"And you flatter a crying girl too much for her own good." It’s said against his shirt, she finally pulling away with teared filled eyes. "— your shirt… I’m sorry."
"I’ve got more," He said running a hand through his hair and watching her pull away with tears in her eyes. Surely, that was the last thing he ever expected to see Grace do: cry. But then again, the last thing he expected was to be friends with her or have her come to him in the midst of something so… big. Life changing, even. What was the point of Maddox? Was it Maeve? It seemed like it could be a lot more than that, something was going to change him here, he could feel it. It could be Grace’s illness, it could be a multitude of change, but he could already feel himself beginning to soften in a place that had felt cold since the coven died and Maeve left. He told Grace something he told Maeve earlier but she’d disregarded. "I always feel better after a shower or brushing my teeth." He cleared his throat, wondering if he sounded stupid. Instead he shrugged his shoulders. It was a bit embarrassing having her in his hotel room when he’d spent days at the gorgeous room of hers in the Rudd home. "I have an extra tooth brush."
Dakota Wright ► Witch ► 18 ► Cameron Monaghan
I see you lying next to me, with words I thought I’d never speak. Awake and unafraid, asleep or dead.
- Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan by his father
- Was raised knowing all about magic and having a decent understanding. He has embraced it and the world of the supernatural as best as he can.
- He was formally part of a coven that he left in order to go find a friend
Dakota was raised without a mother. Right after he was born she took off like a thief in the night. When he asked his dad about it, his dad merely explained that she couldn’t handle it. It being the fact that her husband was a witch and that meant their son would be too. Some might have thought that Dakota would resent his mother but he had always been the understanding type. Her reaction was one that most people would have that didn’t know about their world. People liked to be kept in the dark about things that could scare them. Besides, he had his dad and he had his dad’s coven. As far as he was concerned his coven was his family. They helped him out whenever he needed it. From a young age it was obvious to everyone that he was gifted when it came to magic. He knew how to handle himself and was able to do spells that most children couldn’t. He showed talent, promising talent just like his father had when his younger.
He attended school like everyone else and made quite a few friends. One of them being Maeve Grantisa, another witch. Most in their community knew about her and some tended to stay away from her. But not him, he was with her whenever he had free time. The two helped each other but tried to keep their friendship on the down low. It was just better off that way. His life was fairly normal up until the day that the massacre happened. He remembered his father waking him up early in the morning, yelling about some kind of emergency. Everyone had heard about it, the killing of an entire coven all save for one. It rocked their community to the core. Hunters had never dared do such a thing and everyone was on edge. Most tried to keep their magic hidden, including Dakota’s own father. Dakota tried to act normal in spite of the fact that he knew he wasn’t. To everyone that knew him, he was still the same. He was the typical teenager who played sports, straight A student and a pretty nice guy. He was popular, girls liked him and he didn’t have that many enemies. Basically he was going through the motions because he was always worrying about the only survivor of the massacre.
A year went by before he finally decided to go searching for her. There was always whispers about a young girl that ventured all over. All he had was a picture of her but that was it. He didn’t know anything else about her or if she was even going by another name. At least until he caught word about the comet in Maddox. He had the feeling that she was there and he decided that it was worth checking out. To the residents of Maddox he has come up with a story about how he’s just traveling before starting college. He doesn’t want people to know that really he’s looking for someone. Especially considering the circumstances of everything. The people of Maddox just think he’s an average, normal guy that has a wicked sense of humor and a sharp tongue. He isn’t afraid to stand up for himself and doesn’t take kindly to people bullying others. He’s always defended those that can’t defend themselves.
- Maeve Grantisa and him are old friends. They grew up together and he actually felt more than friendship for her. The night before everything happened he had admitted to her how he felt. They had kissed before she had taken off. He isn’t sure what’s going to happen when he sees her but that doesn’t matter to him.
- Has met Alfie McKenna and to put it simply, doesn’t like him. He doesn’t like how close he is with Maeve and the fact that he’s a newbie werewolf concerns him. More than once he has told Alfie to stay away from his friend.
- He knows about Sophia Sepherd’s coven and is curious about them but hasn’t gotten to know them just yet.
- There are a few people in town that he can see himself getting along with, like William Rudd, Roscoe Abrams and Annie Fitzgerald.
