Brenna Aithne relishes moments of normalcy. They are growing fewer and farther between. She knows she’s different, and she knows that’s what’s going to keep her alive; but she likes being normal, all the same. If there even is such a thing…

It’s not that she dislikes being a burster; quite the contrary, she finds it fascinating and terribly useful. However, blending in keeps her safe, alive and away from the Coalition. So she blends as best she can. Fortunately, she’s very average-looking: average height, average weight, brown eyes, dark brown hair. She’s purposely avoided anything that will make her stand out; no tattoos, no unusual piercings, no crazy hair colors.

Oddly enough, Brenna spent most of her childhood on the water. She grew up in a coastal town along Lake Superior and has been an avid sail boater since she was strong enough to haul the ropes. Her favorite place was on the deck of the family’s boat, out in the middle of the water. Water brought her back to neutral; water quenches her flames. The Yin to her Yang, as it were.

She left her parents shortly after she finished school; figuring they’d be safer if she were gone. She occasionally drops them a line so they know she’s safe, but she’s careful not to mention where she is, just in case. The Coalition may not be hunting her yet, but she doesn’t want to take any chances. So now she’s out in the world fending for herself, looking for a new place to call home.
