you need to work with me so that we can avoid it. That explosion could have harmed more people than just yourself, it was reckless to do in the dormitories, where there are other students around." Still, even as she explained, Caitlin's voice was gentle, the woman genuinely trying to figure out how she could help Maxine and why the girl was not only performing experimental charms that apparently made one disappear, but also learn more of her home life, which was sounding worse by the minute. "It's not about whether you're going to do anything bad by going out, it's the fact that while you're here you are legally our responsibility to keep safe, as well as your parents' unless they have assigned you another guardian, and I've found nothing in your files stating anything as such. And with what you've told me, I think I'm going to have to call Child Protective Services, which is going to get your parents in a lot of legal trouble. It also means you'll need an adult watching over you in the meantime so that they don't try anything," Caitlin nodded gently, already her mind was going over the details of what was going to have to be done, before she placed pen to paper again, "So where are you storing the things that won't fit in your dormitory? There's only a limited space in them, and I'm sure you have more than what can be kept on the school grounds?"

    Making sure that they actually were alone before taking her seat to speak with Max, Caitlin then studied the girl as they spoke, watching her carefully for anything that might indicate problems or issues. She couldn't really search for anything physical, since the teen was beat up from the explosion, but any kinds of tells that would give her the idea of underlying anxiety or attempts to falsify anything. Interestingly - and amusingly - enough, she was very casual about being vague with her answer to Cate's question, which made the older woman almost smirk slightly. She'd continued on, however, as though to force the subject to a close, and Cate's brows rose. "Well, that's what I gathered from what I heard about it, but I was actually wondering exactly what kind of spell, since there are not really many that should have the kind of reaction that prevents someone from even having the injuries healed," Caitlin's head tilted as she regarded Maxine, and it was rather clear that the woman was no dope. She had already figured that it was likely a spell that was far too advanced to be practising on school grounds or without proper supervision, or that it was one that was not allowed. She then slipped her fingers into her notebook and pulled out the document that was forged. "I'm going to need your trust and honesty regarding this matter, especially since I also know that you forged your parents' signature here," Caitlin tapped the piece of paper, though there was still no anger or impatience. She was calm and gentle, as though having a feeling that there was likely something deeper going on than simply a student who was acting out or doing what they shouldn't. "I haven't contacted them yet, but the forgery is actually quite serious, especially because of the permissions it grants. I know you've had trouble in a number of other schools, so I want to try and help you out so that you don't have to go through the same thing here," She smiled understandingly toward the teenager. "I really do need some explanations in order to assist you though, and I would rather hear them from you than have to see your room and find out for myself what you were doing, or have to call your family to find out why you feel like you need to have these permissions or why they might not grant them," Caitlin spoke gently, careful because she didn't want to scare Maxine, but to just let her understand that she was trying to keep her from ending up in more trouble than she needed, especially at this time of the year. If she missed her exams or was suspended now, it was going to affect her graduation.

    Upon hearing about the incident in the Spencer girl's dormitory, it was of course Caitlin's duty to look up her records... and goodness weren't they some records. It seemed like young Max had a number of issues through her schooling, namely not staying in schools for an overly long time before she had to move on to another due to being suspended or expelled. This was already not good. Though, what had also caught her attention was when her fingertips brushed over a permission slip supposedly from her parent, saying that she was allowed out after curfew, only to discover that Maxine had forged their signature. Normally this was a grounds to contact her parents to discuss the girl's behaviour, however there was something else she picked up from the echo, and once she had read enough, the woman made her way toward the Hospital Wing. It was upon arriving there that she learned very quickly from the staff that the girl had been making something of a nuisance of herself as well, though in honesty, Caitlin could sympathise. She had never enjoyed being cooped up, especially in a medical ward. And it looked like Max knew that she was thereto see her as well, which should have been expected to happen anyway. A student injuring themselves tended to require the attention of a counselor in order to make sure they're feeling alright. Even more so with Cate's further questions she had in mind. "Could we have some privacy for a bit?" Cate asked the nurses gently. After all, it was more likely that Max might actually talk to her if she knew they weren't being listened in on. Besides, this was basically a counselling session, which meant she was entitled to her privacy. Caitling waited until the nurses had given them space, before moving toward the bed with a warm and gentle smile for the girl, "Hello Maxine, I'm Caitlin, the school's counselor. I'm not sure we've met properly before," She said easily as she brought a chair over beside the girl's bed. "I'm just here to talk and see how you're doing. That looks like it was some nasty accident that you were caught up by. What exactly were you doing for that kind of explosion?" She queried, crossing one knee over the other and setting her notebook on top of her lap without opening it yet.
  8. From the Abyss...

    "In case you've forgotten, I work best when I've got a lot on my plate," Caitlin offered a gentle soft chuckle at her herself and her tendency to be a major workaholic, however she shook her head to the question of whether it was a place that played with memories. She didn't know, it wasn't really a question she could answer confidently, and yet she had a feeling that was probably a decent enough guess. "i wouldn't say it if I wasn't certain," The woman sighed and tutted gently at Dylan, wondering if he forgot that she didn't really say or do something unless she meant it or there was a reason. She knew to everyone else it had been a long time, but it hadn't for her. She at least wanted him to trust that nothing had changed on her side between them. Of course, that was a discussion for when they could get some time alone, just the two of them. With any lucky, he might decide to stay the night and they could talk later. But then again, he had his young brother to worry about now as well. Speaking of... "Bitey, aren't we?" Cassandra raised a brow at Senan, but shrugged off his demeanour, waving it off as not her concern for the time being. If the Faerie boy wanted to act like someone had taken a dump in his Cheerios, then that was his prerogative. She had to sigh at Alex as her nose scrunched up a little though and she pouted at him, "Well, I didn't mean right at this moment. I know that things need to calm down a little now she's back and all. Just, you know..." She huffed a quiet breath, resting her head on Alex's shoulder as he squeezed it. Was it wrong for her to want to make sure it didn't get put off for another half a year? Still, it was a conversation she preferred to the one that people were having about her carrying some 'mark' and calling her an Heir and the girls Royals. That was a whole other can of worms she didn't think she wanted to deal with. Anything spoken to Stardust seemed to have maybe followed her out the door, or fallen upon the ears of the distracted as the woman wandered out, Caitlin watching her, and then Senan as the boy apparently decided he was going to follow the Elder Fae. She was at least glad that Dylan agreed on pizza however, and nodded gently as she offered an appreciative smile toward him, before glancing over at the young girl who had come back with her, Aisling sipping her tea quietly and observing. "Well, I missed their birth, I'd say that's an important thing..." Caitlin says softly as she looks at the pair, hand reaching out to stroke gently at the cheek of one, and then the other while they peered back up at her, "Uncommonly aware too, though I should expect that I guess." She murmured. She then looked around at the people still standing, and offered a soft laugh, "Please, sit down and relax or something, or I'm going to feel like you all feel trapped here." She said, before reaching for a menu on the table for a local pizza place. "Oh! Sorry," Cassandra jumped, as though she had been spacing out for a moment until Cate called them out on standing around. She then glanced at Alex, "We're good for pizza, yea-...oh! You have a gig, don't you?" She then remembered, especially with the reminder of his guitar that was slung over his back. Was he late? Had he missed it? Was there still time? "You don't need to stick around if you want to go to the performance, babe." She offered an apologetic look toward her husband as she gave him a small squeeze with her arm and leaned up to press a kiss to his cheek, appreciative that he came here anyway, even though he had already had something on.
  9. From the Abyss...

    "If you need any help, Dylan..." Caitlin began gently, glancing between he and his brother, before then offering him a soft smile as she lifted a shoulder in a small shrug, "I mean, I am an investigator, and do have gifts that are quite handy in tracing back events and individuals." She knew that he would never ask her for help, so she had to at least offer it, though she felt he might try to dissuade her. Likely try to point out that she has enough on her plate already, but he knew her better, that she was stubborn and would find a way to take care of all the things that she needed to as well as help him with anything that he or his brother could use assistance with. "I... honestly can't recall exactly what happened after going out to the garden. I was there on my own, and then I opened my eyes and I was back there with Aisling," Cate rubbed her head a little, it ate at her that she couldn't recall the in-between. Even Aisling, as quiet as she was, while she had answers to some things it seemed she was struggling a little herself, still getting her bearings in this new world she'd never set foot in. "And I want to tell you because I want to," The woman huffed at Dylan. Really, he didn't have to go telling her that she didn't need to tell him things. Not when she'd already implied that she intended to anyway. Releasing a soft breath as she sat down, she realised that agitation was beginning to set in due to the missing pieces. She was a puzzle solver, someone who found pieces, it would drive her up the wall if she kept trying to think on it. "Yes, I have learned," Aisling said gently in response to Senan, offering a small smile to him, "You are kind." She added softly, before also moving to a seat and picking up the tea that suddenly appeared on the table next to her, taking a sip and smiling at the flavour. "Well, I know that you're more Fae than human, for one," Cassandra said candidly to Senan, though there was a hint of concern in her gaze as she studied him a few moments with her own tri-coloured gaze. Unaware of it, her own aura since her arrival was much stronger than it had been months ago, something that Caitlin had noticed already, but had chosen to remain silent on. There was something very similar between Cass' and Stardust's, and she wasn't even sure where to begin with the claim that the clearly ancient faerie had made on them. "And you need to get yourself looked at by Cate sooner or later, babe," Cass murmured to Alex, "I'd feel much more at ease if it was sooner. Especially now that we have the girls." It was understandable, right? Wanting to make sure he would be around for a long time to come. "Oh, absolutely, there's likely a very good reason why Cassandra, who has lived outside of Faerie, carries a mark, while young Aisling doesn't," Stardust agreed with Senan's words with a light nod as she piped in once again, "But I assure you, it's not age that afflicts my mind. I woke up one day, oh... some decades ago? Maybe less? Maybe more..." The short raven-haired fae peered upward in thought, before then shaking her head and casting her gaze straight onto the young lad, and the weight of that gaze could be felt, "And no memory. I surmised quite a long time ago that I likely did it to myself, for what reason I cannot rightly say. Perhaps it is similar to the affliction which leaves gaps in the memories of Caitlin and Aisling." Though she sounded so casual with the lilt in her voice, at the same time there was a heaviness in the air at her very words, as though some of that ancient power stored within the small body was confirming her words. Senan's theory of being one of the 'Firsts' simply drew a slow smile from her as she studied her tea, however, before taking another sip. "Guarding against something coming out," Stardust confirmed Dylan's suggestion with the simple words and nod, "A door unlocked is a dangerous thing to have. There are creatures of Faerie that should not be loose on this world. Not the least of all, many of the Fae kin themselves. When the Old Courts split, there became many smaller ones. Some more monstrous than others..." She then tilted her head to the side, "Hm..." "You don't have to go," Caitlin said softly as she looked up toward Dylan, and then Senan, "I'm rather starving, and we could all have something to eat?" She offered, glancing around, though she watched as Stardust's gaze shifted toward the garden, before the Elder fae stepped out the sliding door to the patio which led out to it. Cate breathed out a sigh, there were still questions, but the Fae was likely to answer them or offer information upon her own whim, so she knew not to press her too much. Caitlin also wanted to see the babies properly, and so the reached over for the stroller to roll it toward her, smiling softly at the girls with their odd coloured eyes and hair, glancing around briefly once more, "Anyone want pizza?"
  10. From the Abyss...

    "I can only imagine," Caitlin murmured in response to the information Dylan shared, even though vague she had some understanding of what he meant. Two sides had been playing games of plot and deception, and this poor boy was the result of it, stuck in the middle. For that, the woman felt for Senan, despite his thorny demeanour. At Dylan's comment of how she felt, however, Cate blinked at him before then shaking her head gently, "There was a lot that happened, that I was still trying to get my own head around before exposing you to the confusion of it all. And then... well, for me it hasn't been seven months, I'm still wearing the same clothes I was when I vanished." She glanced over herself, but offered a look toward Dylan that said she would explain everything to him when they had the chance to be alone. With so many people around, it was too much for her to start talking about all that happened months ago for them. "I cannot argue that," Aisling smiled gently at Senan and his biting remark about curiosity. His attitude seemed to be going right over top of the girl's head, though Cassandra certainly noticed it and a brow rose at the boy as she studied him. "So who took a shite in your cereal?" Cass asked him, before huffing a quiet chuckle and offering a shake of her head, "Let me guess, Sturt." At least, if he was attending school, she imagined that's exactly where he was with all the other brooding, angsty, angry-at-their-parents kids, who needed to bite every hand that was offered. She sighed softly and relaxed into her lean against Alex, "Hey, now Cate's back, she can finish her work on you, you know." The redhead reminded her husband with a raised brow. She was rather aware that while he was learning how to use his magic well, he didn't always think about how much he used, and she wanted to have him around for a long time. "Of course I can, and will... there's a lot I have to do," Cate said almost distractedly as she thought, "I still need to get your father as well... and then he and I can begin working on how to bring Thia back," That was a goal she had set in her mind still, offering Alex a small reassuring smile that she intended to do everything she could to get the woman back to them. Of course, this was all still over the heads of half the room and she shot everyone else an apologetic look. "She has the mark as well," Aisling pointed out, indicating toward Stardust who was still casually sipping her tea before attention was brought her way and her brows rose. In fact, now that Aisling was studying her, there was a slight look of concern that came across the girl's features in the presence of the ancient Faerie. She shifted her gaze away as she appeared to try and work something out in her head. Still, both Senan's and Dylan's words reached her ears and she looked up toward the older man, "Incorrect." She said softly, "The mark can skip generations. It does not show for every Childe who is born of the line. It is like... they get Chosen. You should know this," She says the latter to Senan. "The young one is absolutely correct," Stardust piped up lightly from the background, "I surmise that's perhaps how the Sullivan lasses came to move themselves to this area in the first place. As I said months ago, Dylan. They are mine. I just..." She offers a gentle shrug, "Don't have my memory, though piece by piece is gradually returning." She mused, as though simply discussing the weather. "I'm... a little lost, so... the wand shop owner appears to be a ruler who has no memory, and Cass can potentially create her own piece of Faerie..." Caitlin rubbed her forehead as she moved to a chair in order to sit down. She felt exhausted, and offered a sigh before picking up the cup of tea that suddenly appeared beside her in order to take a sip. "Alright... I guess we just handle one thing at a time then. There's nothing right now that's going to mean the end of the world, right?" "Probably not the end of the world, but Cassandra and I might have to work on keeping that door guarded," Stardust mused, her gaze far off in thought once again.
  11. From the Abyss...

    The comfort that Dylan was able to offer at least set Caitlin a little at ease, especially with her mind still catching up with things and the fact that she now had a daughter that she felt she was going to need to explain as best she could with the little knowledge she had on that matter. So far as she knew, it was possibly a similar scenario to her own mother, which was another part of the puzzle that she had to share with him. There was so much she needed to say, and no doubt there was on his side as well, but it would have to wait until a little later. She knew her return would be felt, and that there would be a number of people here, a couple more than she had expected to be honest. "I can see..." Cate responded to Dylan's explanation of his younger brother with mild intrigue. That his father - who hunted the kinds of beings that she and hers were - would go to bed with one, and then produce a child as well. She had to wonder if there weren't some kinds of shenanigans going on either one side or the other. Perhaps both. Her cheeks did flush a fraction at Aisling's candid questioning, especially with Cass right there too, but she smiled and also nodded in confirmation, deciding that her niece would have to find out eventually anyway. "Yes, he and I are seeing one another... or were... he might have grown cold feet in the past seven months," She offered a gentle joke, but there was at least a hint of concern about whether there was truth in her words as well. "I am truly sorry for whatever your family has done to you... but if you were without answers to an entire side of your lineage, I'm sure you would be at least mildly curious," Aisling responded softly to Senan's biting words. She could understand wishing to be away from something that one didn't enjoy or felt was toxic, but when one didn't have that knowledge at all. How were they supposed to know? As far as she could tell so far though, her mother, cousin, all those who had turned up appeared kind. Even Senan, despite his bitterness. "Proud Papa here can't get enough of them whenever he's home," Cass snickered at Alex's mighty proud proclamation about the twins, not that she disagreed by any degree whatsoever. She'd fallen in love with them long before they were born. The hug her husband received from Cate also caused her to grin widely while he wasn't sure what to do, though she swatted at his shoulder with his joke, "Definitely not a good joke for you still." Cassandra huffed, moving over beside him once he was released from her aunt's hold, in order to lean against Alex slightly, wrapping an arm around his waist while she came to grips with all the suddenness of Caitlin's return, the new family member, her aunt finally admitting she was in a relationship - or... yeah, Cass supposed Cate and Dylan had some talking to do there. And then something about royals? "That was you, Cass? I knew you were testing your abilities out there since over a year ago, but didn't realise your abilities had increased so much," Caitlin blinked at her niece, while she tried to put together the pieces of what Dylan had noted, and what Stardust had said, as well as Aisling. Still, the younger teenager stood and looked around, seemingly understanding that only a couple of people kind of understood what she meant. "She created the new doorway, it means she is the Heir," Aisling said softly, pointing a finger in Cassandra's direction, causing the young mother to stare at her and then around at the others, including her own husband. "I mean... I just, you know... did my thing..." "There are plants out there that only exist inside Faerie," Came Stardust's voice, though much more contemplative than usual as she sipped her tea. There were drinks already made and waiting for everyone else, to their preference without her having even asked. "It's like creating a piece of the Lands here, indeed young Aisling has the right of it. Only an Heir or Ruler has the ability to be able to create such things. That you did it without even the knowledge as well..." She trailed off with a thoughtful hum.
  12. From the Abyss...

    "I'm sorry..." Caitlin was enough in tune with Dylan to know that he had been worried, just by the tender hold and kiss to the cheek which as chaste as it was still even hinted that there was more behind it that would have to wait for a later time, when they could talk in private. She pressed her face to his shoulder for a moment as she gave him another small squeeze before releasing him reluctantly, and nodded in greeting to the small Fae woman who entered, her introduction allowing Cate to determine that this was Dylan's employer. "Everything takes as long as it is meant to," Stardust responded to Dylan's comment with a light wink and amused smile, but quickly busied herself with making drinks for everyone, including the others who were on their way as well. The revelations came as something seemingly expected by her, or she simply didn't want to intrude on discussions while she toddled around, though clearly Cate was surprised by Senan's introduction. "Half brother?" The older redhead queried with a glance toward Dylan, before then offering a kind smile toward Senan, "Well, it is a pleasure to meet you." She said softly, and then indicated toward the others for Aisling, "Well, Senan just introduced himself. The dark haired lass is Stardust, and Senan's brother is Dylan, someone very close to me." Caitlin wasn't sure if that was something she made a point to state because she felt like she should or because she just wanted to, but either way she smiled as she did, before then being almost bowled over by the very not pregnant Cassandra who was as full of energy and vigor as ever, despite the two newborns she was toting around with her. "Are you her lover?" Aisling asked Dylan rather candidly, while Cass continued to squeeze half the life out of her mother. It was merely curiosity, it seemed, though she glanced at Senan who had commented on her apparent 'tampering'. "Would you not wish to find where you came from?" She asked him gently. Her attention shifted quickly, however, at the appearance of another male, one who held a more familiar and similar signature to herself, as well as her mother and cousins. "Seven months..." Cate was almost in shock at the idea of having missed so much time, and pressed a kiss to Cassandra's forehead as the girl finally released her, only to drag her over to see the twins, "Gods, they're gorgeous." The woman gasped. The mixture of colours in the eyes and hair were definitely not human, and yet it was astounding how beautiful the babies were as she bent over the stroller to look them over, before then grabbing Alex's arm before he could try to escape, so that she could pull him in for a hug as well, "Thank you for taking care of them." She murmured to the young man, "I'm happy to see you're doing well too." She knew it must have been stressful at their age, but it seemed they'd got through it all in one piece. "So... you're related... but how?" Cassandra was finally studying the younger redhead who looked a great deal like herself and Cate. And though she'd already made her own guess, she needed a confirmation. She didn't expect the girl to stare at her for a few moments before then kneeling, however. "I... that's new..." "She's your cousin, Aisling, this is Cassandra and Alexander. You can stand up, are you alright?" Cate offered a concerned frown as she offered Aisling a hand in order to try and coax the girl back to her feet. "That must mean you're the one who's really behind the garden, and the doorway," A voice mused from where Stardust was making drinks, before looking at Cass with raised brows.
  13. From the Abyss...

    Though there was clear relief that could be seen in Cate's features at the sight of Dylan, there was also curiosity over his young companion and the sensation she could feel in the air around him. Fae? The slight similarities between the two males weren't missed by the astute woman either as she watched the younger one enter, before hugging the older tightly. Closing her eyes, she allowed herself to indulge for a few moments before being ushered inside with a small sigh. At the same time, she also realised that she was going to have her own things to explain, especially when she spied the red hair of the teenager who was poking her head out from the kitchen to peer curiously at the new arrivals Before the front door could close, however, the return of the strong aura caused Caitlin some pause as she looked behind her toward the cheerful looking raven-haird Faerie, who held up a carton of milk for her to see. "You might want some fresh milk for drinks," Stardust pointed out lightly with a bright smile, "I'm Stardust-..." Her introduction was interrupted as Caitlin spoke up. "The wand shop owner, of course," Perhaps it was simply the fact that Cate felt far more in tune with everything, or sensitive to the world around her, that she was able to truly notice that the small woman was far more than just a simple run of the mill Fae. She gestured for Stardust to join them, her gaze lifting to meet Dylan's curiously once again, before then leading them through to the kitchen where the teenager who was near a spitting image of a younger Caitlin was waiting, quickly shifting her own gaze between the new arrivals. Cate walked over to her and brushed a lock of hair from her features before shifting an arm around her. "This is Aisling," Caitlin said softly as she glanced around, her gaze stopping on Dylan mostly, "She's my daughter... though, we were separated for a long time, since she was a baby I think." Her brow furrowed slightly, clearly struggling with exact knowledge. "I'm really sorry, I hope I didn't cause too much trouble, I-I didn't realise it would pull her in..." The girl spoke softly in apology as she glanced around at the group of people, before her gaze shifted toward the front of the house, along with Cate's attention as well, moments before the door opened and closed and there was a rush of footsteps and... wheels? "OhmygodsCate! You're back!" Cassandra barged into the kitchen, ploughing the way through with the stroller before stopping it a moment so that she could throw herself at Caitlin in a tight hug. Though, it wasn't so much the hug that caught the older woman off guard, as the sight of the stroller itself, as well as the occupants that could only have been a few weeks old at most. Sudden realisation dawned upon the older woman as she began to feel the weight of the time that she must have been gone for, and her eyes shone with unshed tears a moment while she held Cass as well. "H-how long has it been?" Caitlin's voice choked out as she then looked toward Dylan for the answer. Aisling, meanwhile, found her curiosity peaked by the twin girls who were no ordinary Fae babies, by far. She knew who Cassandra was, she wasn't certain how she knew, but she did, and her features shifted into a soft smile toward the babies. "Little royals..." Aisling said softly as she brushed ones cheek with her finger, almost as though in awe. While this had all gone on, Stardust had already begun helping herself to boiling water in order to make tea for everyone, since it seemed there was a load of distractions for everyone else.
  14. From the Abyss...

    Caitlin Sullivan
    7 months earlier... Upon arrival at the home, Stardust had paused and her expression had turned to concern even before entering. She had told Cassandra and Dylan that she felt a shift in the land around it. Something had happened, an opening had been created. It was through her they were able to witness an echo of events as Caitlin seemed to pour through books and drawers like a madwoman, searching for something. What it was they couldn't say, and they followed her frantic searching as she then ran outside into the back yard and than... simply vanished. "She opened a door... no... someone else did..." Had come the soft voice of the Fae woman, before she furrowed her brow. "We cannot follow." Immediately, an argument sparked from Cassandra, but Stardust simply looked at her and then pointed to her barely showing belly at the time. "You cannot risk losing them to Faerie, and I... I cannot remember how to return," This seemed to trouble the small Fae, who then offered her apologies and words that she would let Dylan know as soon as she felt another shift. If Caitlin returned. Today... At the shop, the Fae woman was in the midst of inspecting some new wands that had been crafted, when she paused, her head lifting and gaze staring into the middle distance. She dropped the wand in her hands and ran to the front desk, almost jumping on top of it in order to gain Dylan's attention as she stared at him. There was a mixture of concern, excitement, happiness, and yet fear in her eyes. "The door opened again..." Came the whisper from the dark-haired Fae, "She's returned." Elsewhere, Cassandra felt the shift as well as the familiar tug of her aunt's blood while she was feeding one of the twins and her breath halted for a moment as she looked up. Her chest tightened and relief flooded through her for a few moments. The babe she was feeding stopped, and both turned their strange-coloured gaze to her as though acknowledging that they had felt it too. A soft half-sob bubbled from her lips as she rested back in her seat. She needed to go see her though, and so she summoned the stroller from the hallway and began to settle the two girls in it while reaching out toward Alex with her mind, 'Did you feel it?' At the same time, Cass felt concern... because she didn't just feel the single thread that connected her to Caitlin, but another connecting one as well. In the backyard of the house which had only been maintained by family but otherwise untouched, The red-haired woman blinked, disoriented for a moment as she looked around the back of her home, before then toward the teenager who stood next to her, holding her hand as she fearfully studied the place. The last thing she remembered was that she had been searching for something, and then... then she opened her eyes and found herself here with Aisling. She knew her daughter, naturally, though she couldn't place any memories of her having been living here with herself or Cass. Bringing the girl in close, Caitlin held her while she tried to work out what was missing in her mind, though subconsciously she was aware that it was futile, at least at the moment. She was still dressed exactly the same as when she left, appeared no different, and yet, she knew she had gone somewhere. She didn't like that her garden had overgrown quite a bit, what had happened? "Let's go inside," Caitlin said softly, and then began to lead Aisling in, so that she could at least get them some tea or something, while she tried to straighten her mind which was clearly missing fragments of memory.
  15. Invite An Acceptable Purging

    Caitlin was still somewhat in shock after the whole thing, even though she'd found her feet and thought that she had something of a grip on the situation. There was still a kind of 'buzzing' in the back of her head that was growing steadily more noticeable as time went on. She did see the cake box, however, though not the cake within. Adele's reaction did not give her a lot of confidence in what would be found inside though, and she wondered if she was going to be paying more for coming to their aid, than what she'd bargained for when Cassandra had called upon her. She watched the family though, studying them, the psychologist in her picking up on any small nuances and tells. Immediately, it was easy to see the jealousy of the brown-haired girl who she had already been told about, the daughter of the headmaster of Tally, aimed toward the love and attention that Caleb received from Adele. As well as the apparent close connection she held with another new student at the school but someone she had also been informed about. It was odd how the pair seemed to both fit in and be out of place a little at the same time, and she had to wonder for a moment, at least until she noticed their eyes. Lorelei was aware of the study, but she paid it no attention at the moment. When Lauren's hand squeezed her own, holding tightly, she returned the gesture and then tugged her closer in order to try and get her caught up in Jezebel's hugging too, which would happen if she came within arm's reach of Lorelei's mother. It was just a given, especially with how the events of the day had gone. "Family, hm..." Cate's voice murmured quietly, before a small huff of air was expelled. It was a strange-feeling word to consider when most of her memories of family revolved around the people who she swore were killed. But then, were those people even her family? Had they ever even existed? Or were they something that had been manufactured as a way of coping with memory loss of whatever her true former life had been? Too many questions. But she followed others to the kitchen all the same, before offering Rheldor a small smile and polite nod, "Hello, it's a pleasure to meet you. I'm Caitlin, Cassandra's aunt." She introduced herself quietly, before glancing over where Cass and Alex had entered, a concerned frown on her lips as she looked at the girl. Cass herself seemed to have decided not to debate too much more over what had happened and where the blame should lie. In the end, she supposed it was Anna's to carry, the woman having intended all along to sacrifice herself if anything went awry. It reminded her of her parents all too much, and their willingness to hide her and take what was coming, rather than risking all of them running and being caught. It left a slight sour taste in her mouth, despite knowing that in the situation with her being the parent she would do the same. Alex would do the same. It was just part of caring for someone who was younger, giving them the chance at life. The mention of her caused her to blink though, the redhead lifting her head a little to glance around before shrugging and moving to the seat, to sit down heavily. "I'm actually not feeling too great, but I guess my husband's going to force me to eat," Cassandra said quietly, a hand on her abdomen. She wasn't lying either, really. After having to watch Alex go through torturous pain, Caleb almost dying... the shock of discovery of her relation to Bethianna, only to watch her fade the same way her own mother had before her eyes. There was a deep nausea in Cass' belly, and a near haunted look in her features now that things appeared to be settling. This was why she hadn't wanted to stop to think, and she wondered if she could get away with excusing herself to lie down.

Personal
Personality

Cate would be considered a no-nonsense woman, which may sound strange when someone is told about her personal gifts and the fact that she is an expert in Divination - a talent that only a few wizards truly appreciate. She has over the years managed to prove herself however, due to her natural stubbornness and unwillingness to believe in dead ends.

That aside, the woman is quite caring, especially of her niece, and if someone manages to get past her emotional barrier that she tends to maintain for the sake of herself and Cassandra, then they will find her to be a rather loving and protective woman. She has felt too many losses in her life to be able to trust or let people in easily, so there are few who she can actually call real friends.

Responsibility drives Caitlin, as well as a desire to see others achieve happiness and/or justice. And though she is haunted a great deal by some of the things she has had to bare witness to in the past, she refuses to allow anyone else to hold those burdens if she can help it.

As far as teaching goes, she is perhaps a little more relaxed than one might think upon first glance. But she finds the idea of being able to help provide encouragement and assistance to the youth to be refreshing in comparison to her life back in the UK, and looks forward to her rose as Divination Professor and Student Counselor.

Appearance

If the fair complexion, bright red hair and very blue eyes didn't give it away, then her accent would certainly let someone know that she's an Irish lass through and through. She carries herself with confidence, and always dresses well. Her hair is kept neat and falls in just the right amount of wave and curl to rest over her shoulders and the top of her back.

There seems to be a near constant aura of calm openness around the woman, and she appears to know without being told the boundaries that individuals have. She does not really appear as one might expect a Diviner or DADA expert to look, her blouses and knee length pencil skirts appearing stylish (and usually are designer wear), as well as the pumps that add a couple of inches to her usual 5'3 height.

Relationships
Friends

Friends come difficult to the woman who, while is happy to help others, is very conservative and private about her own life. She is friendly enough, but it takes a while for her to really warm up to others in a friendship sense.

Family

The few family she has are more important to Cate than anything and she will do whatever she has to in order to protect them and keep them happy. Seh is a fierce protector of her dear ones.

Lovers

Due to her private nature, dating wasn't something she did much of, however she has fallen into a strange kind of relationship with the man who has basically stalked and protected her for years.

Haters

Cate has no time for those who find themselves on her bad side, and will generally ignore them. Though threats to those she cares about would be met with trouble.

The story so far
History

(Note, the beginning in Italics was all fabricated memories of Caitlin's)

Early childhood was a fairly normal wizarding one for the young girl born to a pair of magical folk in Ireland, and growing up around her family who were all wizards or witches. She had an older brother, who was well into his teen years by the time she was born, so was rather spoiled by bother her parents as well as him. She was a lighthearted and loving girl, at least until she neared the age of ten. And that's when the voices started.

They began as whispers, something she could barely hear, but gradually the voices became louder, impossible to block out. It left the girl awake at nights, and unable to concentrate on anything during the day, pulling her into hysterics because of it. Telepathy. It manifested at such a young age that she didn't quite understand what was going on until her parents realised it and explained that it came from her mother's side and the rumoured ancestry that involved a witch being impregnated by a male fairy.

After that, charms were used in order to give her mind some peace, and soon after she turned eleven she received her letter to Hogwarts. Excited, she ended up being sorted into Hufflepuff and enjoyed learning more about magic. By the time she was thirteen, the girl at least had enough control of her telepathy to be able to pick and choose when she would hear thoughts, however she had to be careful with timing, because she was still learning how to control it between individuals, rather than opening up to a torrent of thoughts from all around her.


At fifteen, tragedy struck home, however. Christmas break had begun and she was going home to spend it with the family, but was never prepared for what she saw. Upon arriving at the coven house, she witnessed a horrific scene. And, as a dizzy spell washed over her, she gripped the wall, only to become drowned suddenly in images and sensations of what had gone on. Pain, terror, malevolence, she could almost piece together the entire ordeal.

The girl fell to her knees with her hands to her head, trying to block it out as she shrieked until she was found by someone. The next few days, people could barely get a word out of her. It was when her brother - who had moved to England a couple of years prior - arrived, that she finally was able to collapse into his arms and tell him everything. It appeared that another talent had manifested as psychometry.

With their parents gone, the young man gained custody of his teenage sister, and she was taken back to the States with him, where she had to adjust to a new life. It was a little overwhelming, especially since she had a new gift to try to control, but at least she still had Hogwarts as a constant, and was actually relieved to return there eventually. She started taking to wearing gloves much of the time, finding that without the skin contact with objects, she didn't have so many issues. The attack on the coven still sat in the back of her mind, however. Luckily, one of the teachers was able to help her learn to adjust a little, and control her gifts, though cautioned her against letting too many people know about them.

What also helped her adjust to everything that overwhelmed her was a couple of years later when she became an aunt to a beautiful baby girl. She doted on girl, named Cassandra, whose mother was thought to be a metamorhphmagus it turned out. Having the red-haired girl to smile at her and cheer her up when she visited made the adjustment easier on the teen.

So it was that Cate threw herself into study, now with a better grasp on her gifts, focusing a lot on Divination, Charms, Care of Magical Creatures, and Defence Against the Dark Arts. Considering she'd spent time trying to learn how to not be stuck in others' heads when younger, and what had happened to her family, it seemed to make sense to her to learn a great deal about those things.

The rest of her school life passed relatively well. She made friends, dated a couple of boys, and ended up with high marks in a lot of subjects. As soon as she graduated, she then went on to University, where she continued study, moving also into psychology and the workings of the mind. She also studied Magical Creatures and the types that were known, wanting to be able to help others on another of levels, wizards and other species.

Cate had barely graduated with her degree, however, when tragedy hit hard a second time. This time it was her brother and his wife who were the victims, and she had to rush back to their home in order to console a very young, confused and broken-hearted Cassandra. The crime scene was familiar, but after months of investigation by both Muggle police, and Aurors, they'd ended up with no trail, a dead end.

The now-guardian of her niece found that something snapped then. She returned to University once she had settled into a new place with Cass, making sure that the girl was alright in her new school and making friends. Cate finished studying Law and Criminal Psychology on top of her previous degree, gaining a PhD. Once she gained her doctorate, she began her own investigation into her brother's death, not believing that it could really have been a complete dead end.

Through her gifts, as well as a snooping around and investigation on her side, the woman eventually was able to discover who it was that had not only killed her brother, but had also massacred her family in Ireland years ago, as well as a couple of other related lines, as though picking them off. She took her evidence to the right people, and a hunt was made on a wizard who was a death eater that seemed to belong to a group.

In order to work through what she'd discovered and been able to do, Cate wrote a book on the whole thing, one that became a bestseller, though was considered crime fiction, and she was more than happy to label it that. She decided to continue work as a criminal psychologist and became a consultant who gained a reputation for her ability to assist Aurors with locating criminals and solving mysterious crimes in the wizarding community. This also began a series of books based on crime investigations and the psychological profiling involved.

Caitlin did take a little time off when Cassandra received her invitation to Hogwarts as well, in order to spend some time helping her get prepared and make sure she was alright to go to the school. The girl had also turned out to be a metamorphmagus, which made things interesting, if a little stressful.

Unfortunately, a young Cassandra also wanted to help, and Caitlin had to keep wards and spells on the door to her office so that the teen wouldn't go snooping whenever she was home. She knew that she meant well, but she wanted Cass to have a normal and enjoyable life, and not worry about the bad things that happened. It was a task, that was for certain, since the girl seemed adamant that she was going to follow in her aunt's footsteps, going so far as to get into fights now and then when standing up for other students who were being bullied.

Aside from a few notes from the school regarding those incidents, everything was great until the last crime Cate had been involved in solving, and the two women ended up finding their own lives on the line when it seemed that they were actually the target of the shadow group that had hunted the rest of their family years prior. They ended up being stalked and hunted and were so close to having ended up on the victims list before being rescued that Caitlin decided it was time for a change.

And so the woman decided to move, heading to Australia where a friend pointed her toward and set her up with an interview at a Magical school in the middle of nowhere, to apply as a school counselor and perhaps a Professor, due to her experience. Cassandra, meanwhile, even though she should be graduated, had taken too much time off in her last year due to the situation they'd been in, and has been enrolled to study at least another semester to try and make up for it.

That first year in Australia though was an eye-opener, and not only did Cassandra discover a great deal about herself (such as her mother being full fae, and not a metamorphmagus), but Caitlin also discovered through events going on regarding Cass' husband and his family, that there was much more to her own history, that she isn't mortal at all but in fact Sorceraic and Fae, and that the childhood she remembers was fabricated... she had in fact existed for a much longer time in a world she didn't remember.

In recent times, she vanished, having traced footsteps to a place that Caitlin believes might have answers.
