Kira Riley, thirteen, and a Sorcerer's Apprentice behind her parents back.
Rebellious, so you'd think her mean? She's actually very nice, sweet, and smart. She loves learning new things, from how to turn one thing into something else, to how to make potions. Kira can be very stuck-up sometimes, though. Making people think that she thinks she's the best at magic, but she knows better than to think that.
Her family isn't something she likes to talk about. her grandmother was gifted in the arts, just as Kira is. She always tries to learn more, though, thinking her teacher as a friend and mentor. Her parents, though, do not agree with her grandmother, and do not want Kira to become a sorcerer, but she doesn't care, and sneaks out at night, tells her parents she's hanging out with friends when she meets up with her teacher. She started only when she was twelve, about a year ago.
From the beginning, she knew she was going to be good at this. She got some stuff from her grandmother after she died. A small ruby red ring, since she's always told her that these type of rings have healing powers, she wears it all the time.
Though that's her favorite piece of jewelry, all of the jewelry the young girl wears is magical. From an obsidian necklace to an amethyst bracelet, she's read all about these things, what powers the crystals have, and she's even learned some spells, though she doesn't use those much.
She uses many crystals. Some to calm herself when she's worried about something, others to control her thoughts and increase her mental power. She has a few favorites, though.
