In Otherworld Oxivius studied necromancy under the tutelage of the Witch of Endor. He has returned from his exile to modern day Portland, now a master of the dark arts Oxivius hunts the street of the Old Port with a hidden agenda of his own.

Amber Sedgewick

Host to the Spirit of Fire

Amber Sedgewick is just your typical socialite, prom queen, cheerleader, and all-American girl. Until she crosses path with the less studious Xlina. After being targeted by a Cephalopod from the infernal realms, Amber is thrust into a contentious friendship with Xlina. Soon her eyes are opened to the Otherworld and the magic lurking just under the surface of her perfectly mundane life.

Amber finds herself defenseless against a bevy of magical threats until she meets the fire spirit, Brick. Not just any fire spirit, Brick is the ghost of fire, the first flame stolen by Prometheus and given to all humanity. Being the ghost of fire, Brick can inhabit a willing human host and share his command of fire with them. He forms an instant bond with Amber and she carries him with her willingly.
